Everything Grows in Love

The innocence and evolutionary intelligence of your spiritual longing can easily be kidnapped by ambitious, critical thought loops. Before you know it, you associate being really harsh and judgmental towards yourself with being a good and responsible Yogini.⠀
.⠀
We criticize and push ourselves; we cringe in shame of all our flaws and bad habits; we compare ourselves with others and call it “growth.” We fear that if we don’t push and judge, nothing will change.⠀
.⠀
Look a bit closer. Notice what happens to your consciousness when you go into self-judgment: it actually contracts, and there is very little movement there. Very little space for growth.⠀
.⠀
Be kind to yourself, dear one, on this wild ride of awakening. What will make you grow is love. Everything grows in love. Everything grows in love, because love is space.
