I am going share the most vital lesson I have learned from my Twin Flame experience. In fact, all spiritual lessons lead ultimately to one incredibly simple truth, and this truth can be described in an infinite number of ways, yet can be summed up in a single word: that word is, of course, LOVE.
All we have to ‘do’ is Love. All we need is Love. It is so simple that our frail human minds melt down at the lack of complexity.
The mind needs to feed on complexity (problems) in order to perpetuate its hold over us as the most “intelligent” component of our experience. We complicate things and limit them completely. Suzanne’s Book, Love is Free, delves into this self imposed exile that we place upon ourselves when we limit Love by making it conditional. We all know in our hearts that true Love is unconditional and radiates its light equally on all creation, just as the rays of the sun do.
But it is nigh on impossible for us to truly Love as Eternity Loves—we are simply so entrenched and invested in duality that we are bound to limit Love to that which we judge deserves it most. Yet we must try to Love unconditionally.
Most of us have heard that only purest Love has no opposite, and therefore, transcends duality. Duality is the essence of the illusion that we all labour under. Duality forces us to constantly decide between two opposites. It is like tossing a coin. We judge each element of experience and choose to put our attention on one side of the coin over the other, knowing that heads is not tails and vice versa. Buddhists focus on that which something sacred is not, in order to keep from limiting the conception by a dualistic definition. They describe something sacred as the absence of something—i.e. Enlightenment is the absence of suffering. They understand that Enlightenment (Love) is sacred and not a defined thing.
All things in duality have an opposite so that our minds can ‘know’ what it is. Eternity cannot be known by the mind for it has no opposite; it does not exist because, to exist, it must have something to ‘stand out’ against. Space does not exist until you have at least two points of reference—the gap between the two points we call space. Ask yourself what was there before the second point of reference was created. Nothing, no thing.
At this point, one’s minds begins to give up, for the mind is born of duality. The mind needs twin points of reference. This is how Twin Flames in essence operate. In order to grasp that which lies beyond duality, we need to become aware of our awareness. It is a blessing indeed that we can be aware that we are aware, and that there is more to us than the mind. If we are to stop perpetually suffering, we must transcend the thinking mind that limits us so horribly.
As Twin Flames, we endure the very worst kind of suffering: the yearning that pulls at our hearts so intensely that we feel we might die with longing. But suffering is only there to jolt us out of the illusion of duality, and what could express duality more completely than the need for union with our opposite form?
So take heart, fellow Twins. This is the most concentrated experience there is, and it is there to wake us up from our dream of duality because we are ready! We know that we are ‘ready’ because we are having the experience.
Our challenge is to transcend the greatest illusion; to know that we are only separated from our Twin by a misconception. Know this, dearest friends—you are not and were never separated as Twin Flames. You agreed as whole beings to create an illusory experience of splitting into two so that you could find your way back to wholeness with a more complete understanding of what it means to be whole.
You journeyed into pain so that you could learn to transcend it and appreciate what it is to Love Unconditionally. You are here to Love your Twin Flame unconditionally, and allow them be exactly as they are. You will then Love as Eternity Loves, and the illusion of separation will cease to cause you pain, for you will KNOW the truth—you will know Love. It is a simple as that.
