The mind is busy, talkative, restless. Love is vast, silent, unconcerned. I share here an imagined dialogue between love and the mind, written by Tiger Singleton…
Love seems to hurt, because love is incredibly honest.
The mind screams… “I want your love.”
Love says… “I’m sorry, but you can’t, because in order to want me, you think I’m not already here. So you deny yourself, by looking for me where I am not. Demanding, I show up in ways that say you are more important than everything else I touch.
The mind cries, and says… “But don’t you love me?”
Love whispers back… “No, It’s not like that, my love isn’t personal, my Love IS. You want to be special, rather than being what is, which is where I Am.”
The mind… “I don’t understand.”
Love… “You never will. To think you understand me, is to define me, which is to restrict my flow, saying some are worthy and some are not and you desperately want to be the worthy one. You want me to come to you, rather than you, falling into what I already am”
The mind… “How can I surrender into you?”
Love… “You can’t, because I’ve already surrendered, everything, including you. You are free, it’s already done.”
The mind… “What should I do?”
Love… “It doesn’t matter, I love you regardless, I support you regardless, I am always with the present moment, so rest here. Feel me. And then see what happens. In this space, you simply cannot go wrong.”
The mind… 🙏🏽
