A really cool, simple conversation with Aaron Turner breaking down what look like the complexities of loving relationships, where love exists in all of us, and how to experience more of it. This was a great exploration of what is innately true for everyone, and also how we block ourselves from getting it.
Some things I noticed:
- Love outside ourselves can never be found
- How we stumble upon love
- Love is a feeling of your own purity of mind
- When we are at ease, there is a richer feeling
- Love is so simple
- Its only our ideas of what love is that separate us
- Only my own thoughts and feelings separate me from love
- When people don’t feel love they don’t know it’s there
- Underneath all our personal thinking is that experience
- All conflict is created in the mind via thought
- There’s never anything to fix
- You can have a healthy relationship to unhealthy thought
- When we have a thought, it looks like a real thing
- It is important to know its just a thought
- When you don’t feel good pause
- Love is an experience of a less upset distorted mind
- Compatibility – Anyone can be with anyone
- Dating with less on your mind
- Once your mind is more free you can enjoy yourself
- Happiness come from within not another person
- Its actually all so simple
- When we get out of our own way
- Its about our relationship to our true self
