Ever felt confused and rather disheartened that people do not respond to you, the way you want them to. I have. Indeed we want people to make us feel happy. Wishing that what we do will somehow make them feel happy and make them love us for what we think we are. But in our attempt to please we do so many "charades" of trying to make us and them happy!
Now imagine that we were able to let go of our preconceptions, motives (ulterior) and expectations and truly just let go of completely of everything that our mind makes us believe and just be our selves. Allowing pure unadulterated genuine love for them. No expectation what so ever. Even if they hurt us, we love them more. Because love is the ONLY natural thing that this world is made of.
Love is the basis of life. Full stop. There is no spiritual practice that does not want you to love each other. Not just your family: but every aspect of this creation.
But first love needs to start from home. Love your dearest ones completely and then the whole world loves you back. Feel the love coming back to you.
I was really struck by the above message this morning. Imagine someone who is lost and he has only 90 minutes to change everything: pretty well depicted in "The angriest man in Brooklyn", available now on Netflix. Pretty cool. Hope you get the same message.
Happy watching and Loving
Remember, Be YourSelf!
