A common space for harmonic peacemakers
Love is the water of the universe. See that water flow and take the entire negative and wash it away. Love is the source love is God. You are love itself -- when you are not afraid. All suffering is born of desire. True love is never frustrated. How can the sense of unity be frustrated? What can be frustrated is the desire for expression. Such desire is of the mind. As with all things mental, frustration is inevitable.
Your mind projects a structure and you identify yourself with it. It is in the nature of desire to prompt the mind to create a world for its fulfillment. Even a small desire can start a long line of action; what about a strong desire? Desire can produce a universe; its powers are miraculous. Just as a small matchstick can set a huge forest on fire, so does a desire light the fires of manifestation the very purpose of creation is the fulfillment of desire. The desire may be noble, or ignoble, space is neutral -- one can fill it with what one likes: You must be very careful as to what you desire. Love is the water that purifies turning negative in to positive, letting the light in. And as to the people you want to help, they are in their respective worlds for the sake of their desires; there is no way of helping them except through their desires. You can only teach them to have right desires so that they may rise above them and be free from the urge to create and re- create worlds of desires, abodes of pain and pleasure.
Life is love and love is life. What keeps the body together but love? What is desire, but love of the self? What is fear but the urge to protect? And what is knowledge but the love of truth? The means and forms may be wrong, but the motive behind is always love -- love of the me and the mine. The mine and me may be small, or may explode and embrace the universe, but love remains. There is the material world and the spiritual between lays the universal mind, which is also the universal heart. It is unconditional love that makes the two one; it is the mental or psychological link between the spirit and matter. When the psyche is raw, undeveloped, quite primitive, it is subject to gross illusions. As it grows in breadth and sensitivity, it becomes a perfect link between pure matter and pure spirit and gives meaning to matter and expression to spirit, awakening the I AM. Hold on to the thought that you are the ground of all knowledge, the immutable and perennial awareness of all that happens to the senses and the mind. If you keep that in mind all the time, aware and alert, you will break the bounds, emerge into pure light and love. The idea -- 'I am the witness only' -- will purify the body and the mind and open the eye of wisdom. You will then go beyond illusion and your heart will be free of all desires. Just like ice turns to water and water to vapor, and vapor dissolves in air and disappears in space, so does the body dissolve into pure awareness then into pure being which is beyond all existence and non-existence. The difference is in the meaning attached to the words 'I am'. With the realized man the experience: 'I am the world, the world is mine' is supremely valid -- You think, feel and act integrally and in unity with all that lives. You may not even know the theory and practice of self- realization, and be born and bred free of religious and metaphysical notions. But there will not be the least flaw in your understanding and compassion. Because you are no longer bound by appearances, you do not identify yourself with the name and shape. You use memory, but memory cannot use you As long as you are a seeker, better cling to the idea that you are pure consciousness, free from all content. To go beyond consciousness is the supreme state. All desire is born from memory and is within the realm of consciousness. What is beyond is clear of all striving. The very desire to go beyond consciousness is still in consciousness. Let it all go and In the light follow you inner most Heart. Be all -- love all -- be happy -- make happy. No happiness is greater.
