In the depth of love, your inclination is to abandon every need for safety, every mechanism of security that you have. You’re now open to “incidents” — sometimes called accidents — that naturally take place without motive; cause injury (physical, emotional or mental) without intention; develop misunderstandings without purpose. To be safe and secure in the presence of such potential mishaps, a normal response instinctually retreats back into protection, but protection lives inside a shell and also makes it impossible to receive love.
Now you’re in a trap — living with love, but not in love is the expression . . . an illusion of painful confusion.
A more masterful method moves away from protection and instead uses intuition and deflection — a technique of angles, a very powerful martial type art . . . actually a material art, because of its skill for succeeding in the material/physical world.
The capacity to deflect allows for security along with receptivity . . . you’re not in a shell, opportunities abound, where protection would cut you off from the world. Deflection is a dance within every danger of the cosmos. In ancient history, deflection was taught as the dance of Shiva; the song of Krishna; the ecstasy of “I am Jehovah” and the serenity of Buddha . . . a state of total innocence dancing in the mouth of time. It doesn’t cut off the world, but super includes the world within your highest state of receptivity. Deflection is the art of passing through spacetime, where there’s no space for danger and absolutely no dangerous time . . . magical means in a logical meme.
Our prayer is that you dance by yourself and dance with your lovers; abandon all protections and enjoy life as music; engage all the benefits that come with reception; deflect potential accidents; turn them into blameless incidents and enjoy the joy that causes no harm and no foul . . . because you can . . . and you are always in love.
