What is love? My attempt at defining the undefinable is as follows: “LOVE IS THE FELT SENSE OF ONENESS THAT WE ALLOW INTO OUR AWARENESS.”
As a young child growing up in what was then Rhodesia in Africa, I used to ponder ‘my awareness’, with the intuitive knowing that true awareness was Oneness, but that this Oneness was difficult to experience down here in the human realm. Then one day it came to me that we (humans) must be like fingers on the same hand, the hand of Life (God). Later I extended that analogy to waves on the surface of the ocean. This ocean is the Ocean of eternal Being, with the waves (human expressions) being brief experiences of the Ocean playing with form in a myriad of ways, for a tiny moment in time. All forms come and all forms go, while the Ocean remains. The waves arise from the ocean, have a brief and unique experience, and then sink back into the eternality they were birthed from. Awakening is the realisation of this eternal substance of oneness while having the experience of a separate wave-form. Love is the Ocean of Life which flows into each and every moment when not filtered out or blocked by the human mind with its insistence on the perception of separation.
I trust that this map helps you to understand and connecting deeper with love and your true Being.
