“…the celestial tree of love…”

I think we all have known the feeling that we finally understand love.

I think we all have known the feeling that we’ll never understand love.

I think most folks have had periods when they’ve oscillated between these states—sometimes within hours or minutes of each other…

My personal experience is that the only reliable and fertile understanding of love is what our highest spiritual traditions have bestowed.

Today’s Excerpts:

O SON OF LOVE! Thou art but one step away from the glorious heights above and from the celestial tree of love. Take thou one pace and with the next advance into the immortal realm and enter the pavilion of eternity. Give ear then to that which hath been revealed by the pen of glory.

Bahá’u’lláh: The Hidden Words, Persian #7

The essence of love is for man to turn his heart to the Beloved One, and sever himself from all else but Him, and desire naught save that which is the desire of his Lord.

Bahá’u’lláh: Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh, “Asl-i-Kullu’l-Khayr” or “Words of Wisdom”, p. 155

Be most loving one to another. Burn away, wholly for the sake of the Well-Beloved, the veil of self with the flame of the undying Fire, and with faces joyous and beaming with light, associate with your neighbor.

Bahá’u’lláh: Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, Selection CXLVII, p. 316

  1. All human beings have the ability to understand and experience uncondtional love. Its a matter of learning to work through the invisible barriers created by the ego that block the authentic sensations and experiences. The truth is only a belief away. Choose to savor love and invite it into every part of your being.

  2. Liara,

    “Its a matter of learning to work through the invisible barriers created by the ego…”

    Absolutely !

    Your words reminded me of the many references in the world’s Scriptures about Veils…

    And, to put that together with your idea, I’d say that some veils, though so very sheer they seem to disappear are yet strong enough to blind our spiritual perception…
