The Illusion of Romantic Love & Four Elements of Love

Last night I was at home editing my second poetry book called Awakening to Love. Initially, this poetry book was supposed to be called This Eternal Romance and it was meant to publish it early this year on Valentine’s Day. However, it wasn’t meant to happen, as my definition on what love is has radically shifted, with a 180 degree change, particularly in the past month.

Behind Every Great Woman, There is Her Mother

My mother is everything I am not. She is all practical, pragmatic, logical, rational, remarkably grounded in the material world, the realist. I am all about the transcendent, the ethereal, the spirit world, the other-worldly, the dreamer. She is all passive, all-enduring, she accepts whatever life is throwing at her. I am the rebellious, the non-conformist, the wild and the free spirit.

Release the Dark Wound, Let Love Live.

If we detach something from its source too soon, trying to force it to become what it is not yet ready or willing to become, we can unintentionally sap it of its strength and kill it. There is a dark wound in the consciousness of humanity which demands perfection and denies process. If you are thinking of publishers before you have even written the book, if you are comparing your unfinished song idea to the latest bestselling pop release, if you have decided you are not good enough or worthy enough to succeed before you've given it everything you've got and asked for divine help, then this dark wound has you in its grasp.

The Paradoxes of Life, Love, Human Nature & Existence

Life is full of paradoxes, love is full of paradoxes.
We want to experience this intense deep connection with someone, a soulmate, a twin flame, honouring the divinity in each other, showering each other with roses, drowning in kisses, enveloping in sultry blankets, retreating into a cocoon of love;
Yet we also want to roam the world freely, unhindered by attachments, spreading our wings like eagles, soaring high in the sky.
We value deep connection, intimacy, security, commitment, also desiring absolute freedom, venturing into the unknown fearlessly, the transcendent, the elastic expansion into the infinite.

You Attract What You Are

The law of attraction is the constant law of the Universe. ou are who you attract. Everything is energy; everything is vibration. If you feel your current partner is not satisfactory, or you can't attract an ideal partner, then perhaps it is wise for us to look within instead of constantly seeking outside. Our partner often acts as a mirror. Through our partner, we can understand ourselves better. When you complain
the other is not good enough, first, observe your own thoughts:think about why I attract this particular person, or this particular kind of relationship into my life in the first place.

The Dream (Osho Zen Tarot)

Some enchanted evening you are going to meet your soulmate, the perfect person who will meet all your needs and fulfill your dreams. Right? Wrong! This fantasy that songwriters and poets are so fond of perpetuating has its roots in memories of the womb, where we were so secure and "at one" with our mothers; it's no wonder we have hankered to return to that place all our lives. But, to put it quite brutally, it is a childish dream. And it is amazing we hang on to it so stubbornly in the face of reality. Nobody, whether it's your current mate or some dreamed-of partner in the future, has any obligation to deliver your happiness on a platter - nor could they even if they wanted to. Real love comes not from trying to solve our neediness by depending on another, but by developing our own inner richness and maturity. Then we have so much love to give that we naturally draw lovers towards us.

Why Conventional Marriage is Not For Me

Marriage is a topic I despise openly. To speak negatively against marriage does not mean that I am against love. I am actually 100% for love but 100% against the social construct of marriage. I understand my views can be quite different from most people and there are people who are happily married and found the marriage system has worked for them. I respect those who follow the conventional path and found it worked, so this article is probably not for everyone. This article is written for those (especially women) who are not willing to settle down according to society's prescriptions.

The Lovers

What we call love is really a whole spectrum of relating, reaching from the earth to the sky. At the most earthy level, love is sexual attraction. Many of us remain stuck there, because our conditioning has burdened our sexuality with all kinds of expectations and repressions. Actually the biggest "problem" with sexual love is that it never lasts. Only if we accept this fact can we then really celebrate it for what it is - welcome its happening, and say goodbye with gratitude when it's not.
