I would rather a single moment, happy, no matter how brief, having borne witness to the transcendent beauty of LOVE and then be no more self, returning to absolute oneness Infinity; than be forever blind, suffering, an immortal ego, vainly spending all eternity in the grotesque ugliness of fear.
LOVE is not the fleeting ecstasy of orgasm, nor is LOVE the empty misery of the moment after climax; LOVE is the feeling of bliss you pray you could stay cocooned in forever that comes before; both feelings of ecstasy and misery are illusions cast by the body while standing in love’s shadow, bliss is our Soul’s truth that lies at love’s core…
“The philosophy of life is this: Life is not a struggle, not a tension… Life is bliss. It is eternal wisdom, eternal existence.” ~ Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
LOVE is the one and only law of Infinity and the law of LOVE is incontrovertible and undeniable; without LOVE there would be no other laws, not the laws physics, not laws of nature and most certainly not the laws of man; for without LOVE there would be nothing at all, no space above or Earth below, no time, no you, no me, not even fear; such is the absolute nature of the law of LOVE…
“All love is expansion, all selfishness is contraction. Love is therefore the only law of life. He who loves lives, he who is selfish is dying. Therefore love for love’s sake, because it is the only law of life, just as you breathe to live.” ~ Swami Vivekananda
To believe that LOVE is how we need to be, is not idealistic, to the contrary it is realistic. Because LOVE is the only way to bring the peace and sustainability we all say we desire, as history has shown that by all counts and measures fear has and will not. So then we must LOVE for the simplest reason of all; it is what works toward our stated goals.
LOVE it just makes good and common sense and common sense is mother of wisdom; LOVE is the sunny day we say we seek, while is fear is the rain we won’t come out of…
“Human misery must somewhere have a stop; there is no wind that always blows a storm; great good fortune comes to failure in the end. All is change; all yields its place and goes; to persevere, trusting in what hopes he has, is courage in a man. The coward despairs.” ~ Euripides
To be happiness eternal one must fly high the white flag above their fortress of fear and surrender to the irresistible force that is LOVE infinite.
“I will surrender. The power is too great to comprehend, for love always triumphs! So it is to you I surrender…and its truth shall be forever.” ~ Rasa
Fear activates the predator in us by convincing us we’re starving, LOVE inspires the altruist us by awakening us our abundance.
“Abundance ~ An endless supply of water, trees heavily laden with fruit, a sun that shines every day, seasons in their never-ending cycle, a constant supply of air, an infinite wellspring of love, so many people to share with, an eternal cascade of imagination and creativity, unlimited lessons and growth, much valuable work to do, limitless potential for expanding and opening our hearts, unending forests to wander, evermore books to read and write, a vast mind of thoughts to explore, overflowing goodness, exponential wonder, overwhelming mercy, ~ a copious abundance of abundance to ponder.” ~ Jinjee and Storm Talifero
Some say that we seek truth from the inside out, others that our body exists in our soul and not our soul in our body, thus making our seeking from the outside in, but I feel what all sages are telling us is that we must seek absolute truth beyond the definitions of this or any illusion we choose to experience. And since that absolute truth is LOVE, it knows not within or without, yesterday or tomorrow, as love’s truth, like LOVE itself exists in no space, no time, for love’s home is Infinity; ever beyond our comprehension.
Therefore wherever Infinity exists LOVE is found and there nowhere, no-when that Infinity does not exist, so it follows there is nowhere no-when that LOVE is not found. Wouldn’t then the truth of our seeking be that we need not seek love’s truth at all, as LOVE is one with all that is, just as we are in truth one with all that is?
LOVE is here always waiting, timelessly patient, for our conscious intention and attention, then like an old friend we hear LOVE say; what took you so long this time? And we are once more comforted, by the remembering of love’s embrace, as to a Mother’s eternal bosom, that was there, holding us close, nurturing us all along…
Infinity/God/LOVE is the ocean
Our Soul is an infinite cup in that ocean of Infinity
We in body are an infinite drop in the cup of infinite Soul…
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ~ Jalal ad-Din Rumi
