Human love concepts flourished as intelligence, creativity and self consciousness developed. The concepts of love; as with all other concepts, started to impact human existence in various manners. There was equally a demanding need to interpret and define the changes occurring during the evolution of mind and consciousness. This should not be confused with our species evolutionary physical and mental adaptation. It was no longer enough simply to feel emotions or love. We were expanding mentally and emotionally. Our awakened self awareness told us that we were experiencing something that we eventually labeled as “love”.
The equally developing human creativity in our species initiated a necessity for more labels and definitions. The human species “need” to identify itself, the universe and life increased outward; at the cost of losing insight over what we can find “in” us. This was the start of our unquenchable need to explain what we are experiencing in our thoughts and through our actions. This “demand to know” expands far beyond defining our immediate surrounding. The beginning of self consciousness initiated a curiosity that could not be silenced. The human species mind needs to know.
The everlasting state of conscious isness. Wikipedia org offers this information about isness. Buddha referred to himself as the Tathātā. This word has been described as both “One who has thus come” and “One who has thus gone”. These two have often been described as “One who has arrived at suchness”
The human mind demands to understand why we are here. How can the human species even attempt to explain “being”?
Instead of talking, writing and dreaming about love; it might be very enlighten simply to experience love. This is done best when we step outside the burdens of the mind. This approach also correlates with life. Life should be experienced; not analyzed, interpreted or defined. Evolution; before the self-consciousness stage, played a big role in human development. One significant realization is that we are existing in love, we are engulfed in life. We have simply forgotten. We overlook the simplicity that is at the foundation of love and life. We have made the endeavors associated with interpreting and defining love and life our priorities.
The actual “being” has become secondary in our life existence experiences. Human beings are usually so busy “doing” that the beauty and importance of simply “being” has been interpreted as trivial. This same pattern of understanding is true about love. We are usually busy pursuing the interpretation and defined expectations of love. We have disassociated with what it is simply to feel love. This resulted from the increasing burden that has been placed on our species after the awakening of self consciousness. This set the foundation for all later behavioral patterns. Many of these patterns of “doing something” constantly contaminate an existence that should be relatively simplistic. It is really obvious. There is the “suchness” of this blink of the eye.
We are personally and collectively awakening to this realization. There is the isness of now. It is free from the concepts of the mind.
Best wishes to everyone
