Many people have a misunderstanding about the nature of love.
Love is not a hormone response
to the sexuality of another.
Nor is it the momentary expansion of one’s heart.
Love is beyond the physical and is eternal in its nature.
All momentary experiences are only glimpse of love,
which leave us longing to live in its everlasting presence.
All pain is the separation that
because of the closing of our hearts to love.
Our western society has lost its connection to love
and forgotten how to live in the love.
Materialism and desire, competition and success
have replaced the deeper longings of our hearts.
Even spirituality has become a goal and an object of desire
as we long for more and more, higher and higher, greater and greater.
What has happened to love, and
how can it return?
How can we move beyond desire and groping for safety
into the radiance of love that is our divine birthright?
And how can we end the pain and suffering that exists within us, causing disease of the body and mind individually
and the slow death of our planet environmentally,
as we collectively play out our inner disease
and our separation from love?
The answer must be found in love
For it is only love that embraces all things,
only love that heals at the deepest level of our beings,
and only love that will stop the pillaging of our planet
and let it return to its natural state of healing.
Yet what is love and how do we
Many people confuse love with the desire of the body
or the personality of another.
For others, love is obligation and commitment,
an adherence to a lot of rules about life
that are handed down from generation to generation
without an intelligent observation of the state of life
that results from these rules and regulations.
Each person must move beyond
their mind’s ideas of love
into the deeper expression of what love totally is.
Heart disease has become
one of the major causes of death on the planet.
Yet heart disease is nothing more than
our eternal longing for God and love
becoming lost in one’s ideas and desires.
There is no higher or lower in love; no greater or lesser.
There is simply the radiance and respect
for the existence of every atom in the universe.
The rose does not yell at the
oak tree saying, “I’m prettier than you,” nor does the oak respond, “I’m
greater than you.”
No, each must have its own individuality.
Each must be respected for what it is.
One must open to love to know
One must dissolve in love to discover its secrets.
One must taste love to heal and know the unity of life.
Healing of the body can occur
only when the emotions and mind are healed simultaneously.
Within all the healings I have seen or done,
at the core was the absence of love.
In its place were pictures which the mind had made,
cutting off the connection which love creates
to one’s soul and the divine.
Healing occurs only when one
is first willing to become aware
of these pictures and the pain they carry,
and then release them through the deep heart of love.
Love becomes the essence of what we are,
the deepest expression of our heart,
and the key to healing ourselves and our planet.
So how do we find this love and
taste its delights
while healing our bodies and our souls?
How do we move this love into relationship
and merge with another
so that we can know these deeper qualities of love?
There is a simple way.
It is not easy at first,
yet it ultimately offers a person everything they need.
A person must slowly remember the name of God on their breath.
With each inhalation God is breathed in
and with each exhalation God is breathed out.
Slowly the heart and the soul
become luminous with the breath of God.
At first the personality or self
begins to dissolve.
This is both exhilarating and frightening.
When one disappears into another through sexuality,
this is like a prelude to one disappearing into God.
One must give up one’s self to love,
and then slowly one must give one’s heart to love.
All the veils of desire and materiality
must be released
until the heart becomes transformed
into a radiance of white light and purity.
Only then does love truly begin to exist in one’s heart.
Even this state is known to only a rare few.
Yet as one deepens one’s remembrance
committing oneself fully to love
and becoming willing to dissolve oneself completely,
the lumination of the soul becomes known.
One begins to live in a world of energy, light, and divinity.
Eventually even the soul disappears
into the love of God.
This final extinction of the soul itself into God
becomes the foundation of the true nature of love.
Now one begins to recognize that
love is the ocean in which all things exist, and
love is the essence of the creation of all things.
Now one truly knows oneself as
One with all things.
Here peace and love and beauty become the hallmarks of one’s life, and the soul’s freedom becomes the ecstasy
with which we fly on the wings of love.
This is the true nature of love.
It is beyond the heart and the soul,
and lives within the reality of God.
is from where the peace that surpasses all understanding emanates,
and is the way that all the Prophets have spoken about
as they have guided humanity back to God
through the heart and the true love.
Learn to love in the deep and
and everything else will find its correct place
and its correct understanding.
From here, all things can heal,
and love can guide the hearts of humanity
back to the peace, the unity, and the beauty.
