The ultimate experience is not excitement, wealth, power, or fame. It is love.
Now, love has a secret.
The secret it this: We want to be loved, but much more so do we want to love someone or something. If you know that secret and live by it, heartache becomes a thing of the past. It is our higher nature to love.
Our soul is made of love and we can’t help but radiate it and love people, nature, and experience.
When we get caught up in the struggle for survival and is subjected to all this seeming negativity around us, we refuse to love.
“A pearl before swine,” we think.
That happens when we turn from innocent children into disillusioned adults. That’s the moment we forget our soul.
Our mind can’t stop our soul from loving unconditionally. It continues to shine, whether we like it or not, like the sun behind dark clouds. As we grow older and wiser, and learn to appreciate both good and bad experiences, the clouds disperse and we return to being a soul instead of a person.
And the day comes we need to make a decision, whether we remain in a sour state of mind or go beyond and aim for enlightenment.
If we take that step, we become like children again and rediscover our ability to love everything and everybody. We return to a happy, beautiful, and meaningful life.
We return to love.
And peace of mind.
