Love Awareness

Love Awareness

When you have no relationship to another person, you are automatically thrown back upon yourself. The feelings that come out have no basis in what you need or want from others–they simply come out.

When the mind goes beyond normal waking awareness, the transcending process brings one in contact with unconditional love in its silent, unmanifest state. “Unmanifest” means that this love is not directed at anything; it simply vibrates within the nature of the silent witness, like a radio signal silently waiting for a radio to pick it up.

At the end of meditation, the person returns to the waking state bringing some of this transcendental quality into his everyday consciousness. A new vibration has been added that alters, however subtly, the person’s former awareness.

By definition, you can love someone only if your love does not alter no matter what the other person does. A person who feels love “no matter what” is simply following his nature. In truth, this is all that can be asked of anyone. Acting according to your own level of awareness is inescapable.

All of us are radiating our awareness out into the world and bringing its reflection back to us. The curative value of this kind of awareness is enormous.

Thanx.....Though what do you do when your love does alter for someone when they do something you do not like?
Does that mean you are not fully in love??

Love is the most important of all. If you feel some one didn't deserve that love you gave,I am sorry. We shouldn't be sorry for who we love even when we see the faults later in this person.

Great article. Everyone has faults and everyone deserves to be loved no matter what their faults are. We should not judge other people because of bad habits or because we think we are better than that person because we think that our faults are not as bad as someone elses. If you believe that someone does not deserve love because of their faults, than neither do you.
