The power of love. I thought about that in fellowship with my Heart this morning. So simple yet totally transformative in ways that set in motion multiplicities of complexities.
But that’s only because of Ego. Because we think we have to have some better or best explanation than others. Because a religion, philosophy, country, or family or whatever has to be right. It doesn’t.
So when I write this article, I want you to know that I am neither endorsing any religion or philosophy, nor am I repudiating any. These are not my intent. I am sharing what I received from my Heart.
Because of a comment I saw, I was thinking about being emptied of Ego-self in order to experience a full life. I kept thinking of a verse from the Bible, and I had to look it up and consider it for a few minutes. This is what I gleaned.
Genesis 1:1, 2 says, “In the beginning god created the heaven and the earth and the earth was without form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep and the spirit of god moved on the face of the waters.” This is some ancient literature, and it is shrouded in beauty.
However, before exploring that I want to link up a verse from John the apostle’s writing in John 1:1–3: “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with god, and the word was god. The same was in the beginning with god. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.” Another piece of ancient literature, clearly an allusion to the Genesis verse.
If you do not know the work of Mike Dooley, I think you would be blessed to buy some of his books and read them or listen to them or consume them in any way you can. The basic premise of his work is that thoughts become things. And this is exactly what the series of verses above says.
That initial creation — the calling forth of something from the energy to thought, word — began as chaos, “without form and void.” Spirit, pure Energy, created this way. I think it happened this way to show love.
How? The word is not even mentioned in those verses. It is the foundation, though, of it all. That pure Energy, that Great Spirit, “moved.” That word means hovered or brooded over, with the implication of a mother bird that watches and protects and waits until the chicks are hatched; thus, the implication of wings of the mother bird being fluttered lovingly over all that is to be birthed. The basis of all this that we see around us, the whole Universe, is this Love. The Spirit created from love.
And the first manifestation of this Love: light. Enlightenment. Light out of chaos — darkness and formlessness. The creative transformation of Spirit Energy came form a thought of love to transform the unorganized darkness of chaos into light. This is magical; it is beyond us.
Or is it? No, it is not. Sprit made sure that all of creation knows this love. How? Spirit imbued that energy in each of us, in all of creation. And I have called our piece of Sprit Heart.
Perhaps it is ironic, perhaps not, but we arrive in this scene with Ego-energy, a self-centered operating system that helps us survive and get established here. It is akin to the darkness of that primordial chaos — formless and darkness. Why? Because we are here in this mass of humanity with no true thought of connections with the Other or the Universe. It is the chaos of our mind-soul-body complex.
When we recognize Heart within, though, we receive that mothering flutter of wings of love of Heart, and light illuminates chaos. We discover Heart and personal truth and live it. Enlightenment doesn’t mean instant beauty; in fact, it means a process of painfully reordering the chaos of our Ego-constructed lives into a meaningful existence.
But we get to do that while experiencing fellowship with our own Heart, that Sprit of creation, light, and love in us. What are we if we have this in us? Yeah, that’s what we are. Powerful co-creators who don’t have to figure it all out. Just live in love, doing those things that fill us with that love, that are significant to us, that allow us to feel love and to share love.
Blessings of love and peace this evening!
