One Small Voice - Carole King


Stephen Lewis: Week in Review 144 — At a loss for words


Via Ram Dass


The first kind of love we are familiar with is the bio-chemical love, the, ‘Let’s make love.’ The second kind is romantic love, ‘Mary loves John and John loves Mary.’ This second kind of love, the romantic love and the need for love, has a polarity, which is hate and which involves jealousy and possessiveness. This kind of love is based on the fact that you don’t yet know who you are. And that the other person involved allows you to meet your true self by turning you on to the place inside yourself where you are love.

So you say “he and I” or “she and I are in love,” meaning we connect each other to the place in ourselves where we are love. This is needful love, because you need your connection, and if he or she splits, you can’t find the place in you where you are love. So you get frightened that you’re going to lose your connection.

The third quality of love is conscious love, where you have found that place in yourself and you become it. And you ‘are’ a statement of that love. And your every action is not consciously designed to assert that you love everyone, and everyone loves you, because you ‘are’ love.

Then, there is no more need for anyone to love you. All you experience is a feeling of present flow with everyone in the universe. You are in love with the universe. You are not actively loving, but you are ‘in’ love; you exist in the space of conscious love, which is Christ love. That’s what this whole game is about.

Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love // Flower of the Day: 01/29/17

“If we are putting into practice the instructions received, if we are able to put love in movement and stay present, even if we are in the midst of a great crisis and a whirlwind of negative thoughts and feelings that it generates, perhaps we can help the other, there by our side, suffering without any hope of a way out. We help the other by seeing the beauty and good that they have. We help by activating the qualities of the soul of the other. At this stage of the journey, it is important for us to focus on what is good in the other and in ourselves. This doesn’t mean that we close our eyes to the shadow, but we stop feeding it. We have already identified doubt and the lack of trust, so now we have to remove any energy that reinforces it. We put all of our attention into the trust we have gained.”
Sri Prem Baba

Via Daily Dharma / Differently Abled Dharma:

Who is the one that sees? What is mind? I think with something like deafness or blindness—or specifically deaf-blindness, where you are so within yourself—it’s almost its own wisdom tradition.
