Living and loving consciously

“Along your path, you will certainly find beautiful flowers, especially during  spring. However one day you will come across with the most alive and fragrant rose. You will become hypnotized by its beauty; it will be like nothing you have seen before.  It will bring you immense happiness. For the first time in your life you will be completely alive. Love will emanate from your being without you having to do anything about it. You will experience the pure bliss of love.

However, as autumn arrives, the flower’s beauty will start to fade away. The rose that once blossomed and was so alive, cannot live forever. The time of death or separation has come.”

Don’t be afraid to fall in love. Don’t be afraid to love while love is alive. It is a gift of existence to you. There is nothing you can do when love is arising within you; you cannot control it, you cannot make it stop. However, there will be also a time when that love will be consummated.

Even this type of love cannot last forever! Only compassion (the love that is not directed to one person but to all living beings cannot be destroyed). So when you feel that your love is vanishing, don’t get attached to your memories trying to revive the past, otherwise you will be trying to love a dead flower.

Acknowledge and be grateful for that great love that once was alive and be ready to move on. Open yourself to the sadness that may arise within you in the same way you opened your heart to that love. Sadness also cannot last forever!

Remember that flowers are blossoming all the time! If you accept the whole cycle of love, sooner than later you will find another love, even greater than the first one and the whole cycle would have started again.

Everything on this existence including your own being will disappear one day; even suns and galaxies are dying and getting born all the time. So live your life as consciously as possible, celebrating each moment as if it was the last one, so when the end is approaching you are not regretful. You have lived your life so passionately that now you are ready to move on to the next stage.

The whole point of life is learning to accept the impermanence of things, so you can live and love as intensely and fearless as possible. This is the only way you will feel gratitude for the life that has been given to you and only from gratitude true love (the one that is beyond this existence) can arise.
