If the surface occurrences of life control our emotions, we’ll flip flop back forth between them and struggle to be at peace because like an immature child we’ll want what we want when it’s wanted.
To the depth of our stillness is the depth of our love. Without depth there’s just what’s on the surface and that flip flops so easily because it’s dependent of things. The deeper the stillness is as an established foundation, the more love will be emanated in our life; and obviously the more love we have the more can be given. The deeper the stillness, the less conditions there are put on our love. Go to the depth not known and go to a place of purity, but this will take a tremendous amount of understanding of why we aren’t in this way already. The transformation of this understanding from our head to our heart will determine the depth of our love. It’s essential to get it to the heart, but without stillness one remains guided by what’s in the head.
I’ve seen this played out first hand in my life and those around me and it’s not beneficial to anyone when one is guided by what’s in the head. It’s the heart that can be pure, the head is usually filled with mind nonsense of a concepts and beliefs of what love is . There are many many conditions put on this type of love, this is the cause of the flip flopping. The lack of stillness creates a flip flop foundation so our emotions are very easily swayed by things and the things that sway us are allowed to occur because our emotions are that of an immature child. Why else are we swayed by the things that don’t go our way? Doesn’t a child act in the same manner? Don’t we as adults, act in the same manner of stamping our feet when we don’t get our way?
The purity of a child is different than the immature emotions of a child, so learn to go deeper than what the surface supply’s you with and you will see a level of maturity not known previously. And when this becomes known life becomes much more stable because one won’t be so easily swayed by the nonsense that the world provides as a foundation. With a solid foundation based in stillness that is beyond what goes on on the surface, flip flopping ceases and love becomes the foundation that life is lived by. And a much more solid and mature foundation it is, without the flip flopping of wanting what’s wanted when it’s wanted.
