Higher Love and the Mastery of the World

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

‘May your noses always be cold and wet’.

Love motivates me. I study myself constantly and the same goes for studying other people. I rely heavily on vibrations when determining people’s motivations and whether they can fit into my little world. In the eleven years I have been in Europe I’ve had less than a dozen visits from people. I never go out looking for companionship or conversation. I often have nothing to say to people because their minds are either made up or they don’t care anyway.

Love is a vibration. I think of it as cosmic vitriol, or the universal solvent because Love reduces everything to itself. It motivated creation (if one can say that and if it wasn’t random-grin) and it maintains creation. It also destroys creation out of Love. Death, for instance, exists for people trapped in the briar patch of attachments and ignorance. It’s Nature’s way of saying you’ve gone as far as you can this time around. Life’s only about one thing and death is the answer to it when you fail. As important as this one thing is, it is the very rare individual who takes it seriously.

Things that I am going to say today should be glaringly obvious. I would assume, as far as the readers here go, that these are things we take for granted and would give a reflexive “yes” if questioned about them but... we seldom put them into practice, because of ingrained behavior patterns. This is why governments and societies seek to program us. Most of the world is running around on auto-pilot and going in circles. That is the treadmill of redundancy that defines the ordinary human life. As a child and for a time as a youth we have a certain freedom and latitude in our thoughts and feelings. All too soon, this begins to close up, until be are just going through the motions. We think we are acting freely and expressing ourselves the same as well ...but mostly not; mostly not.

Love motivates me because it is fluid. It’s like water on a rock. Think of the rock as your behavior patterns and not just from this life. Some ingrained behavior patterns are deeply set. They can be worn away over a long period by the wash and drip of the waters of love, or they can be hot-housed in their trend to disappearance, by certain determined and consistent activities and focus of the mind. Everyone is being acted on by the world and what responds within them. Few are consciously engaged in it. Our awareness of our state of mind and the meaning of events and conditions is very important. We don’t think about awareness, save for the times when circumstances demand it. If we did, we’d be connected to the force that materializes everything we encounter and verifies our reactions and conclusions about meaning.

People don’t explore the nature of love very often. They mostly just experience it; should it happen to come along. People define Love as something it is not, mistaking it for desire and conditions of attachment when it is the primary liberating force. If people were to study Love, they would find that it is conscious of itself. I’m speaking of real love, not what passes for it in the field of contemporary attractions, in a time of darkness. It is the perversion of this force that accounts for all that is wrong in these days. That is why there is so much fear because of the absence of real love. They displace each other- Love and fear-, and cannot occupy the same space at the same time.

Love, like anything, increases in power and presence by the practice of it. Just as no water comes from an outdoor well, when you first start pumping, Love does not suddenly appear when you (metaphorically) snap your fingers. Just as with an outdoor well, when the water first comes it is often dirty and discolored. After a time it runs clean and with greater force and you can take your hand off the pump and the water continues to run. There is a great deal of literal truth in all of this.

We’ve heard all the sayings; “Love is all you need”, “God is Love”, “Love rules all”. Well, I don’t have to list the many similar sayings that have been around since we’ve been around. Yet... we don’t routinely speak and act in the awareness of this. The job of the world is to take our eyes off of it. The world is actually employed in certain strategies to our detriment. This is something else we’re not generally aware of and should be, because then we could look out for it.

I knew that I was going to be somewhat successful at certain things because Love motivates me. Love impacts and impresses on life and you can see the truth of that in the lives of any number of people who have passed through here and whom love motivated. Love has a lasting impact on conditions, without and within. It is somewhat overwhelmed in these times, or appears to be but... appearances are deceiving. Love can be very surreptitious and unpredictably insistent. Everything that goes counter to Love, makes itself vulnerable to the power of Love by its actions.

Love is an investment bank and for those whom Love motivates and inspires, the investment grows. It can take considerable time for Love to materialize, because Love has to set the stage and also test the carrier. It has to modify and shape the carrier because Love doesn’t accept bad representatives. Love has to reduce or eliminate self interest and a host of qualities that diminish and compromise it.

Love is the greatest power on Earth. There is no greater. It holds and motivates the planets in their courses so that the will of Love can be fulfilled. Love speaks to us in music and when it is not speaking to us in music, the times are dark, as they are now. Love is the dawn that rises upon the darkness and Love is rising. As I said, Love is conscious and knows of its own existence. It has an agenda and it weaves every other agenda together to demonstrate itself. Love is the essential heroism, because it does not think of itself and since it cannot die, it is fearless. I could mention that fear smells to animals like anger. There are many interesting relationships and coincidences in life. We should be more watchful and inquiring.

When you inquire of Love, love speaks to you at your level through experience and often through the words of others. Love can appear in people and be the voice of the divine and you look a moment later and it’s just what’s his name again. I’ve had this happen and I am sure some of you have as well. Love is the key to a magical land that exists, within the dimensions of this one, but is unseen without the eyes of Love. Love grows with application. It grows and grows and grows and it consumes, turning the bearer into itself. We should know these things and we do but there is a disconnect, a cognitive dissonance that intrudes between Love and ourselves. Open your eyes. Well, the eyes open automatically as the heart does. Love knocks on the door of the heart all day long and presents situations in life for Love to respond and grow into. This all goes on in the magic land of Love when we inhabit it. Otherwise we live in a world of fear and confusion. Love will make you suffer from its absence so that you will seek it.

Love takes everything we have and anyone not willing to make this sacrifice will not get love. They will get a simulation, which reflects their level of self interest. Love takes everything, because Love is the liberating power and you cannot be half free or somewhat free. That is the measurement by which you are bound by the things that deny Love expression in you.

When Love takes possession of you, or has worn you down to where you cannot resist, Love shines from your countenance and it veils itself too, because Love is a master of disguise as it goes about in its work. It has to be because there are many who would kill love, though Love cannot die. Those who imagine they have killed Love, have done no more than to water the Earth with their retribution. That is why the highest act of Love is sacrifice. It sacrifices itself over and over again on in the hopes that you will realize its presence and power. Love is always looking for a ride but we’ve got our car filled with other passengers. Love rides shotgun.

All these things should be evident, plain as day, but they are not. Take a walk through the world and observe the absence of Love. Love is around but it is concealed from the sight of those who will not allow it to possess them because of fear. Ironically, the only time you need to fear is when Love isn’t present. Next time you run into Love- and you will, invite Love along and see what happens.

Wonderful post, thought provoking. I'm afraid though that I have never understood what love is. Is it acceptance? That always seems the closest to what people mean when they speak of love. Or is it a sense of responsibility? I just don't get it. When I look at my kids I'm overwhelmed with the need/desire to see they are clothed, fed, listened to and sent into the world with the sense that they are part of something bigger than themselves. Is that love? It has always been a confusing word for me.

Zoner said...

Geez, Les, this is exactly what I needed to hear today, and the way you lay it all out there makes so much sense and resonates so strongly that all I can do is offer my thanks while contemplating what can be done to invite this master of disguise to reveal what is true here. Certainly there needs to be a distinction made between the love that comes in passionate form and the variety that needs no echo returned - no dividend paid to the one employing it, but that line is obscured I think. A couple of those lines were like daggers straight into my heart. I don't know how you do it....

So, are we to be givers or receivers? Can one posses love or does one just surrender and become possessed? It certainly is an elusive thing, and I feel quite foolish for thinking that I had the real thing. So many things wear that label or will act as substitute.

wv; antent - the opposite of intent, where one focuses outward in their actions rather than in, thus better employing this thing called love.

Visible said...

Well, the key to all of that is that 'love is conscious' and we've all heard that 'love will find a way'. Trusting love to have the answers means there are no questions that will not be resolved unless we interfere.

Being partnerships rather than incorporated organizations, they do not have to report to stockholders. And their profits were as secret as they were immense. How the bankers made their millions and their billions I do not know, because those little secrets never become public – even before a Senate investigatory body."

Vis, you have over time written powerful, inspiring, ranting words that speak to Hearts across time and space.
These words today have got to be the most beautiful. Like a singing crystal cup, I am transported to the 'magical land', where all possibilities exist.

There is something I want to do, but keep thinking I can't, I didn't have enough love to do it or whatever. But that was just me keeping the door locked for whatever reason.
The key just appeared and now the door is open and I feel the Love that will allow me to do this, but I must take that Love and allow it to make me brave as well. There are forces that do not want me to go forward because of their own fears, but these don't have to be mine if I don't let them, if I allow Love to carry me away and I surrender.

And so it is with all of life that is worth living.

Blessings to you Visible.

What is Love?

katz said...

Love, is all.


that is what Jesus said. Do unto others, as you would have them do, unto you. Love thy neighbor, as thyself. I speak in St Jamesian.

so, in love for the people of the USA, and in love for the public good, it is necessary to name names, and specific crimes, in public, if not on an arrest warrant.

we have laws. we just have no enforcement bc the fox is running the attorney general's office.

but, good loving Americans who want the best for this nation, and for their children, need to start getting serious about exposing the sins, and then bringing them to trial.

if you love your children, you will insure their future is better than yours.

Lady of the Woods said...

Love needs a Palatial Heart to reside in. We must give it a Garden in which to reside. Love is a 'constant graceful presence', it is not emotional, but can be. It is a feeling of strength from the Heart. It is ever present. It cares for everyone at all times, and it feels great compassion and empathy at all times for every living thing around them. It does not come and go with winds or moods. One must accept its presence. Love is an intelligence that chooses where it can visit and how long it will stay. If Love is invited to stay, is wanted within the true heart of the visited one, Love will stay. As long as it is a desired guest, given proper hostessing, a clean environment, and a genuine timeless invitation, Love will stay.
If love arrives yet is unwanted in the heart and pushed away, because the visited one is fearful of that intensity and power, Love will leave, because yes Love has a will of its own and will direct your life, cause you to feel great care in such intensity as to be overwhelming for some, and doesn't allow the one it resides in to hurt others because Love comes with a consciousness built in. And that goes against the 'ways' of the ego of such as those in military, corporations love will leave...because it is incompatible to such ethics, and cannot live in such a toxic one who has chosen to close their feeling centers down, closed the heart, exert a lower will.
Love needs a palatial heart to reside in, and feelings to flow through to live.

"Higher Love and the Mastery of the World"

Beautifully and wisely expressed.

To name a thing, quantitatively and qualitatively, is to evoke it.

To do so carefully, a bit at a time, is to invoke it.

Love is present in the one who knows her, and also, always, everywhere at once.

Ouzel said...

How very beautiful an exposition on Love. Many thanks, LV.

So many aspects to think about, so much self-examination to carry out, and so many settings to act in. This post is a well that will never go dry.

I'm amazed. Perhaps not really, for this is inspired.

I'm reminded of a poem "O Love, that wilt not let me go."

You bring out the insidiousness of Love, which will, in the end, not let us go, until we let it in, for that is the goal and journey's end.

Again, thanks, and thanks to others for their responses.

Love to all.

PS - Synchronicity

I forgot to add that earlier today I had tried to describe Love (in a political context) to my mailing list, and also sent them this quotation from Martin Luther King Jr.

"Why should we ever love our enemies? The first reason is obvious. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction."

Not that I think we should describe any as "enemies", for that would defeat the whole enterprise. But I think MLK Jr was saying this in a context where there was already a false Us vs Them mindset.

My deepfelt thanks for posting this today. Having read your work over the years this post spoke to me at a metaphysical level today. I'm in the early stages of "True" Love with a wonderful women and this hit home. Love is the power we need to overcome so many things in this day and age plus it makes life easier to deal with with so much evil in places. Thank you so much for expressing this fact to many of us over the years.
You have been blessed with so much wisdom and can express it so well.

Greetings Les,

ahhh... this is precisely what wonders through my chaotic mind at all times while I'm awake. It knocks, incessantly, like a small mute child locked in the closet, until I exhaust my daily rituals of blame and fear and doubt and frustration, and notice I've left 'something' unattended- that small tapping- the never-ending request of The Holy Spirit, which I've managed to lock in the closet of "later-when-all-this-stops". What a shame, all this wasted energy, time. How does it happen that I find time to blame and rage through every evil that I see, but can't muster the peace of knowing, remembering, realizing again, Who It Is Whom Lives In Me?

Les, This was your best post yet, ever. Love is just there standing naked, showing humility, and it must be accepted as such.

The winners will be those who have circumcised their hearts, and cut away the hardness.

Wasn't it refreshing to stop pointing the accusing finger and open up the palm of the hand. You stopped cursing to receive this blessing.

Thanks for this. Life is vindicated, there has been so much serendipity in my life these past few days, but nothing can compare to the love welling within me right now.

Yes love. But how does love, which is the one and only eternal entity, factor into our planet which viewed from outside is nothing but a few billion people floating on a piece of solar driftwood through time and space.

The leading scientists of today have failed to explain the infinite universe in practical terms. They have agreed it is magic.

Magic being phenomina which cannot be explained with present physical knowledge.

Is magic love?

Is love magic?

How insignificant our three score and ten on earth can seem when the infinite universe and infinite time are considered.

Visible said...

I have no intention of stopping pointing the finger. I don't operate under the aegis of anothers perspective. Let those who believe as they do follow their own dictates because that is likely where it applies. Subjective projections do not necessarily have applications in anothers field of endeavor. Telling me ten thousand times will have no effect. If the inner voice wants such a transition it will let me know.

Vis, All,
For me, love is striving to see the face of God in every person I see.

Jesus is the personification of love and, as He pointed out "When you see me, you see He that sent me."

How does one destroy one's enemies? By making friends of them. Easier said than done. From what I have read, this was Abraham Lincoln's philosophy; he got whacked by the banksters and they have had their way with America (and now almost the entire world since).

So while it is almost impossible for me to love the banksters I can see that they are playing the role assigned them by Father Creator and this keeps me at least from hating them; my attitude towards them is more akin to grieving because I know they are filling the cup that they themselves will drink.

I think, but don't know for sure, that this is what Jesus meant when He said "For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” I think Jesus was teaching that obedience to and focusing on love was greater than obedience to and focusing on law (knowing that the banksters write the laws to suit themselves).

So as long as I focus on Jesus, and seek the face of God in all those I meet, and read about, I find that my burden is light.

However, I still yearn for righteous justice... but must remain content knowing that Father Creator will implement perfectly righteous justice.

Vajrasattva said...

Love allows love to ask, ‘what is love without love?’ To answer the question, love is divided within love.
There once was a son that was loved by his father and who in turn was loved by his son. The son had unlimited capacity for imagination and had his father’s support in everything he did. One day the son played a game imagining what life would be like without his father. Immediately the son was alone in a windswept desert with his home nowhere to be seen.

The son soon experienced a feeling he had never known: he was hungry. Searching for food he found nothing but dust, and his hunger became a gnawing fear. The son now gave thought to what had before seemed impossible, but now he could not ignore. In this desert of loneliness and scarcity he could die.

Desperately the son looked into the horizon, and there a city appeared. Going to the city he found a people that were uncaring of his hunger. A man took him in to feed his hogs and offered their loft as a bed. Despite his labor the son was not paid and the only food he ate was the hog’s leftovers.

The son grew despondent but could not remember a time when he was not in this miserable condition. He vaguely remembered a face that had no bearing to the world as he saw it. This face was like a sun compared to the grayness of life in this country. He finally remembered the name of that shining light.

The son came to tears when he fully recalled where he had come from, and where he was now. He cried out “Father, forgive me. I have forsaken your love and am no longer worthy of it. I do not know how I came to be here but only wish to be with you now.” Immediately the son was awakened by his father, for it had been nothing but a dream.

Child, because you can forget love it does not come from you. Because you can remember love it must always have been in you. Remember, you have been given what you asked for.

hehehe. les, you go on pointing fingers when you feel the need. i like who you are because you are being who you are. why change it? if at some time, someone doesnt like it, they are as free to travel somewhere else as they are free to be a part of your experience. right? you just keep on being you. i never could quite understand how come people so often feel a need to convince others to be different, when it could very well be that that they are doing it all wrong by someone elses standards. back to my little 6x6x5 greenhut. its good for my mind. four more weeks, it will be good for my tummy :))

Hot on the heels of their discovery of the God particle scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have detected the long surmised Love Particle. They will be releaseing details to the public as soon as they have found a way to turn it into a weapon, efforts to which have so far elluded them. Though this particle is one of the great shape shifters, changing appearances on the mere observation of it, it is believed in it's natural state to look like this. :-)

When putting words to love, I have a bit of the cringe/keep it pure/self put down aspect. that sells love short, entails insufficient trust, gives the negatives a free'r ride than they deserve. Love deserves respect and care, but also a clean break. You're words here, whilst considerate, are obviously are under none of these delusions or, conditions. That's quite an achievement IMO

"Yes"! and "Yay"!

Visible, nice post, if I understand it and may (humbly); express, LOVE, as the essence of life. Your water analogy was most appropriate. Fire (passion) will consume all w/o the water of love. Air is required to both fuel fire and mobilize water. Earth is there to ground the work of the Master. It couldn't be, without all 4 essences. Trouble is, the labels have been hijacked by thems that control education, media, history, entertainment, (science?), etc. We need a new label or tag to express the real LOVE. Thanks for your blogs.

You have shown me that Love is the only element they furiously hide from the Periodic table. Science, magic (sometimes the same), and rare element human sacrificial Love dolls have proven that Love is "known" to be the genesis of everything, A to Z... while resting sumwhere called the Free spot in the center of the, “Bingo!” card. Goodness rests in the middle (mind), along with generosity and humbleness, and in the Center (heart) lays the truth and the compass of discernment.

When I arrived here I wasn't confused on who was perpetrating the crimes. I was angry they were flaunting it and humans are still falling in line by the train loads and they aren't wearing skull caps for photo ops like they did in the 40's. Thanks for the quiet. I can read and comment here now and then go do my thang all day long with a smile on my face and a song in my heart, no matter the news.

Happiness is a byproduct of living a good, well-ordered life. Living a good life includes adherence to the natural law and, as far as it is known, the divine law. Like it or lump it, this means using the marital union for the procreation of children without any attempts to frustrate this process.

Very few moderns do this. All the other joys of life -- physical, intellectual, moral, etc. -- are merely icing on the cake and are not meant to be the cake itself. Moderns are monumentally disordered and tend to follow their passions rather than reason.

That is what this amazing time is about: Purging the filth from the system and getting back to the right road. Godspeed :)

Thanks LV, both for your understanding and your ability to express so others understand. A rare gift.

IMHO Love is the most powerful force in the cosmos. It is also the most effective force against TPTB. If you play by their rules, you lose; If you break their rules, you lose. Love, however, is outside their paradigm. They don't understand it and can't handle it. It is like anti-matter to them and their machinations. It's what the Christ meant by "love thine enemy". That being said, one can try to love all others and still recognize the need for protection from those who don't practice the same. We feed their evil when we do anything but love, so the trick is to be cautious, aware, and prepared, all from a standpoint of love.

Love is not a Thing
Love is not a Quantity

Keep up the great work, Les.

i’ve been back a billion years
and up around the bend
i was there when it all began
and also at the end

i’ve been trying a million faces
till i find one that fits
i’ve been looking out thru these eyes
to where eternity sits

and haven't i heard a thousand names
shooting thru space my way
hasn't it been a hundred ages
not one of thems yet to say

i am beyond all your words
and all your eyes can see
no thought can reach no hand can touch
what i might really be

and this :

'Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,
Look out on a summer's day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills,
Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colors on the snowy linen land.

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.

Starry, starry night.
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze,
Swirling clouds in violet haze,
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue.
Colors changing hue, morning fields of amber grain,
Weathered faces lined in pain,
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.

For they could not love you,
But still your love was true.
And when no hope was left in sight
On that starry, starry night,
You took your life, as lovers often do.
But I could have told you, Vincent,
This world was never meant for one
As beautiful as you.

Starry, starry night.
Portraits hung in empty halls,
Frameless heads on nameless walls,
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget.
Like the strangers that you've met,
The ragged men in ragged clothes,
The silver thorn of bloody rose,
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.

Now I think I know what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they're not listening still.
Perhaps they never will...

Every action I take is a meditation on it. My studies bring me into its most transcendent aspects,
and I can only hope that it will continue to see me as worthy of its presence.

When I think of love in its purest form (which is limitless), I see that which is unconditional; it knows everything that you are and it effortlessly accepts all that you are at all times. And (as Visible said) it turns everything into itself eventually. When I think of the way unconditional love in its purest form expresses itself in a human being, I see those who realize that they are only channels for it. It cannot be possessed or owned for it cannot be confined; it knows no boundaries or limits. You are merely a conduit for its energy. You, with no conscious effort on your part, become servant to it at all times.

Love in its purest forms, gives us the strength to fearlessly defend each other from all injustices, to always speak the truth, to seek that which is best not for ourselves, but for our brothers. We're finally able to let go of all fear and all boundaries and become one with the whole. We're brought to a place where our view is expanded and, if love deems us worthy, we get a brief glimpse of who we really are; the Single, the One, the I Am.

Hey Priestess, here is something form Eric Fromm for you to mull over in regard to your feeble attempts at dictating the Vis.

"If other people do not understand our behavior—so what? Their request that we must only do what they understand is an attempt to dictate to us. If this is being "asocial" or "irrational" in their eyes, so be it. Mostly they resent our freedom and our courage to be ourselves. We owe nobody an explanation or an accounting, as long as our acts do not hurt or infringe on them. How many lives have been ruined by this need to "explain," which usually implies that the explanation be "understood," i.e. approved. Let your deeds be judged, and from your deeds, your real intentions, but know that a free person owes an explanation only to himself—to his reason and his conscience—and to the few who may have a justified claim for explanation."
— Erich Fromm (The Art of Being)

All blessings to you Visible,
such a high example of how one is to be themselves.

I have been talking to my family and we would love the opportunity of going to the Kumbh Mela.

I see this as a once in 20,000+ life time experience and would be most humbled and great-full if we were able to join you and your friends.

If this is possible, how do I go about the next step?

With love, Steve.

Why is it that I cry every time that I hear "Vincent"?

I honestly don't know... it touches something inside of me, somewhere.

So much gratitude for being allowed to find Love here ... time after time again ;)

It is my first time posting here but I have been around for awhile...

Today's writing by Les so struck me that I feel compelled to contribute here...

What Les has written about is exactly what I have discovered for myself and very recently...

Love is the common thread that binds us all to the higher consciousness, call it God or creator or what you will... Everything in the Universe wants, needs love, and human beings need to love and be loved, it is an absolute...

The world beats human beings down everyday with the dogma from the existing hierarchy (the present twisted power paradigm), which feeds on hate, fear and division but it cannot last...

When people realize they have the power to create a new paradigm, one built on goodness and caring,and that love, true Universal love of all things and all beings, it will be the most important transformation in human history.

Simply put, love is the answer...

You only have to open your heart to feel the need not only to give it but also to receive it.

From another place that I post:

"...Bush did his beast to try and get her to toe the line...
(emphasis added)"

I laughed when I read this.

In spite of many things, yes, to spite those many things-- I am in a very happy mood this morning.

Come with me, comrades! We shall be the Navy Seal Team Death Squad of Happiness and Laughter. Be ready to unleash explosive Laughter! Commit the anarchistic mayhem of Comedy! Let a supersonic shock wave of Happiness detonate from your core heart center synapse-to-all. Nothing shall stand before us!! All shall writhe with laughter and damp drawers, convulsing in tasered-like helpless, breathless mirth.

Make the Universe a better place. Make someone laugh today. Give someone an unexpected compliment today. Call someone who may have forgotten... and tell them that you care about them.

Lock and load.

the Dr Who episode last year "Vincent" had me bawling like a baby which I only managed to subdue on the third viewing. we could just as well do an episode like that with VIS I reckon. take him forward 200 years to the LV museum of contemporary sanity.
still, there's the desire or need for overt recognition that also invites caution.

An excellent article. When I was on a recent San Pedro journey I was shown that Love is the 'glue' that holds the universe together, it is the engine house of life. Our interpretation of this love as suggested in the article runs deeper than our shallow worldly view of it. Love is a power and a force.

Hello Les,

To quote myself by siting something I wrote many years ago:

Love, love, love and leave the details to God.

Kindest regards,

"Higher Love and the Mastery of the World."

Amazing darshan of Hanumanji: This happened in Kalika Mata temple in Ratlam, M.P., last month.

Pictures tell the true story. The Saint was telling the story of Ramayana and “Hanumanji” appeared in the form of langur!! The langur first went and sat near the singers and listened to the kirtan, held the mic of the mahantji, got blessed by him, then “blessed” the saints and then sat in front of Shri Ramji’s photo and took some of the flowers (note similar position to Shri Hanumanji in the framed picture) and left quietly.

wv: hooks (yes, I'm hooked!)
