Love is being present

Note to Self:

Isn't the greatest manifestation of LOVE is simply being present, in the moment, with someone? No where else to be, nothing else to do, nothing to watch on tv, no entertainment needed, no expectations. Just Being... This ability to just BE..and enjoy the "being-ness". Isn't this Love? 


Isn't that the greatest threat to any relationship too? That loss of being able to be present. The threat of the past. Past hurts. Past failures. Lurking in every conversation. Ever present ghosts.The loss of faith that the future can be any better? And all of these things that creep into the mind and the relationship and keep you from BEING PRESENT. It becomes self perpetuating and it's hard to break the cycle. The result is that the PRESENCE that attracted you into the relationship in the first place, suddenly seems to ONLY exist outside of it. 


When two can share this presence it's powerful...and when it's tasted the first time it's mysterious and amazing and addictive. The world comes alive. It's that space we share with someone, that give's us the ability to love ourselves and to see that love reflected through the eyes of another. It doesn't have to be lovers. It can be any two people with any two energies. Two friends, the Healer and Healed, Mom or Dad, Sister or Brother, two complete strangers... even these "identities" are irrelevant. Any of us can be present with anyone at anytime...right? Be present, and share a smile in the grocery store. Be present, and ask someone about their day. Be present, and hear their words. Be present and feel someone's touch. Just listening without judgement is being present. Interacting without concern of how something relates to you is being present.


Is it really this simple? It seems that Love is anywhere I truly AM.  


BE the love you seek. BE that presence you seek. The hardest thing is letting go of the expectation that anyone other than you will BE there too...the fear that no one will show up. So instead there are checklists and conditions and..  


Let go... and BE pleasantly surprised.

Just a personal note: There is nothing new under the sun. I am just attempting to present info. here that has helped me. I hope to present it in a clear way based on my experience with anxiety which was a spiritual, psychological and emotional awakening for me. In retrospect of this experience I have been reading as much as I could to come to a deeper and more grounded understanding of this seemingly mystical thing that happened to me (so that I could share it with you). I'm not a doctor or a scientist. Please know this is only my experience. Yours will obviously be different, but since my experience was so similar to others I've talked to, I am hoping this may be helpful or useful to you in some way. It's also a way that I hope to share the love with you. That is my purpose here.
