A whole new dimension of love!A WHOLE NEW DIMENSION OF LOVE!
Everything is flowing. And this flow isnít made up only of external things. It includes relationships, too. Some relationships last for a long time, and some donítóthatís the way of things. Some people stay here for some time; some people leave very quickly. Itís the way of things.
Every year millions and millions of people are born and die. Our lack of acceptance is quite amazing. We deny that anyone we love could ever be lost to us. So often we are unable to say to someone who is dying, ďWeíre so happy to have had you with us. But now, please have a very happy and safe journey onwards.Ē Itís this denial which brings us grief.
Impermanence is not just of philosophical interest. Itís very personal. Until we accept and deeply understand in our very being that things change from moment to moment, and never stop even for one instant, only then can we let go. And when we really let go inside, the relief is enormous. Ironically this gives release to a whole new dimension of love. People think that if someone is unattached, they are cold. But this isnít true. Anyone who has met very great spiritual masters who are really unattached is immediately struck by their warmth to all beings, not just to the ones they happen to like or are related to. Non-attachment releases something very profound inside us, because it releases that level of fear. We all have so much fear: fear of losing, fear of change, an inability to just accept.
Itís like a dance. And we have to give each being space to dance their dance. Everything is dancing; even the molecules inside the cells are dancing. But we make our lives so heavy. We have these incredibly heavy burdens we carry with us like rocks in a big rucksack. We think that carrying this big heavy rucksack is our security; we think it grounds us. We donít realize the freedom, the lightness of just dropping it off, letting it go. That doesnít mean giving up relationships; it doesnít mean giving up oneís profession, or oneís family,or oneís home. It has nothing to do with that; itís not an external change. Itís an internal change. Itís a change from holding on tightly to holding very lightly.
