this statement is true for 'love'
but not for 'unconditional love'.
to love unconditionally is to love without fear of 'losing' something you you don't have.
a person says,"i want love in my life"..ok,how does he go about getting that?
he 'gets' it by giving it away.
once you give something away,you(your soul) knows you 'have' that....
or else you could not have given it away.
peace and thanx
new,i'm truly sorry about your dog.
my cat of 7 years,masaya(the momma kitty),went missing 6 days ago and it's been harder than i thought.
we have a lot of foxes and coyotes and her brother,fogo,was gone with her for 3 days but came back injured..at least he's home and ok.
call me a puss,but i miss her a lot.
My dog is fine right now man, it's only 3 years old but it's like the one thing I'm afraid of losing right now because he keeps me grounded and helps me get up in the morning! Thanks for your thoughts Boon

Is this why Buddists seek to avoid all attachments in life and is this the only way to truely free your mind? Most people would say the meaning of life is to learn how to love but how do you love without the fear of loss? You could say that the feeling of love itself is just another chemical produced by the body that becomes an addiction of the highest level. We humans will do anything to preserve our love for one thing or another no matter what the cost. If someone really want's to achieve spiritual enlightenment would it not make sense to avoid feelings of love? It seems like love serves to limit one's true freedom through fear.

The thing is tho I don't have much love for anything else (even my own family who are good people) and I feel like I want to leave my family life behind and explore the world without fear. The thing is they are not "awake" and cling to love for comfort. I see the big picture and the scope of the universe while my family see's the classic settle down with a job and start a family. I see myself as a temporary observer and realise life can end at any moment. I want to feel free and not restricted by the fear of loss but it's hard when everyone around you is caught up in the illusion of life in our society.
Well said, i feel the same, im very into the things that happening theese day's and i believe in E.T.'s but my family kinda thinks im crazy and tell me that the only way is th Bible way (God/Jesus). i agree many things in the bible are true and i prefer too life like them, but i also think that the Bible is a collection of even so much older writings of ancient civilications B.C like the sumerians. I do believe in The Source" who is responsible for all life in the universe and beyond.. hard to explain.
hope the real truth will come out soon and i hope it will be braught by ET's lol.
at the same time it's not like there's a Jedi academy that I can join and learn the ways of the force.
you guys have seen me write this before
you don't need to join anything to 'learn' anything.
your soul knows all the answers to every question you could ever come up with.
you just have to remember.
put it all together.
you can you know.
"Doing stuff is overrated.Like Hitler.He did a lot.But don't we all wish he woulda' just stayed home and gotten stoned?"
The Wheel of Time goes on about this a lot. I like the Aiel view--that we all 'wake' up from the dream eventually so why worry bout' it? Still difficult though.
You are me and I am you; I'll always be with you.
You are me and I am you; I'll always be with you.
Love may equal fear for some, I guess it depends on how you view yourself, and yourself in relation to others. I love my wife dearly, but I don't fear losing her - because it's inevitable: when I die or she dies (unless we bail out together of course!) All things end.
