Being in a state of love

In which I write about my second enlightenment.

To be in a state of love, to be a being of love, is to be energetically open. Keeping the heart open, no matter what happens. To be energetically open is to accept anything that you experience, yet to let it pass through you as well. This way, there will be no resistance to life. When you are energetically open, you will gravitate toward situations or people of high vibrational frequencies*, and move away from low frequencies. Even if you cannot move away from the low frequencies, you are stable in your core; the lower energy cannot affect you, it will simply pass though you because you do not let yourself be influenced by it. You are present.

Your ego will resist this process by attempting to take over with the manifestation of the pain-body**, through incessant thoughts and negative emotions. However, if you stay present, and keep your body and energy open, you will be able to observe the pain-body as simply a physical manifestation, and not identify with the thoughts or emotions. You are not your thoughts or emotions. Only then will the pain-body be transmuted into love. Only by acceptance and fully feeling the pain-body can this transmutation take place. Darkness cannot rule over light. 

The important thing to do is to keep the heart open. Love, no matter what happens. Do your best. To love and to be open is to be accepting. That way you will learn to have no expectations. You will release the desire to control others, what they think, how they feel, what the outcome should be. You will trust the universe/fate/God, that what happens is meant to happen; everything happens for a reason. To bring about joy or to teach you, so that you can be guided to a better state of being/consciousness. You trust that the universe has good plans for you, and that things will come at the right time. To be trusting, and to be open, to be love, to be accepting, you see the good in the world. You appreciate and are thankful for everything. Your core purpose is to love. Yes, love, even when it hurts. However, when you open your heart to the pain, the pain will be transmuted into peace. 

When you are energetically open, you will no longer feel the need to love yourself, or to love others, or to be loved***. Because you are open, every statement, every motion is one of love. There are no needs anymore. You are accepting of yourself (loving yourself), accepting of others (loving others), and you don’t need to be accepted (no need to be loved in return). There is no more effort involved. You are open to every experience. Because you know that behind every moment is good intention. You are doing your best. You no longer feed the ego, you no longer have a self to maintain, you no longer have a self to love. You act from a deeper place. You are secure in what you do. You don’t have to judge yourself or anyone. There is nothing to judge. When others judge you, you know that it is not personal. It simply passes through you, you don’t have to succumb to the low energy.

You are unafraid. You emit love, receive love, release the received love as love. Live and let live; love and let love.

"The most important aspect of love is not in giving or the receiving: it's in the being. When I need love from others, or need to give love to others, I'm caught in an unstable situation. Being love, rather than giving or taking love, is the only thing that provides stability. Being love means seeing the Beloved all around me.
I'm not interested in being a 'lover.' I'm interested in only being love. In our culture we think of love as a relational thing: 'I love you' and 'You are my lover.' But while the ego is built around relationship, the soul is not. It wants only to be love."~ Ram Dass

*At high vibrational frequencies, you experience joy and peace. Some people recognize this as good, happy, or lucky situations or people. And yes, miracles do come true ^_^
** Taking reference from Eckhart Tolle's use of the word (from "The Power of Now", and "A New Earth"). This describes the part of an individual that usually brings about emotional pain, which usually also takes the form of physical pain. It is the result of past experiences, and attachment to thoughts.
*** Although this is the ultimate goal, one first has to go through the process of learning to love oneself and others. This is not a single-step process and there is no short-cut; one has to learn through moving up the ladder of consciousness. First have a love relationship with yourself, before you realize one day that there is no self to love.

Additional Note:
You don't have to follow every word I say; after all, language is limiting, and my words are only a sign post. However, if you are receptive, you will discover what I mean, and how to implement it, in your own way. Trust in the universe/God, and it/He/She will show you in its/His/Her own way that only by relinquishing control, you gain more control over what you desire.  Yes, life is ironic that way. =) However, always know that you are loved and protected. Just open your senses to the signs. Be thankful, and life will give you more to be thankful for.
Also remember to always be humble. When you get complacent, thinking you've got it all nailed down, life will always find a way to show you otherwise. The lesson will repeat itself until you learn what you are supposed to learn. Love and presence (which is what meditation really is) is a constant practice.
