LOVE’s rapture is upon us, your name is being called; remember what you are, what ever you will BE, listen with your heart, feel with your soul, rise like the sun cresting the horizon peace on earth is dawning, see in love’s light heaven was here, before you all along. Come join the dance of the forever unknowable, BE one with all creation or be one of those who chose to be the left behind, stranded, alone on your imagined island of fear; loved ones dear, still here, always near, laughing, singing, thriving, but to those who do not listen, who do not heed their truth calling, they will have appeared to have disappeared. LOVE’s rapture is upon us, your name is being called, come join the dance, remember what ever and ever and ever you are or choose to be one of the left behind…
“I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” ~ Joseph Campbell
Embrace all your journeys challenges enthusiastically with LOVE and your challenges transform from unwanted dams stagnating life’s waters, to rivers flowing freely to your endless rewards… yearn passionately, but linger not long on the banks of want, clinging to the rocks of despair and seemingly unfilled desire; life’s rivers to and from the ocean of infinity are powerful and swift, if you are not one in LOVE, going with the current of each you drown before the paradise waiting always for you, is found.
“None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
We have bled for fear….
Will we bleed for LOVE?
I have bled for fear
I will bleed for LOVE!
Yes for LOVE freely shall I bleed
Until my last cell red is drained
and my heart is still; this my soul’s will
Victory in death’s defeat
This is what it means to rage
for LOVE of life
Courage beyond bitterness
Ascension; rather than fester
In forgiveness, empathy and gratitude
We all rise
Yes, I shed my blood for LOVE
And not one drop did I waste…
For Maya Angelou born Marguerite Ann Johnson; April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014:
A soul whose light for LOVE’s fight shone so bright that even her tears were smiling screams of joyous rebellion; to walk in her shadow an endless summer’s day.
“We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.
We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.”
~ Maya Angelou
Unconditional LOVE is a redundancy, as LOVE needs no preconditions of any kind, for LOVE by its very nature is pure, real, true, absolute, unconditional, infinite… Anything other is not LOVE!
“Love withers under constraints: its very essence is liberty: it is compatible neither with obedience, jealousy, nor fear: it is there most pure, perfect, and unlimited where its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve.” ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley
The most senselessly tragic aspect of the condition that human beings as a collective have chosen to place themselves in, is the conscious waste of a joyful, meaningful, blissful, happy experience of this our self manifested illusion. Because you see we as a collective are mirror images of our individual selves, in the sense that we spend most of our very short lives; first ignoring the brevity of the experience, then as we become aware of our fleeting time in the shell, our body we move to believing we can control or stop the inevitable decline and decay of our flesh and then finally most fall to desperation; their final hours spent clawing and grasping at any fantasy that would allow them to be in the same form of matter forever, the same mirror image reflected. Only in the last moments of breath do we wish to have been more, done more with these moments of mortal life in body brief. This is no difference in how we as collective approach facing our ultimate demise, our complete extinction, but just like individual death of body, neither can our collective extinction be avoided; not by being afraid enough; forcing worship of an angry God to save us, not by war; death can’t save us from death, nor can our technology; no matter how advanced out last the light of the most distant stars. Although, like the light from the stars, we too are energy ethereal and infinite, but like the light from stars we see, most are gone and their shine only their ghost. The consciousness that collected to manifest them gone on to gather information into new imagined form. But what makes our individual and collective experience in this “reality” so heartbreakingly tragic; is that we as collective, just as in most our individual experiences refuse to choose to change, to be happy and BE more in this ephemeral experience of mortality. And if how most of us live out our individual experiences is any indication or example, then we will wait until the final days of our fate before wishing we had made that choice to BE more. The only question is will we recognize our final days and I can’t help but wonder for us all aloud; are these days those of our last? Regardless, I made the choice to BE more, to be LOVE and I pray with truth of all that I am, all that we are that we as a collective choose NOW the same. For the truth is, if each us choose for ourselves then our collective change from fear and misery, to LOVE and happiness will instantly occur.
Live NOW rejoicing in LOVE, stop waiting in fear for tomorrow, too soon, too late, only to regret that you and we did not… when it was always our choice to make.
“Man is an over-complicated organism. If he is doomed to extinction he will die out for want of simplicity.” ~ Ezra Pound
Fear is ego, LOVE is soul
Soul is friend, ego is foe
LOVE is real, fear is show
Ego is broken, soul is whole
LOVE is the truth of soul we know we believe
Fear is the lie of ego we believe we know…
Once one remembers that LOVE is the truth of what they are, every moment of eternity will be spent BEING more, better that truth, for they we will have remembered that is their purpose, their absolute and only reason for being…
“If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.” ~ Deepak Chopra
From LOVE, seeds of life fall, like stardust raindrops, upon creation’s fertile soil; all is alive in LOVE, LOVE is life, that is all…
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life. It goes on.” ~ Robert Frost
The remembering of the truth of unconditional LOVE gives one the space for ones’ healing; unconditional forgiveness…
Unconditional forgiveness restores in one, ones’ innate attribute of unconditional happiness…
Unconditional happiness makes one the master of all ones’ moments rather than slave…
“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” ~ Lewis B. Smedes
From an imagined hell fear rises, from truth of heaven forgotten LOVE falls, storm clouds gather and from the tempest born, no longer one, neither beast nor angel, came the perpetually befuddled and befuddling children of chosen bewilderment calling themselves, who-man; what a mesmerizing and spectacular circus have they crafted, tight wire walking, trapeze artist throwing, lions taming and out the big top, the side show, where each moment with baited breath waiting; is this the now when they fat lady sings the show is over? Only to go ever on and on and on… A standing ovation; who-man! who-man! who-man! Chants from around the infinite are heard; oh, what insane encore shall there be?
For we all want to runaway and play circus for a day, but it is only madmen, egoists and clowns who stay.
“These images in vivid and violent tones have resulted from crystallization of memories of the circus, popular tales or travel.” ~ Henri Matisse
Only LOVE reveals and allows us to sense and bear witness with immortal heart, the silent symphony and simple order, in what most now perceive and have manifested with mortal brain, as screaming cacophony and complex chaos…
“Chaos is merely order waiting to be deciphered” ~ José Saramago
