Love. It's pretty simple, yet somehow, its something we make so complicated.
Over the years I have experienced and seen so many heart breaks, and yet I have also had the opportunity to fall in love with such depth as well. Over time I came to realize, it was me, doing the heart break, so that I could find myself. So that I could learn to love myself.
The one love we seem to neglect the most, is our love for the self, for ourselves. It is the most intimate, most integral and yet seems to be the most intimidating. It spins us into roller coasters, finding our way through experiencing reflections, envisioning others, and practicing to harness a balance between protecting our heart space and opening so wide so to elevate.
To love is to elevate. It is who we are at our deepest level, our core and this love, we cannot find in any other, unless we find it within ourselves first, so that we can truly have and hold, a picture of one, we can maintain. The image will "remain the same", or rather, will be there to build off of one another, so that we, together can elevate each other.
To me, this is what a conscious coupling is. To find someone, in someway, as you have come to find yourself, so that as you have found how whole you are, you can then begin to build something else, a greater facet of who we are. A larger form, an elevated awareness of one and of all, together united to rise above.
To me, thats what romance is for, not to escape from what we are here for, yet rather, to offer us a way to express our hearts even more, to support each other's visions, dreams and ideas of inspiration. To formulate a path, where we each experience a heightened state of being.
What's so blissful about finding this awareness and truly knowing it is grounded within your being, you actually begin to realize, it is all about the self. It is all about you, loving yourself and that when you dig deep enough, you no longer hold fear of letting others in, from any walk of life, that you can allow yourself the freedom to create a relationship and bond, between everyone and everything that is as tight as can be, and each bond you have, holds a different lock and key. That each are unique, and hold their own story.
So whether you want to formulate a conscious connection in romance or in business or with tribe/family, each will be able to have the freedom to feel sure about where they are individually going. There becomes no restrictions really.
Once we release those restrictions around what we think we need, we can therefore harness healthier relationships with all and thus creating more long term lasting bonds, those of which will be the eternal bonds that we create, as one.
This is how we formulate new paradigms, and thus the birth of new love lives, that empower us all to rise.
Then when we connect as one in each area, there is no added pressure, because we know, we have found ourselves, and that is what lead us to each other. No longer needing to "hold on" to each other, yet rather, stepping into "how can we maintain our levels?".
Now that's powerful.
