Love “Thought-Feelings” in Prose & Verse
NOTE: The decimal number before each verse stands for the month and the day. For instance, ‘2:7’ refers to February seventh, and so forth. Each passage that is numbered as 2:7 was conceived and written on that day. Each passage that was written on that day –2:7– is shown successively, as the verse came to me, by adding a third sequential number –2:7.0, 2:7.1…and so forth.
2:7 Of Love I write in accents deep
as inward bond of unity.
Love it binds all things as one
as ordered will through Meaning’s bliss.
2:7.1 In the beginning at the end
when past and present and future meet,
pure limitless, underlying Love
bathes our being in radiance.
2:7.2 Love is Meaning; Meaning, Bliss.
that is all we need to know;
for Love is will to-be-at-one,
and Meaning is one-will in Bliss.
2:7.3 As Planets spin and atoms swirl
as good and evil interact,
one Will gives ordered meaning to
their ultimate identity.
2:7.4 Though Love with strife do rule the world,
strife is but Love’s consequence;
for toward good and bad we are inclined.
In either case, it’s what we love.
2:7.5 Passion for what we desire,
sympathy for all that lives,
is ardent will to be-at-one
with that of which we’re separate.
2:7.6 Erotic love joins body-mind
of masculine and feminine
to propagate oneself from two
for immortality of life.
2:7.7 Sex release for self alone
with another, or oneself,
is love of sex as urge and thrust;
not sex as womb and phallic Love.
2:7.8 Do right, be true, to all, to you;
understand yourself in all.
Accomplish this in vibrant grace,
then know through Love you share in Being.
2:9 “Everything is relative”—true;
relative to this or that;
and Love, being both this and that,
is unity relative to none.
2:9.1 Love, Meaning, and their Bliss–these three
are but the same in Unity:
Love binds, Meaning knows all things,
their Bliss shines on eternally.
2:9.2 Unity — the generic word
for Love, its meaning, and their Bliss–
is God in Its divinity:
its sacred text and holy prayer.
2:10 Unity on Love depends,
and Love is Meaning’s binding force:
the cause and reason for its being,
as the mysterium of the world.
2:10.1 Unity is the cosmic One
from part to part and part to whole;
impersonal—yet personal too:
in Love, which binds it all in place.
2:10.2 If Love is all and everyone,
It knows Itself as-in all things;
so everything, as Love itself;
knows itself as-in everything.
2:10.3 Love is knowing we can be
everything in Unity;
though outwardly we just are this,
inwardly we all are this.
2:11 Love is you, Love is me, Love is all,
at the Meaning of our being.
and the Meaning of our being,
is the same of everything.
2:11.1 Love as Meaning, Meaning as Bliss:
these three as pure conscious Unity:
an all-embracing world of light,
as the power that wills the world.
2:12 Love, Meaning, and Bliss, into one:
as pure conscious radiance;
experienced as Unity
is our birthright for us to know.
2:13 Hear me those who love the most:
You are nearest Love’s secret way
and this secret must you cherish,
for in it is your strength in weakness.
2:13.1 For every action there’s reaction
empirically in space and in time.
The Meaning of phenomena,
however, tells it otherwise.
2:14 Interpretation is all we know
of Unity’s reality.
We think and live it as we can
from which perspective suits our mind.
2:18 That we are Love, know that for sure
at the essence of our being;
of this truth our first duty is:
to live this love in strength and grace.
2:18.1 Love is knowing we can be
when we close our minds to thought,
can be the Love we truly are:
the Bliss of Love’s pure entity.
2:20 If to the word “Love” you are intent,
then feel your body bonded whole;
and if to “Meaning, “think your mind;
and if to “Unity,” then be as IT.
