In one case your still ignorant but on the path to experience. That’s why you keep repeating
Mind you that repeating is helpful – sets a goal. A reminder. And you realize your struggle in reaching the higher state
The true heart is not in the left side Of side of the chest.
The higher state is where you are there. In that case you will not repeat your love or you will love all. It is just there ! You don’t need a reason to love. It’s just there. Love does not require a reason. It is a manifestation of God.
If you need a reason your very far from your natural divine self.
This is what Ram Dass – Neem karoli Baba said. You decide. Comments anyone?
I am loving Awareness- Part I
I have a practice in which I say to myself, I am loving awareness. To begin, I focus my attention in the middle of my chest, on the heart mind. I may take a few deep breaths into my diaphragm to help me identify with it. I breathe in love and breathe out. I watch all of the thoughts that create the stuff of my mind, and I love everything, love everything I can be aware of. I just love, just love, just love.
I love you. No matter how rotten you are, I love you because you are part of the manifestation of God. In that heart-mind I am not Richard Alpert, I am not Ram Dass- those are both roles. I look at those roles from that deeper “I”. In the heart-mind I’m not identified with my roles. They are like costumes or uniforms hanging in a closet. “I am a reader”, “I am a father”, “I am a Yogi”, ” I am a man”, “I am a driver”- those are all roles.
All I am is loving awareness. I am loving awareness. It means that wherever I look, anything that touches my awareness will be loved by me. That loving awareness is the most fundamental “I”. Loving awareness witnesses the incarnation from a plane of consciousness different from the plane that we live on as egos, though it completely contains and interpenetrates everyday experience.
When I wake up in the morning, I am aware of the air, the fan on my ceiling, I’ve got to love them. I am loving awareness. But if I’m an ego, I’m judging everything as it relates to my own survival. The air might give a cold that will turn into pneumonia. I’m always afraid of something in the world that I have to defend myself against. If I’m identified with my ego, the ego is frightened silly, because the ego knows that it’s going to end at death. But if I merge with love, there is nothing to be afraid of. Love neutralizes fear.
