Earth — Moon
WE ARE PUT ON EARTH A LITTLE SPACE THAT WE MAY LEARN TO BEAR THE BEAMS OF LOVE . - William Blake
This is a picture of earth taken by the Mars explorer from a distance of about 35 million miles. You can't see the Sun on the right ( our home star ) but you can see it's reflection off of Earth and the Moon.
When you realize that there are 200 billion Stars in our Galaxy alone and that there are countless Galaxies in the Universe ~ the immensity of the Universe becomes very apparent.
When you couple this with the fact that OUR sun ( Star ) completes one cycle around OUR galaxy every 200 million years ~ now the true immensity of OUR OWN galaxy becomes very apparent.
So what is it that binds this Universe all together ?
Is it Gravity or is it a uniting force within which even gravity is a condition of state ?
The answer is LOVE , the Ultimate Uniting Force of the Universe.
It was Teilhard de Chardin who wrote " love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them for it alone takes them and joins them to what is deepest within themselves."
So the whole Universe is a field of love which also resonates with what is deepest within ourselves. When I observe the spectacle of a clear and wondrous starry night ~ is that why I feel a deep kinship with those distant Stars ?Is that why they seem so close and real ~ even though they are many light years away ?Is that feeling of awe and wonder perhaps associated with a deep truth that I once knew as a child and learned to stuff and forget as an adult ?
The answer is YES to all of those questions for within this Unified Field of love and soul consciousness ~ there is no time and space and it is indeed ~ the one constant of the universe. And yes , we once knew or at least sensed this great truth as a child .
So if I fully open my heart and take full responsibility for the love that is deepest within myself ~ I will eventually realize that I am part of something far greater than myself and that I have a part to play in a universal loving plan.
Is not the whole planet in the process of making this transition from ego consciousness to soul consciousness ?
The answer is YES . We are indeed , each one of us, emissaries of love on a mission to a planet that is still in a state of ego consciousness.
Our mission , only revealed when we fully open our heart, is to remove our fear based cloak of ego consciousness , find and be our authentic self and then play our part in a rapidly evolving loving plan.
There is no greater joy than knowing that I am part of something far greater than myself and that I am playing my part in a divine loving plan.
That's what Blake meant when he wrote ~ we are put on earth a little space that we may learn to bear the beams of love.
Would it not then make sense that if we make a shift in consciousness and realized that our need to unite, cooperate with and love one another is far greater than our need to separate from and destroy each other ~ that then, and only then, we would become aware that we are not alone in this gigantic loving universe ~ and that this planet is part of something far greater then our limited ego based vision.
It was Teilhard who also wrote , " if there were no real propensity to UNITE , even at a prodigiously rudimentary level, indeed, in the molecule itself ~ it would be impossible for love to appear higher up in the ' hominized ' or human form. "
As such , we are rapidly approaching the point in our evolution where we can no longer deny this urge to unite and every one of us has a part to play in this evolutionary process ~ within which we all participate as co-creators.
Are you playing your part ?
Remember these words from St John of the Cross ;
In the evening of this life ~ it is on LOVE we shall be judged .
