It is said – and most people would agree – that true love is never blind. But what does that mean, really? I’m sure that the explanation is in, ahem, the eye of the beholder, but to me this statement means that seeing matters through the eyes of true love requires honesty, transparency and authenticity.
If you are not honest with yourself, you cannot be honest with others. If you are not willing to admit to your weaknesses or limitations – to be vulnerable – then a part of you will be shut out from the purifying and intensifying light of love.
If you are not transparent, that is, if you hide your true feelings from yourself or others, then you will eventually blind yourself to the reality of your situation. Living in denial will give you emotional cataracts. Moreover, you will be paralyzed by the conviction that others are not being transparent with you, and your constant second guessing will eat away at the fabric of your love, like moths on a cashmere sweater.
If you are not authentic, then you will fail to allow the full purview of love to flow through you. Posturing always constricts the flow of love because the character of love, the body of love is truth. And truth is always genuine, never an imitation.
If, on the other hand, you live in total honesty, transparency and authenticity, then you will find that the doors of true love continue to open in you and before you. You will relax into a progressively deeper realization of the profundity of true love and nothing, dear readers, is more important than that.
