“Unreal love is another name for attachment, real love is very detachful” OsHo
(Tantra can be described as the Spiritual Warriors recognition of his/her ability to embrace love in a world that is constantly reacting out of fear)
Unreal love is compensatory. Real love is unconditional.
Unreal love seeks to be seen. Real love sees and therefore gives with compassion and pleasure, without expectation.
Without the healing of vision, real love does not manifest in form to its pure extent possible (with little or no fear).
Real love manifests in form when vision has been restored and fear has been replaced with the courage and the willingness of the Spiritual Warrior.
This is a process and an undoing.
Sometimes it is difficult to be real, unconditional love. There is sorrow and pain and discomfort. There is a lot of uncertainty in whether a person or people will love in return. There is still a great deal of fear.
In form, we all yearn to experience real love but many if not most of the world has been operating on a different variety of love called, emotional love. Emotional love is special love, as talked about in Course in Miracles; it is the kind of love we yearn for to get our emotional needs met, to hide our emotional wounds rather than uncover them so they heal. Emotional love is wounded love, in need of healing but in search of compromise and distractions. Real love, on the other hand, is transformational; it allows in love from the divine. The reason why so many people have not awakened to real love is because they have not fully allowed it in and because they have not yet experienced it in its purity through the body. For this reason, it is extra work, at times, to manifest real love within relationship and within ourselves. Any attempt at embodying real, unconditional love may feel difficult at times because it is, in fact, quite foreign to the body.
When one’s restoration of sight is still in process, the heart is left tender oftentimes. It is vulnerable still to fear. The truth carries on in an open-hearted person because the person who stays open-hearted in love is manifesting more divine love to overcome the fear; however, much of this divine love is not yet fully received or acknowledged. Thus, the spiritual warrior struggles at times and even doubts whether she/he is even capable for the task. The fear can be paralyzing and so may leave the warrior in a rather short or long-term spiritual depression.
The fear can draw sickness and many kinds of death, all of which are for the disillusionment of the ego. The more disenchanted the ego, the more real love can manifest safely. The word “safely” is used because it is the death of fear and shame that creates sanity (love). It is the holding on of it that creates its opposite.
Thus, however, long the journey may seem, however difficult the ego may grasp, what is required is the letting go of the ego, the fear, the shame, the loneliness and even the depression.
To move further, from darkness to light, one must stay strong, committed and trust. They must be vigilant in their belief of an unconditional presence and love. Integrating light, to all degrees necessary, the advent of Truth allows peace and wisdom to shine through and heal the Warrior. It is through peace of mind and Love’s eternal presence, felt through the body, that the Spiritual Warrior of Love is dependent and must remain open to. This presence is what gives the Warrior more courage to answer Love’s call. This call is always moving the warrior toward wholeness/destiny.
Be courageous to Love Self and Others.
