One of the marks of spiritual development is when you reach the point where you are no longer your own worst enemy. That guideline also applies to love. When it comes to love, often times there is a great deal of self-sabotage going on.
One source of this sabotage is not realizing how much you are affected by your need for Universal Love.
Let’s start off with a basic premise first…
Yes, the Universe Loves You
The Tao can be broken down into basic building blocks from which reality is created. One of these building blocks is love. For this reason, all things are loved regardless of behavior, and regardless of whether that thing is destructive or creative.
You, as part of the universe, are never without love. You are partly built from Love.
I admit, when you’re without the affection of a human loved one, knowing about universal love can be pretty shallow comfort. I’m not here to convince you that it’s any other way.
Who cares if I am loved by all things? Well, lets take a look at that. What happens when you are not in a love relationship or one has ended?
- You feel lonely, separated from others.
- You feel as if no one cares about you.
- You feel like you’ve been abandoned.
- You feel like someone did something wrong.
- You feel like you’re somehow less valuable.
- You feel powerless.
Those are powerful impacts from the loss of just one human to human relationship, aren’t they?
What if you could feel the connection of love that flows through the Tao itself? Would you be caught in this type of desperation if you felt that :
- You are never alone or separated from others.
- You are always loved by all things, even if that thing is trying to destroy you.
- You can’t be abandoned.
- Your rightness or wrongness can’t separate you from love, although it can remove you from the emotional experience of love.
What Does Any of This Have to Do With Me Sabotaging My Chance at Love?
Please take a look at the two lists above. Who do you want to be in a relationship with The person described in the first list or the person described in the second list?
If you lack universal love, the desperation that you radiate will sabotage your ability to find mutually fulfilling mates.
