How Love Can Keep You Honest

I have issues with uncertainty. When I don’t know what lies ahead, I tend to feel uncomfortable. Decision-making is sometimes difficult for me because the inability to know how a particular decision will play out sometimes leads me to paralysis. However, my meditation practice has helped me with this. Quieting my mind and experiencing the present moment helps to silence the anxiety and appreciate the beauty of the unexpected.

Sometimes, though, I slip up. In the heat of the moment, when I am most intensely feeling the fear of making a mistake – choosing a path that will lead to failure or intensity – it is difficult for me to remember the lessons I’ve learned from my practice.

This is often where my fiancÚ comes in. He reminds me to be authentic, to practice what I know I believe. My first reaction to this sometimes is to become defensive, but on reflection, I recognize the truth of what he says. I am trying to lead an intentional life, and my fiancÚ understands what those intentions are. He keeps me honest and brings me back to my intentions and beliefs when I am too worked up to remember them myself. Helping someone remain true to her authentic self is an amazing expression of love.

What you think is what you create for yourself. We also need to establish which type of love is being discussed here as their is two types.
Conditional Love and the real Love Known as Unconditional Love.
As we have allowed others to think for us we have become conditioned and controlled so most of us operate in Conditional Love which is why divorce is through the roof and abortions out of this planet.

Maybe stupidity is the way. Ignorance is bliss.

Whoo Hoo! I'm loving these posts acknowledging God as the source of true everlasting and unconditional love that oft times is not present in human to human relationships. And it is only by knowing God that we do realize that Love MUST generate from within! That too is a gift from God as we draw closer to him. Pretty hard to give love that is everlasting when we've not experienced it ourselves and with God, that is the only possible way!!!
