Loving what is. How is it that in our human consciousness, our being, our energy in human body, why is it we have such a hard time loving what is?
I know for years I noticed, especially when I was younger, when I was a little girl I wanted to be a teenager. When I was a teenager I couldn’t wait to leave the house. When I left the house I couldn’t wait to have a guy. When I had a guy I couldn’t wait to get married. When I got married I couldn’t wait to get divorced. Always somewhere else. Never in the present. Never loving what is.
It wasn’t until I got older and had lots of therapy and lots of spiritual work, active, concentrated effort that I put out, that I began to have some peace around what was happening. I wouldn’t say I actually loved what was, but I started to have a bit of peace around what was at the moment.
What is it with us that we’re always searching, we’re always wanting more? Now I understand it’s not true for all of us. It’s not true for me anymore. It’s true for many people. It seems as if part of the human condition is to always want something that we’re not or don’t have or haven’t yet experienced.
How do we begin to love what is? How do we begin to wrap our arms around our life, ourselves, our family, our friends, our jobs, how do we wrap our loving arms around the circumstances that surround us? When is it time to move on when we can’t love what is? How do we know if it’s not us? How do we check in and decide whether our constant need for something new and different is not something we can shift in our behavior, because it usually is?
