It might seem that the person you want to become has to do with how other people see you. How others see you actually has more to do with how you feel about yourself. What we experience in our life is a mirror to what is happening inside of us. Our thoughts and beliefs directly influence how our lives unfold.
Falling in love can feel like we have become possessed, like we have drunk a magic potion, or been stung by Cupid’s bow. We project ideals onto our partner. We think they are the kindest, most generous, most wonderful being in the world. We direct a passion towards them that feels intoxicating. This is our passion for discovering our inner being, our essence. This passion is superimposed over our external partner. In our search for wholeness we love another human being because we are “in love with being in love”.
Before you can attract what you really want in life, you must first go inward and connect to the love within yourself. It begins with knowing that you ARE love. Our true nature, also known as Source, Truth, Consciousness, Soul, or Essence, is within everyone, but sometimes our connection to it gets clouded over by insecurity, doubt, fear, and anger. In other words - our ego.
I write about human behavior, meditation, body awareness, and a variety of other things that pique my interest.
