The recipe for LOVE is to BE LOVING
The thing is, we live in the most interesting of times. On the back-end of legendary calamities . . .we’re talking two World Wars and a PEACE that has seen an average of . . .is it really an average of sixty wars going on around the planet at any one time within the last fifty years? Planet Earth is apparently not for the faint-hearted. Humans have also waged heavy duty industrialized warfare on entire species of plants and animals. We are doing a very good job of this. Our blitzkrieg scorched-Earth destruction of the flora and fauna has a terrifying aspect of unconscious darkness about it. We must consider that we humans are going through a kind of spiritual emergency – literally an emergence – the birth of something. But what?
Looking back on our recorded and not just recent history it is easy to conclude that there has been a certain stuckness, and a certain intransigence to our waywardness. The power of our destructive and self-destructive ways have had a savage intensity. The overwhelming question we must now ask ourselves is. . .are we ready? Are we ready for LOVE? This is not something we can foist on others. The real revolution MUST occur at the personal level of awareness and consciousness FIRST for it to have any meaning in the wider domain. So how does that happen?
The recipe for LOVE is to BE LOVING. But how do you do that? Perhaps there are a couple of simple things to be aware of. And then there are some complex ones for the multi-dimensionaly inclined – a kind of ten dimensional Chess aspect to it. For why would LOVE want to limit itself? But you if you start with the achievable and let success self-organise from there – that’s probably the right path.
In the age of Chaos and revolution -which we are most definitely in – the simple stable datum that you can hold to by which all other things can suddenly make sense is this. Sovereign Self-Love and all embracing care. Just decide that you get to decide if LOVE is going to be present or not . . .and then do love. It’s not really that important if you’re a minute or two late, or if you get served a few minutes after the other person. If you stop and give small change to the busker it’s OK. People will not look at you and think you are weak. For having the presence of mind and the character to stop and GIVE is strength – NOT weakness. Extending little civilised courtesies as you go about your busy life is a nice LOVE generator to put into your daily LIFE. And in the ways of CHAOS that moment to moment LOVE you give will not die but it will be reborn and expand out a thousand fold. This . . .THIS in the age of CHAOS and revolution can be enacted with religious integrity and tap into your own infinite potential and power to GIVE LOVE and to BE LOVE. This in essence is what Post-post modernism looks like. This from a classical perspective is what the much vaunted New Age is all about. The recipe for LOVE is to BE LOVING
What if doing all that giving makes me angry . . .at some point? Then write about your anger on a piece of paper. Express your anger legitimately, burn the piece of paper (make sure it’s a safe action) and keep going with the religion of LOVE. These are simple things. To GIVE, RESPOND and RESPECT. We haven’t reached any kind of deep and meaningful trust here yet. The key is commitment, perseverance. Stay anonymous. Don’t expect any reward, and like the advertisement says . . .JUST DO IT! Moment to moment, day to day . .Love. You will find that THIS is a truly revolutionary act. The recipe for LOVE is to BE LOVING
