We are One

Agape Sex

By far the most important concept I present in the eBook, Sex and Sexuality – One Woman’s Journey of Discovery, is in the following quote from Jesus. 

Come to accept your bodies for their only true purpose.

They are vehicles for communication,

for the communication of Love. That is their only purpose.

Give them no other, and you will see a transformation in your lives

 that will give you endless cause for joyous celebration and gratitude.

(Jesus the Christ)

I have mentioned many times in my blogs that the mind and the body are tools for exploring this 3rd dimensional world of material matter and ego mind.  You are not your body, mind or thoughts.  You are a Spiritual Being having a human experience!  The essence of this Spiritual Being is Love, Agape Love or God’s Love.  The love taught by the ego mind and almost everywhere in this world is needy, painful love that leaves you not only empty but feeling far from Loving.  The periods of elation are short lived and the pain is often prolonged, depending on whether you wake up and realize that ego love is not the path. 

What Jesus is telling us in the quote provided is that we are to spread the message of Agape.  The body is a tool for doing just this and sexual intimacy is only one method.  It is indeed a powerful messenger if used properly, however since these things are not taught in traditional education I am here to help. 

I asked the question approximately 35 years ago and I am just now fully grasping the meaning of Love and the purpose of sex.  It doesn’t need to be like that for you or the coming generations.  Teach this to your children!

Sex is about Love, not ego love or mans love, but the Agape type, the Truth.  The human body has five senses that each add to the experience of sexual intimacy and when the bible quotes Jesus as saying go forth and multiply, he means to share this Agape Love which is the cornerstone to his teachings!  It does not mean to have babies.  Let me be very clear on this – Sex is not about making babies, it is about communicating Love!  Do so with all the tools given you.

Babies are the result of two bodies, one male and one female joining in Love and mutually agreeing in action and intent that this is the result desired.  It is a spiritual bonding to extend this Loving relationship.  Children are an extension of the parents and the relationship they share.

When sex is done for gratification, power play, or simply because ‘everyone is doing it’ the result is often painful and regretful, if not right away, later in life.  The good news is when you ask Holy Spirit to assist in the correction of this error/sin all is forgiven.  Another way to look at this is when two ego’s combine, more ego is created.

Put the intention of Love behind every action you take and each thought you claim.  Greeting others with a warm hug, soft hand shake, or even a Loving connection of eyes is the way Love is shared in daily affairs.  It is doing onto others as you would have done onto you. 

If someone shows you Love, be aware that it is an expression of God’s Love, not this person coming on to you.  The ego will quickly intervene here if allowed, I know from experience!   When you share an intimate experience know that the person whom you are sharing is a vehicle for God’s spirit as are you.  Do not get attached to a certain appearance or even a certain person, unless this is a path chosen consciously from the heart.  There are no rules. 

Do what feels right in your heart and know that good is coming from your actions.  Have faith in Love, while being aware of the ego and choosing care-fully.

God’s Love

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! ♥♥♥

Here is the answer to the previous Blog on Ego Love. The following is an excerpt from Sex and Sexuality, “For clarity I will capitalize this type of Love, so if you see “love” think ego and if you see “Love” think Eternal Spirit.  The only true form of Love is that which some define as Agape or the Love of God.  The ego mind is attempting to steer you around this section so just ignore your impulse to stop and read on.  I promise this is an extremely important concept to master.  Metaphor is so illustrative so consider this.  You came to earth expecting a mansion and were instead given a shack!  This is the illusion we all have been sold by ego mind.  The ego is not who you are but is in fact a tool given us to experience this world.  It is not possible to be in this world without your ego, because this world is in fact your ego expressing.   It is time to let go of the belief that you are your ego (or your body) for it no longer serves you. 

Who are you if you are not your ego?  When the ego is stripped away all that remains is Universal Intelligence, Great Spirit, God, or the One Mind.  Other names for God are pure Love, Joy and Peace.  For our purposes here today we are only discussing Love although Joy and Peace are interchangeable with Love.  God is All There Is and how we experience this is what Love is all about.  God is Love, God is Joy, God is Peace, God is YOU and me and all that is!  You may have heard this explanation however I offer it here because it is so profound.  Each of us are points of experience for God or you can think of each life form as an aspect of God and if God is infinite, remember the poem at the beginning of this chapter, then we all are infinite.  Here is some prose that illustrates what Love is so that you can get an idea of what this entails. 

Love Is

Love is not exclusive, but Inclusive

Love is not painful, but the Highest JOY

Love is never lost, but exists always

Love is not changing, but constant

Love is not different, but the same at all levels

Love is not wrong, but the answer

Love is Universal!

Love exists regardless of what is happening in your life, in fact

Love exists regardless of your life

Love is something you can share, but cannot prevent another from experiencing,

only yourself

Love is the only thing you have more of when you give it away

Love is a feeling, an emotion, an experience, and so much more

Love is life itself

Love is a way of life

Love is an acceptance of all that comes your way

Love is an expression of WHO YOU ARE, who we all are

I AM THAT, I AM

So the next time you wish to experience Love consider what that means.  Love is unconditional and in order to experience this we must first give it away!  How can you give away something you do not have?  You cannot, but then Love is who you are so simply give you away.  This is done by being thoughtful and considerate of others, accepting others for who they present to you, and never criticizing anyone or anything.  You give of yourself by doing onto others as you would have done onto you.” (Sex and Sexuality

Ego Love

Continuing the series on Love, the following is an excerpt from Sex and Sexuality, “The ego is an aspect of our being that allows us to function in this world.  All that you see in this world is a function of ego and I do not speak of the personality version that Sigmund Freud introduced.  I speak as A Course in Miracles (ACIM) teaches that the ego is all that separates.  Whenever you experience something separate from yourself you are experiencing ego.  This explains how we can think of love as painful or something we can lose.  The world is full of “love stories” that teach ego based separation with all the pain and pleasure that comes with it.  In this ego based world hate is the opposite of love, however they both come from the same source.  They are opposite poles of one whole, the ego.  In order to experience ego separation we must have the opposite which serves the very important purpose of supplying contrast. 

Humans revel in the experience of contrast, love, hate, pain, pleasure, happiness, sadness, hot, cold, and all the aspects of time and space.  Turn on the television for 5 minutes and you will see the contrast I speak of.  All of the sitcom and soap opera programs serve up ego separation as juicy slices of comedy, drama, and action.   The ultimate act of separation is killing or death; the grand delusion of mankind!  The ego mind is a master of weaving this delusion into every facet of your life.  You are reminded of the “reality” of death a thousand times a day, especially if you are watching television.

The world is so barraged by death that it is a natural way of life here on earth.  It is the cycle of life, life is born and it dies.  We would not have it any other way!  Or would we?  What if in fact you discovered that you never do die?  What if you removed the veil of death completely and realized the truth of all existence as the poem by Prajnaparamita so eloquently states? 

We have established what ego love is all about, but to further define it consider the many experiences we associate with love such as happiness, sadness, emotional pain, deception, betrayal, loss, falling in love, love at first sight, and even making love.  These are all ego based so this means they are illusion.  I am not saying that the experience is not real because it is indeed real, just like the movies are real.  We can experience all these things in the movies and we do!  In fact the reason we are in this earth experience is to experience love and all the other experiences involved in this journey of discovery.  So if all the love and hate we are experiencing here on earth is an illusion what is the other version of love that exists?” (Sex and SexualityThe next blog will cover the answer.

I Love You – So Now What?

The fact that “Love is the way” is sort of obvious, but what is not so obvious is a question I have pursued since way back in 7th grade.  I asked my father “what is Love!”  His answer was, “you will know it when you see it”, and I stared back at him and said “huh”? 

Love is such a dynamic subject that thousands of books have been written about it and we still want more!  So what is it about Love that we desire?  As I have shared in my previous blogs relationships are what life is all about whether they be relationships that are intimate, casual, family or friends every relationship you have is a relationship with God.  Don’t run!  God loves you and if this bugs you then maybe you should take a step back and examine why. 

It could be the word “God”.  There is so much stigma attached that it has almost lost its meaning.  Feel free to use whatever word feels best for you since they are equal, Universal Mind, Buddha, Allah, Jesus, Goddess or Great Spirit.  The point here is that you are Loved and to accept that Love is not as easy as it would seem.  In order to fully accept Great Spirit’s Love we must accept the Love we are offered in every relationship we have.  Every time you reject someone, be they friend or foe, you are rejecting Love.  Yes, this means that your ex partner that you would prefer to never see again is a source of Love and so is that sexy person at the coffee shop that you admire so much.  Every person you meet has a gift for you – an opportunity to Love.  Simple isn’t it?  Love and be Loved! 

I suppose we need to look at what love is and isn’t.  This is where it gets tricky and I suggest trusting only your heart.  We have all been hurt at some time or another, that is a given, however what you do with that hurt is the key to your Spiritual growth.  The phrase “forgive and forget” rings loud in my mind right now.  The saying, “what comes around, goes around” applies here also, because you can leave the person to what he/she created.  They will get what is coming, it is not up to you.  If you take this role (revenge/vengeful), then you become caught in the web of karma which is simply not necessary.  It takes a strong person to walk away or to even express caring/compassion for the person who hurt you.  It matters not what the person did, killed your child, cut your hand off, or call you a bad name.  Jesus showed us what forgiveness and Love brings, he will not soon be forgotten! 

Look back at the blog from Feb. 9th to see what Love is and isn’t in more detail, I originally ran that blog before this one, so I will get more into the difference between ego love or man’s love vs. God’s Love or Spiritual Love in the next blog.  As this is the key to being able to forgive and forget!

What Is Love?

This is a repost from Feb. 23 2010, in honor of Valentine’s Day. 

I will offer you a few poems to illustrate LOVE and then I will discuss some important points. 

“What is Love?

It is that which is without condition, without limitation, and without need. 

Because it is without condition, it requires nothing in order to be expressed.  It asks nothing in return.  It withdraws nothing in retaliation. 

Because it is without limitation, it places no limitation on another.  It knows no ending, but goes on forever. It experiences no boundary or barrier.

Because it is without need, it seeks to take nothing not freely given.  It seeks to hold nothing not wishing to be held.  It seeks to give nothing not joyously welcomed. 

And it is free.  Love is that which is free, for freedom is the essence of what God is, and love is God, expressed.”

Neale Donald Walsch, Friendship With God, Page 156

“Love Is, a Poem

Love is not exclusive, but Inclusive

Love is not painful, but the Highest JOY

Love is never lost, but exists always

Love is not changing, but constant

Love is not different, but the same at all levels

Love is not wrong, but the answer

Love is Universal!

Love exists regardless of what is happening in your life, in fact

Love exists regardless of your life

Love is something you can share, but cannot prevent another from experiencing, only yourself

Love is the only thing you have more of when you give it away

Love is a feeling, an emotion, an experience, and so much more

Love is a way of life

Love is an acceptance of all that comes your way

Love is an expression of WHO YOU ARE, who we all are

I AM THAT, I AM”

Sequoia Elisabeth, Livin’ Large, page 20

 Now that we have some idea of what love is and is not, I offer some important points to remember.  The first and most important thing for you to realize is that love is not painful, so if you are hurting then that is not love; that is ego.  Now that you realize this you can let it go for it serves you not!  Infatuation is often painful so no that is not love although so many of us think it is when we first get started.   This is a painful lesson to learn, but that is ok, pain is simply a distraction from the Truth, which is you are Loved by All That Is.  If you are asking for love from one person and only that person, then this is not love.  Love chooses you, not the other way around and if you put limits on your love then it instantly becomes ego.  You cannot love one person more than any other, so when I say “I love you” I mean that as if I was speaking to my Beloved, because I am!  This is the way Jesus spoke of love and so we can carry on the tradition. 

Hopefully you are getting a good feeling of what love is and is not, so now let’s take this one more level to where it all begins; in your heart.  I have mentioned doing mirror work before and this is where self acceptance and self love begin.  Look into the mirror and go deep within your soul, feel the love, say it out loud, “I Love You”.  Practice this over and over every day, every time you see yourself in the mirror!  Feel it deep within your soul, for this is who you are speaking with, and your soul is reflecting back to you!  At first this may seem difficult or awkward, just stick with it, the payoff is Golden! 

Some of you may be thinking this sounds very narcissistic or conceded.  I assure you it is not, and why it is not is because “you” are greater than what you see in the mirror.  Remember the soul we were speaking of before, this is who you are loving, not the body you see in the mirror or the ego.  Ego love is narcissistic and conceded, so that is what we are letting go of and instead we are focused on the Love of God, Universal Love, Soul Love, or Oneness.  

 “Wisdom is knowing that I am nothing, Love is knowing that I am everything, in between my life moves.”
