LOVING WITHOUT EXPECTATIONS. What would it be like to love purely, fully, unconditionally, without needing to receive anything back?
Imagine loving another person, or perhaps a group of people, or maybe even the whole world of us without any personal attachments to the nature of that love. Imagine love fully unleashed – love without judgements or fear or agenda, only the pure awareness of love.
So much of our loving is transactional – we give and we get – or we try to keep those scales balanced. The next level is to let go, to be able to open our hearts and love simply for the sake of love.
At the Tuesday Spirit Lab someone mentioned the situation in Afghanistan, but instead of anger towards the Taliban or grief and shame that could make her look away, she only felt love for the Afghani people. She is reading their stories and feeling a connection that is more powerful than the noise machine being generated by our own helplessness and guilt.
It is the love she is feeling that truly supports, that will motivate whatever actions are aligned with her truth and her spiritual connection.
WALKING ON A SPIRITUAL PATH. A conversation about walking the path of spirit with Marina Qutab. There has been a massive shift in our relationship to spirituality, as the tectonic plates of our religious belief systems have been moving and sometimes disappearing.
Many of us have abandoned religions and spirituality altogether, only to feel at some point our hearts pulling us back towards God. “I’m not religious but I am spiritual” has become a mantra of sorts as we explore a more personal relationship with the Divine. What we come to is that true spirituality is not a belief system at all, it is more a path that we walk.
Sometimes the way ahead is not visible, and we are asked to walk into the unknown with our hearts open and trusting that our feet will land on solid ground. Other times we get to a fork in the road and we know we need to make some choices in life and also to deepen our spiritual engagement.
This new spirituality asks us to keep clearing and healing old emotional and psychic wounds so that our path is one of evolvement and opening to life and experiencing true love here.
