Consistency of Love

The love that draws someone to you is the love that becomes a part of them. The consistency of love is the only true place of refuge where one can be stable by simply being an instrument of love.

It’s very important to be consistent in love so people know there’s a place they can turn to for stability. I know many people read my articles so it’s expected they will be there. I don’t mind and because of what has been revealed to me I’m honored to be used as an instrument and to be there for others. Everyone needs a place where they know they can go and be safe from the unconscious world. It does matter where you go for stability, if you go to a place that’s used as a distraction, it may feel like stability, but it isn’t. If you get lost in something menial, the day will go by because time waits for no one, but if you’re spending the same day in a conscious state of mindfulness, you will become consistent in love and people can then turn to you for stability.

Don’t be concerned with what others who are unconscious say, just be consistent in what you know as love and let no one take away your stability. Be consistent in your love in a world that is mostly based in the ego and this will allow others to be consistent in their love, which is needed for any transformation to occur. The love that draws someone to you is the love that becomes a part of them. Life is an experience and if you’re not learning from it, you most likely have your own mind constructs of what you think it’s about. When you truly see, your constructs are no more as they fall away. This seeing is of love and when you remain there others will also go there as it’s the one place of refuge where one can truly be stable by simply being consistent in love.

I grew up in Newark, New Jersey, one of six children. I have been married for 25 years. I own a home, and I have two children. I have been at the same job for 28 years. I am the happiest I have ever been and it is all because of the Love that has always been in my life. I attribute all that has happened to me to that Love. None of what has transpired in the last five years of my life has anything to do with any accomplishments on my part. There was always a lot of love in our home as I grew up, but for reasons unknown to me at the time I was always in trouble. I was at the top of my brother-in-law’s “Who My Sister Shouldn’t Marry” list. I drank alcoholically, gambled, abused drugs and painkillers. I bounced from relationship to relationship. Even after I stopped abusing alcohol and drugs in 1987, my so-called outer troubles stopped, but my self-centered behavior never changed. All I did was substitute one compulsion for another. Although my addiction became more respectable—taking the form of material possessions—I was still trapped, migrating restlessly from one obsession to another. I went to Twelve Step meetings, derived some benefit from them, and then fell away. My loved ones got me into de-tox and rehab programs. But once I was released, the cycle of insatiable craving started all over again. This cycle seemed to work for me . . . until it didn’t. And then my life changed — not instantly or magically, but profoundly. I share this change in It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts. I discovered that I wasn’t dependent upon a substance or activity, but ruled by my ego. My need to reach outside myself for fulfillment was created by a false perception of deficiency. If this sense of lack didn’t exist in me, there wouldn’t have been a need to reach and grasp. My credentials for writing this book are simply that I live this change each day. My view of life is so different from the way it used to be. Through the practice outlined in my book, I have learned to quiet my mind enough to allow my heart to open. The quieter my mind becomes, the more Love becomes the default setting of my life. This is truly a modern-day miracle, a miracle that can happen to anyone who has the urge to change. www.mondayinyourmind.com
