The Sweetness of Love

The Love of Devotion
CHAPTER 2: THE SWEETNESS OF LOVE

Scale of Consciousness

Everything in the universe radiates a specific type of energy field. Dr Hawkins devised a Scale of Consciousness which is representative of these energy fields. Everything at the lower end of the scale has a negative, downward pulling tendency and is, essentially, harmful. The lower levels are: shame, guilt, apathy, grief, fear, desire, anger, and pride. As one moves up the scale, one enters energy fields which are increasingly life-enhancing and truth-oriented: courage, neutrality, willingness, acceptance, reason, love, and unconditional love.

Energy Field of Love

An important change occurs as the individual moves into the energy field of love. The person becomes an authentically caring and unselfish being. For all the religion, spirituality, humanitarian effort, and philosophical interest in the world, the actual presence of someone at a truly loving level of consciousness is not a common experience. Love and devotion are soul mates. Love is devotion and devotion is love. The quality of spiritual devotion is recognisable by the presence of goodness, beauty, harmony, and inner confidence. Compassion becomes a marked quality of presence. Such individuals have a look of serenity and peacefulness. They automatically send healing light into the world.

Waldmeer: Bliss

Chapter 47: Bless

Maria threw her coat on the bed and turned the heater on. The house was cold on her return from the meeting.

“That was a disgrace,” she fumed to Amira. Gortaithe looked sympathetic. He would always be a one-eyed supporter. Amira, however, didn’t say anything. “Conceited, arrogant, egotistical, delusional,” said Maria. She had been thrilled with the invitation left in her mailbox a week ago.

Gentle Teachers

The gentle teachers of God, often, meet with fierce antagonism and opposition. It may seem incomprehensible as such people never seek to harm. They have the intention to help others find the same love that they have been given. Their motive in doing so is that such love must be shared. It goes with the territory of finding it.

In Search of Truth

The Love of Devotion
Chapter 1: In Search of Truth – the Nature of Spiritual Teachers

Past Teachers

Several decades passed and I continued down the path of awakening. My first book, The Love of Being Loving, speaks of these years. One never forgets one’s past teachers or disciplines. In my case, Metapsychiatry (and its founder, Dr Thomas Hora) and Christian Science had been my main spiritual influences. Such allegiances are forever enshrined in our heart and continue to help, inspire, and mould us. They are pivotal to our development and our total and absolute devotion to them secures the progress which blossoms from that commitment. The cemented bond between teacher and student surpasses time and space, and the love of a teacher can be beckoned whenever requested. Further, one often has an ongoing commitment to the other students of a teacher and, indeed, the entire group of that pathway. Nevertheless, in spite of loyalties, our inner spiritual drive will take its own path through the terrain it determines is best. It will have its own timing and will guide us to whoever is most beneficial to the next stage of our growth. Continue reading “In Search of Truth”

One afternoon, I was walking to the cafe feeling somewhat glum. As I walked through the door, a woman caught my attention and I sat near her and her friend. She was probably in her late forties but easily looked ten years younger. She wore a simple grey T-shirt and comfortable jeans which, somehow, looked fantastic without trying. She had lovely posture and effortlessly sat upright in her chair. Her short, brown hair was cut in an unfussy, sassy hairstyle. She was slim but healthy and strong, almost, androgynous. She had no makeup on but her face was beautiful. It was not beautiful like a model. It was beautiful because everything was well proportioned and it radiated a sweet, natural innocence and, simultaneously, a calm, mature groundedness. Continue reading “Energy”
