Acceptance…

From the first moment he remembered LOVE’S truth, he began to go the mirror and repeat over and over this mantra to his reflection, “LOVE is me, LOVE is me, LOVE is me…” Until one day he went to the mirror to perform his ritual, but before he could speak the mirror spoke to him, “You are ME… ” Only this time there was no reflection. And as the last remnants of the he that was not dissipated into the ether, he knew the spell of his addiction to matter had at last been broken…

Flooding in now, vast acceptance of rememberings taking place, acceptance of my true self, which is comprised of infinite versions and stories of my physical selves; leaves of the tree, connecting to twigs, to branches, to trunk, to root, to seed; subdivided levels of consciousness, vibrating at different frequencies, spirits, souls, Soul; expanding, connecting, to larger and larger versions of true self; levels of consciousness, from nature, to planetary, to galactic, to universal, to multidimensional, to some where-less where, some when-less when, in timeless Infinity, source self, creator self, the self that is one, the self that is whole, yet wholly unknowable; acceptance of this is bliss…

I am all that is LOVE and all that is LOVE, is me, is we, eternally…

“Everyone of us is shadowed by an illusory person: a false self..We are not very good at recognizing illusions, least of all the ones we cherish about ourselves. (34) Contemplation is not and cannot be a function of this external self. There is an irreducible opposition between the deep transcendent self that awakens only in contemplation, and the superficial, external self which we commonly identify with the first person singular.(7) Our reality, our true self, is hidden in what appears to us to be nothingness….We can rise above this unreality and recover our hidden reality….(281) God Himself begins to live in me not only as my Creator but as my other and true self.

Seeking Need To Control…

For eternal peace to be, LOVE asks only one thing; to embrace without question the perfection of her masterpiece that is, without seeking in vain the fearful need to control…

Being Alive, Being LOVE…

When you have answered all the questions of LOVE you can and you are left remembering that there are only infinite more questions, you will have figured out all there is figure.

There and then you will give into your soul’s most burning desire, to surrender all that of matter you once believed was you, that you may journey without destination, allowing yourself to at last again just experience being alive, to just BE, to just BE LOVE…

“Wandering is the activity of the child, the passion of the genius; it is the discovery of the self, the discovery of the outside world, and the learning of how the self is both “at one with” and “separate from” the outside world. These discoveries are as fundamental to the soul as “learning to survive” is fundamental to the body. These discoveries are essential to realizing what it means to be human. To wander is to be alive.” ~ Roman Payneexperience-of-being-alive

Her Curse of Empathy…

She had come to the experience to share her gift of remembering the truth of LOVE’S infinite compassion, the truth of their infinite beingness, but with her gift of remembering came what she now felt was the curse of LOVE’S infinite empathy. Because in these apocalyptic times that brought with it for her beloved fellow humans fear, confusion and suffering almost beyond measure, which even for her awakened soul bound to finite flesh, was growing more than her eternal heart could bear; she was beginning to drown, pulled down by the bottomless abyss of their quicksand tears…

“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.” ~ Andrew Boyd

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”

LOVE Knows No Borders…

Our global border “problems” are the borders themselves. We are now at a point in our understanding that it should be clear to most thinking, feeling beings, we are innately apart of a functioning ecosystem. A system whose air that moves and waters that flow does not now, nor has it ever recognized the dots and dashes on maps we use to define an imagined your place and my place, but rather is only aware of an OUR space.

This does not mean – as some would have us fear – a loss of a personal preferences of culture, language or faith. In fact quite to the contrary it is those personal preferences that make this story so glorious an experience; imagine if we choose to live it without the burden of judgements of one’s personal preference being better than the others, but I digress. What it does mean is that; we move from the delusion that any one has more right to the resources all life needs to thrive than another.

Our understanding of this is imperative to the survival of the human species, but not of life itself, which will continue merrily on without an us; although probably wondering on occasion, “What all the fuss was about?”. Yes my friends, our border problems, are our borders.

Remember this absolute truth with all our collective hearts and souls and we will understand; LOVE knows no borders…

The Hierarchy of LOVE…

As brain is to body, mind is to spirit, consciousness is to soul, LOVE is to all; such is the hierarchy of nothing and Infinity…

“The infant is brought to consciousness of himself only by love, by the smile of his mother. In that encounter the horizon of all unlimited being opens itself for him, revealing four things to him: (1) that he is one in love with his mother, even in being other than his mother, and therefore all being is one; (2) that love is good, therefore all being is good; (3) that that love is true, therefore all being is true; and (4) that that love evokes joy, therefore all being is beautiful.” ~ Hans Urs von Balthasardust.png
