Desire vs love
What is love. When do we operate from love and when is it from desire. Have you ever though about it. Questioned your own motivation to move around. Where in the depth of you psyche is the seed planted. How far does the roots go. Do we desire that what we love? Do we love what we desire?
Too often I’ve confused desire with love. Many times what I've desired I thought I loved. More times than I can count I was not coming from a place of love. Love was the way to get what I desired. Not many times was that love authentic or real. It was just a way for me to get to what I needed or thought I needed to have, to possess. I clinged on to it with everything I had. That desire was rooted in something else than love. The seed of it was deeply rooted in fear. If one moves from a place of lack the ways of going about it to reach that goal is not fair play. Sometimes we mask it with love, or I did anyway. Thinking about it I see the form of control it required. Controlling what I desired and making sure it was mine.
The joke was on me. For you can never control anything that supposed to come to you freely. Whatever you cling on to looses its magic. It’s like your breath. Trying to cling on to it you loose it. The same goes with love. You need to let it go and it will come right back to you. If not - it’s not yours to have. Controlling it restricts it. The funny part was that my desires controlled me. Consumed me. Moved me from a place of less. I lost myself chasing my desires. It can make you do the weirdest things. I can’t really begin to explain the things I’ve done coming from a place of lack; some I’m not proud of, some I can laugh at and some are ridiculously ridiculous. What can make people act like that? The essence is not love, that I am sure of. Fear was the huge source of fuel for me and made me move around with a starving look in my eyes.
Can you separate love from desire? What do you desire and why. How does the desire make you feel. Is it fueled by something greater or is it fueled by a thought of lack, that you’re not enough. Or, if you just had this or that you would be better off, feel better, be complete. Not remembering you already are and already have is making you less than. When do we stop and ask these important questions? What is your desire? Where does it come from. Do you love what you desire. Think you need it to function. Or get one up on life. On the universe.
Now close your eyes and take a deep breath. Let it fill you up. Hold it at the top. Open your mouth and let it go. Acknowledge the second breath equally. It comes automatically. This is love. This is the natural flow of life. Let the dead leaves fall. What is yours will always always always find its way to you. Don’t confuse desire with love. Acknowledge where the desire is rooted. It’s going to be a life changer. Believe me. Love is love. It’s whole in itself. It’s everything. It’s not coming with conditions. I as an ego do. But love doesn’t. Love just is what it is. Doesn’t ask for more. But the ego does. Love is just the right amount. But my desires aren't. I am not that desire.
Love is the essence of the universe. The secret of all secrets. We came out of it.
Love is our perfume.
We are love.
