The experience of love šŸ’—

What can be possible if IĀ 
a) let go of all the strategies and behaviors I’ve put on to achieve closeness
b) let go of all the things I do to avoid criticism or alienation

How much love can I experience then? Who will I become?

If I don’t start to show up as I am, despite the fear of what others may think, I will never be able to receive what I most long for in life. Unconditional love. 

I can see that now.

It can seem contradictory, but the more I have adapted to others and run myself over because of it, the less I have felt loved.  

It has felt like all the affirmations I’ve received is because of the diminution acts I’ve done. The tampering with myself. The sacrifices I’ve made.

Who will I become when I let go of these strategies? Behaviors that only has acted as a flat coulisse, painted to seem three dimensional instead of being just that.Ā 

That is a frightening question. What if there is nothing there behind the backdrop.

But I’ll tell you how it feels. 

First, there is emptiness.

Then I see it. Freedom. And the possibilities.

I sense curiosity and lust, as in a child.

I notice that the moment I let go of my own limiting beliefs and open up to the fact of me not knowing, I set the people around me free. 

What I feel now is a great feeling. Love.

With Joy
