Untainted Love

Lit up Love… in progress © 2011 Aida Toure

“When faced with other human beings, we often have to resist, to assert ourselves so that we are not destroyed. But when we efface ourselves before God, we strengthen ourselves and grow.” ~Omraam

Humans and Love do not always interplay in a pleasant way, Love is and can flow through us only when we succeed in curbing the ego which majorly interferes with Love. When humans strive to polish their inner lives, they become like crystals that Love can shine through, when in this state it’s impossible to covet or to cause harm to anyone. Without this inner work, dealing with humans has always a dangerous element to it, there is a violent energy that is bred and cultivated in the interaction that becomes the very dynamic of the relationship; in this case it is not Love but domination  that guides the interaction and in time it is oppressive, poisonous. Sadly most relationships between humans function in this manner; the ego is inclined to stifle and devour the other whenever the opportunity presents itself; it completely ruins the initial beauty of relationships and causes pain.

One who reflects Love allows space for the other to be who s/he is and is concerned for the other well-being and what they could do for the other, it takes great surrender to love and to nurture the other, this is the disposition of the wise one, it takes another wise soul to be able to mirror it. That sort of self-effacement is mundanely associated with weakness, the pure beauty of humility, sensitivity and giving is often crushed by the worldly. To me it is like a resentment for Love itself, it is being destructive, and this destruction is not limited to the way humans treat one another, it’s also extended to the way they treat Nature, the oceans, and mostly children, how they prey on their minds to teach them domination so it is perpetuated when they become adults because without this energy of domination the current system of things can not survive. Therefore what comes to life between us in our interactions is reflected everywhere around us, be it Love or lack of Love, the latter is pretty much the norm which is unfortunate and unnatural.

Love is present in your life, awake to it, cherish it, rise always beyond the mainstream frequency, only this will reward your heart and make you rich for, greater loves will flock to you and this phenomenon will be unending… Love is extraordinarily divine! Bathe in it, taste it and spread it, fearlessly~
