Embodiments of Love

When we are at peace–in equilibrium,
We maintain a balance,
And the sending and receiving is
happening through us.

We realize that we are not the senders
nor the receivers.
This is a state of bliss.

With detachment from the physical
world,
We watch it flow through us.
We know we are not the action nor the
doer.

We are the center of everything–
That peaceful center from which everything
is observed,
And allowed to be.

Speak from your center.
Act from your center.
Know your center to be the heart of God.
From this space we are fearless.
We know our truth and act upon it.

Let your faith in God be your center.
Let your faith in the light of truth,
Be the rock solid foundation in all you
say and do.

For faith in God, is faith in the truth,
And faith in the truth, is faith in the light,
And faith in the light, is faith in oneself.

Put your faith in yourself,
And never doubt the validity of your
own essence, as the essence of God.

Stand up for your rights.
Stand up for the truth.
Align yourself with the Higher Will of
God,
And you will indeed be aligned with the
truth.

When we are aligned with God we are
fearless.
Our thoughts are God’s thoughts.
Our actions are those of God.

See yourself as the great manifestation
of the Divinity that you are.
See yourself as fearless–as unconquerable.
See yourself as light.

The vision we hold in our minds,
Creates the reality we experience with
our bodies.

To create a reality of light, love and
truth,
You must see yourself as light, love and
truth.

What pictures about yourself do you
hold in your mind’s eye?
Do they belong to you or to someone
else?

In order to express our divine nature,
It is important to see ourselves as the
divine being that we are.
This may require clearing away images
of us that are not our own.

Why would you see yourself as anything
Less than beautiful, capable, loving and
courageous?

What would be the purpose of holding
Any self-defeating image of who you
are?

You were made in the image and likeness
of God.
This is your true image–the picture you
Must hold in your mind to realize your
Divine Self.

Close your eyes for a moment.
Imagine yourself as Divinity.
Notice the love and respect others have
for you,
And the love and respect you have for
yourself.

Notice the love and respect you have
for everything,
Seeing your own divine nature reflected
in the world around you.

When we treat others with the same love
and respect we wish for ourselves,
When we treat all of life as if it were
special, holy and sacred–
Deserving of our most precious love…

Then and only then do our lives reflect
The beauty of the light of God within us,
For God is unconditional love,
And unconditional love sees God in all.

Selfless Love

Not being selfish is good.
But let us go even higher,
And reach for the vibration of pure
selfless love.

Selflessness is being transparent–
empty of all desires.
Empty even of the desire for love.

And in this so called ‘emptiness’,
Lives the fullness of spirit–watching,
Waiting for the opportunity to
express itself as love.

To fully allow this expression of love,
We must first lose any sense of our self,
For that sense of ‘self’ is what stops us
from expressing our true nature.

And as we lose our sense of self,
Sinking deeper and deeper into the
love that we are,
Our actions begin to arise from the
heart.

With no thoughts, fears or prejudice
to stop us,
Our actions become spontaneous.
We live in the moment.

We let the flow of what is happening
around us,
And the arising needs of each moment
dictate our behavior.

We see a need arise and find ourselves
filling it,
With no thought of sacrifice,
And no consideration for ourselves or
our own personal needs.

The little self disappears, being sacrificed
to the needs of the moment.
We release our attachment to who we
think we are,
And become one with everything else.

Acting selflessly is an expression of our
union with God.
Though eternally inseparable from God,
We lose that awareness when we make
a conscious decision to act.

Just the thought ‘I will act’,
Contains within it the element of separation
from God–the sense of ‘I’.
This keeps us from experiencing the
movement of God acting through us.

In a selfless act there is no separation
from the doer.
The doer is God, and we are one with
God.
All acts are selfless, until the thought ‘I’
arises.

Some of the most selfless acts were
those of the early Christians,
Who were martyred because of their
faith in God.

They allowed the small self to dissolve
into the ocean of God.
For the sake of Christianity,
They became selfless.

Today, we can become selfless,
Not by leaving our physical body,
But by letting the ego–
Our source of separation from God–die.

When the fullness of love is embedded
in the heart,
We are easily moved by the spirit of
compassion.

We give for the sake of love,
For the sake of loving–not for being
loved,
This is true compassion.

Only when our heart is full,
Can we open the gates and let our love
flow freely.

Until then we are looking–
Looking to fill our heart with the love
we so desire.

We see love as that which must be
gathered,
Rather than that which must be given.

But when our heart is full,
So happy are we to give.
So happy are we to share the bounty
with which we are so blessed.

Life becomes an outpouring of love,
A sharing of gifts–
A fountain of God’s grace.

Jesus the Christ on ‘Love’

IMG_1403

FOR YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER IS LOVE.
FOR YOUR EARTHLY MOTHER IS LOVE.
FOR THE SON OF MAN IS LOVE.

“It is by love, that the Heavenly Father and the Earthly Mother and the Son of Man become one. For the spirit of the Son of Man was created from the spirit of the Heavenly Father, and his body from the body of the Earthly Mother. Become, therefore, perfect as the spirit of your Heavenly Father and the body of your Earthly Mother are perfect. And so love your Heavenly Father, as he loves your spirit. And so love your Earthly Mother, as she loves your body. And so love your true brothers, as your Heavenly Father and your Earthly Mother love them. And then your Heavenly Father shall give you his holy spirit, and your Earthly Mother shall give you her holy body. And then shall the Sons of Men like true brothers give love one to another, the love which they received from their Heavenly Father and from their Earthly Mother; and they shall all become comforters one of another. And then shall disappear from the earth all evil and all sorrow, and there shall be love and joy upon earth. And then shall the earth be like the heavens, and the kingdom of God shall come.

And then shall come the Son of Man in all his glory, to inherit the kingdom of God. And then shall the Sons of Men divide their divine inheritance, the kingdom of God. For the Sons of Men live in the Heavenly Father and in the Earthly Mother, and the Heavenly Father and the Earthly Mother live in them. And then with the kingdom of God shall come the end of the times. For the Heavenly Father’s love gives to all life everlasting in the kingdom of God. For love is eternal. Love is stronger than death.

“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. Though I tell what is to come, and know all secrets, and all wisdom; and though I have faith strong as the storm which lifts mountains from their seat, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and give all my fire that I have received from my Father, but have not love, I am in no wise profited. Love is patient, love is kind. Love is not envious, works not evil, knows not pride; is not rude, neither selfish; is slow to anger, imagines no mischief; rejoices not in injustice, but delights in justice. Love defends all, love believes all, love hopes all, love bears all; never exhausts itself; but as for tongues they shall cease, and, as for knowledge, it shall vanish away.

A Christmas Wish

IMG_1403

Unlike the many Christmas’ past,
This Christmas day is new.
It is about the birth if Christ –
The birth of Christ in you.

For deep inside your sacred heart,
And deep inside your soul,
There lives a very special Self,
The part of you that’s whole.

It’s like the baby Jesus,
Innocent and so divine,
Its ways are of another world,
Its light was made to shine –

Upon the world of loneliness,
Upon the world of fear,
Bringing love and light and hope
And all we hold so dear –

To every man and every child
And every foe and friend,
“May Christ’s Divine Light shine in you!”

This Christmas wish I send.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
