Love isn’t the needy attachment-based dependency on others, that so often turns from love to hate, the moment the other person doesn’t provide what we need.
True love is beyond the egoic mind-state and comes from the pure essence of our soul. It isn’t conditional, based on physical attraction or needs.
Real love has no opposite and it’s not real love if it turns to hate, that is a story of our minds.
I could take life without a spoon, an Xbox, a smartphone, the internet, yeah I really did say that as I am publishing another blog on it, I could always publish it old school as say a paper. Much of what the world holds up as important, I and you could do without. In fact, we’d be better off without.
I couldn’t live without art, music, people, nature, books, and most of all love. Imagine a world without any pictures or music. Even more, imagine a life without having love, there is no life. Yet the world is filled with hate and for example, the arts considered as a waste of time. Now, miraculously, healthcare specialists finally waking up to the benefits to our mental and physical health of being in nature, wow what a revelation eh!
Strange how much not having the internet seems to stress the whole world out more than say, not having time to appreciate art or being loving towards each other. Hate is the norm, but we could all do without it.
