Dancing With God; Love on the rocks...

May I please trash your home. If you don't mind; I wish to make a proper mess. I promise, nothing will be left in working order.

Who do you love?

Be honest with yourself; tell me what I least expect!

Society programmed you to dispense love as a commodity. You learned how to apportion love only under conditions of recompense. Relationships with family, friends and lovers, thrive or whither, based on your ability to manage fair value in love trading negotiations. Another bizarre concept you blindly accept is that love must be earned. Positioning yourself upon such loose philosophical footings inevitably limits the love you are prepared to offer or accept. You lack self love. Like a rudderless boat; you seek, but never find, calm waters or safe harbour.
From earliest moments of infant reason; you carried yokes of competition, your embitterment has always been steeled with judgment. Be it home, school, or work, you incessantly competed for the most attention, highest marks, or best paying jobs. Warped by corporate mind programming; you seem convinced success is a function of looks, education or material wealth. You covet the latest media rendition of "the perfect dream". Ripping through life in designer sunglasses and Gucci shoes looks cool; however, materialism leaves you little time for introspective philosophy. After all, figuring out who you are, or why you exist, has never paid the rent. Harmful as this banality may be; you go one step further by creating a relationship between self worth and love. From this cliff edge of insanity you compete for status. Once you have failed to achieve perfection, you secretly judge yourself unworthy of love. Emptiness in your heart is filled by an insatiable greed for accomplishment. Your life has become a meaningless game of snakes and ladders, pay attention to what you loose as you compete for that top square.

Tell me I am wrong! You can't, not if you speak from your heart.

I speak with the conviction of knowing you, this is because I am speaking to your ego self. Ego is a monkey existing in a land of illusion you call your mind. This monkey hides in your thoughts; spinning his magic tales, you have become convinced he is you. Continued belief in this deception will never lead you to the divinity of your true, unadulterated self.

Who are you really?

Lord Krishna speaks to Arjuna of death as illusion. Einstein tells us "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."

Beyond all illusion; you are an eternal signature of light energy, you are the divine Atman. Look into the mirror; it is not a body you see, it is God. God did not create the universe; God became the universe. God did not create you; God became you. Once you can truly love yourself as the Atman, it is a very short step to loving the brother you deem wretched. There is no good, nor bad; there is no right nor wrong, there is only choice. Without exception, all choice is God dancing with God eternally in the perfection of the now moment.

In Lak' ech, I love you...

  1. hmmm... if only love wasn't treated as a barter system! well.. i can summarise yr piece in broadly 3 points:
    a) emphasis on selfless love
    b) importance of loving yourself (before you even think of loving others/expect to be loved)
    c) self exploration.(putting together the broken mirrors)

    don't why i did that... nevertheless thanks for sharing.
    i love you too. =)

  2. Namaste my sister Bani, fair call with the synopsis. However, I would extend self exploration to include the determination of truth beyond the illusion of ego. We have such a hard time seeing the oneness of all manifest reality. The home that I invade and trash is the home of ego.

    In Lak' ech, dearest sister, only unconditional love is truth...

  5. as always, brother, this post of yours must not but touch the very core of the hearts of honest readers. this surely must make them rethink and reposition themselves towards how they value their true selves. as you have hinted, Love is abounding, but most times Love is greatly misunderstood .. thanks again for this reminder.

  6. Namaste brother Sito, always my honour to enjoy your visit.

    I see in the world a bizarre irony. You could argue there exists no love in the world. The backbone of this argument; love cannot exist in the presence of conditions. Either we love all manifest reality equally as ONE, or, we accept that we do not understand love.

    Conversely; you could argue that love is all there is. The essence of this argument is the undeniable truth that all manifest reality is God experiencing "beingness" in the eternal now.

    When we synthesise the argument we find:

    Humanity is a singular expression of consciousness; experiencing, the collective illusion of separation.

    When one becomes seven billion: Love can never discover itself

    When seven billion become ONE: unconditional love is all that exists

    In Lak' ech, dear brother Sito, love is unity:unity is love.
