Loving the Cosmos
All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well. For there is a Force of love moving through the universe that holds us fast and will never let us go. (Julian of Norwich)
Every human being streams at night into the loving nowhere. (Rumi)
Love is the source and the meaning of life.
(Pope Francis, 6m40s, posted April 2017, accessed 12 June 2017)
Love is a cosmic energy that is spread throughout the universe. Love exists in the earth, in water and air, in the sun and the stars. It exists in stones and plants and animals; and it exists of course in human beings, but not just in them. This is why you must never feel deprived of love simply because you have not got a man or a woman to hold in your arms. It is not the body, the flesh, that can give you love, for love does not dwell there. Love can use a physical body as a medium, a vehicle, but love itself is elsewhere. Indeed, it is everywhere; it is a light, a nectar, an ambrosia that fills the whole of space.
You should first of all love the Whole;
By loving the Whole you will love the parts.
When you attain cosmic love, you love all beings
Because the unity of life is real to you.
(Beinsa Douno, Gems of Love and Wisdom, p.17)
Light spirits in the invisible world are constantly making exchanges of love: they meet in space, greet each other, exchange pure rays of light and continue their journey. Not having a physical body does not prevent exchanges and love. You too, you do this with the creatures around you, thousands of exchanges that are not physical. You do not kiss everyone, you do not take everyone in your arms, but you continually have encounters that nourish you and make you happy. Why not increase the number and quality of these exchanges? Love as understood by most humans, this ardent, selfish, possessive, jealous and cruel love, is true slavery. You may say, ‘But we have a body, we cannot express ourselves as angels do.’ In fact, let me tell you, it is not your body that is the most against the spiritual manifestations of love, it’s your psychic world that you have not learned to control and enlighten. Having a body does not prevent you from coming closer to this spiritual concept of love, for the soul and mind are just as real as our physical body and they can make exchanges with all other souls and all other spirits in the universe.
The Master Peter Deunov used to say, ‘If you nurture within yourself the idea of love in its most sublime form, you receive help from thousands upon thousands of loving souls, for love implies the collective work of a multitude of souls joined together by the idea of love. Divine love is the greatest power there is. Never doubt this truth, if you wish the souls working in its name to always remain close to you.’ These words deserve to be meditated upon, chewed over and digested, for they open up amazing horizons for us. Once we have arrived at this divine conception of love, we shall attract thousands of souls from on high, who will come to help us and support us. Human language is weak when it comes to expressing the joy of those who are visited by love such as this. They need only catch sight of a man’s or woman’s face in passing to feel fulfilled. (O.M. Aïvanhov)
The higher form of love is a state of consciousness in which all beings must learn to live one day. This state of consciousness cannot be described, nor can it be explained to someone who is not ready to live it; all that can be done is to try to lead them there gradually. This state of consciousness allows a person to feel inwardly connected with the universe; they are then like an instrument vibrating in unison with all that exists, they feel a profound sense of peace and, above all, tremendous goodwill towards all beings. They do not know where this positive disposition comes from; they simply feel that it has permeated their entire being, driving them to express themselves with love and understanding. They see nature and humans in a new light and they are happy.
Most people have such a limited understanding of love that the moment they fall in love they forget the whole world – nothing else exists for them. They are not yet used to experiencing love in a greater way. They impoverish it, mutilate it. It is no longer divine love, the love that pours forth, slaking the thirst of all creatures. True love is a love that embraces all creatures without limiting itself, without putting down roots with just one. This is why from now on men and women should be taught broader concepts and be less possessive and jealous. A husband should be glad to see his wife open her heart to the whole world, and the wife should also be happy that her husband has such a big heart. It will not stop them remaining faithful to one another. When two truly evolved beings marry, they have already allowed each other this mutual freedom beforehand. Each one is delighted to be able to love all other beings in all purity. The wife understands her husband, the husband his wife, and they both walk together toward heaven, for they live the true, boundless life. (O.M. Aïvanhov)
The more cosmically advanced the person we love, the more unemotional this love affair can be. Falling in love depends on how much the other person loves God. Your love should feel universal, make you want to work for the Cosmos.
(Lilla Bek, paraphrase of How We Acquired the Aura, track #1, 8m17s; excerpt)
You will understand what love truly is when you stop thinking of it as a feeling. Feeling is necessarily subject to variation, depending on who it is meant for, while genuine love is a state of consciousness independent of beings and circumstances. To love is not to have a feeling for someone but to live in love and do everything with love - speak, walk, eat, breathe, study with love... Love arises when we have brought all our organs, cells and faculties into a state of harmony, so that they vibrate in unison in light and peace. So love is a permanent state of consciousness. Those who have attained this state of consciousness feel their whole being imbued with divine fluids, and everything they do is a melody. (O.M. Aïvanhov)
You come to us from another world;
From beyond the stars and a void of space
Transcendent, pure – of unimaginable beauty.
Bringing with You the essence of Love.
You transform all who are touched by You –
Mundane concerns, troubles and sorrows dissolve in Your presence
Bringing joy to ruler & ruled, to peasants and kings.
You bewilder us with Your grace;
All evil is transformed into goodness.
You are the Master Alchemist!
You light the fire of Love in earth and sky,
In heart and soul of every being.
Through Your loving, existence & non-existence merge
All opposites unite
All that is profane becomes sacred again.
Be sure that in the Religion of Love, there are no believers or unbelievers
Love embraces all.
Love, true love, is not only superior to sexual attraction, but to sentiment as well. True love is not a feeling, but a state of consciousness. The attraction between two beings has to do with vibrations, with fluids; it depends on elements that are purely physical and is therefore subject to change. Feeling is already superior to attraction, because it may be inspired by factors of a moral, intellectual, or spiritual nature, but feeling is also variable: one day we love, the next we no longer love. Whereas love experienced as a state of consciousness lies well beyond circumstances and people. It is the state of a being who has become so pure, who has developed such self-mastery that they have succeeded in attaining the sublime regions of divine love. From that moment on, love dwells within them and, whatever their activities, they dispose of this love for the benefit of all creatures. (O.M. Aïvanhov)
