Barriers to Love

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
― Rumi

My biggest barrier to love is my fear.

Fear of being unworthy.

Fear of being foolish.

Fear of being wrong.

Fear of being judged.

Fear of being rejected.

I could go on and on.

    In the Eastern traditions, to which Rumi most certainly belongs, you have to DIS – COVER the real you. All the things that you write about are the things that cover the real you which is love and joy. Meditation takes one on this journey of peeling off the layers that cover the real you.

      Yes, meditation has been the single best gift I have given to myself…with much help from others. And I dis-cover much in the process.
