WHEN YOU ARE CHOOSING TO POUR YOUR LOVE INTO SOMEONE, TO SURRENDER DEEPLY INTO LOVE… YOU ARE CHANGING THE WORLD.
It does not mean that you become blind and put the other person on a pedestal, as if their personality was perfect. Oh no, surrendering to love requires an enormous amount of clarity.
It is only from clarity that we can choose something as radical as love.
And from that clarity you see the games that your mind wants to play, all the ways in which you are pushing away the love, all the ways in which your mind is looking for (and finding!) flaws in the other, all the ways in which you want to feel your own importance and punish the other person for their “wrongdoings”… You see all of it… and consciously choose not to follow any of them. Instead… you let yourself crack. And you feel. And nothing is too much for you to feel.
It is only the mind that’s scared of being overwhelmed.
And not for nothing!
The mind gets overwhelmed easily.
And the mind… is not capable of love.
It’s only something deeper in us that has this capacity.
It is only something so deep, all the way down to our soul.
That place… yes.. that place knows how to love.
I have discovered a sacred assignment.
My assignment is to love you.
To love you so deeply I cannot hear the rants of my mind.
To love you so deeply I act with absolute certainty, though I may not have the slightest idea what I
will do next.
I know nothing but the deep certainty of love, and how it wants to be expressed in this present moment.
In this surrender… I allow everything to arise, and I feel into its depth. I open as everything. I open as the entire cosmos.
