But time for research is scarce these days and the impulse continues. So I’m afraid I have to yield to it without researching.
Instead I draw upon my inner knowing, from whatever source it comes (my Higher Self, my guides, the celestials).
The great Choreographers of life – Father/Mother God – designed life as a dance. Everything – the setting, the dancers, the music – They created of love, from love, through love.
The Father contributed his spark of love and the Mother housed it in a body of love. They left in our heart of hearts the perpetual and unquenchable thirst for mergence with the Father/Mother once again. (1)
That spark is to be found in the heart of every living being.
No, there’s more.
That spark isn’t just in the heart of every being. It is the heart. The soul and the heart are one and the same.
Their choreography sees the dancers (us) partner for a while and let go and partner and let go. The dance may last through lifetimes … well, it often does. The gradual and perpetual movement is from unconsciousness of who we are to consciousness.
And, while it wasn’t always so, right now at least, it seems that that knowledge comes less from meditating in a cave and more from connecting with each other.
The Father/Mother One hid the divine spark from our everyday knowing by creating what Hindus call a “knot in consciousness.” (2) This aperture, called the hridayam, is perpetually closed, keeping us from the tremendous flow of love that comes from the heart or soul behind the knot.
But even with the enlightenment that comes from deep Fifth Dimensionality – never mind higher dimensionality – the aperture permanently opens and the love flows freely from the heart or soul to the everyday consciousness.
When we finally merge with God, we become love itself. We become what we always were and know it completely for the first time.
More and more, love is flowing out from us in all ways – through our fields, speaking, looks, thoughts, and feelings. I’m sure it can be seen in our auras. I’m sure it can be felt through our very presence.
We find ourselves rising in consciousness under the influence of the liberating energies of the shift now occurring. And, as we do, we have an increasing ability to tap into the love seeping in ever-increasing amounts from our hearts.
I’ve mentioned one exercise I do that has a tremendous impact on me. I draw up love from my heart on the inbreath and breathe it out to the world on the outbreath. Every time I do that, it has an inordinate effect on me.
We can use our imagination – which is the way we’ll create in the Fifth Dimension anyways – to envision this aperture as an open portal, an open door, an open floodgate through which rivers of love are flowing.
The great Ocean of Consciousness is a sea of love. We – its drops – left it as vapor and return to it as condensation. When the drop returns to the Ocean, love meets love. Love merges in love. Love, which came from love, returns to love again.
The challenge for us is to add love to whatever we do. It’s a divine form of multi-tasking: (1) Do and (2) love while doing.
Love is the great fact of the universe. It’s inescapable, omnipresent, and irresistible. If we only learn to love in life, we’ve gained it all.

(2) “[The] Heart is the seat of Jnanam [wisdom] as well as of the granthi (knot of ignorance). It is represented in the physical body by a hole smaller than the smallest pin-point, which is always shut. When the mind drops down in Kevalya Nirvikalpa [samadhi], it opens but shuts again after it. When sahaja [nirvikalpa samadhi] is attained it opens for good.” (Ramana Maharshi, GR, 96.)
“The nexus [or knot] of the body and the Self is called the granthi. …
“He for whom the atman [or spark] alone shines, within, without and everywhere, as (clearly as) objects to the ignorant, is called one who has cut the nexus.
“The nexus is twofold; one the bond of the nadis [spiritual nerves], dwells in one nadi alone, the bond (between awareness and the body) is sundered and the light abides in the Self. …
“Once the knot is cut, one is never bound again. This is considered the state of power supreme and peace supreme [sahaja samadhi].” (Sri Ramana Maharshi in SRG, 49-55.)
