Happy Spring, dear friends! We trust you have pondered the Trust Frequency definitions we offered last month. Those definitions contain some important assumptions. Are you willing to take these ideas as absolutes, and receive the Ten Assumptions within the context of their profound meanings? For example:
Humanity: A collection of divine, autonomous, sovereign beings who have chosen to incarnate on Earth to learn and grow on our soul’s journey to wholeness, each with an individual purpose and a unique gift.
This vision of humanity recognizes an overarching act of free will when we incarnated: that we are on a journey to wholeness, we have a purpose for being here, and we promised to bring a gift—us!
THE FIRST ASSUMPTION
We live in a Conscious, Loving Universe. There is only Love.
CURRENT ASSUMPTION: The universe is mechanical, lifeless, and utterly unaware of our existence. It contains life, on this planet at least, but the universe is not in and of itself alive. It is not conscious. It certainly doesn’t love us.
Mechanistic science has convinced us that this current assumption is true and we have behaved accordingly. Is this the true nature of the Universe? We don’t think so! Our proposition lies at the other end of the cosmological spectrum: the Universe is not only conscious, It is Consciousness itself. It is not only alive, It is Life itself. It is not only loving, It is Love itself. Once we truly understand what this means in the context of the Definitions, we realize that this is also what quantum physics says.
We understand that this is what the ancient animists, the Hindu rishis, the wise gurus and the founders of the world’s great religions have said from the start. It’s all LOVE! This is not an original concept, but that’s okay with us. In fact we feel validated to have the support, not only of the world’s wisest spiritual visionaries and the world’s most ancient people, but also of the world’s most intrepid scientific thinkers.
What is Love, love with a capital “L”? What does Love do? What is its function in the Universe? The Love we are talking about is known by many names. For example, it was called akasha by the ancient Hindus. In Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and many other religions and spiritual paths, it is fundamental that “God is Love”. Indigenous cosmology adds that everything, animate and inanimate, seen and unseen, is an embodiment of the Great Mystery.
God is Everything + God is Love = Everything is Love!
We take this as absolute and ask you to do the same. It changes everything.
In metaphysical terms, Love is the primordial energy that creates and sustains the physical and the non-physical Universe. It is therefore related to the gluon described by contemporary quantum physics. The gluon is the subatomic power that holds everything together. That sounds a lot like Love to us!
Love is perhaps the most misunderstood concept in the history of the human species. We need to understand the nature of the Love we are referring to. Clearly, we are not talking about romantic love, or sex, or friendship, or anything related to human emotions. We are talking about an omnipresent subatomic field, the boundless power referred to in the Star Wars films as the Force, the invisible, all-powerful energy field that pervades all of Creation. The space between the stars is not empty. It is filled with Love.
Love is the fundamental unifying and creative force of the Universe. The Universe loves us more than we can possibly understand. The most critical thing to grok is that this Love is absolutely unconditional. That is the subject of next month’s chapter, the Second Assumption.
What about those situations we see as “not-love”? How can disease, famine, or the horrific things that humanity has been perpetrating throughout the millennia, be love? Can we resolve this ancient paradox that has us trapped in duality—right versus wrong, good versus evil, love versus hate?
The Second Assumption resolves this confusion and moves us to a higher perspective, where we let go of the belief that Love is restricted to compassion, empathy, kindness, affection, or acceptance.
As Rumi said: Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there!
We’ll be back next month with a new understanding of the nature of unconditional Love and the Universe’s loving response to our requests.
