Many of us, identify a false Source of Love.
The man or woman we are attracted to for example.
We choose them as a Source of; Love, Validation, to not reject us. To see us. To affirm us.
We make them the Source.
And often, what follows is a slow, decline, away from our truth.
We become what we feel they want-so they will ‘accept us’. When in fact they are accepting our false projections.
In some cases, we alter our tastes, to fit theirs, to be in alignment. When in fact, we are once again sidestepping away from our own desires.
We build them up on a shrine of holy significance, not seeing their own human flaws, or ways in which they are not ‘meeting us’ because we so deeply want to be met, that we often craft an illusion.
We lose sight of our truth.
We lose sight of reality.
And thus begins the fall from Grace. From Truth. From the TRUE source of Love.
We then begin to shame the other for not being who we thought they were. (Guess what they were always flawed, we just chose not to see it).
We begin to demand they become what we think we Need.
We put demands on love.
We demand to be loved on certain conditions.
Then we suffer. We suffer because we believe we were wronged. Our heart is breaking. We lost something.
When in truth.
We deluded ourselves. We did not look at the Truth. We wronged ourselves. It is our illusions that our breaking. It is our attachments we are losing.
We made another, the Source of Love. This never works.
People can evoke Love within your Heart. You will love them. Yes! But they are not the true Source of Love.
And in recognizing this, we can show up as we are. We can allow others to show up as they are.
And we can SHARE the Love that is for all of us.
