The Beloved Community Path
“The path we walk together as Ministers of Peace in The Beloved Community is to be LOVE INCARNATE.
In 1244 a Cathar Prophesy said the following:
The Beloved Community has no fabric, only understanding.
The Beloved Community has no membership, save those who know they belong.
The Beloved Community has no rivals, because it is non-competitive.
The Beloved Community has no ambition, because it seeks only to serve.
The Beloved Community knows no boundaries, for nationalisms are unloving.
The Beloved Community is not for itself, because it seeks to enrich all groups and religions. The Beloved Community acknowledges all great teachers of all ages who have shown the truth of love-those who participate and practice the truth of love in everything they do. There is no walk of life nor nationality that is a barrier. Those who are, know. The Beloved Community seeks not to teach but to be and, by being, enrich. The Beloved Community recognizes that the way we are may not be the way of those around us. The Beloved Community recognizes the whole planet as a being of which we are a part. The Beloved Community recognizes that the time has come for the supreme transmutation, the ultimate alchemical act of conscious change of the ego, into a voluntary return to the Whole. The Beloved Community does not proclaim itself with a loud voice, but in the subtle realms of love. The Beloved Community salutes all those in the past who have blazed the path but have paid the price. The Beloved Community admits no hierarchy or structure where one is greater than another. The Beloved Community shall know each other by their deeds and being by their eyes and by no other outward signs save fraternal embrace. Each one will dedicate their life to the silent loving of their neighbor, the environment, and the planet, whilst carrying out their task, however exalted or humble. The Beloved Community recognized the supremacy of the great idea which may only be accomplished if the human race practices the supremacy of love. The Beloved Community has no reward to offer either here or in the hereafter, save the joy of love. Each shall seek to advance the cause of understanding, doing good by stealth, and teaching by example. They shall heal their neighbor, their community, and our planet. They shall know no fear and feel no shame, and their witness shall prevail over all odds. The Beloved Community has no arcanus, no initiation, save that of true understanding of the power of love and, if we choose, the world will change as we change ourselves first.” (http://www.belovedcommunity.org/, James Twyman, 2009)
