Temple of Love IV
"The block against love is the foundation stone of patriarchy." - Richard Gardner (Evolution Through The Tarot).
“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” - Dalai Lama.
“As you live deeper in the heart, the mirror gets clearer and cleaner.” - Rumi.
“Learned, dense patterns of energy are circulating. They are preventing our hearts from opening fully and truly loving each other.” - Jaymur.
“My whole teaching consists of two words, meditation and love. Meditate so that you can feel immense silence, and love so that your life can become a song, a dance, a celebration. You will have to move between the two, and if you can move easily, if you can move without any effort, you have learned the greatest thing in life.” – Osho (Come, Come, Yet Again Come).
“Nobody can teach you love. Love you have to find yourself, within your being, by raising your consciousness to higher levels. And when love comes, there is no question of responsibility. You do things because you enjoy doing them for the person you love. You are not obliging the person, you are not even wanting anything in return, not even gratitude. On the contrary, you are grateful that the person has allowed you to do something for him. It was your joy, sheer joy. Love knows nothing of responsibility. It does many things, it is very creative; it shares all that it has, but it is not a responsibility, remember. Responsibility is an ugly word in comparison to love. Love is natural. Responsibility is created by the cunning priests, politicians who want to dominate you in the name of God, in the name of the nation, in the name of family, in the name of religion - any fiction will do. But they don't talk about love. On the contrary, they are all against love, because love is unable to be controlled by them. A man of love acts out of his own heart, not according to any moral code. A man of love will not join the army because it is his responsibility to fight for his nation. A man of love will say there are no nations, and there is no question of any fight.” – Osho (Sat Chit Anand).
“If we love everyone as a mother loves her dearest child there will be no basis for any problems to arise because our mind will always be at peace. Love is the real inner protection against suffering.” - Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (Transform Your Life).
"We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep on watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it." – John Lennon.
“In the time and Era of Love any ventures associated with, born from or with the view of creating love will manifest quicker than any other forms of ventures. This is something to keep within your awareness when making decisions, embarking of new projects or new areas of your reality.” - Archangel Sandalphon (channelled through Natalie Glasson, ‘Animal Consciousness Awakening in Service for Ascension,’ 9 April 2014, www.omna.org).

You are the perfect heart of God I Am. You are the whole of Love, packaged now in the heart of the human being. But oh, dear ones, your heart contains the timeless realms and endless spheres of countless dimensions of life coming to you to be loved, for you are the heart of wholeness, the heart of God I Am.
Please receive the remembrance of your perfection in Me right now. Reach to Me and reclaim it instantly. For it is the center of these changes that are upon you now. Perfect life is alive in you and perfect Love is your holy name. The heart of God remembers itself in you, in all its fullness, if you will receive it.
Beloved One, you must take your life from Me. Only thus can you remember who you are and claim your freedom. Only when you feel Me as the truth of your joyous heart can you understand that you give to Me as much as I give to you. You cannot love Me and show Me this gift if you do not accept the truth of your being - that the perfect Love of God I Am knows itself as you and the circle of Love that we share together is critical to the continuance of life and the unfolding of the omni-verse in limitless ways of glory and endless possibilities of Love.
Just as a magnet draws metal filings, so shall this heart we are together draw hearts effortlessly into this entraining field of the magnetic, dynamic presence of living Love that becomes strong enough to reverse the tide of anti-Love, of ego and of the dream of awakening through time which in itself is a fallacy, for the awakening, the opening, the shift to the heart is Now. Once it is felt, a felt experience, it is done. For it is ever and always present, ever and always pulsing life and shining Love in that eternal and ever-present dance of co-creation.

You live in a world of movement and change. It is natural to experience love as something you give and receive; it moves between you. Yet you also are love. There is a stillness at the heart of your being that is the love that you are. You can be this stillness and in doing so, relieve yourself of a kind of work you may have unconsciously committed yourself to.
Many of you intend love as a recompense for your perceived failings. We, the guides and beings of light who love to help you, do not see these failings. For us, you are simply beautiful. But this may not yet be wholly your own perception of yourself and to the extent that it isn't, you recompense an imagined lack with extra activity. You will yourself to be more loving. This, you may have noticed, is difficult to do! Your own will and love are a little like oil and water; they don't mix easily. Love relaxes, will braces.
Let go of the notion that you are lacking in love, whether in giving or receiving. This is a thicket of illusion. Imagine anew the tale of Sleeping Beauty. In this version you are both the princess and the prince; they meet in you. Long ago some slight brought trouble to you; your parents (an earlier stage of yourself) wanted to reject the bad fairy (whatever it was within you that you feared) and in that rejection stored up revenge, for the darkness in each being is not to be feared, but loved.
One day as you worked that revenge came and you fell into a deep sleep, a loss of consciousness. But an aspect of yourself, the prince, stayed free to find you and bring you again to yourself. The prince believes he must hack through the thickets of illusion, the brambles that catch and snag, telling him he is insufficient, that he must try harder. But you know the way of brambles with their backward-facing thorns. Ease back, go gently, and you unhook yourself. Then you come to the heart of the forest, to the kiss that awakens. Prince and princess are united, the striving is done, the sleep is over. They are are the same being, who was once polarised into striving and sleeping. The traditional ending '...and they lived happily ever after,' now becomes the state of 'being love,' fully conscious and free of struggle.
