A Living Love

A Living Love

By Alisa Battaglia

“Let us not Love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.” John 3:18

Permanently extending Valentines Day over the rest of our lives could transform us and furthermore, extend our love on a wider scale of Goodwill towards all sentient life that could certainly transform the world!

Let everyday be an expression of your love and gratitude for your loved ones and essential kindness towards others. There is no need to wait for the annual reminder of Valentine’s Day to authentically share your heart. Presents are a delightful way to enter the doorway of surprise, but remember it’s not really about buying cards, chocolate and gifts or spending money that is wiser spent elsewhere. It is rather time well spent with the one you love intimately bringing you closer together, in body, heart and Soul.

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For Love is sufficient unto Love.

When you love you should not say, “God is in my heart,” but rather, “I am in the heart of God.”
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy directs your course.

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love; and to bleed willingly and joyfully. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving; To rest at the noon hour and mediate love’s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude; And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.”

~Kahlil Gibran

A Simpler Approach to Life Between Points of Tension

A Simpler Approach to Life Between Points of Tension

“To live with simplicity is to unburden our lives—to live more lightly, cleanly, aerodynamically.” ~Duane Elgin

At a time when we have heard the spectrum of excuses for the failing order and experience its unworthy actions that ask for our trust just long enough until the next dupe are the shifting of the pieces on the chessboard as a collective distraction. This peaceful warrior has recognized the timely fact that an inner re-evolution must meet the outer need.

Amidst the outer chaos and political theatre is a nebulous transition that is opportune in loosening the stranglehold on our body-mind. As these points of tensions meet, illusions are pierced and the desire for glamour loses its glitter. We see the magnetic lure as a weight on personal creativity and a downslide into mediocrity. We finally get that the deep focus on material things has been at the cost of spiritual values and we step back, shift our consciousness and redirect our growing pains from the global financial crisis towards the freedom of simplicity.

This simpler approach to life offers tremendous opportunity to serve the Souls plan as a great “army of implacable spiritual will,” in a time of momentous decision.

“Simplicity and union are related, for simplicity is one-pointedness of outlook and clarity of purpose, and these are descriptive of life lived at a point of spiritual tension. In such a state one becomes a participant in a process of distribution of spiritual energy from the highest realms of our planetary life to the outermost reaches of life on earth, and this is the opportunity [before us].” ~Lucis Trust

This period in our evolutionary history is called the “Aquarian Age” focused in goodwill—the sharing of resources with the collective consciousness, while holding steadfast our individuation. As a responsive cooperative channel—the collective heart of humanity makes every effort to release the water of life poured forth for a thirsty world. This sharing of higher values and clear spiritual focus in all human relations is the gift of the Aquarian Age, as it contains the seeds of solution to the world’s crisis on all levels of living, both personal and in all relations, human and otherwise.

Let us as a cohesive, united force of Light begin to understand the significance of “Global Communion” aka group service in these early stages of human consciousness development and set an example the characteristic of sharing—the will-to good. Sharing in authenticity opens the heart and lets in the flow of Love to absorb, circulate and distribute into the veins of culture throughout the world. Alice Bailey wrote that, “this sharing, beginning on the physical plane, will prove equally true of all human relations and this will be the great gift of the Aquarian Age to humanity.”

We are wise to broaden our consciousness to the fact!
