River of Love
May 29, 2010
Love flows endlessly as in a moving river that never reaches an end, but merges into the vast ocean of love. Never let love become like a stagnate pond that even loses it’s ability to reflect the moon. Reach into the untapped reservoir of love that awaits it’s gushing to your decision to see, and allow the dam to hold back it’s power no longer. As water floods everywhere it is open to receive, love unlocked knocks on every door filling the air with invisible magic.
“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. When actions come from another section, the feeling disappears. Don’t let others lead you. They may be blind or, worse, vultures. Reach for the rope of God. And what is that? Putting aside self-will (ego). Because of willfulness people sit in jail, the trapped bird’s wings are tied, fish sizzle in the skillet.” Rumi
The mind and it’s ego is the dam that holds back the love to stagnate in obscurity in the darkness of the heart. The mind is a deceiver as it wants to think of itself as all powerful, and impervious to the free flowing of the heart’s wishes that threatens the selfish mind. The ‘mind traps’ in life that lead one to forget the heart while chasing ‘desires’ that in time float away like ‘flotsam’ in a river, are infinite and illusory. The mind is cunning enough to think it only needs itself and intellect to lead it to all it’s wants and desires. The beauties and challenges of both death and life are seen in their fullness only with the open heart.
The mind is male and the heart, female. The open balance of both keeps them flowing in harmony, and in balance with all nature. Living by the moods of the heart alone, with a mind that is programmed with unexamined information and unresolved conflicts of the past, is a heart out of control with it’s harmony. The open heart is a ‘rational heart’ as is the open mind a rational mind. Love opens it’s flow to embrace what life presents in flexibility partnering with the conscious discernments of the higher self. Real marriage flows from the open mind and heart in synchronicity with each other. Magic happens when two souls merge hearts and minds into a soul of a oneness.
