That I May Rise…

Shake me please
that I may rise
from this illusion chosen
but aware now
is but a broken dream
from which I must awake
To the truth of LOVE
now remembered
Eternities of joys and bliss await
if only to the absolute real
Infinity…
My spirits eyes
again may be greeted
My spirit’s heart
again may be filled

The shadows kiss was sweet
but light’s embrace divine

just LOVE…
Kip Baldwin

Home is Where the LOVE is…

As he lay in the stillness and silence of the moment infinite, the realm of spirit, where everything was happening all at once, an old adage leaped into his now unified consciousness, “Home is where the heart is.” and he that was no longer a he, but the WE mused, “It could just as easily be, ‘Home is where the LOVE is.’ Since LOVE is the all the ways that lead home and home is the all ways, that appear to be infinite many, that converge to be one. LOVE is that one way, that is the one home.”

just LOVE…

The Flat Stone and the Ripples…

The Druid Princess red curls falling, glistening in the summer sun, her light white gown billowing in the breeze, emerald green eyes sparkling, starring intensely, bare feet, toes curling clutching the wet grass, as she hurled the flat stone, skipping it across the once smooth surface of the pond, now exploding with ripples and she mused, “The rock is LOVE, the ripples are life and while life is a precious gift, LOVE is even more, for without LOVE there is no life.” She merrily pondered further, “LOVE is the cause and life the effect; LOVE’s energy had lain with Infinity’s information and from their divine union was born life, was birthed creation.”

just LOVE…

“Situations seem to happen to people, but in reality, they unfold from deeper karmic causes. The universe unfolds to itself, bringing to bear any cause that needs to be included. Don’t take this process personally. The working out of cause and effect is eternal. You are part of this rising and falling that never ends, and only by riding the wave can you ensure that the waves don’t drown you. The ego takes everything personally, leaving no room for higher guidance or purpose. If you can, realize that a cosmic plan is unfolding and appreciate the incredibly woven tapestry for what it is, a design of unparalleled marvel.” ~ Deepak Chopra, The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life

The Age of Delusional Certainty…

Mankind is moving from a age of delusional certainty, a belief system that informed them that while they did not know yet the answer to everything that soon they would. Into an age of confusion; the age of we, not me; of question, not answer; of how we are, not why and what we are; understanding, not judgement, an embracing of the unknowable, of the flawed perfection that all is, which in doing so will allow them to begin to understand that not knowing, is to truly know, to become wise.

They are remembering that in these illusions of experienced duality, glorious creations of divine comparison, nothing is ever what it seems, heroes are not always heroic and villains are not always villainous.

Accepting that it is only the oneness with LOVE and Infinity that is truth; wearing the white hat, riding the white horse…

just LOVE…

Faith in LOVE…

Faith in LOVE means knowing, without question, that when you die, the true you will live on, just as you know, have faith, without question, when you fall to slumber, you shall wake…

just LOVE…

The Pursuit of Blissful Happiness…

Though I know all that the absolutes of LOVE and Infinity are, I also know that so long as I am but an imagined part separate from the absolute oneness they are and must be, I can and will never BE all that LOVE and Infinity is, nor can I or will I ever even begin to comprehend fully what in truth that knowing means, but that takes away from and changes not one iota, my knowing of what the absolutes of LOVE and Infinity are.

The only way I know, to truly BE infinitely in LOVE, is to embrace our innate, eternal and absolute oneness with the beginningless, endless moment, all else is the experience of life, of creation, I feel, being played as a frivolous game and for me, I know this for sure; LOVE is not a game and the pursuit of blissful happiness is not trivial.

I do not strive to be known or remembered, for those are the pursuits of ego. I seek only for the time I am here (pretending to be a me) to share what is shared with me, so that those that come after may find in their experience, blissful happiness.

just LOVE…

Ego the Antithesis to LOVE?

Some folks think that it is hatred or fear that is the antithesis to LOVE, but I think perhaps it is ego, that then uses the delusions of conceit and lust, as false substitutes for real LOVE of self and genuine passion and compassion for others.

just LOVE…
