Today I understood what love is. After many years of discovering what love is not, this morning it revealed more of itself.
I saw clearly love is a choice.
In the moment, in the second, when we are presented with choice, we need to recognize that this very moment, we have a choice. When we remember ourselves as intelligent creator, we can step aside and consider our next choice. Every act of choice ripples through the ages. Every decision we make is important. Even the tiny ones. They all have affects.
To defer from choosing immediately and as a matter of choice, pause to consider what-is in its entirety (well! as best can be) and ask, “What would love do?”
It is always about choice, the moment continuously asks us for adaptation. A call to select a way forward at any particular time.
Each decision will impact our, your and my, reality. This will in turn echo a change. Your intent will ripple through the waves of life and cause an effect. This affect will transmute into an effect and so on and so on.
To create a heaven on earth, one much choose love every moment. A personal commitment to pause and temper unconscious reaction. A dedication to remember how unconsciously we think things through. For example, back In the sixties, instructions were televised to parents and children, advising sheltering under their desks if an atomic bomb goes off. This now ridiculous idea reveals how inept our awareness and reasoning can be. And if your arrogance protests at this, it means you think you know everything and are missing a great truth.
In seeing what resembles unawareness clearly, one cannot deny something needs doing. Humanity’s stupidity is endless. We can never know all there is to know. We are ever poised on the point of ignorance. It is not a human flaw but rather a great gift, the ability to learn.
When things go awry we analyze and then use this analysis to learn a new way forward. This means we are evolving constantly, there is no end. Evolvement is the crux of this universe.
As we enter into the practice of pausing, the depth of why we need to up our game becomes more intense. We need, as a humanity, to rise up in consciousness. The more aware we become the more we see why it is needed.
At any one second, we ever know what we know. No need to ponder that, our understanding is instantaneous. However, the more important aspect is to consider what we have not readily seen. In the second we are ever missing something of what-is. Therefore, we need to implement a practice where we ask the question, what haven’t I understood?
Uncannily, when this question is posed and a period of silence follows, an answer appears and one cannot deny the wisdom of the answer.
All it requires is a pause.
