The inexhaustible source of love

Even though men and women place love above all else and hope to find ‘true love’ that will last forever, why do they find it so difficult keeping it alive for a few years or even, sometimes, just a few months? It is because as soon as they feel attracted to someone, they stop at that person. They do not know that he or she is the channel through which flow other-worldly beauty, riches and qualities and that it is this other world that their soul thirsts for. So they concentrate on this one person and expect everything of him or her. That is the mistake, and it is the source of their disillusionment and unhappiness. Men and women should learn to see each other as the first stage on the path that will lead them to the source of love, and then joy will never leave them. For at its source the water of love is always limpid, pure and life-giving, but also inexhaustible, and they will never stop drinking from this water through …

Loving wisely

“What humans need most is to love and be loved, to give love and receive love. And the truth is that they have a greater need to love than to be loved. Yes, to love, because it is their love that makes them alive and inspires them. To love is the greatest source of blessings. This is why you must never prevent your heart from loving: love all of creation, all creatures, always seeking how best to express your love. However, if you have love for all creatures, it does not mean you should not be cautious. If you expose your love too much, you run the risk of being taken advantage of. So wisdom must have its say too. It will teach you how to show reserve but without stifling your love. It is often better to keep your love secret, so that it can work for the good of yourself and others.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

Is it love or sexuality?

How can we tell the difference between love and sexuality when, in relationships between couples, the two generally go together? Sexuality, when expressed without love, is an egocentric tendency which incites human beings to seek their own pleasure, even to the detriment of their partner. Love, on the contrary, thinks first and foremost of the other’s happiness. It is based on sacrifice: the sacrifice of time, energy or money, if necessary, in order to help the other, to enable the other to blossom and develop all his or her qualities. Nothing is more beautiful than love, when men and women are ready to accept deprivation, to wrest something from themselves in order to give it. So ask yourself whether the person you love is benefiting from your love. If they are becoming ill and weak and losing their love for life, ask yourself what you have done to harm this creature. You should have taken care of them as you would tend a garden flower. But if you see that the person you love is growing …

The twin-soul within

Once a man or a woman has truly found their twin soul, that is, has found their complementary principle within, they keep feeling they are meeting this principle everywhere, in all creatures. They love all the women and all the men on earth; they love them spiritually, and they are happy, because they are fulfilled by their twin soul. They no longer experience the emptiness for which others constantly feel they have to find a cure. They feel enriched by every encounter they have. Yes, when you have achieved inner fulfilment, you find your complementary principle in every being. Such experiences cannot be explained or expressed. Only those who have had them can understand them. But what a long way there is to go until then! Always suffering and being disappointed, always looking for someone and not finding them… You think, ‘Ah, this is the one.’ And then, after a while, you realize it isn’t. So, perhaps it’s someone else?… And so it goes on, until you realize you have your twin soul within. But …

Meeting of souls- making love last

So many love stories end in failure! And yet. each time a man and woman begin to love again, they hope that this time it will last for ever and that at last they have found their soul mate… But why then, does that not happen? Because they are unaware of all the elements that come into play when they meet. They discover they have certain affinities and imagine that is enough. What they do not know is that the attraction drawing them together is not a superficial need, easy to satisfy. It is the expression of a cosmic phenomenon and principally concerns their soul and spirit. That is why, before a man and woman become involved on the physical level, they must first come together on high, in the divine world, in the world of light. This union on high is the condition that must be fulfilled if their union here below is to be solid, long-lasting and capable of producing creations of the utmost beauty.

Love is an energy from on high

Love is not just the feeling humans have for one another. Love is an energy that comes from on high, an energy that has the same quintessence as the sun. The task of men and women is to take this energy into themselves and allow it to circulate in them in such a way that it then returns to the heights, from where it came. If it does not circulate correctly, it means that many impurities have collected within them, because they have not put enough effort into controlling their instincts and passions. So instead of this energy rising again, it descends further and becomes buried in the regions of the lower astral plane, where it is lost. When we have worked to become purer and have gained self-mastery, the energy that comes down each day from the divine Source will be able to circulate through us and return to the heights. For according to the Creator’s concept and construction of the universe, love’s starting point is in heaven, and its end point is also …

Keeping love alive

“People usually associate happiness with love. But very many also recognize in the end that their happiness has been only short-lived! Why? Because they did not know how to preserve their love. To find happiness in love, you must understand that it is not dependent on possessing someone physically or even on the emotional link connecting you to one another. You will only experience true love in that subtle something that connects you, through a man or a woman, to the whole universe, to the beauty of the flowers, forests, springs, sun and constellations. Do not rush to remove the physical distance that separates you from the one you love, otherwise you will gradually lose all of that subtle world where you sensed the whole of nature alive and pulsating. All that will remain is the physical, prosaic side, and that is not where you will find happiness.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov
