What is in the way with human beings accepting all types of relationships and lifestyles? Being right, fear, dogma, passed down prejudices? What is missing? Compassion, agreeing to disagree, tolerance, Love? Maybe acceptance is Love? Unconditional Love that is. What do you think? As human beings we are constantly going in and out of integrity, ego, selfishness, oneness, Love, compassion and acceptance to name a few. we live in a world of duality. So there is light and darkness. We need to embrace our fear, Love it, and embrace to darkside or shadow self. For when we Love what we think is unlovable, awareness surfaces to give us more choice. Whatever we fear or abhor in others is what we fear and abhor in ourselves. When we start Loving all aspects of who we think we are then we can Love and accept others. My view is that many people fear other relationship lifestyles because they are not familiar and seriously misunderstood. And most of what we judge or fear are beliefs that have been passed down through many generations. So in other words, most of our fears, prejudices and judgements aren’t even our own! How ridiculous is that? ABSURD! The first step is to realize that we have been programmed to believe thew way we believe. It’s a reaction, like a reflex. It’s automatic. and, there is no choice in that. So choose to Love all aspects of yourself, light and shadow, and marvel at how your attitudes and beliefs transform about others. The next blog will touch some of these relationship lifestyles in a little more depth.
