When it comes to love
It can feel like walking on water or air, so free and inspiring. But how do people know real love?? Because it is not exciting, or passionate, or something that goes low and then high, or something that makes you go crazy.
All this is the fulfillment of a need in you. You were depressed before, felt lonely; and now you found attraction, someone you like, and you confuse this exciting and new event in your life with true love. Is it true love though?? How sure are you??
When it comes to self-awareness
Sadly, the average human being, or most of us, are needy and always seeking fulfilment outside of us. So, if I don’t find it outside me, then I cannot feel loved and happy. And, if I do find it outside me, then I feel so loved and so happy.
This is very narcissistic, selfish, truly short in self-awareness; but it doesn’t sound like this to you, I’m sure, because it is how most of the world live so it is the “normal” way. But, the truth being, that it is all about making use of self-awareness in this life. Self-awareness will tell you if it is true love, true happiness.
When it comes to all pleasure
Self-awareness is like calming, never-ending waters in a vast ocean. So, when you meet someone, or when you sleep with someone, or when you marry someone, seek within your mind this self-awareness, this calming water.
Seek beyond any excitement, passion, sexual or emotional fulfillment. For us to find the truth, self-awareness, the real answers, we must go beyond the fulfillment or pleasure we feel. Fulfillment and pleasure are fine, but they are just superficial events.
When it comes to really knowing life
It’s like the agitated waters in the ocean. This agitation is not the true state of the waters, too much motion and things going on to really experience the majesty of the waters. It might be exciting, but it has to end at some point.
So, always seek self-awareness, beyond the superficial things you think and feel. Seek the peace. If you’re patient enough, the peace, the calmness, will speak the truth to you about love, happiness, and about all the things you experience in life.
