Subtle, gentle, quiet is the way to the path of LOVE; peace of the soul, bliss of the spirit and the process of life cannot be forced…
“Only the weak are cruel. Gentleness can only be expected from the strong.” ~ Leo Buscaglia
I think that it is very hard for us to fully comprehend that our eternal beingness, our immortality, is not the taking of one physical form forever, but as spirit taking on infinite forms and non-forms infinitely, always in LOVE, what you are as soul is as the LOVE that is you, limitless; that is why “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep” it is not; if I die before I awake, I pray the Lord my body to take, but “I pray the Lord my Soul to take”.
“For Love is Immortality.” ~ Emily Dickinson
Thankfulness, is the highest virtue of LOVE that leads to all love’s other virtues; Humility, Generosity, Forgiveness, Empathy, Faith, Peace. So on this day we have named for thanks giving let us remember truly what we are celebrating; please take a moment, bow your head to your heart and from the depth of your soul and with all the LOVE your spirit can muster, give thanks for this truly miraculous experience of being alive and sharing in life’s endless odyssey…
“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” ~ G.K. Chesterton
Looking out into the infinite heavens, watching the stars slowly painting trails across the black canvas of space, the soundless voice spoke again to her, “To experience the rapture of LOVE absolute one must be pure of heart, to be pure of heart one must be fulfilling their purpose in nourishing life’s process.”
After the briefest pause that seemed to hold eternity within it, the voice that was silent continued, “That is the only choice you have, this is freewill to be, you are given, feed life with LOVE or consume life in fear.”
She knew in that moment of truth revealed that all she had ever really desired in the deepest depth of her soul of souls was to be pure of heart.
“True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart.” ~ Honore de Balzac
LOVE every moment, for LOVE is every moment;
LOVE beyond doubt, LOVE devout…
“Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.” ~ John Milton
Grabbing a bowl of popcorn in one hand and a box of tissues in the other his spirit self, the true self that was not he, curled up snuggling warm on the couch, reaching for the remote control he turned on the evening news (his favorite show). Oh how he loved these humans and their wonderfully mad self-destructive antics; he chuckled to himself.
He realized he had transformed, ascended; he was now spirit lovingly observing the experience of man, rather than body fearfully participating.
Spirit is I, Soul is I, God is I, Infinity is I, LOVE is I, matter is not; he now knew…
“It is only with the heart that one can see clearly.
What is essential is invisible to the eye.” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
“The observer, when he seems to himself to be observing a stone, is really, if physics is to be believed, observing the effects of the stone upon himself.” ~ Bertrand Russell
As he grew from boy to man he was aware of a corruption overtaking his guileless spirit, he felt as if the impossible was happening, he felt as if he were losing LOVE and he knew finding it again was the only way his stolen innocence would be recovered.
“I don’t have a philosophy: I have senses…
If I talk about Nature, it’s not because I know what it is,
But because I love it, and that’s why I love it,
Because when you love you never know what you love,
Or why you love, or what love is.
Loving is eternal innocence,
And the only innocence is not thinking.”
~ Alberto Caeiro
How stubbornly arrogant his ego to foolishly believe that it’s shadow, like a black hole devouring stars, could consume the light of LOVE that is infinite immortal Soul; just the thought made his spirit smile more widely than he could ever remember and he knew in that moment his ego-self must die if ever he were to find endless happiness and be truly eternally free…
“People confuse ego, lust, insecurity with true love.” ~ Simon Cowell
LOVE is the will of God, the will of Infinity to be, to experience not just conceptualize abstractly creation; we are, all life is the indomitable will that is LOVE, to experience being…
“Still there are moments when one feels free from one’s own identification with human limitations and inadequacies. At such moments, one imagines that one stands on some spot of a small planet, gazing in amazement at the cold yet profoundly moving beauty of the eternal, the unfathomable: life and death flow into one, and there is neither evolution nor destiny; only being.” ~ Albert Einstein
