EGOIC MIND DOES NOT DIE
IT ONLY SHAPE SHIFTS
∞…TRANSFORMS INTO SERVANT OF SOUL…∞
SOULFULLY CHEWED & SWALLOWED FOOD ASSIMILATES…
..SHAPE SHIFTS IN ORDER TO FUEL PHYSICAL BODY
ALIGNING/MERGING BODY WITH SOUL…
ENTIRE CONSCIOUSNESS AN UNFETTERED EMBODIED SOUL
Don't try to cover things over with a pretense of love...
a shadow love.
Just let things be as they are.
Your responsibility is to be real, authentic -
There is great healing in this.
Maintain your integrity through authenticity.
Go beyond the shadow of love...
fingers of delusion,
misdirected energies and perceptions.
Don't aspire to love - but aspire to be real.
Be clear and transparent.
an egoic pretense, it dissipates.
Let love dissipate to reveal what's beyond
Don't be fooled by the magician's love.
as we define love.
It is Presence.
Being genuinely present from the place
Love is that Presence living us...
The mind is busy, talkative, restless.
Love is vast, silent, unconcerned.
I share here an imagined dialogue between love and the mind,
written by Tiger Singleton…
The mind screams… “I want your love.”
Love says… “I’m sorry, but you can’t,
because in order to want me,
you think I’m not already here.
So you deny yourself,
by looking for me where I am not.
Demanding, I show up in ways
that say you are more important
than everything else I touch.
“But don’t you love me?”
Love whispers back…
“No, It’s not like that,
my love isn’t personal,
my Love IS.
You want to be special,
rather than being what is,
which is where I Am.”
Love… “You never will.
To think you understand me,
is to define me,
which is to restrict my flow,
saying some are worthy and some are not
and you desperately want to be the worthy one.
You want me to come to you,
rather than you,
falling into what I already am.”
Love… “You can’t,
because I’ve already surrendered, everything,
You are free, it’s already done.”
Love… “It doesn’t matter,
I love you regardless,
I support you regardless,
I am always with the present moment,
so rest here.
And then see what happens.
In this space,
you simply cannot go wrong.”
The mind… 🙏🏽

Love Says…by Alain Joly
Each of us needs to
withdraw from the cares
which will not withdraw from us.
be dead to yourself,
be totally dead.
Then act as you will
and your action
will be right."
