Adults spend most of their time judging and analysing what is wrong. We have ideas about how people should behave and how we should behave ourselves. We have accumulated so many rules and regulations that we spend a lot of our time struggling to function socially. We are always comparing and categorizing everything and everyone around us, always trying to fit ourselves into an “ideal” way of being.
Fundamentally we believe that there is something wrong with our human experience. We judge our thoughts, feelings and emotions. We judge our partners and friends, our parents, our children, our political leaders, our financial situation, environmental conditions, certain ethnic groups, our sexual preferences and those of others. There are so many aspects of our human experience that we have learned to judge, that it would be quicker to list things that we do not judge.
And let’s not forget the judgments we have with our bodies. Modern society is increasingly obsessed with youth and physical beauty. Not made to measure we struggle with scales, wrinkles and grey hair, constantly struggling with the illusion of time..
We must rise above these judgments and intellectual complaints to embrace ourselves and the world around us with innocence and blissful acceptance.
From the perception of love-consciousness, there is nothing wrong anywhere.
The present moment vibrates in unity; There is no duality when we are anchored in the here and now.
When we experience love-consciousness, we realize that everything is perfect exactly as it is. We may want to change things forever, but in reality, nothing will ever change. The outside is only a mirror of our own discontent.
When we make an internal change, and begin to love ourselves, we choose to embrace the beauty of what is happening now, instead of focusing on what we perceive as bad. And so, love will continue to grow instead of fear. In doing so, our power to make positive changes in our lives is enhanced.
When we go deeper and deeper into the experience of love-consciousness, everything becomes more enriching and satisfying.
Until we embrace love-consciousness we are totally unaware of life, unable to see beyond the limits of our tiny intellectual boxes, believing that we are that. Even if we change places outside, nothing changes, since we carry our little world with us everywhere.
Fullness, peace, joy and love do not come from the outside.
The only thing that can fill the human heart is love-consciousness, and we have abandoned it. But when we are anchored to that experience, we automatically find fulfilment. We discover an inner peace and bliss that never changes and is always present, always calling us home.
