At times we may feel regret in loving others....it is caused by our own expectations. When we find others who we feel are unworthy of our love...we must also look at ourselves and consider that we have been unworthy of love in the past and not always as appreciative as we could have been for the wonderful people and conditions that came into our lives. We often blame others for our own karma.

It is often only when these conditions and people are gone that we recognize just how much love God has given us.
Sometimes we feel faced with the unworthiness of loving others who are unable or unwilling to love us only because we ourselves have not always been receptive to the love offered us. But as time goes on we find that we do get love from others...but not always in the way we thought it should be given to us.

Thank you friend. Recently I am feeling blessed more for the moment and the friendships in my current dynamic.

My good friend shared his Guru with me and from him I learned,
With each breath we are born anew.

This same friend told me to let go of the past, let go of guilt and to start my new adventures. It has taken a long time but in meditation today I sent my Beloved Ex white spiraling light and enveloped her with love. In my minds eye we hugged before I bid her farewell. I may not have had the opportunity to do it in person the way I wanted, I may not have the opportunity again but it's not for me to worry about. I have not only lost my ex due to karmic factors but other friends and even almost my own family... What is real is the Love felt for these souls and despite it all- that's all I wish to hold on to, Love. Should any of our paths cross again I hope forgiveness and compassion reigns... That we may all feel peace in thoughts of each other and share once again in friendship- the greatest gift of all. If this moment does not happen, it's not for me to get upset or even ruminate on. I needn't know about the other or worry about transgressions anymore- I've done that enough... Instead, it's time to recognize the Love in all its forms as you have mentioned above Steve...

Peace...

Yes you are so rite...because trapped in time it is difficult to see beyond our own subjective attitudes. However freed from the constraints of time we recognize the wisdom gained and the beauty of the time spent. Thanks Eric...it is a strange feeling I have about you...but I think I can express it now. You are like a slice of time...we have shared so much with others over the years. You represent all those experiences. When I think of you I remember all the wonderful  experiences we have had here with so many people...and I am thankful for those memories  and ...everything they represent. It is all part of our spiritual  unfoldment..and the experience  of love God conveys  shared by friends.

Thank you Brother. I am interested in learning more of your visions from our past life connection. You are a good friend and this forum is filled with Love. I hope those who have shared here visit from time to time, it's not for me to ask anyone to stay but to welcome those who wish to share their hearts while this medium still exist. The portal is a wonderful place.

Kindest Regards.

Nothing specific Eric. I feel we can tell about people and their love for us in their loyalty and support to noble projects and aspirations regardless of how they were created. We have often worked on such projects from life to life and we become familiar with those projects and the people who have been with us in serving. If it was not for our service it would be difficult to receive the grace of God-the greatest server of all-in times of spiritual difficulty and when we need support when we are in material need.

Thank you for bumping the thread by Sri Yukteswar. There are so many inspiring quotes- I had been reflecting on my relationship with Jessica and understood that I had lost my way. By over-indulging the self via greed, perverse attitudes corrupted the Love which was mirrored back in real time and evident by the dying connection.

Then to read this after your resurrecting the thread,

"A girl must have proved very troublesome to the peace of mind in his early life," my guru answered caustically "Otherwise he would have denounced, not woman, but some imperfection of his own self-control."

It is a gain for the one who finds fault in himself and a loss to rest blame on another, where only God and that unique expression of God can intimately know each other. We are all unique expressions of God.

I thought maybe to bump these sayings in the recent Self-Control thread which is also full of inspiration.

Here seems most appropriate, in line with my recent ruminations as I reflect on friends and lovers. I found this quote below equally relevant and hope others benefit too.

"Forget the past," Sri Yukteswar would console him. "The vanished lives of all men are dark with many shames. Human conduct is ever unreliable until man is anchored in the divine. Everything in future will improve if you are making a spiritual effort now."

Here I am not forgetting but am letting go of the darkness and reevaluating the experience to aid my aspirations. I hope to fulfill my role as a man, transform my mind and reflect the divine. May we have the strength to mold our future and the dignity to accept our past.

And of course, when reflecting on others- may we be content by their Happiness.

'Wrath springs only from thwarted desires. I do not expect anything from others so their actions cannot be in opposition to wishes of mine. I would not use you for my own ends I am happy only in your own true happiness.'

Yukteswar is a rishi.
"Yogananda gave Sri Yukteswar the title Gyanavatar, 'an incarnation of wisdom' and he called Lahiri Mahasaya a Yogavatar, 'an incarnation of yoga'. Babaji is known as Mahavatar, or Great Avatar."
