Love is not what you think.
In fact, love is not what anybody thinks. Love is what happens when you don’t think. Love is an experience of happiness in your own heart and soul. It not an idea, story or belief system in your head. It’s not something you think or talk about – it’s something you are about.
In other words, finding love isn’t about learning something new. It’s about unlearning all the old stuff – the programming and conditioning society has fed you – that just doesn’t work. We’ve all been programmed with a lot of ideas about love. And it’s our ideas about love – just like our ideas about happiness and success – that get in our way of experiencing it for ourselves.
Mark Twain once said, “It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.”
So, I’d like you to drop this whole idea of “love” – all the thoughts, beliefs, and expectations you have about love – and simply replace it all with the simple, silent experience of “happiness.”
The truth is, no matter what people think or how many people think that way, love is never unhappy. If love is unhappy, it isn’t love. Love is simply your happiness, shared – that’s all it is. Nothing more, nothing less.
So, please forget all about love for now – just get happy, really happy. Unconditionally happy. If you’re unconditionally happy, love will find you. I promise.
Isn’t that why you want to be in love – meet a partner, get married, and have kids – anyway: to be deeply, truly, unconditionally happy?
