Falling in Love with the Divine

Man is really funny. He likes complexity. If a veil is not wrapped around truth, he is uninterested. He does not want to take only one step; it is more interesting to look forward to millions of steps. We are like children playing thousands of times in a maze. We want to know what real love is, what truth is but generally speaking most seekers like the maze. That is why the mystics and the sages made the greatest truths a mystery, to be given only to the few who were ready for them, letting the others play because it was the time for them to play.

Many seekers look for phenomena; many of them want wonder working and communication with entities on the other side who they assume must know more than they do. They are looking for something complex, and yet the simplest things and the most valuable things in life are to be found in one's true Self.

Some people feel that the more mysterious and complicated written material is the more must be, right? They judge that if they do not understand it, they must not be enlightened. Or, if they do understand it better than others, they may judge themselves as being enlightened. This is foolishness because the greatest masters and teachers do their best to speak plainly and to the point.

If you are like I am, you desire to understand words of wisdom. Don't make it more complicated than the author intended it to be. Better yet, please do not compete with others in your attempt to understand the message. Enlightenment is not an intellectual exercise. Buried in the layers of matter lives a spirit, a spark, an indescribable, all-knowing, all-powerful being...the Divine. Who we are is not meant to be a mystery; it is meant to be known and lived. We are it. It is not necessary to seek phenomena or gifts. When we fall in love with the Divine, the sublime naturally appears in our lives.

If you passionately desire to be who you really are, the higher Self responds. In the face of such a desire, everything else is erased if we let it go. There is only the decision and the desire we have made today to live in the fullness of who we are and manifest a greater reality. On the computer, we delete that which is no longer beneficial. The same thing happens to us when we make a decision to accept our spiritual identity. A conscious intimacy with our eternal Self can be a relationship that gradually unfolds or it can occur over night.

Looking back over my life, I realized that falling in love with the Divine is built on trust. It is very similar to a physical love relationship if it is a true union. The relationship evolves through an interaction between two people or forces that are attracted to one another. In the case of soul evolution, it is spiritual living in action. The relationship far transcends the intellect. Our spirit identity and expressing it fully becomes a reason for living. Love is the motivating force in experiencing a higher consciousness. Books and workshops won't do it although they are a tremendous support to us at times. God Realization is a giant leap beyond outward tools.

To be one's true Self is to be alive in the deepest meaning of the word. It is a never ending blessing. Fall in love with the real you, the real that is in everyone and everything sometimes hidden and sometimes exposed. Unveil it and BE yourself. The awesome power of your inner spirit is unraveled and the grace and glorious gift of oneness is consciously yours. Do yourself a favor. Don't make the journey difficult. Simply accept and love the light of who you are. Your consciousness is needed. It is time for us to do the Great Work in love and in truth.

In harmony,
