On Love

Posted by Phillip Gordon on Wednesday, July 6, 2011
In this world today I hear a great deal expressed around the notion that at the centre of everything is love. How do people know this.  Are they on the phone to The Great Mystery and recording it's every thought and notion.  I have always been under the impression, have come to an understanding, that at the centre of everything is everything, if it were not so it would not be here in the manifest world.  It may be true that we are in world short of love and in a great need to learn the art of love.  And through the course of this step we need to make it the centre of all life.  That I can accept.  However to call God, Spirit, The Mystery love, is a childish notion based on that lack. 

Love is something that we must choose to live from, to have as way of existence, yet to say that love is all there is may lead one down a blind street.  None of us can really know what is at the centre of it all, that is why it is named The Mystery, that is why it is spoken of as the eternal night, the ever being darkness. As it is something we can never fully comprehend.  What we can do is align ourselves and make the relationship  with The Mystery a primary state of being.  We can let that life force touch us and influence us, be guided and shaped by that relationship, yet to attribute love to the basis of all life is a narrow blind obsession. 

In Hermetic teachings the divine is called The All. That is because it is all that there is.  The All has no separation between good and bad, hate and love, up and down, in and out.  It is The All so contains all.  What remains for us, what our task then  becomes is to embrace that All and live life in the dark.  Love then becomes a choice, an active force that we embrace to live our lives by.
