Removing Some of the Obstacles to Love

Love is of consciousness, which is the spiritual within. Yet consciousness is not free, as it’s smothered by the subconscious and is asleep, and so too as a consequence is love.

Negativity in particular destroys feelings of love, engulfing and consuming the mind. It also ruins the ability to be aware in the present moment, as awareness is the manifestation of consciousness.

It’s easy to fall into negativity, and to feel compelled to be negative in response to negative people and what they do. But love cares and understands others. It allows us to put ourselves in other peoples shoes and to understand why they feel negative, whether it is something we’ve done, or expressed towards them, or something that was said.

Negativity forms patterns, and so low emotions and ego states repeat, thus reinforcing and strengthening those patterns and states. When they become stronger it’s not easy to get out of them, unless the patterns can be recognized and you are able to step outside the ego states, by observing them and thus getting knowledge of them.

There’s Not Enough Love in the World and that’s a Problem

It doesn’t take too much to see that there’s too little expression of love in the world, just as there’s insufficient expression of other qualities of consciousness. Family, relationships, and close friends can be a venue to reach out to others, to feel love, express it and receive it back. But due to the state of the human psyche, it’s very difficult for most to feel love outside close family and friends.

Much of the terrible suffering in the world is caused by a lack of love, but few can be moved to do anything about contributing to good and to positive change.

Although some benevolent causes can get helpful responses, overall, each individual lives in their own little world, locked within the narrow framework of a small self-obsessed way of living. And being bound by animal desires, the individual is entrapped within nature’s small framework, and lives within its limitations.

  1. According to the dictionary, LOVE is an emotion of a strong affection and personal attachment. Love is also said to be a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection or the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another. Love may describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one’s self or animals, etc, etc. ..Which is true, but it all depends on individual expression/s 😉

    To me LOVE is,..GRATITUDE FOR BEING & ENDURING, ( Pain or Suffering/s ), UNDERSTANDING BALANCE, SHARING WISDOM, GIVING, LIVING LIFE…..I am not perfect, but I AM SURE IMPROVED. 😉

  2. There are many things mentioned in Belsebuub’s articles which I have no knowledge (experience) of, but he always manages to make me see things more clearly. And, after having gained knowledge myself through observations/experience, I can go back and see that knowledge expressed by him.

    • Yes there are many points of interest that he delves into in a very unique way. It makes one think and take other perspectives into consideration 🙂
