Tantra Tip of the Day – Remove the Barriers to Love

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ~ Rumi

My friend Zannie sent me this comment and below is my response. Crystal, great quote from a master of love. How does this relate to your personal experiences with seeking love/removing barriers to the same? I’d love to know…! xo, Zannie

Zannie,
My experience is that everyday is an opportunity to see where I close. When I am aware, I allow myself to open in that moment, to love. The past nine years have been a lesson in letting go of what I think love is supposed to look and feel like. I have come closer and closer to recognizing I am love in form and so is everything and everyone around me. This is easiest with my grandchildren, family and friends. It is more challenging with people who are creating pain and suffering for others, especially, people in power who choose war over peace and pollution over sustainability.

What is your experience?

Tantra Tip of the Day- Looking Beyond the Surface

I am reading a wonderful book on the practice of eye gazing as the primary practice that Rumi used with his teacher Shams to become enlightened. It is called The Spiritual Practices of Rumi, Radical Techniques for Beholding the Divine by Will Johnson. It contains Rumi’s poems and explores how the poems contain the secrets to his awakening process. It is beautiful and inspiring.

Eye gazing opens you to looking at life in a new way. The presence you develop in the practice begins to color your life. You begin to see beyond the surface of things.

Try this: As you move through your day take every opportunity to look beyond the surface of life. This requires being present and connecting to the world around you. Take a few moments every hour or so to connect with your breath and call yourself into the present moment. Breathe deeply into your belly and allow your shoulders to relax. Notice how it feels to be present. Look deeply into the eyes of the people you meet even if only for a moment. Become aware of the beauty hidden all around your. Feel gratitude for being alive.
