True Love

...though Love cannot be forced on anyone, it can be awakened in him through love itself. Love is essentially self-communicative; Those who do not have it catch it from those who have it. True love is unconquerable and irresistible; and it goes on gathering power and spreading itself, until eventually it transforms everyone whom it touches.

Since love is a state of being - and the divine state at that - the state to which we all yearn to return, we wish to possess love. At best we can try to possess the key to our hearts - our beloved - but sooner or later we find that even that is impossible. To possess the key is to lose it.

 Just as with every other method of coming to the Light, if it works we get attached to the method, failing to realise that it is the goals and not the method which we crave. A relationship  starting out as one that awakens love can only remain a living vehicle for love to the extent that it is continually made new or reconsecrated. That is, each partner in love must always strain to see through the veils of personality and body to see the Divine Essence within - within himself and his partner.

The Other

Nobody wants to be "them". Everyone wants to be "us." And if you meet someone who sees you as "him" or "one of them", that meeting arouses in you all your paranoia and you, in turn, see the other person as "him" or "one of them."

Power Chakra

"If your energy were all located in the third chakra, then it would be simple...all power. You would see each person only in terms of whether that person could be used to enhance your ego. You would experience fear and hatred of those who held power over you. Your behaviour would be subservient or officious or benignly paternalistic. You would be unable to see another human being as a peer but only as superior or inferior to you in one dimension or another. In those dimensions where you are equal, you would not notice the other person."
- Be Here Now, Ram Dass

Tired Bones
Lie in the sand and ball
Tired bones
I wrote something stupid on a bathroom wall
Flocks of paper birds in a lucid dream
And you whisper “love me” in your sleep
