Loving What Is
Dear one, love is like the sun. It doesn’t discriminate between the worthy and the unworthy. It doesn’t bestow its light and warmth only on those who are good. It shines on all alike.
When you love what is, you are loving its soul essence, its indestructible goodness. And by speaking to that, from the love and goodness within you, you participate in a process of subtle-energy alchemy that is powerful, though its effects may take a long while to ripen. Hiro Boga
Loving what is, a term I have learnt from the wonderful work of Byron Katie. Her philosophy challenged me to look at things as they are, it does not mean that I like it or fancy it. It is really looking at the thing and accepting it as it is without adding on how it should be, how I want it to be and what could happen. That approach is really running ahead without really looking at what is in front of you.
Hiro Boga takes it further by saying that loving what is allows you to focus on other's inherent goodness.She is of the view that everyone is born good and that goodness is still buried somewhere deep inside of us.
Loving what is, I have learnt, has allowed me to let go of control, to let go of a whole heap of disappointment when a desired outcome does not happen.
It takes practice
It demands letting go
It required losing the ego
It finds the good that we all have
