>God’s Love and The Long Struggle

>I- God is Love

God is love. Love is God.

To love God with all our hearts, we must love one another

In our faithfulness to love, we find our true selves.

The absence of love is perceived as hate, just as light is perceived as darkness.

The light of love is born anew, whenever we embrace our true existence.

Nothing pure can be twisted- yet eternal truths vanish from the sight of the blind.

Death is the end of one state and the birth of another, even if it cannot yet be seen. The lost caterpillar will yet emerge from his chrysalis.

II- The Long Struggle

A struggle is ever afoot in the human heart, as the powers of light and darkness vie for control there.

Darkness attempts to maximize it’s conquests in the sphere of time, for in the expanse of eternal life, of mythic time, it has already been defeated.

This struggle must needs be experienced and won by a conscious, moral choice. Even if the victory is assured, through love it must be chosen.

There are two sides to experiencing love- its light fulfillment and the heavy frustration when things don’t go our way.

Love is only the real experience we can have.

Sakura blossoms are like love- light and joyful, soon to fade away, yet ever to return.

Love as a thought is steady in its state. Love as an experience is dynamic, ever-changing.

By seeking the very best we can conceive, our noblest instincts, we find something far, far greater.

III- The Paths of Life

We live in a universe of many choices. We can think creative or destructive thoughts of the same things.

One branch in the path leads to life, the other to death. We commit ourselves, moment by moment, to either force.

When we follow our true desires, we chose love every time.

In the broad ways of the world, there are many paths of confusion, yet a narrow one of truth.

Salvation rescues us from the erring ways of the world, through the very grace of God’s eternal love.

The very journey of salvation is showered in the blessings of arrival.

God’s love is in the world, yet not of it.

Love follows the values of gentleness, long-suffering, compassion, grace. It may influence the worldly ways of profit, but it has quite different values.

IV- Revelation

Now we will reveal the truth: You are love, in as much as you are a dewdrop of creation.

You have the eternal powers to create whole worlds, deep inside you, just as does your true Father.

Universe upon universe, world upone world, we refine our abilities towards this glorious end.

To be co-partakers in creation and eventually creators ourselves, we find our way to our destiny.

This spiritual evolution, in the many schools of life, is apposite to any concept of power over others.

We see power for others, to transcend this selfish phase to one of total selflessness.

We give, as the tree supports the birds, as the suns support whole worlds, we too focus our love to give light to others.

This is the true path eternal, the path we glimpse and taste even now.

In The eternal present, now and forever.

Amen.
