Through the bridge of conscious heart
the sacred marriage takes place between human and divine earth and heaven.
All become who they are unified aspects of eternal One.

than the power of hatred,
because when you love someone,
at that time his divine qualities have to come forward."

"What is love? If love means possessing someone or something
then that is not real love; that is not pure love.
If love means giving and becoming one with everything,
with humanity and divinity, then that is real love."

The Path of Heart is not a religion-it is way to know ourselves, to find our purpose in life-our mission, to find out where we come from and discover the secrets of the Universe. Our unfolding awareness begins a new life in a new order.

Living our awareness requires that we live our truth, which means to state the truth of our particular experience however conflicted it may be. Self-acceptance arises from the freedom to evaluate our selves clearly and through the changes we have made in our selves. This means that we accept and include the dejected parts of self that feel betrayed or misunderstood. When we are aware of, responsible for, and accepting of our own and others judgments we can be more honest and present with ourselves because we do not need to hide in blame, shame or fear anymore. To do other than this would volunteer victimhood. As we become more aligned with the essence of our true nature that is love we more readily accept our selves and others as they are. Coming from this loving place opens our hearts in mutual compassion and stimulates the innate potential for healing in oursleves and in our relationships.

Love is not a verb, it is a noun because it is energetic stuff we are made of that emanates from our core. It is what we experience when we return to our original state of being. We can see its quality in everything especially when we extend the love that we have for ourselves to others. Loving is not something we contemplate or intellectualize doing. It is actively holding the space of love by being present! So in our wisdom and compassion we recognize that a mean spirited person is in pain simply armoring the personality self defensively from any form of incoming love. It is a dejection of Self.

Self-dejection is an ego structure that harms the Authentic Self by closing off receptivity to the flow of love thereby disconnecting from the life-line of Source. With this awareness we can reach out to a hardened heart with an open heart where oftentimes our caring alone will dissolve the armor, even if for an instant, to reveal a shining face and beaming smile of gratitude that someone actually cares. Love graciously received ultimately illuminates all of life. It has the capacity to restore the broken peices of our lives. When we love our selves we give permission for others to love them selves too, which makes us all capable of having healthier relationships. Love is infusive and living the 'Path of Heart' will always guide us to right process.

Excerpted from, "The Essential Self, Cultivating the Sacred Feminine" by Alisa Battaglia

Love always

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is longsuffering, and is kind; love does not envy, is not impertinent, and it does not boast; love is not rude, does not seek her own, is not irritable, and does not think evil; love does not delight in injustice but rejoices in the truth; love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends

St Paul

Love always

Dear friends,

Have posted this in another thread, but it also fits in this one:

Excerpted from Paramahansa Yogananda's book,
"Where There Is Light"

Many human beings say "I love you" one day and reject you the next. That is not love.

One whose heart is filled with the love of God cannot willfully hurt anyone.
When you love God without reservation, He fills your heart with His unconditional love for all.
That love no human tongue can describe....
The ordinary man is incapable of loving others in this way.

Self-centered in the consciousness of "I, me, and mine,"
he has not yet discovered the omnipresent God who resides in him
and in all other beings.

(Copyright Self-Realization Fellowship)


Much love and blessings

" Divine love is the expansion of our consciousness.
The very nature of divine love is to expand, expand, expand
and become one with all that it touches.
The more we expand ourselves, the sooner we feel
the Universal Consciousness as our very own.
And when we feel the Universal Consciousness as our very own,
at that time we become the Universal Self. "

this is the golden key to advancing spiritually
to live a life with meaning is to live intentionally

to be completely naked...totally surrendered
from this empty state...true love is rendered

it is so simple and yet the hardest task
to open your heart for all others to bask

not just your family...not just your friends
if you leave anyone out your light dead ends

laughter and compassion are the tools to this trade
return to the open heart if in judgment you've strayed

forgiveness and freedom are your trustworthy allies
they will return you to the center like a soothing lullabie

mistakes are bound to occur for we are all pupils on a path
the will of the most high is a will of love...not a will of wrath

peace,
mikey

The Meaning of Love

Both light and shadow
are the dance of Love.
Love has no cause;
it is the astrolabe of God’s secrets.
Lover and Loving are inseparable
and timeless.

Although I may try to describe Love
when I experience it I am speechless.
Although I may try to write about Love
I am rendered helpless;
my pen breaks and the paper slips away
at the ineffable place
where Lover, Loving and Loved are one.

Every moment is made glorious
by the light of Love.


RUMI



Much love

Can You Install Love?

Customer Service Rep: Can you install LOVE?
Customer: I can do that. I'm not very technical, but I think I am ready to install now. What do I do first?

CS Rep: The first step is to open your HEART. Have you located your HEART ma'am?

Customer: Yes I have, but there are several programs running right now. Is it okay to install while they are running?

CS Rep: What programs are running ma'am?

Customer: Let me see.... I have PASTHURT.EXE, LOWESTEEM.EXE, GRUDGE.EXE, and RESENTMENT.COM running right now.

CS Rep: No problem. LOVE will automatically erase PASTHURT.EXE from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory, but it will no longer disrupt other programs. LOVE will eventually overwrite LOWESTEEM.EXE with a module of its own called HIGHESTEEM.EXE. However, you have to completely turn off GRUDGE.EXE and RESENTMENT.COM. Those programs prevent LOVE from being properly installed. Can you turn those off ma'am?

Customer: I don't know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?

CS Rep: My pleasure. Go to your Start menu and invoke FORGIVENESS.EXE. Do this as many times as necessary until GRUDGE.EXE and RESENTMENT.COM have been completely erased.

Customer: Okay, I'm done. LOVE has started installing itself automatically. Is that normal?

CS Rep: Yes it is. You should receive a message that says it will reinstall for the life of your HEART. Do you see that message?

Customer: Yes I do. Is it completely installed?

CS Rep: Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin connecting to other HEARTS in order to get the upgrades.

Customer: Oops...I have an error message already. What should I do?

CS Rep: What does the message say?

Customer: It says "ERROR 412 - PROGRAM NOT RUN ON INTERNAL COMPONENTS." What does that mean?

CS Rep: Don't worry ma'am, that's a common problem. It means that the LOVE program is set up to run on external HEARTS but has not yet been run on your HEART. It is one of those complicated programming things, but in non-technical terms it means you have to "LOVE" your own machine before it can "LOVE" others.

Customer: So what should I do?

CS Rep: Can you find the directory called SELFACCEPTANCE"?

Customer: Yes, I have it.

CS Rep: Excellent, you are getting good at this.

Customer: Thank you.

CS Rep: You're welcome. Click on the following files and then copy them to the "MY HEART" directory: FORGIVESELF.DOC, SELFESTEEM.TXT, REALIZEWORTH.TXT and GOODNESS.DOC. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching any faulty programming. Also, you need to delete SELFCRITIC.EXE from all directories, and then empty your recycle bin afterwards to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.

Customer: Got it. Hey! My HEART is filling up with really neat files. SMILE.MPG is playing on my monitor right now and it shows that WARMTH.COM, PEACE.EXE, and CONTENTMENT.COM are copying themselves all over my HEART!

CS Rep: Then LOVE is installed and running. You should be able to handle it from here. One more thing before I go...

Customer: Yes?

CS Rep: LOVE is freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everybody you meet. They will in turn share it with other people and they will return some really neat modules back to you.

Customer: I will. Thank you for your help.
