Introduction: beyond just conceptual
Many ‘spiritual aspirants’ consider love to be a
It is true that love is a concept, but so too is
every impression, definition and action that we perceive and move
through, while we journey though a lifetime on this planet.
Perhaps it is important here to recognize that
the moment our parents’ sexual fluids mix, (ideally in the state of
love) sparking a single cell manifestation, ‘
we (our earthly identity as to who are and who we
shall be) are conceived’.
This magical action is called conception.
Therefore it is clear that the rest of our lives are rooted in
Some concepts hinder us. Some propel us to
greater heights when we embody them, so it is with love.
When the concept becomes an embodiment of
incomprehensibility, it is then, actualized. Then, it is a direct
experience, an expression of our ‘way of being’.
So it is with love, spiritual integrity,
gratitude, self-inquiry and self-honesty. These spiritually
significant concepts mature us and profoundly expand our awareness.
Then, a concept is beyond, ‘just conceptual’.
Changes One And All
"God is love" - Sri Hasrajji Maharajji
"Love for the Self, this consciousness, ‘I
am’, those who have understood this as the true love, have
themselves become love. All has merged in them". - Nisargadatta
is no remedy for love but to love more." - Henry David Thoreau
"Love is not just looking at each other, it's
looking in the same direction." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
"Now join your
hands, and with your hands your hearts". - William Shakespeare /
"There's only one
corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's
your own self" - Aldous Huxley:
Why do all Great Beings1, throughout
history declare, somewhere in their teachings, that love is
absolutely central to spiritual awakening?
It is because the experience of love expands our
energetic field, silences our mind in wonder and clearly confirms
our essential oneness within the seamless multiverse2.
Love is a Divine3 window, through
which we have a direct experience, an actualized realization, of the
Love calls out to us from every experience,
inward and outwardly, to enter love, life’s most insistent and
We are and have been directed by those Great
Masters, to ‘be keenly aware of this divine jewel that resides
within our hearts. Love is a stirring of inner forces and brings our
senses to a heightened state of appreciation for even the simplest
A heightened appreciation for our common
experience naturally cascades into the awareness of grace, and an
out-pouring of gratitude.
Gratitude opens our heart and creates a
consciousness crescendo into oneness.
We feel it and we experience it, an energetic
uplifting frequency, true openness. This may be very subtle or it
may be very overwhelming. Whatever it is, it is beneficial to our
soul and awakens us with a direct experience of the magnificence
that surrounds us.
When we enter the energetic current of love, of
gratitude, we are mirrored in our hearts… as boundless becoming,
un-known, yet to be discovered, exquisite and uncomplicated. This
is… our essential nature.
Pathways are Countless
After all… (Considering the real-magic of love,
gratitude, timeless echoes and the grandeur that surrounds us)
The topic of love is so deep and so multifaceted…
Last night, I laid the computer down and went
outside into the darkness. The sky was filled with glimmer, like
sequins sparkling on a black velvet evening gown.
Looking up at the moon, a tiny silver sliver
hanging high amid the shinning stars. I talked to the stars,
directing my attention to the star-gate of Orion. I asked, (I often
speak with the stars): "where should I direct the reader… into
these multi-layered dimensions of love?"
I waited and listened. Orion answered, “What
kind of love is it that creates a stellar nursery, a tree, the sound
of thunder, a drop of rain? What kind of love makes the sun shine in
radiance creates the song of the ocean and potential in a seed?"
I have heard this beautiful elaboration from the
heavenly bodies before…the same reminder. Then I knew where to go.
Orion said: “remember, it is a time when we so urgently need to
lift our frequency and clear our mind by living…rooted in our wide
open heart. “
Thank You Orion.
is it so important at this time?
It is a time of great change on our planet. Don’t
you feel it deep in your bones? I’m sure everyone does.
It is a time when the greatest opportunity awaits
our decision as individuals as well as a species. It is a time for
us to either; continue along the path of mental dullness,
self-indulgence and ‘Self ’-negation and fear, or to step into a
completely new way of being on here, on Earth.
Actually many of us see that the ‘New World’ is
already here right now (within us). We just (when we choose, when
you choose) need to step into it.
It is a time of great change. There is an
opportunity for a mass awakening on our planet and it is occurring
right now. There are hoards of clear-sighted people who are
dedicated and involved in, a genuine mass awakening.
You may not think this is possible, considering
the condition of humanity at this time, however… possibility is our
A new world, of a mass
This view of a new world, of a mass awakening is
upheld by ancient indigenous people such as the Mayans, the Kogi,
the Queros of Peru, the Native Americans as well as contemporary
visionaries, radical thinkers, cosmologists, astronomers and
scientists world- wide.
The Mayan Calendar ends (the exact date is
unsure) around 2012. The Mayan elders have stated that we are moving
into a new world, a world of higher states of consciousness.
They say that it’s not the end of this world, but
a “new dawning of a new day, a new beginning”. The systems that we
have adhered to for so long are now completely exhausted, fragmented
and dying. This antiquated system has never been supportive of life,
true vision or creative insightfulness.
Now, at this time everything according to the old
system is reducing to ash. And, out of the ash the phoenix is
Now, our “True Spirit” demands a change,
attention, respect and expression.
Meeting thousands of people, while moving across
the planet almost constantly, I see that many, many people are in
fact deeply concerned. And, are excitedly involved in the expression
of divine wisdom.
They are leaving an old way of divisiveness and
entering an activated vision of our world, one that supports a
universal revival of creative living. It is as though the
‘seed-idea’ of the sixties has spiritually matured and has deepened,
as a real necessity rather than just a wild party. Although, I have
to admit, the wild sixties was a very cool time. But, it was a
squashed resonance at best.
In English the word revolution
contains the word love, mirrored backwards within it. That’s a hint
The wisdom of love
Let us consider what has kept us humans, from
achieving a world where we can truly cultivate higher states of
Why, have we, who are so creative, so resourceful
and intelligently capable people, brought ourselves to the brink of
obliteration? It is because we have traded in the wisdom of love for
a preoccupation with fear. Love opens and reveals our unity, is
creative, is creation itself, wise and beneficial for all. It is
the fabric of the universe…says Orion.
The indigenous people (thought they had their
problems) could live on Earth for tens of thousands of years without
disturbing it. Because they respected and loved the Earth, they
lived well-considered lives. Being well considered, and respectful
are qualities of love.
Our soul food and our
Fear suppresses our better judgment and divides
us from one another and therefore we are easily controlled. Fear
also creates distance in us, from our selves, each other and from
our natural world.
We are as a species, very, very far from nature.
Nature reveals the inherent order of life, a
display of genuine of cosmic love.
While standing in front of the roaring ocean,
upon a magnificent beach on the Pacific Coast…it became evident to
me that people go ‘way off balance’ because they don’t relate to
We humans do not breathe fresh air, nor do we
have time or even take time, to lie lazily in the tall grass,
observing the shapes of passing clouds, sighing with an emotional
release of appreciation. This natural experience is our soul food,
our inspiration, our mental peace and our emotional balance.
We work too hard, too many hours, eat in front of
the television, filling ourselves with political lies, deceitful
images of smiling happy people buying things they don’t need. We are
out of touch with our food, with how we affect each other and with
an appreciation of life in general.
As a species, we feel lonely isolated fearful and
tightly controlled, by markets, media and the onslaught of
We spiritually miss the relationship and
expression of nature’s powerful elegance. It lifts and strengthens
Instead, we live in a boxed-in world that makes
us feel fearful of what’s outside the box, or even, what might jump
into the box.
This constricts our confidence, like a mouse
caught in a tight corner in presence of a few outrageously hungry
cats. Fear makes us wither and wince at the thought of changing what
we are accustom to…
Somehow, though we do feel like that mouse in our
box…we have become accustom to it.
Therefore, our innovation as true creative
visionaries, are for a large part, are left uncreated and unshared.
Fear splits or consciousness and fragments our
is an experience of our wholeness
While love is an experience of our wholeness,
integrating creative insight with intelligent action. In love we
relate to each other in miraculous ways. To be really fair here,
humanity is not a complete failure. There are great strides that
human being have in fact made…so many, we couldn’t never begin to
consider them in this article…but even so, we have come to the brink
of extinction, through inconsideration, and short-sightedness.
We all know this box so well. And, to get out of
the box forever, we need to consider the sinking of a species. We
all know deep inside that we must rise in consciousness, and
therefore…foresight and creativity… if we’re going to move forward
as a species at all.
What do you choose: love or fear?
We have forgotten that the stars appear every
night in the heavens and that they have a voice and they listen. We
have forgotten how to speak to the heavens and how to receive them.
Awakened people live in awe of our outer and inner worlds, beyond
the confines of constriction.
Einstein once said “Two things inspire me to
awe: the starry heavens and the moral universe within”.
Now people everywhere are reassessing what
‘freedom of being’ really means to us.
What it means to the future and those yet to
When you reflect on it, there are infinite
expressions of love and infinite expressions of fear. Which
environment do you choose for your life?
Regardless of the notions of choice and
choice-less-ness, it is up to you. That is a wonderful thing! True
choice-less-ness means, I can only love. Here, I am open, I am true,
in integrity, in my power and I am helplessly in love. I can do
nothing other than this. I have no choice.
This makes us strong, intuitive and intelligently
confident. Everything else is indeed a choice.
Until you reach so far inside your heart that you
can do nothing but be in the state of love, lifting the frequency of
the planet…until then you do choose to or not to.
cross roads of humanity.
Here we are, at a cross roads, where humanity
stands at this time.
Our world is changing and the whole of creation
is inviting the human species to participate in shifting
consciousness to higher frequencies of beneficial wise and open
eradicating fear by living freely in the heart.
Love is a Divine Window, through which we have a
direct experience, an actualized realization, of the Great Mystery.
Love expands our energetic fields, silences our
mind in wonder and clearly confirms our essential oneness within the
seamless multiverse. Now is the time to be what you truly are, an
expression of the Great Mystery’s pure love and unfathomable wisdom.
We find our way by commitment. When we consider
what we truly want, and that desire leads us to our heart then
everything that you need to know comes streaming into your
awareness. Be patient and tenacious, the world is being initiated
into higher states of consciousness… You are part of the circle of
life. To fearlessly open your heart, is a leap into participation.
We are, right now, in the midst of a shift in
consciousness on this planet, love and gratitude are the sure keys
