Yesterday I posted a poem I wrote about the sun equating to love … later in the day I “found” the website for Ram Dass and read one of his recent postings. (With synchronicity, do you really just “find” anything!)
He spoke on unconditional love and how it feels, going on to say, “This love is like sunshine, a natural force, a completion of what is, a bliss that permeates every particle of existence.”
I had to giggle to myself, I think of the sun as the same love as I felt when I have seen and walked into The Light. If you ever get the chance to see the The Light (and please do not try the near death route on purpose) through a past life regression, you will understand and relate to every word I say. It is love, oozing and shining all over and through your whole being.
Life is a whole lot more fun when you see others so cool like Ram Dass writing the sames things. For him, the sun baths us in its sunshine much the same way you can be bathed in someone else’s unconditional love.
Excerpt from Be Love Now by Ram Dass:
“Imagine feeling more love from someone than you have ever known. You’re being loved even more than your mother loved you when you were an infant, more than you were ever loved by your father, your child, or your most intimate lover—anyone. This lover doesn’t need anything from you, isn’t looking for personal gratification, and only wants your complete fulfillment.
You are loved just for being who you are, just for existing. You don’t have to do anything to earn it. Your shortcomings, your lack of self-esteem, physical perfection, or social and economic success— none of that matters. No one can take this love away from you, and it will always be here.
Imagine that being in this love is like relaxing endlessly into a warm bath that surrounds and supports your every movement, so that every thought and feeling is permeated by it. You feel as though you are dissolving into love.
This love is actually part of you; it is always flowing through you. It’s like the subatomic texture of the universe, the dark matter that connects everything. When you tune in to that flow, you will feel it in your own heart—not your physical heart or your emotional heart, but your spiritual heart, the place you point to in your chest when you say, “I am.”
This is your deeper heart, your intuitive heart. It is the place where the higher mind, pure awareness, the subtler emotions, and your soul identity all come together and you connect to the universe, where presence and love are.
Unconditional love really exists in each of us. It is part of our deep inner being. It is not so much an active emotion as a state of being. It’s not “I love you” for this or that reason, not “I love you if you love me.” It’s love for no reason, love without an object. It’s just sitting in love, a love that incorporates the chair and the room and permeates everything around. The thinking mind is extinguished in love.”
In the meantime, I have added his new book to my personal “Books To Read” list.
