Reverence and Wonder…

Mankind’s manifestations of gold, jewel and plastic, monuments to their ever lusting ego, their soul’s vision now perverted, blinded from seeing with their heart’s eye the indescribable majesty of LOVE’S divine creation. Where they once stared, in rapt silent awe, filled with reverence and wonder, they now plunder and pillage in worship of their unholy “I”…

just LOVE…

“We have lived by the assumption that what was good for us would be good for the world. And this has been based on the even flimsier assumption that we could know with any certainty what was good even for us. We have fulfilled the danger of this by making our personal pride and greed the standard of our behavior toward the world – to the incalculable disadvantage of the world and every living thing in it. And now, perhaps very close to too late, our great error has become clear. It is not only our own creativity – our own capacity for life – that is stifled by our arrogant assumption; the creation itself is stifled.

We have been wrong. We must change our lives, so that it will be possible to live by the contrary assumption that what is good for the world will be good for us. And that requires that we make the effort to know the world and to learn what is good for it. We must learn to cooperate in its processes, and to yield to its limits. But even more important, we must learn to acknowledge that the creation is full of mystery; we will never entirely understand it. We must abandon arrogance and stand in awe. We must recover the sense of the majesty of creation, and the ability to be worshipful in its presence. For I do not doubt that it is only on the condition of humility and reverence before the world that our species will be able to remain in it. (pg. 20, “A Native Hill”)”

Of Fear and Materialism…

Over and over again we are given blatant reminders that one cannot soar free on LOVE’s wings, so long as one remains enraptured by the “things” that are the bars of one’s cage of fear…

“The world says: “You have needs — satisfy them. You have as much right as the rich and the mighty. Don’t hesitate to satisfy your needs; indeed, expand your needs and demand more.” This is the worldly doctrine of today. And they believe that this is freedom. The result for the rich is isolation and suicide, for the poor, envy and murder.” ~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazovscreen-shot-2016-02-24-at-8-57-32-pm

Fulfilling LOVE’s Purpose…

LOVE’s only purpose is to BE LOVE
Now awake, remember you are LOVE
Then this moment ask your true self;
Am I fulfilling my soul’s sole purpose?

just :LOVE…

The LOVE of All Her Lifetimes…

Her lover, the LOVE of all her lifetimes was not a man, nor a woman, in truth and in fact it was no other being known or unknown. Nay, that which she had fallen madly, deeply, passionately, eternally in LOVE was LOVE itself…

just :LOVE…

Frighten to Death…

Humans are senseless; we revere death more than life and worship fear more than LOVE, that is why, “Here’s lies humanity, the first species to scare themselves to extinction.” will be our epitaph…

“I dread the events of the future, not in themselves, but in their results. I shudder at the thought of any, even the most trivial, incident, which may operate upon this intolerable agitation of soul. I have, indeed, no abhorrence of danger, except in its absolute effect—in terror. In this unnerved—in this pitiable condition—I feel that I must inevitably abandon life and reason together, in my struggles with the grim phantasm, FEAR.” ~ Edgar A.

LOVE Be Thy Cure…

Must LOVE Harder…

The harder someone is to LOVE, the harder we must LOVE them, for what we find most difficult to LOVE in the other, is what the other often finds most difficult to LOVE in us…
