OUR MOST ESSENTIAL NEED IS THE NEED TO CONNECT
Staying connected to how you feel and to the Source of your Divinity through your faith and gratitude is the life force. Love is a healer.It’s the natural healer. It’s a medicine. True unconditional love has to start with you if you want to extend it to others. True essential needs are centered within your being. It stems from your shine within wanting to be free and create the life you want to live. Being genuinely happy and satisfied! We all need to be loved, to be heard and to be understood. We need to feel secure. We need to be recognized and esteemed. We most certainly need to take responsibility for our lives. Vital needs stemming from an emotional state are closely linked with survival needs. These needs are fulfilled throughout your day. Many times your basic needs are simple. The essential needs of your heart and soul are over and above emotional needs.
If your own needs are not fulfilled, meeting the needs of another person will breed resentment within. Other times you think you know what another other person needs. This involves caretaking. It takes its root from codependency. You are more into the other person than into yourself, or perhaps you do not allow the other person’s soulful guidance to reveal its clarity. Caretaking is natural for those in need. Parenting a child is natural. Parenting an adult that is not in need involves both caretaking and controlling behaviors.
Perhaps you have difficulties with your own feelings in your heart and to feel better for yourself you must do something for another person. Controlling another person to make you feel better is selfish. It is not with pure intentions of your heart. It is subtle. The ego is at times very subtle. Dominating another person is being disrespectful. Every person has their individual soulful essence. This guides people perfectly. Your Essence guides you perfectly. Be faithful to you and connect with your heart. This will enable you to authentically connect with others.
