Twenty years ago, I wrote The Marriage of Souls, The Second Coming of Pure Love. The Marriage of Souls is about creating heaven on earth together. Bliss is for those who love each other, flowing into each other, feeding each other, ever part of one life. In the Marriage of Souls is a promise, “a return to a beauty, heaven, and garden that we will create, share and enjoy together. The Marriage of Souls is about a love beyond our dreams.
The Marriage of Souls is a divinely beautiful pathway that leads us to an eventual return to complete oneness with one, and then with a greater family of beings. It is about a heavenly bliss shared between beings that love each other from the bottom of their hearts and souls.
Believe in the garden; it does exist. It is a real place that we can go to when we open our heart and share it with significant others. The garden is a place in consciousness and when we are there we know we can share it with at least one significant other. That’s the confirmation, when we see the love light shining back on us through the eyes of our beloved.
Love is the offering of Oneness,
the maintenance of Oneness,
and the work of creating Oneness.
True love is an epic romance with Oneness,
with love and with life itself.
Romance is essentially the dream of Oneness
and when pursued with all our heart, mind and
soul it becomes the seed feeling that has the
potential to grow into the deepest love.
Oneness is the ultimate goal of Love.
The most important key real love is found in our willingness and ability to recognize and accept our vulnerability. Love is the heavenly force that binds all as one, two as one, three as one and so on. Human loves are absolutely necessary as steps toward the divine. Love is the power that closes the circuit between beings. There is nothing more beautiful than true love, nothing more needed, nothing more hoped for.
The healthy human heart needs warmth, is warmth and can give warmth to others. The deeper we dive into the heart and open to its super intelligent ways, the more balanced, coherent, and healthy our bodies, minds, and emotions become.
There are many ways to worship what is most high in this universe of ours and one of the greatest worships is found in the shaping of our own worth. Whatever our heart loves it has the will for.
The feminine principle opens a vista onto possibilities and potentials for love; but most importantly, it offers a ‘quality’ of love that most of us need, want and dream of, a pure love that will touch our souls. The goddess develops a type of love that comes from the depths of our hearts and leads to a lightness of being that can be shared with others – a kind of love that leads to a day to day communion with each other on the deepest levels of authenticity, vulnerability and being,
Center for Listening and Communication Studies
The one thing in the world that produces love and understanding is the one thing most missing in our civilization. Listening is the key to healthy human relationships but we have never been taught to listen though most people still believe, falsely, that they are good listeners.
Wherever you find a poverty of communication
you will find a poverty of love,
and wherever you find a poverty of love
you will find a poverty of deep listening.
Listening is not modeled in governments thus not in public educational systems. Authoritative institutions do not champion listening and in America we find that as true for democracy. Even husbands and wives do not listen deeply to each other and that is a principle reason marriages all too often end in divorce.
Nothing shows off the quality of our love better than our listening skills and in essence listening is what keeps people together. People who listen to each other end up wanting to be and stay together for nothing connects us better than our listening to each other’s world of feelings. Listening is love and love is listening, they are qualities of being that reflect each other perfectly. Love does not exist in human relationships without deep listening.
Love is more than acts, deeds, words, or feelings. To love someone, is to give part of our heart to them. And how do we do this? It is through our willingness and openness to communicate and listen to someone that we most readily can demonstrate the truth of our love. It is impossible to have much love, compassion and understanding for another unless we are in touch with their world. When we love another, it shows some kind of appreciation for their existence and world of experience. The more we love another the more we share worlds with them through strong and open bonds of communication.
True listening is love in action for it demonstrates our willingness to pay attention to, respond in accordance with, and change ourselves in response to the inner worlds and needs of others. Listening is the ecology of being; it opens the doorway to the heart. Listening creates trust between beings; listening creates love.
Nothing shows off the quality of our love better than our listening skills and in essence listening is what keeps people together. People who listen to each other end up wanting to be and stay together. Listening is love and love is listening; they are qualities of being that reflect each other perfectly.
To listen is to suffer because we do not want to listen
to anything that might require a change.
To listen is to change.
We cannot change without listening.
Listening implies a change.
We need to change just to listen.
Love answers love, likes attract. Few know though that the crucial key to finding pure love is found in our willingness and ability to be vulnerable. To treasure vulnerable love is the first law of a pure heart. There are many beings walking this planet with beautiful hearts that are deserving of our love but the secret of course is to become one of them, a being with a love light shining out of our heart. We need to give what we would want to receive. Love answers love; likes attract.
Understanding Love, Sex and Intimacy
The most important key to finding love is found in our willingness and ability to be vulnerable. To treasure vulnerable love is the first law of a pure heart. The purpose of our life here on earth is to contact our being, expand and grow our being by coming into a direct relationship with the essence of our heart’s true nature. And what is this true nature? The Heart is the Vulnerability of Being.
Intimacy, touch, sex, and love are crucial to our happiness. Life lived without these essentials is more difficult to endure. So it behooves us to understand more about love and also about the health benefits of sex, intimacy, communication and listening because with increases in all of these experiences of being come increasing strength to meet life’s challenges as well as increasing immunological resistance.
Intimacy requires and is a beautiful space. Sex and love can both contain highly negative qualities in normal human expression, but intimacy is something that happens between souls when we reach out to others with trust; it’s a space we enter when we dare to open our hearts and just be. It happens when we put away all the fancy airs and just be who we really are without fear of judgment. Though sexuality and love can be selfish, intimacy seems to represent a pure space between beings. Intimacy is very much connected to vulnerability for it is the sharing of vulnerabilities between beings that creates intimacy.
