Forget Me and Let Love Be

My face defined by changing mood
A body of parts
On an emotional ride
Carried on breakers of this earthly tide.
Forget me
And let love be.

Embodied in flesh
An unanswered thought
Travels in time on ancient space,
A wisp of eternity
Gathering mass
Until life comes forth in formal guise
By infinite grace
Of the Divine.

God the imponderable,
Still and immense
Beyond common sense.
Immortal moment
Strikes an awestruck mind
Forever behind now
But riveted to the point
Where reality breaks the spell
Of the dreamer and the dream.

Shimmering One
Light of a thousand suns
Golden glow of silence,
Love’s mystery
Venerated as She
Exalted in He
Sacred union in the flesh
A beginning with no end.
Forget me
And let love be.

The Aspects of Love

The aspects of love are as innumerable as the stars in the heavens. This is because love is a process of continual revelation, responding to the ever-changing tones of spirit in matter. Love is our stock as beings of the earth; without its restorative quality we’d be unable to function in our daily activities in the world.

The most powerful aspect of love in existence is the reflection of the opposite principle in physical form. This invokes the feeling of incipient love, arising from the recognition of the formless divine love within the body. For a woman, this is the most beautiful man; for a man, the most exquisite woman. This magnetic source of attraction is the initiating factor that triggers every life recurrence as the perennial search for completion as love in the world.

The aspect of love familiar to us all is personal love. The subconscious effect of the personal love of my mother, father, lover or children is emotional attachment. Attachment arises through the focus on a particular aspect of love in exclusion of the whole. Consequently our relationships are often spasmodic, with actions and words likely to be misinterpreted and distorted through the aberrations of the emotional self. The way of love ensures that whatever is loved personally will inevitably turn to pain, since all forms must eventually leave or depart through physical death.

Paradoxically, it’s the suffering and heartache experienced through the living life which directs us towards the purity of impersonal love. When an individual has suffered enough, which reveals itself as a climacteric point in the living process, the conscious detachment from personal to impersonal love begins. This is the most agonising death of all. To begin to love impersonally is to have discovered a higher love that is not reliant on the caprice of emotional feelings. Love is not an emotion. All emotions vacillate between the pleasure and pain of existence, whereas love is an unwavering state of stillness and equilibrium. It’s this timeless quality of love which makes it so universally appealing.

Love is the direct communication of the innate wonder and beauty of life, and can only be realised in the present. However, the common experience of love is based on past impressions and emotional recall. People tend to make a concept of love and settle for a pale replica of the real thing. The love of art, music, nature, friends, pets, hobbies, food, sport, or anything else, are all lesser aspects of love and eventually lose their appeal. As love becomes broader, the focus on what was previously valued reduces in intensity and the desire for repetition is diminished. The truth is that experience as a need is the attachment to existence and the cause of all pain and suffering.

Pure love, released on a wave of purified space, emerges as a unity of light from the realms of higher mind. As love passes through the gradations of the psyche it picks up the emotional residue of human experience. The further it extends towards the coarser vibrations of the sensory world, the greater the depletion of love’s virtue. Although love never varies and is experienced as exquisite beauty by everyone at some time, what is different is the clarity of space within an individual’s subconscious. For someone whose love is exclusively personal and coloured by emotional feelings, the subtlety of impersonal love will be less discernible and unable to be consciously realised.

Nevertheless, love ceaselessly endeavours to restore, in the outer realm, the unity of the original state of being. Although love fails, since this is impossible in a divisive world where bodies and objects are separate from each other, love perseveres regardless towards union with the source of its inspiration. The secret of love is its mystery. No mind can ever solve it, or ever will. This is because each of us, in our deepest centre, is love. It’s impossible to know what I am – only to be what I am in the ever-unfolding revelation of the moment.

Love is a cosmic idea which encapsulates all we can aspire to be as human beings. Love is God, the incomprehensible One whose manifold aspects we embody in life and death as immortal beings. The universe of stars and constellations are symbolic of the celestial aspect of love, which gives existence its immeasurable depth and purpose. This divine aspect of love is realised through loving the Source itself before any object or person. The integrity of life ensures we’re all disabused, eventually, of our false concepts and notions of life – until what remains is the idea of love itself, resplendent as the radiant point of the spiritual essence of the earth.

Never Too Late for Love

Regardless of age and past experience, it’s never too late for love. Love is the pivotal circumstance of everybody’s life, since it’s the inner impulse that never lets anyone rest for long. This is because woman is made for love and man is the great lover. As a universal state of supreme beauty, love is constant as the unifying principle in existence. But in a world where objects and people occupy a particular position in space and time, love is vulnerable to the forces of existence and must persevere in its task to restore the sense of separation to original unity.

Love has two aspects, both of which are extremely familiar to us all. There is the love of the indefinable, the inner source of radiance and joy. To love that which is unnameable, yet embraces everything that could possibly be imagined as a state of completion, is negation: the surrender of the person to the mystery behind the form. This inner devotion to the spirit out of existence has the effect of detaching from the world as a need for the repetition of experience. The second aspect is love in existence and this concerns everybody on earth. The attraction between man and woman is divine and never changes as an imperative for physical union between the opposite principles. What changes as people get older, or have experienced the often harsh lessons in their personal relationships, is the accumulation of emotion. Love is not an emotion but an original state of being. This timeless presence is the spiritual essence of the life, but is often imperceptible against the coarser vibrations of the emotional body.

People often become identified with their past hurts and disappointments of sex without love, and are adamant they will never again be subjected to such emotional pain. In my professional life I’ve encountered this on innumerable occasions, mostly with women. But when I’ve asked them if they still yearn for love, the answer is invariably ‘yes’ but with a reservation – they fear the sexual force of man and having to give in to his expectations and demands. Women who have experienced the disappointments, and sometimes degradation, of sex without love (and this is in most women’s experience), often cut off from man altogether. They are so appalled by his failure to love that they want no more to do with him at any personal level in their lives. Identified with their emotional suffering, they fail to perceive the protection that past experience has given them. This is for a woman to refuse to have sex with a man unless he’s able to demonstrate over time that he truly loves to be with her and is willing to take her on whatever the circumstances.

It’s quite common for older women to project their love exclusively onto grandchildren and live out their lives vicariously through them. This is disastrous for love because a woman can then become obsessively attached to them as a substitute for the love of man. Maturity in age brings a certain worldly wisdom but, sadly, not often in the areas of life so desperately needed. The wisdom of love is vitally important in this world, particularly for children today who are so often contaminated by exposure to pornography before they reach puberty. Anyone who has cut off from love as a conscious act of defiance or fear has forfeited the opportunity to give something back to life and love.

Many men and women become comfortable being on their own, and the prospect of a partner who could upset their daily routine is dismissed as completely unacceptable. It may be convenient living like that, but there will be a void in the life that is sometimes registered as feelings of loneliness and despair. When a woman is truly vulnerable to love so that her very existence becomes an impulse of devotion to a man who later leaves her or dies, the feeling is often that she’ll never be able to love another with the same intensity and passion again. This happens even in younger women, who often question whether they will find love again in their entire lives.

It’s a beautiful sensation to be held by another body and to feel the nourishment of masculine strength or feminine mystery. The touch of the hand communicates more than the physical feeling in someone sensitive to their own inner nature. Love is not just made in the sexual act, but in everyday life through being receptive and psychically open to the ever-changing moment. Attraction and enjoyment of another’s company is pleasant and lovely in its own right and needn’t go any further, unless it does. It’s the being which is resonant to love, and a man who can truly love the female principle is able to see her innate beauty, regardless of the ageing process of the body.

Everybody is waiting for love, even though an individual may declare with conviction that there’s no desire for romance. This was demonstrated to me by a widowed lady in her eighties who came for a consultation to hear what I could tell her about her life. Amongst other things, I told the lady that love was in the air and that she should be open for romance with a new man. On hearing this she said, ‘That’s all very well but what I really like is a good roast dinner’! Anyway she discovered to her amazement, when a man entered her life some months later, that it’s never too late for love.

Masters and Men

Everybody on earth is waiting for the master. This is because only the master, or more specifically the master consciousness, has the power to shatter the dream of existence. The master comes from within; but for this sublime radiant power to externalise through the senses it must be affirmed through the living master in the outer world. In truth there’s only the master, which is the personification of God the most high. The master appears in male form, as befits the role of the teacher of truth. A woman with a comparable state of consciousness realises the truth as love and is rarely called upon to declare herself publicly.

The master is not exclusive and his function is to help anyone able to receive his teachings so as to be more real and liberated from the confines of ignorance and emotional negativity. There are many spiritual teachers but few masters on the earth at any one time. The teacher, by the way of things, prepares the individual for the master. The master differs from the spiritual teacher as a function in the spiritual process. The teacher serves those still attached to the world at a level where they can have time for reflection to analyse and discuss the truth. The words of the teacher reaffirm what is already known, but in a way that those receptive are able to reach a deeper place of consciousness.

The master is recognised by his knowledge, not only of what’s already known but what’s unknown which can be realised as original truth by those in his orbit. Whereas the teacher works in time, the master is the timeless power that confronts the self, leaving no choice in the individual but to die now to the ignorance of the past. Every true master introduces a unique aspect of the universal earth idea. Extraordinary beings in human history, such as Krishna, Buddha and Christ, represented the excellence of humanity expressed through their teachings. It’s the people who ultimately determine at any phase of evolutionary time who will be master as surrogate for the human family to impart the truth of his realisations.

The purpose of life is the gathering of mass. At the world octave this is the gathering of wealth and possessions to provide security and a sense of stability to offset the forces of existence. At the spiritual octave it’s the gathering of light or self-knowledge which determines someone’s depth of perception and sensitivity to love and truth. When a certain level of self-knowledge is reached, an individual gravitates into deeper space within the human psyche. The being, which is an aspect of the earth’s spirit, is energised by the radiance of a stellar object of incomparable mass and light. This is the star or constellation of a particular master behind the appearance of the sensory world. However, until it’s time, it’s not necessarily in an individual’s lights to enter the living master’s orbit; so they’re attracted to the teachings of dead masters, or perhaps one of the founders of the great religions where they can be served by the group lights of that segment of humanity.

Prior to the shift in consciousness and appearance of the master in the physical world, an individual undergoes a climacteric of inner transformation. This is a transitional state which is being directed from within so as to prepare the ground for the influx of the new consciousness. In my own experience this was extremely intense and disorienting, which had friends and family questioning my sanity due to eccentric behaviour kept just below the accepted level to contain the radical inner shift. Within a year of the change I had left home and my work to be with Barry Long, the Australian spiritual master who became the source of inspiration and focus of my life.

Everyone is influenced by the master, for the master is God – the one and only appearing as the many. The impersonal master is nature, where all are replenished by the restorative purity of mother earth. People seek out the beauty of nature and sometimes perceive the intrinsic intelligence which creates the precision and supreme artistry that exists between all living things. But as beautiful a reflection as nature is, it’s unable to penetrate the resistance in the matter of these bodies to its deepest centre. Only the unwavering light of the master consciousness is up to the task.

Within everybody is the master waiting to come forward to be realised as the living truth of this matter. Time is the distance which separates the union of this divine completion. When time is up or running out, the quickening begins towards rebirth as a being of higher consciousness. This is our destiny: to be our own star and in turn help the others home in this glorious life where wonders never cease.

Children of the Sun

Everything in existence originates from the Sun, the sire of life on earth. The rising sun symbolises, not only the dawning of each new day but the divine spark of inspiration which helps us to cope with the challenges of living. People always feel reassured, both psychologically and at a physical level, by the light and warmth of the solar power. Even those who live in parts of the world where there’s little sunshine are delighted, after the long dark winters, to be revitalised by the solar rays.

Nevertheless, the external sun is just a symbol of a more enduring inner sun, which is the light of our innate intelligence and being. It’s only in the dream of existence that the sun appears to move each day from the East to the West. The real sun never sets and is forever rising as the spiritual light of the world. At every level of existence the supreme integrity of life and truth is replicated, from the highest mountain to the microscopic realm of the atom. For life as we know it to exist there has to be a cosmic trigger to instigate the creative process. Starlight is the power within all matter, including our bodies. Each man and woman’s potential is to be that light as the sun of themselves.

The physical body represents reality and the immediacy of the present. The journey back to the sun is made, not in the objective universe but through entering the solar plexus, located just underneath the breast plate; this is the sun portal to cosmic inner space. Astral or star travel, when it happens naturally without intent, begins here as the vital being is freed for a while from attachment to the external apparatus of the body. This can happen in sleep, but it’s unusual to go beyond a prescribed level of the psyche. As more power of stillness is developed, the emotional energies of self gravitate back through the solar plexus into deep inner space, where the emotion is transformed and restored to the original state of purity. As this becomes a conscious practice, the point of perception gravitates ever closer towards the sun.

Ancient civilisations, such as the Aztecs and Incas, worshipped the Sun as an instinctual recognition of God the Most High, and sacrificed men and women in homage to the divine light in the sky. Today we replicate this practice through the sacrifice of our time and energy to the modern idol of the world – the computer and its reactivated power source: electricity. The Sun as the creator of life on earth is an aspect of God; but the perspective of those ancient times limited the vision of the vastness and glory of Divine Being. Beyond the solar system is the ultimate God, the Lord of Existence. Beyond this is the absolute God, which defies description – and even then, possibly opens up to a deeper profundity of God’s Being. Thus does God forever remain a mystery, always beyond that which has been realised.

I often mention the value of gazing at the night sky and the celestial objects, which become significant on the journey back through inner space. When looking at the heavens or the beauty of nature, it’s always beneficial to put the attention on the solar plexus. This induces a connection in consciousness, which then becomes attuned to a state of equilibrium synonymous with the stillness and silence of cosmic space. It’s the power of the sun that determines the climactic change to the life, which is the call of the spirit that’s it time to come home. The divine connection can happen at any time, perhaps in the midst of great emotional upheaval; but when it shines through an individual’s psyche, the focus and direction of the life is irrevocably changed.

The inner sun is the reality or guiding light that endeavours to influence the events and circumstances in everyone’s living life. What limits our perception of the eternal mystery is the corruption of the world, which has smeared our window to the profundity of inner space. This has an effect which manifests in either of two ways. For some the problems appear insurmountable, both in the personal life and in the world at large. Other than alcohol or narcotics to deaden the pain, the only palliative seems to be the hope that someone or something will be effective in removing the injustice and poverty of the human condition. However, for others who have reached a climacteric in their evolutionary journey there’s only one way to go – back to the solar source where it all began. We are all children of the sun.

Prove It

It’s impossible to prove to the satisfaction of the mind anything that’s real. This is because the mind can only relate to forms of life which have externalised in the objective world. The mind is an effect of time and consequently must reflect on the memory impressions of the past to reaffirm what it knows in the present. This works reasonably well in the everyday life in dealing with the practicalities of living. But when the mind looks for answers in the inner realm it objectifies the formless life into concepts and misleading theories, which confuse and distort the simplicity of love and truth. It wants proof of something which is indefinable and has no tangible attributes that can be named. To the mind the truth behind existence is unknowable and appears as nothing.

The spiritual perspective is stillness, which is the absence of wanting to know. This is the direct knowledge of life intuited through the purity of inner space. Spiritual perspective is the three hundred and sixty degree perception of life without a positional bias to interrupt what is. Although unable to be proved in the objective sense, the spiritual perspective of an individual can be recognised through self-knowledge as the simplicity of original truth.
