Recently, on that ambivalent modern phenomenon called Facebook, I came across this video about the Universality of Love! It is my new favorite thing! Seeing people hugging and kissing, dancing and pranaming on an x-ray screen, it’s plain to see that Love is Love.
Love has no gender
Love has no disability
Love has no age
Love has no race
Love has no species
Love has no religion
Love is love is love. Love is a wave and the ocean. Love is compassion and empathy and Oneness. Love is Radical Equality – equal down to the very root of Being – more than equal, ONE, just not the same. Love is timeless, eternal, constant and immutable. Love is Perfect. Love is messy. Love is yearning, striving, struggling, growing and awakening. Love Itself completes us. Love is physical, metaphysical, quantum physical. Love is the entanglement of particles everywhere – molecules, electrons, amoebas and the space they are all contained within. Love is the very fabric of the Universe. Love is life. Love contains all that is not Love. Love is God. God is Love. Love is a Mystery.
As much as I love all the manifestations of God – all the mantras and chants, all the prayers and communion, all the images and idols, all the psalms and bhajans, all the wisdom or all traditions, it really just comes down to Love. We can all have different religions, we can honor all religions or no religion, but we all have Universal Love. Love IS – the rest is commentary.
And at the root of all those rituals and spiritual practices, it is all really about getting to the Love that is at the core of every person, every creature and every cell in this universe. We can access this Love by honoring the love in all families, couples and peoples, without judgments about the particulars. We can access this Love by serving the love in all humans and in caring for and protecting the love in our furry friends. We can access this Love by nurturing our Earth and the creation we live in. We can access this Love through prayer, meditation or sadhana. We can access this Love through gratitude, awe and prostration.
In essence, we not only access this Love, but we BECOME this Love through LOVING.
Love is Love is Love. Love the Love. Be the Love.
Hari Om! Namaste. Amen.
Please share and spread the love around!
