We analyse everything compulsively with judgment and comparison.  But the heart embaces everything without any judgement.   We think we are our thoughts but it is not true, and real freedom comes when we learn to anchor in our heart and just watch the thoughts go by.    We don't need to analyse and compare, if we are in our heart we start to gain real wisdom, and become aware of our habitual patterns so we can start to make new choices.   We have to give up trying to understand everything, and just trust that life is bringing us where we need to be, as life will always bring us what we need to grow.

We have learned to analyze everything. From our thoughts and emotions to our actions and decisions, the intellect scrutinizes with meticulous and often obsessive repetition, circling endlessly around the circumstances in which we find ourselves. But this constant analysis, when it becomes a compulsive habit, only serves as a distraction, drawing our attention away from the joy that is present in each moment.

 

The heart sees beyond the comparisons and judgments of the mind. It can embrace everything in its perfection, exactly as it is. Such a level of acceptance is difficult for the intellect to grasp, because it transcends logical thinking. Perceiving from love-consciousness is the opposite to perception from the intellect. The intellect perceives duality, while love perceives unity. The intellect perceives good and bad, right and wrong, while love accepts and embraces everything. The mind will always try to analyze, understand and evaluate each situation, because it desperately needs to keep itself entertained.

 

Am I doing it right?  Other people are better than me.  Nobody notices my effort. These are only the games of the mind. We must not get stuck in this type of thought, because the moment we do, they become an attachment. If we simply watch them go by, without taking them seriously, they will not cause us any suffering.


We are very attached to our thoughts. We think that we are our thoughts, but we are not. We think that our thoughts are real, but if we look at them, we see how contradictory they are. Our thoughts are always changing. The mind dances incessantly from one side to the other, going one way, then the opposite. There is no stability in our thoughts. Freedom comes when we learn only to watch them go by. When our inner experience begins to grow, we start to see ourselves more clearly and become aware of our limiting beliefs.

 

We start to be aware: Ah! I fall into this trap again and again. But it is not about calculating or understanding. If we must understand something, this will be very clear to us. The key is to feel and be innocent. Without analysing.

This is what we try to do: we try to take unity and understand it within the confines of duality; but that is impossible. The faster we let go of the need to understand and open ourselves to receive our true essence, the quicker we will find the answers, because they will come from our heart, they will come from our essence, they will come from within us. We are always growing; we are always moving forward, although we cannot see it.

Even if we think we are worse than ever in our lives, we are always moving toward greater awareness. Sometimes it will seem that the situations or habits we experience get worse, but the only thing that is happening is that our universe is opening our eyes to a place where we can get rid of our attachments so we can be more complete and find freedom.
