"The Spirit of Love lies deep within
Awaiting our reason to let it begin
Not part of our body, far greater it's role
Pure MIND over matter, to nurture the SOUL
But what of this love we so desperately seek
It will take it's own course, come alive as we meet
The love of our mothers, our sisters and brothers
A message from God, just like all the others
But is this the love that gave us reason to BE
Or a step on our Journey of residual intimacy
We need the fulfilment on a material front
But what lies deep within 'tis our destiny to hunt
To search for a meaning, this reason to be
Look beyond mortal loving, a love within thee
For it's not just a surface love, a kiss and a hug
So much more inside ME gives the heartstrings a tug
Be mindful of your Journey to pursue The White Dove
Awareness of your Spirit will blend happiness with love
For pure love is the answer, your reason to BE
To BELIEVE there is light within love, go find your real ME"
aka Brendan Lauritz
Yep, a beautiful time. I'm sure you will agree......
And Chrissie time is special family time. To be together. Not as individual Mums, Dads, kids and the rest of the family. But as ONE. A unit. A solid family unit. ONE.
A special time to SHARE. The gifts. The joy. The laughter. The dinner. The LOVE.
And I probably am. I was never emotionally able to express myself until I crawled under the rock a few years ago. Then I began to LEARN. To ask questions of myself. And I started digging my way out from under that rock. Before the rock Christmas time was a good excuse to hit the sauce a bit more than usual and party with a reason for the season. Misguided reasoning. But a few years ago I was given the greatest Chrissie gift of all. I was given ME, the Upper Case one. And I read about LOVE from people who know like Dr Victor Frankyl and Scott F Peck. This love we share during our time on Earth is of a material kind. It is the LOVE we are given. As a gift to SHARE. And we do so with our beloved families and friends and others we get to meet along the path. THAT is the majesty of a love well GIVEN. A beautiful part of ONE LOVE.
But then there is the LOVE we must FIND. The LOVE of a Spiritual kind. The LOVE we must hunt down to realise what the Buddhists call ENLIGHTENMENT. It is pure unrequited LOVE. A completeness of being. A Universal LOVE. It is.....
And it is hidden within us. It LIVES within our consciousness. A resident of our souls. The Director of our minds. ONE united. And we are given a lot of help to find this LOVE. This eternal ONE LOVE. We are given tests as we travel along the path. Tests like pain, suffering, guilt, tragedy and hardship. Sounds funny I know but these GIFTS help us soul search for the meaning. The reason. The LOOK OF LOVE we need to find. So....
I don't think you will find one of the above in our bodies. And yet ONE LOVE, well in fact ANY love, will not be found without these three thingies. And I call them 'thingies' for want of a more appropriate description. Many people associate 'love' with the heart which I guess is pretty cute and sells a lot of roses and cards on Valentines day. But of course it's a lot of gobbledegook (?). The heart only lives for the time of the body, along with the blood and guts, bones and brains. The body is a piece of matter made up of atoms and packs up after a while. The body lives. The body dies. But those other three thingies are more a part of your existence than your body. And they are eternal. A part of our Upper Case ME. A part of our eternal subjective non-linear existence. And they are part of our ONE LOVE. We all have a 'personal' soul and mind, part of our 'personal' consciousness. And these 'personal' souls and minds are a part of our Universal consciousness.
Our ONE MIND, ONE SOUL, OUR ONE ETERNAL CONSCIOUSNESS.
It is subjective reality and although that is contradictory, it must be understood to understand, if you get the drift. So keep going on your Journey and accept with gratitude the obstacles that get thrown your way for they are given to guide. To make us LOOK for the LOVE. To take us to our destiny.
And when this body form runs it's race and goes back to whence it came (dust to dust sorta) there will be another 'form' to greet us. The ONE LOVE of our Universal Consciousness.
So look for the LIGHT. Look forward to the LIGHT.
And look for the WHITE DOVE.
But before your bodily form disappears from this objective existence we live, there is a condition that must be met before you will SEE the subjective 'reality' of your eternal existence..........
O COME ALL YE FAITHFUL
