The power of love is the natural order of life. It is quite visible in the raw and sometimes fierce beauty in living creatures and things. In the stillness of our being we are one with this love which is our true nature. It is not personal, it just is. Then why are we shadowed by unrelenting anguish?
In our deep inner space a movement occurs by a projection arising through the mind which manifests as our worlds. Although the outer world may appear relatively similar to all persons, yet each person's world becomes distinctive unto itself. Here arises the distortion of vision, which happens to be the love of power over others driving us further away from our source. In our attachment to our particular worlds we lose contact with our true nature and this is our conflict and anguish.
Seeing it exactly as it is, life is the power of love whereas the world is the distortion being driven by the love of power. So where do you stand? If you really wish to see the truth in this message, look at it directly in your own experience. The garden of life is not the world, no matter how convincing it might seem. It is within you and the way home is stillness.
