LOVE in Abundance…

The day mankind locked up the food from one another, imagining scarcity, is the day man was raped by fear and it was on that unholy of unholiest days war was conceived.

The day all mankind eats freely once more from the God given trough of abundance, is the day that man again makes LOVE to LOVE and on that day of new union sanctified the rebirth of peace will be achieved. 

Gratefulness for the reality of plenty is the key to mankind’s success; thanklessness that manifests as greed is the making of its demise…

just LOVE…

“People with a scarcity mentality tend to see everything in terms of win-lose. There is only so much; and if someone else has it, that means there will be less for me. The more principle-centered we become, the more we develop an abundance mentality, the more we are genuinely happy for the successes, well-being, achievements, recognition, and good fortune of other people. We believe their success adds to…rather than detracts from…our lives.” ~ Stephen R. Covey

LOVE Differences…

Our differences were not created by God to divide us along the lines of one being best, while the other defines themselves as being better; they were given to us so that we could freely feel and experience some small part of God’s infinite imagination. Our differences should be loved and cherished; each of us a shimmering piece making up God’s unending, eternal mosaic.

To claim righteousness or superiority by border, race, religion, gender and or sexual preference and to make war to attempt to prove our claim true, is our less than infantile thinking preaching patriotic dogma from highchairs, while throwing our pureed peas at one another.

Love the other as ourselves, without cause or reason; for in truth that is what they are.

just LOVE…

“I think… that love encompasses the experience of the possible transition from the pure randomness of chance to a state that has universal value. Starting out from something that is simply an
encounter, a trifle, you learn that you can experience the world on the basis of difference and not only in terms of identity. And you can even be tested and suffer in the process. In today’s world, it is generally thought that individuals only pursue their own self-interest. Love is an antidote to that. Provided it isn’t conceived only as an exchange of mutual favours, or isn’t calculated way in advance as a profitable investment, love really is a unique trust placed in chance. It takes us into key areas of the experience of what is difference and, essentially, leads to the idea that you can experience the world from the perspective of difference. In this respect it has universal implications: it is an individual experience of potential universality, and is thus central to philosophy, as Plato was the first to intuit.” ~ Alain Badiou, In Praise of LoveImage

Where LOVE Flourishes…

LOVE awakens the sleeping mind and makes beat again the dying heart, just as the rain makes flourish and washes clean desolate, arid lands.

Not Yet the Sun…

Fear is like whiskey, joy in disguise, slowly poisoning our bodies, clouding our brains until we die.

LOVE is like the aromatic cane true absurd happiness revealed, nourishing our spirits, awakening our minds until we come to life.

This much I now know for sure, that I now know not.

And this I know more, that when I do know all there is to know there will be no more me needing to know; no more questions, only answer, only God, only LOVE, only one, only absolute Infinity.

Then thanks I must give to God for my suffering, my pain, my sorrow; they are what I prayed I needed to experience, pointed pebbles guiding me on the infinite path of my remembering my oneness in LOVE.

It is LOVE that gives light to the Sun, but the Sun can burn, as well as give life; know then how close you are ready to come the Sun without burning, remembering always you are not yet even the Sun, as you have not yet remembered truly the LOVE you are…

just LOVE…

Trust is to LOVE, as Water is to Life…

Because I LOVE myself I truly trust, because I trust myself I truly LOVE. You cannot truly LOVE unless you truly trust and you cannot truly trust unless you truly LOVE; trust is to LOVE, as water is to life…

just LOVE…

A Moment, to Say; I LOVE You…

Had all my moments of this life past and the truth of LOVE I had not remembered, my one regret, as I looked back in review through the eyes of all others who had touched me in this experience of being, would be all the moments I said not with sincerest intention, “I LOVE you” – before our moments in this life together were no more; for there is never a time again exactly like this now, that I will have to say I LOVE you in. And while a word may not seem like much, when it is all we have, intending to say it, but saying it with intention not, is the second you dream forever you had back. So now before another moment passes and breath in this life I take my last; I LOVE you all, with all my soul, from all my heart…

“Time is a generous miser that gives us seconds to decide and an eternity to ponder.” ~ K.R.B.

just LOVE…

Lotus Blossom Hearts

Feeling and believing LOVE brought God’s gentle rains, watering the lotus blossom that it is my heart, the birth place of universes and infinite probabilities from which the true I emerged whole, as the garden of endless abundance sprang to life soft and green between my toes, my dreams of joy, peace and happiness for all becoming real; lotus blossom hearts unfurling before my senses surrounding and interwoven with me, as all remember the beautiful unique souls they eternally are; with the pure unknowable magic of just being once again embraced, now beats lotus blossom hearts in rhythm to LOVE’s blind, silent, still, intention… 

just LOVE…
