Good day, fellow Alchemists:
As conscious beings living in the third dimension, we are inherently separate. By inhabiting a physical body and being attached to our ego, we create a boundary that other people cannot cross. This is the most difficult obstacle that the soul must overcome in order to connect with others in a meaningful way. You see Alchemist, once we leave this physical plane, it is very possible that we also leave behind individual consciousness and return to unity consciousness where we belong.
Being an individual is something painful for the soul to endure. We may even have a sense of homesickness throughout our lives because of our desire to reconnect with unity consciousness. This is why the search for love is so prevalent in the human story.
We are searching for a boundless existence, like the one we originate from. By being in a loving and intimate relationship, we are given the opportunity to completely dissolve our boundaries with another person. This feeling can be euphoric and possibly even a little nostalgic. The problem is that we are dependent on our ability to be open with another person in order to awaken this feeling.
Currently, our society does not encourage openness; we live in what is perhaps the loneliest era for humanity. Our inability to form meaningful relationships hurts us and can even manifest in an unhealthy craving for other sources of stimulation. If we are to take our own happiness seriously, we must venture outward to find connections and attain the metaphysical continuity that we crave so badly.
In order to do that, we must first know and love ourselves. We must let go of our insecurities and of our egos to fulfill our innate desire for unity. After all, how can we fully connect with another if we are not fully connected to ourselves?
We must begin to view love as a practice, rather than a pursuit.
By accepting and loving ourselves we can properly give love and create relationships that allow for boundary-breaking love to exist.
With love and sincerity,
