God is Love

Tuesday, December 13, 2011
God is Love. Love is the meaning of life. God is the meaning of life. My most euphoric experience of God started in tears of absolute love back in my 20s. It has only deepened since.

In my mid 20s I was extremely fortunate to experience true love from God. I am an everyday Catholic. At that stage I was an everyday 20 something with all the challenges and difficulties faced by this age group. The experience of love and God I had was quite exceptional. I have now developed a fuller appreciation of what love truly is...

To truly experience love is to truly experience God. When that most euphoric experience of true love is experienced, God is present in the moment! God's meaning enters that of the present.

The recipient becomes one with God, one with Love, ONE. Truly becoming one with the universe.

Tears flow in a state of euphoria! Uncontrolled and overawing. A reaction to the experience and yet one totally within and throughout the experience.

Once this true love becomes one with the recipient, there is no turning back and no turning away from what is now the most important and integral oneness with the all encompassing loving God.

Reality is now on a most intimate level with LOVE. Reality is in love with the all encompassing and awesome love of the one God. Love is the only direction open. The other person becomes as important as the self. A shared wisdom now must be shared with the other.

The earthly world and all within take on a most remarkable metamorphosis for the renewed 'one' person. The one now lives with and through all present - not separated from, but intrinsically intertwined with, all that coexists. No separation from the world but totally and absolutely one with all of creation and creator.

A level of existence which is most difficult to explain, yet so simple in lifestyle. To now give so much through a genuine love of humanity, environment and God without question, but purely because it is the true existence, that the previous lifestyle seems so far removed from reality now. The new lifestyle is a simple one of loving the other as much as loving yourself. With God's help this loving of the other is made easy - because it is so natural to do. So right do. So important to do!
