Love Is In The Air Or Is It Commercialism
Shopping in stores you see valentine cards, candy, and flowers reminding you to show love. Don’t be fooled! This promotional induction is just to sell you false love and create guilt.
I am not suggesting that you should not show outward expression of love by giving a gift, what I am saying is to make sure the buying and giving is coming from your heart.
This masquerade of promoter’s interest to show love on Valentines Day is just commercialism that I call,” Creating Psychology Guilt.” which keeps the money circulating, and a good thing in today’s economical decline.
This advising of “guilt love” is not the highest quality for showing love. The jester to purchase items that symbolize love is a good thing, what is not a good thing is to be influenced by society’s promotions for creating fault love.
For me, love is more then giving a gift — it is giving myself to another in the good times and in the difficult times. Moreover, true love is being present to another by listening with compassion and acceptance. Everyone needs love and forgiveness.
Defining and expressing love is never easy, and moreover, requires much compassion, forgiveness and acceptance. To grow into this consciousness opens the door into Self-knowledge here, begins the journey for discovering the hidden reason for offering a token of love, and this process frees one from promotional conditioning. Going within to touch the deeper meaning for the gift of love allows one to give with the heart.
Removing the masquerade of lies and facing the hidden reason for showing love on Valentines’ Day is vital for not getting caught in the commercialism, and moreover, offers a meaningful expression of love.
Love has many faces some hidden, others known
Many pierce like a knife cutting away all security
Who can tell the pain?
The clown’s smile becomes the illusion
The saint’s way of life clouds the path
The fool travels in vain to obtain riches
Unaware of the deception
The wise person penetrates the masks seeking nothing
