Spirituality can be interpreted in a way that renders one a “doormat,” as though spirituality calls for having no preferences or boundaries of one’s own. But even awakened people draw boundaries, and take action to benefit the ecological whole. Spirituality is not about “not rocking the boat,” out of fear of what might happen. Nor is not about “being bigger” by accepting someone’s imposition upon you.
Silence is the language of God. A conversation on a quote by Rumi.
I fell in love with love itself, and pursued it like a lover, always keeping it on my mind. Bursts of ecstasy and bliss resulted and then they spontaneously took over and pursued me…
VIDEO: Cindy addresses the limitation of love relationships, soulmates, the true source of love, the reality/unreality of the world via separation, who you think you are, three powers you were born with, fear of a future interview, the suffering of imagination, the happiness lie, suffering after someone’s death, the nature of thought, fear being unnecessary, daily death of the thinking mind.
VIDEO: You are seeking answers to why you feel, act, and react the way you do, or maybe you are even questioning who you are. When the student is ready, the teacher appears (to appear). No matter where answers appear to come from–your mentor, a book, your friend, enemy, dog, or a tree–ultimately, they come from within, from your Self. So ask away, because the Truth is available, here and now. Welcome to the catalystic conversation that can unveil it.
Cindy highlights how happenstance happiness, or object happiness, is temporary, while inner joy, peace, and love never sway, no matter what goes on in life. In this way, it is eternal and Divine. But the radio host asks… “Is the joy you speak about self-centred? Listen to her answer now.
Today I saw a mother bird, desperate to feed her babies, attempting repeatedly to get to them.
Would she die of exhaustion trying to feed her babies, who would then die of starvation? Watch the video.
Until you are free, you need a “why” stronger than your attachment to free yourself.
Mother bird had a pretty big “why.” Several of them.
If she had a mind, on the 22nd try she may have thought, “I can’t get in,” believed it, and gave up. Whether or not birds have any sort of thought, we don’t know, but if she did, she certainly did not believe it.
I Want the Relationship to Continue
[27:28] Participant discovers love never came from another, and how not to dump himself. All relationship is truly with yourself, and need not end.
“I think that…I’m unsure of what their actions actually were…and more…concerned with where my mind was going with the situation…not necessarily…I didn’t know if they were being dishonest or not I just know how I felt at the time, or what I was thinking at the time.” That is a big thing to realize because we never actually suffer as a direct result of what somebody does or says, we suffer about our beliefs about what they did or said. I really suggest you download the book because it talks a lot about mind reads. Mind reads are claiming to know what someone else’s intentions (or state) were. If you love this person, and if you what to have true open honesty and pure love with them, then when you notice a mind read, a bade feeling mind read, in your mind–its coming from you don’t forget, its not coming from them–ok?
Would you make better choices in a partner?
How much more free and loving could you then be in a relationship?
Some people are so shocked by the idea of not needing someone that they ask, “But, then what would a relationship be for?”
Such a response reveals how deeply their conditioning goes.
Both my generation and the current generation have been raised in a “romantic era” that is more accurately called an “attachment era.” The majority of our movies and music proclaim a love that needs the other, and that idea is portrayed as a good, romantic thing. Perhaps it comes from the fear of losing someone and therefore needing them to be your “only one” and “forever.”
