Huh, I don't see it like that at all.. I never mentioned loving people the same way.Greatest I am wrote: ↑Mon Jul 15, 2019 7:26 pmLove for all is for the delusional and pitiful as love has conditions and if you love all people the same way, then there is no one special in your life.Dontaskme wrote: ↑Mon Jul 15, 2019 11:39 am The more we recognise ourselves as consciousness reflected upon itself, the more we move toward self-love, love for all, peace, and joy.

If that is where your ideology leads you, you can have it.
LOVE for all has nothing to do with loving them all the same way, where on earth did you get that idea?
The art of loving others starts on the inside with you the one and only, it's about loving yourself from the foundation of your own personal evolutionary growth. Starting with yourself is the key to accepting others for who they are. I see it as unconditionally loving yourself and then allowing others the same freedom to love themselves unconditionally.
I don't agree with the idea of having ''special people'' in my life...I'm a grown up mature person, I am responsible for loving myself specially. On the other hand a child is needy of a special person in their life, they need the special love of their carers. However, there comes a time when one has to let go of the need for other peoples special love and learn to love themselves unconditionally and fearlessly. Learning to be alone with oneself without the need for another to complete them is the ultimate LOVE ..it's natures natural default position. Not many people ever find that pure state of being, this is a state of no resistance to what is, be it negative or positive but just allow what ever arises to be there without fighting it, or judging or rejecting it, or wanting to change it to some other prefered state ...people who have self-inquired into the true nature of their being can find sanctuary and rest in the natural default position that is love and respect for all life however life may present itself, even amid the sometimes chaotic and mentally challenging times we live in right now...LIFE EATS ITSELF TO STAY ALIVE. It really fucks itself over and over just for the sake of staying alive, it cares only for it's own survival. Life is love loving itself only, no matter how that love manifests. Love even manifests as having special preferences for one way over another and even that is still love expressing itself as the misery self for the love of itself.
I'm living proof, I'm living testimony to what I am talking about, I am living the perfectly free and fearless unconditioned life right now. I don't reject anything. I love myself first, and if that means wanting to be alone only with myself that is me being free and real to myself. That doesn't make me closed off to others, it makes me be free to love them just as they are too without wanting them to be any different than how they are, whether I like the way they are or not matters nothing to me, for nothing other people do or say to me will ever change of effect my inner love and peace for myself.
For me, all people are special in their own unique way. Personally, it repulses me to think we can make another person my 'special person' as if they were some sort of possession and that no one else is allowed to enjoy them. (we're all different in how we see other people) I'm not implying all people are the same in the way they approach their personal relationships. For me personally, I would never call someone my special person.
Personally, I have no desire to form special relationships with others, nor do I hold on to unreasonable unattainable expectations as to how people should love me. If someone repeatedly said to me I am their special person I would have to leave that person, because that to me would be smothering my freedom to be. And that would not mean I didn't love the person, it would mean I do love the person, because I would be wanting them to be free of the belief that I am their special person, I would be freeing that person from the crutches of neediness and the fear of facing their own void.It's only when we can face our own void and be alone with ourself without fear that we are ever really truly free and loving.
To me people are free, they are not the special property of another. For me, all people are special in their own way, but no one owns us.
The more we recognise ourselves as consciousness reflected upon itself,is the recognition that there is only one of us here. And so if you have no empathy and love for yourself accepting all aspects of yourself both positive and negative without fear or rejection, then what hope in loving another have you got?
Ultimate freedom and love is becoming aware there is no one to consciously choose anything in life, it's about accepting that all choice is a choiceless choice and that there is no one in charge with ultimate authority or control over anything in their temporal life. Everything is as it is, be it good or bad, ugly or beautiful.
Choosing peace and equilibrium is a free choice and so is choosing wrongly and irresponsibly, if you are not free to choose how you want to feel, or accept unconditionally how you are feeling at any given moment whether you wanted that feeling or not, then you are not free at all. And that is ultimate freedom the freedom that is no thing being everything.
