I really enjoyed this talk. A refreshing look at love. ‘You are pleasant to someone because you are pleasant.. (not being pleasant to someone because they are nice)’
‘You are trying to be loving, when you are not pleasant’
Very inspiring short talk from Sadhguru. looking at love from another perspective. From my interpretation taking the other person out of the equation and recognizing love is really about ourselves and cultivating these feelings within, then they naturally flow outwards to those that come into our lives. A far more empowering approach and less reliant on the actions of others, which are so much out of our control.
The role of mindfulness in relationships is so important. To bring awareness and compassion to our thoughts and feelings as they arise so we can honor them but without making others responsible.
