Attention Please


Consider this…
When we stop to pay attention with pure intent to our breathing, or anything for that matter, if that attention is coming from a place of heart and not directed or being directed by our personality or our ego, then the attention is actually love. Perhaps love is a pure intending attention to something or someone. It may be fair to say that the attention or love provokes a feeling of relaxation and oneness as is the case with love in general.

  1. Long ago in a far off land a young woman came to her teacher and asked “How do I know when love is true, is real.” Her teacher replied, “When you can say to another, I love you more than anything I know, I treasure every moment we spend together, my love will be with you always, and if I never see you again, it will be perfectly alright, then you will know love is real.”

    I think this opens up a whole array of ideas pertaining to this question, lots of fuel for discussion. It also seems to support your above comments.

    1. I feel that when you say “more than anything”, and how “each moment is treasured” then yes, that has to be true- (for me- as I can only speak truth for myself).

      Treasuring each moment as a gift, including all of the ones that could potentially be viewed by one as not so pleasant, must be included as part of the love or attention because its part of achieving that state of the purest love of all, unconditional love.

      I feel very strongly that once there is love it cannot be taken away it is always there. So then if, as the sages say, we are love, then it is always there regardless, and only hidden by what we allow to build up on and around us.

      And then taking it to another level, its seems to be all within loving ourselves unconditionally that allows us to be able to reach that level of loving another. I have been struggling with this one for a while as I find it very easy to get caught up in my own self flaws and conditions yet am easily able to over look this in other.
      I will like this conversation to continue leaving on that note.

        1. When we come to the realization that we ARE love, all action IS love and separation dissolves. It’s difficult to stay in this space when so much conditioning works against it. They don’t teach this in our formative years so it’s hard to find later. But worth the effort. I would suggest that rather than learning to love ourselves first, unconditionally, then others, it’s more a matter of everything happening simultaneously.
