V-Day Triumph

"Each of us creates a personal dream for our own self, but the humans before us created a big outside dream, the dream of human society. The outside Dream, or the Dream of the Planet is the collective Dream of billion of dreamers. The big Dream includes all the rules of society, its laws, its religions, its different cultures, and ways to be. All of this information stored inside our mind is like a thousand voices talking to us at once. The Toltecs call this the mitote.

The real us is pure love; we are Life. The real us has nothing to do with the Dream, but the mitote keeps us from seeing what we really are. When you see the Dream from this perspective, and if you have the awareness of what you are, you see the nonsense behaviour of humans, and it becomes amusing. What for everyone else is a big drama, for you becomes a comedy. You can see humans suffering over something that is not important, that is not even real. But we have no choice. We are born in this society, we grow up in this society, and we learn to be like everyone else, playing nonsense all the time, competing with mere nonsense…you have no wounds in your emotional body. You are not afraid to be who you are. Whatever someone says about you, whatever they do, it doesn’t hurt.”
~ The Mastery Of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz

This is the ultimate Love, the love and respect you have for yourself. I’m extremely fortunate to have this rare gem in a world that defines ‘Love’ as something that you can only get from being in a relationship; and that being in a relationship determines your self-worth.

No one can validate you. No one can make you happy or whole. Your approval is the only one that’s required, the only one that counts. Happy Valentines Day.

P.S. and remember, it’s NOT Love when it’s all about you and your selfish needs.

  2. hey
    i agree that happiness shud come frm within...and leaning on someone else fr a self esteem boast is the wrong way to start it all.. one of the sad things is that ...though we realize it...its still easy for us to succumb to such a fate..

  3. Minhaj - You shoulda posted it anyway. And LOL, great that you have so much love going around ;)

    Ammara - I think when you "OWN UP" to who you are... your good side, your faults & shortcomings, your insecurities, Everything... you come to accept yourself for who you are, and you don't look for that validation in someone else. I think too many people are not honest with themselves and are always trying to be anyone but who they really are. Sad really.
