I have written about love many times over the last 25 years and was told 35 years ago that if we, as a race, did not learn about love, it would be the end of us. One of the first things I wrote in my book The Marriage of Souls was: Our pure beings need pure love, deserve pure love, live on pure love. My commitment to life and my Sanctuary here in Brazil is about pure beings sharing pure love. The pure Light of pure being, perfectly vulnerable, perfectly feeling, perfectly real.
In that book, I wrote about Divine Romance, the kind of romance that comes in like a tide and never goes out. It is 25 years later, and I have lived that love, and it has at this time brought me to a place of perfect love. Perfect love is like a diamond; it is so hard it will not crack or chip. It will not break and will probably last past death do us part.
I am 68, and I still struggle to evolve, grow and change. And I must say I am very much interested in fountains of youth, in age regression, an end to pain and such things. I will write a separate essay about that, but it is part of my perfect love for Luciana. Her love has sustained me during the years of pain in my body and earlier on in my soul. She has rescued me so many times I could hardly count. So I am fiercely committed to staying around, in my now almost perfectly healed body, for as long as possible. If it were just me, I doubt if I would want to stick around on this planet for so long.
Meditation and HeartHealth
My contemplative life and commitment to HeartHealth have brought me to a place where I can live and breathe perfect love. One of my greatest advancements in recent months was to expand my mediation to two times a day and now three. But it is over 30 years since I learned to still my mind, body, and emotions to zero for 20 minutes at a time. Thus in my meditations, I could touch on pure consciousness (God) and be one with that Light because it is me, my highest self, that self that is pure, meaning not muddled with thoughts, physical pain, tension, nor emotions.
I wish I could report that this realization had brought me to the shores of perfection as a person, but I am all these years later still working on that and my diet! However, as of late, the more frequent trips to the end of the universe (how I induct myself into meditation and reach pure consciousness quickly) have me polishing the diamond of my pure and now perfect love.
My secret was first to throw down my mind in favor of my heart, and I did that by championing my vulnerable feelings over my self-obsessed thought world. I persisted through over three decades of meditation, not on any abstract vision or concept of God but on the Light that shines within when you cast aside all distractions.
When reciting my prayers in mediation like The Lord is my Shepard I shall not Want, I instantly see that with God (the Light) on one side and the perfect love I share with my wife on the other side, how can I want or need more. To have both is incredible, and then to top that off to have meaningful work in the world, play intense music and sing (I was tone-deaf as a kid), and have the happiness and health of my six kids is to have everything that matters in life.
I do not share this to brag but to illustrate what is possible and to share the context of the perfect love I am trying to communicate. God is perfect, God is Great, God is everywhere because it is that Light that shines across the entire universe. When one is in that Light, it is easy to travel, in one’s imagination, to the end of the universe because the Light of Pure Consciousness is already there. To go from one’s self to one’s self takes no time.
I was taught a long time ago that one could use the imagination to get rid of one’s imagination, and that is what I do when I travel to the end of the universe. Only so big one can get or expand to, and the universe’s rim is it. What can one imagine bigger than the ultimate in bigness, so the mind collapses into Pure Consciousness, that place beyond the imagination and other levels of mind, which are the intellect and conceptual sense.
Human loves are necessary as steps toward the divine.
Love is the power that closes the circuit between beings. There is nothing more beautiful than true love, nothing more needed, nothing more hoped for.
Love is what life is all about. Love is what holds us together and gives us the strength to face life’s challenges. I write about medicine because I love to and because it is my mission and purpose to communicate with others about what is important in life.
The healthy human heart needs warmth, is warmth, and can give warmth to others. The deeper we dive into the heart and open to its super intelligent ways, the more balanced, coherent, and healthy our bodies, minds, and emotions become.
Communication is love. Listening is love.
Wherever you find a poverty of communication, you will find a poverty of love, and wherever you find a poverty of love, you will find a poverty of deep listening. These two most practical definitions of love combine to form a context in which love can be understood, measured, learned, and practiced. Love is more than acts, deeds, words, or feelings.
To love someone is to give part of our heart to them. And how do we do this? Through our willingness and openness to communicate and listen to someone, we most readily can demonstrate the truth of our love. It is impossible to have much love, compassion, and understanding for another unless we are in touch with their world.
The more we love another person, the more we share in each other’s worlds through strong and open bonds of communication. True listening is love in action, for it demonstrates our willingness to pay attention to, respond according to, and change ourselves in response to the inner worlds and needs.
Many beings are walking this planet with beautiful hearts that are deserving of our love, but the secret, of course, is to become one of them, a being with a love light shining out of our heart. We need to give what we would want to receive. Love answers love. Likes attract.
Few know that the crucial key to finding pure love is found in our willingness and ability to be vulnerable. To treasure vulnerable love is the first law of a pure heart.
Eleven Years Ago I wrote:
In my earliest writings, I talk about “a return to a beauty, heaven, and garden that we will create, share and enjoy together.” The garden exists. I have been there and fallen out only to rise again back to its sweet heaven.
I have repeated the process so many times, and I tell you the pain of the fall is never any less – though through the last few years, despite my imperfections, I have fallen less and less. Now I don’t fall or hardly so.
The garden is a place in consciousness, and we know when we are there when we can share it with one other (and others) in what I call small-group consciousness in family life. That’s the confirmation when we see the love light shining back on us through the eyes of our beloved.
The condition (the price of admission) set forth is the pureness of our love and the openness of our hearts. It is amazing to discover that one can achieve and enjoy pure love without being perfect.
Intimacy, touch, sex, and love are crucial to our happiness. A life lived without these essentials is more difficult to endure. So it behooves us to understand more about love and the health benefits of sex, intimacy, communication, and listening because with increases in all of these experiences of being come increasing strength to meet life’s challenges and increasing immunological resistance.
My cancer course is a work of love, and my intention of almost giving it away is to reduce the suffering of families worldwide. Cancer is a disease, like diabetes, made worse by doctors stuck in the mud of pharmaceutical interests. It is time to know more than your oncologist.
Whether you or someone you love has cancer, knowing what to expect can help you cope and live through the experience. From in-depth information about cancer and its causes to in-depth information about treatments, emotional aspects, tests, and a whole lot more, I offer a 100 lesson course on cancer at eighty percent off the regular price of 500 dollars. So your cost will be only 99 dollars. The course is part of a doctoral program at Da Vinci University and, when taken for credit, costs 1,000 Euros for both parts.
