Power of Love
Infinite Life Force
Most all of us make claims to the power of love. On some level we know that love is the ultimate everything and yet when things get “serious” or when we get caught up in our emotional or thinking bodies the power of love is forgotten. Why is it that we drop love or downplay its position as the grand orchestrator of all of life when things get messy, unclear or uncertain? Why does our thinking mind along with its linearity and rationality become the prime ruler rather than the heart?
First of all let me just say that love is the source of infinite life force. Life force is love, love is life force. Life force is what makes everything come alive. It is the breath of the universe and everything within it. This is why when we feel like we are in love we feel alive, awake, alert and juiced up, because we actually are. Love, whether for self, other or just as a state of being, brings with it infinite, inexhaustible life force. It can not because love and life force are one and the same.
Life force, energy and love are terms that can be used interchangeably. Life force is the quite literal energy source that powers everything in the universe including your physical body. It is fairly common knowledge at this point that everything in the universe is energy. When all matter is broken down into its most basic components all that remains is vibrating energy. That vibrating energy is life force/love. Patterns of thoughts, beliefs and perceptions then give shape to that energy and the world of forms that we see with our eyes.
As powerful as our thoughts are in their ability to bring forms to life, they are nothing without the energy source of love to back them up. Pure, unconditioned love is the most coherent, whole energy source that there is. When we have thoughts that are fueled by less coherent states of energy, such as fear, rage, or rationality, they are much less efficient or effective and therefore the forms they create are not as optimal, complex or productive. Less coherent states of energy are simply states of energy that are not as aware of their inherent wholeness. Love knows it wholeness which is where its extreme power arises.
Fall from Grace
Perception of Wrongness
When we think about the power of love without being connected with the knowingness of love our power is greatly diminished. True power does not come from thought alone, but from the intimate acknowledging and resting into love so that its power naturally expresses. The primarily perception that keeps us disconnected from knowing love intimately is the perception of wrongness.
When we view through the perception of wrongness we create separation where there is none. Separation creates a less coherent state of energy because within separation implies a lack of wholeness. Wrongness means that something must be thrown out of the whole and when that occurs there is less energy/life force available to the system (individual or collective). Say for example you (or your culture) judge multiple things about yourself, another person, or the environment as wrong. The more you judge the more you shrink your perspective. With this comes a sense of confinement and limitation. Simultaneously the less innately good you feel and the less energy you have available to you. Manifestation feels more effortful and there is greater disorganization in what gets created. This is a state of decreased coherency where your knowingness of love and ability to utilize the power of love is diminished. This does not mean that love is actually diminished, but only your perception of it. Again this happens at individual and collective system levels.
Perceiving wrongness also brings on both sides of it righteousness and shame. To defend one’s rightness or hide in one’s shame birth the entire gamut of defensive patterns of self-protection. This is our fall from grace or love. This is the imposition of limitation on life force. This is the disconnection from our power, which is the power of love. To restore connection and remember the power of love we must dismantle our belief in our own or others wrongness. To know love rather than think love requires this.
Love has no boundaries, it penetrates all. Love brings light to even the darkest dark, to every recess of unconsciousness. Nothing is brighter than love. To stand in the radiance of love is to illuminate the entire world. All healed, all whole, all intimately aware of itself. From here the purest and most efficiently organized forms of creation are created. Life force vitalizes all. This doesn’t happen independently of you, it happens because of you. At some point we must all surrender to love. It is inevitable. We must give away our addiction to less coherent thoughts of wrongness, missing and lack of wholeness, and open our system into greater coherency, full force life force and the power of love.
