Real love does not break. Whether it is interpersonal love, or the love we feel for the world, we know it is real love because even in difficult moments, the love does not weaken– it remains firm, flexible, and it continues flowing.

Some may think about romantic love and wonder, what about when we end relationships or need space? Well, real love would still remain– people can happily not be together, live their separate lives, and still have love for each other. Even on the non-romantic interpersonal level we can love someone, meaning we want them to be happy and live a great life, but we may not necessarily like the person or want to be around them. This is an important understanding on the way to unconditional love, we can love people without necessarily liking them.

We are accustomed to loving those we are related to and those we are intimate with, but when we begin to take seriously our personal growth in wisdom and freedom, our love expands and encompasses more and more people, though we may not know them personally, the reality of their existence is felt clearly within our own hearts. Love has the tendency to expand strongly into the areas where people are struggling and feeling harm.

It’s important to grow our love and do our best to let it flow boundlessly, because the strength of our love is truly a meter that shows the depth of our own freedom. Wherever our love is limited, wherever our love stops, is a space where we are not free, it is a wall that is limiting our existence, a wall that requires observation and release. Real love is not determined by proximity and it is not determined by our personal preferences. Love does not see enemies, it is not picky, it does not feel more for one than another, love simply is. If we truly want to be free then we must learn to love limitlessly.

From this afternoon until Sunday the 22nd I will be completely offline and will have no internet access because I will be away at a Vipassana meditation course. I won’t be posting until I get back. Tickets for my book launch in NYC are available through the link in my profile, tickets include a copy of my book. Sending love to all beings! 🙏🏽🌎 #yungpueblo

The mind is most creative, effective, and powerful when it is calm. Sending love to all beings. May we all be happy and free. 🙏🏽💙🌎 #yungpueblo

There is no letting go without first allowing honest space for what we feel.

The rest of letting go is a habit that requires cultivation, it is the raising and strengthening of our equanimity, our ability to observe the reality of the moment without developing a craving or an aversion toward it. This is a skill that supports our inner peace and our personal purification, especially if we want to let go of our emotional history that is deeply embedded in the subconscious of the mind. This is why it essential for us to have the courage to try different techniques that can help us cultivate this skill - a practice that provides real results, one that meets us where we are at, one that challenges us without overwhelming us. Vipassana meditation is a technique that helps greatly in letting go. What have you found that helps you let go?

I will be going away to a Vipassana meditation course starting Friday afternoon until Sunday the 22nd. I will be completely offline during that time so that means I will not be posting or responding to messages until I get back. I will post once more on Friday before I go in. If you're interested in Vipassana check out more details through www.dhamma.org

Sending much love to all beings! May we all be happy and free. May we all continue to do the work that our inner peace and wisdom require. 🙏🏽💙🌎 #yungpueblo

It is often the dissatisfaction we experience that motivates us to cultivate deeper levels of inner peace and wisdom. The movement of life shows us where we stand and in which direction it is most beneficial for us to grow in.

Often, when we take our growth seriously and are open to transformation, we reach new heights of awareness through our inner work and proceed to live within the new manner that our understandings have constructed. In time, we go from enjoying our new freedom and integrating our new wisdom to then realizing that we can be even freer and have much more to learn and unlearn.

This isn't to say we are going backwards or that our growth wasn't real, we know this is forward movement because we are no longer in the same place as before - we can measure this by examining the extremes of our heavier emotions i.e. sadness is not as intense as before, anxiety doesn't have the same power over our actions, etc.

Nonetheless, our being ultimately calls us to continue moving forward on our path to freedom. It may seem contradictory, if we have already done much work, should it not be enough? Yes and no. Yes we have brought ourselves to a new place of less tension, but no, most often, the job is not fully completely.

Completely cleansing the mind of all impurities, burdens, and delusions is a long path. The subconscious of the mind, the space that contains our emotional history and baggage that has such a large effect on our daily behavior is vast and full of things that require observation and release.

Understanding that there is so much to heal may seem daunting, but it is inspiring to remember the powerful moments of healing we have moved through in the past. We shouldn't crave the exact thing that happened in the past to happen again, but we should allow those moments to inspire us into remaining open to deeper expansion and release.

Sending love to all beings. May we all use our dissatisfaction as motivation. May we all understand that freedom is a long path that requires good tools. May we all be happy and wise. 🙏🏽💙🌎 #yungpueblo

Slow moments are when we get to practice what we have learned, when we get to see the strength of our patience, when we can measure our commitment to our goals and examine if our happiness is too dependent on their completion, and when we get to see how much more we need to grow to be fully comfortable in the present moment.

When things move slower than what we normally prefer, we get to see clearly the cravings that cause us misery. Like difficult fast moving moments, slow moments are when we are most open to big leaps of growth, they show us what areas of our being need healing.

Sending love to all beings. May we all strengthen our peace so that it may be sturdy throughout all the changes of life. May we all be happy and free. 🙏🏽💙🌎 #yungpueblo

Sending love to all beings. May we all blossom into freedom and happiness. May we all allow ourselves to transform. May we all be happy. 🙏🏽💙🌎 #yungpueblo

These three do require some effort of course, but when we try too hard, when our effort becomes the attachment that causes tension and misery then we are actually pushing our goals further away because craving creates blockages instead of openings.

Sending love to all beings. May we all realize that there is a subtle yet real difference between a goal and a craving- pursing a goal leads to growth while pursuing cravings leads to misery. May we all understand that love, healing, and creativity happen best when there is little to no tension involved. May we all do the work we need to do to be free. May we all be happy and wise. 🙏🏽💙🌎 #yungpueblo
