Experience is one of the building blocks toward what we want in our lives, like finding true love. If we can embrace everything that happens and understand how simple the process of true love is, we can then begin to relax more and more and follow our natural path back to love.
Have you seen a child playing with blocks? They are mesmerized by all the different shapes and colors, and sizes of each block.
They take each block in their hand, looking at it closely with wonder. Some blocks will be their favorites, but if even a favorite one rolls away, they will soon let it go and continue playing with the others.
They start experimenting with the blocks, piling block upon block to make different pieces. If one block doesn’t fit, they just each for another.
When their creations fall, they might show a momentary sadness, but then they realize it just means they can build a bigger one. Once they see that all towers eventually fall over, they will knock over their creations themselves to create new ones.
Finally, when it is nap time, they will take one last contented look at all they have done and nod off to dream.
Like children, let’s play with all our blocks, experimenting with even the ones that don’t seem to be the ‘best.’
If we focus only on a few blocks and not try out all of them, we limit the ‘towers’ height and breadth.
Be a wide-eyed child again! Be free! Be joyful! Enjoy playing with all your blocks to build some incredible towers, and find your natural path to what you want and be content.
Use each experience as a building block to move towards building the tower of true love!
