Diviner feelings, kindred with the skies.”

Love Yourself

How Are You BEING as LOVE…

BEING LOVE is not a choice, it is HOW one is BEING LOVE that is…

So more accurately the query the great Bard penned should be not, “To be or not to be?” but “How to BE or not to be?”

For that is the true question one must ask themselves in every moment of their BEING

When is the last time you stopped, probed and pondered yourself; “How in LOVE are we BEING and is how we are BEING creating mostly suffering or mostly JOY?”

If the former; perhaps we should seriously consider this moment choosing differently?

Loss of Connection to Any Thing…

The more remember that I am connected, as LOVE to everything in all Infinity, the less I feel connected out of fear to any single thing in all the illusions of finity; including the thing known as “I”…

Only LOVE Matters…

It is obviously not the things we think we hate of the experience of matter that we fear losing, but the things of matter we think we LOVE

Isn’t it then ironic that the more we fear losing the things of matter we think we LOVE, the more we hate and less we LOVE

All the while forgetting the truth that it is LOVE that matters, not the illusions matter…

“To hear never-heard sounds,
To see never-seen colors and shapes,
To try to understand the imperceptible
Power pervading the world;
To fly and find pure ethereal substances
That are not of matter
But of that invisible soul pervading reality.
To hear another soul and to whisper to another soul;
To be a lantern in the darkness
Or an umbrella in a stormy day;
To feel much more than know.
To be the eyes of an eagle, slope of a mountain;
To be a wave understanding the influence of the moon;
To be a tree and read the memory of the leaves;
To be an insignificant pedestrian on the streets
Of crazy cities watching, watching, and watching.
To be a smile on the face of a woman
And shine in her memory
As a moment saved without planning.”

Animals Guide…

Most humans are still but disciples of LOVE, whilst most animals are true masters

Humans think animals are here for service to man, but in truth they are here to guide…

The earth has received the embraces of the sun

Every seed is awakened and so has all animal life.
It is through this mysterious power that we too have our being
And we therefore yield to our neighbors,
Even our animal neighbors,
The same right as ourselves, to inhabit this land.” ~ Sitting Bull

Nearly all of us have a deep rooted wish for peace–peace on earth; but we shall never attain the true peace–the peace of love, and not the uneasy equilibrium of fear–until we recognize the place of animals in the scheme of things and treat them accordingly.” ~ Lord Dowding1f5d5919bc267b78be8d3de209f812e7

We Are the LOVE…

We need not wait for LOVE to come and change the world
We are already the LOVE that will change the world
We only need remember, to once more become…

Man’s Night Terrors…

LOVE dreamed a natural world filled with living things, including a thing called man.

Man nightmared of death that made him fear the natural world and its living things.

This fear led to his delusional need to control the natural world filled living things.

To that end man manifested machines, toxic toys, tools of his deadly shadow fantasy that destroyed and consumed the natural world and its living things.

Thus he became the monster of his own night terrors, the ravenous beast devouring, delivering extinction to this LOVE’S dream of a natural world filled with living things, including he that is we…

Crisis Point

What some describe as the crisis point, that will come before our emergence from the fear paradigm to the LOVE paradigm; is really only us giving up the last trappings of this experience of matter, our inconvenient, conveniences. Those things that have come to define our uncomfortable, comfort zone, before emerging to the experience of spirit, of soul, of wisdom, of LOVE. Look at it this way; before ascending from hell to Heaven there would be those that would fear giving up the warmth of hell’s flames or the cool of its ice, depending on whose fairy tale you read.

LOVE Abhors Control…

LOVE abhors control, as nature abhors vacuum…

LOVE created an Infinity of everything from absolute nothingness and yet has no control

Our ego sourced from fear, desires the illusion of control, this delusional want has been the bane of this human experience

Even now we seek in vain to control what it is we are becoming; literally trying to control our letting go of our delusion of control

How does a caterpillar become a butterfly; it “lets go” being a caterpillar

Let go control in fear, so that we may become again in LOVE…
