To see through the eyes of Mettã
To offer love and kindness with no agenda, simply because it is good for humans to offer love and to receive it, to be shown kindness and to give it.
This is where real healing happens. This is where the real work is done.
Cut through all of the vails and the hang ups, the trauma and the hesitation, see the real parts of yourself, for who you are beneath it all, and see your partner in that same light. It’s the ugly crying and the sweet sobbing, the bashful smiles and the deep belly laughter that emanate from this place of genuine self.
Then Love that place!
Get to know this place, feel through the uncomfortable parts of the body, let the gaze try and pull away from the eyes of another, but hold fast, see deep and become aware of the aversion to truth. It is only after we get passed this place of hesitation that we can start to see reality.
Learn to offer unconditional love with no attachment to the receipt of affection. With some practice we begin to unfold our minds idea of how we love and then rewrite the process into something centered in benevolence, in kindness, in free spirited, hippy dippy love... The good stuff:)
