Unconditional Love??????

Unconditional love does not require a passive acceptance of whatever happens in the name of love. Rather, in the real spaces of our daily relationships, it means maintaining a commitment that no condition will keep us from bringing all of who we are to each other honestly.

Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening
No distraction, fear, unworthiness, or doubt exists for long in our consciousness. Emotionally charged thoughts arrive, stay a short time and fade when we are present in this moment, aware of now.
Action replaces wandering thought when we heal. We move from spectator, avoiding life from a distance to fully living, taking action no matter the external pressure.
Our challenge is to let go of the crap that takes us away from now, where happiness or life exists.
The mind is like a muscle in a way, it can be trained to work for us, to energize us, to heal us. The mind responds favorably to daily practice, the structure of calm, the absent of numbing thoughts invading our consciousness.
The real world is found below the ego, below the cognitive, below the wandering emotional thought, below the fear and worry.
Free yourself, let thoughts fade and be here, now, to live in this moment.
It is all there is, now.

  1. It is a bit strange to realize I have been living more from this place. It’s a little weird, good, but weird.
    I appreciate what you share here. Thanks.

    Love the picture – where did you get it? Oh by the way beautifully written. Nothing like a little puppy love.

  3. Pic is from net.

    The place where emotions and thoughts lined with fear recede without affect. We act in this moment and live as fully as possible.

    When we find us grasping thought, we can always come back to now immediately.

  4. So keep going and the weird will subside and this new, present accepting space will be comfortable, habit, enjoyable
