Unconditional Self Awareness

The only real unconditional love is your own inner stillness, your own inner awareness and acceptance.

Suffering is seeking and expecting love from others while still judging and denying ourselves internally.

Meditation & Time

You know how when things are bad, time seems to go too slowly and when things are good time can seem to pass too quickly? Meditation helps that, so that when times seem bad you’re just present to what actually is so that your mind doesn’t go off into fantasies of worst case scenarios or excessive worrying. And when times feel good it allows you to realły be present to them and cherish those moments fully.

Love what arises… again… and again…

The more you love yourself, the more life will show you where you are not loving yourself, so that you can love that as it arises.

This means that when you feel unloved, unlovable, or not good enough, it is an indicator that you are doing a great job of loving yourself so that unloved, unlovable, or not good enough, can arise to be loved… and the appropriate response to that is to celebrate and love for yourself more, not less.

There will be no test today… again

God is not testing you. God is never testing you. It is you who is testing God, playing games and asking if God still loves you when you see yourself as so pathetic, failing and stumbling. But no, still no testing, still nothing but love and support and acceptance, even for you playing such games. You cannot fail enough, struggle, nor stumble enough to get God to turn its loving gaze from you. This is what it means to be God, and one day you will come to realize that this is what it means to be you.

Boys to Men

The sad truth is that you may not want men to be childish, and insecure, and immature, but that’s what you get when you tell them as kids that they shouldn’t feel, shouldn’t cry, shouldn’t be boys, should “grow up” and “be a man”, when they don’t have a foundation of self to build on.

This is a recipe for man-child, and men resent this aspect of themselves as much if not more than any observers might. Because again and still, were expected to not feel, not cry, “grow up” and “be a man.”
