Now – the path is to realize what love is – yes, it is that which happens between people for whom strong identification happens – but that has a strong element of ego in it, though it also transcends ego. Love means connection – and connection is the extension of consciousness to include that which objectively is separate from ourselves, yet in loving extension, the experience of self now includes that which is being perceived. Love happens from the heart, and heart-energy is where form and consciousness energy are equal and since it is not mind-energy, there is no ego in it. Look about you – open your heart – love the trees and the birds, the clouds in the sky, those you pass by, EVERYTHING. This is the ecstatic life, the mystic’s life. It is how we can radiate like the sun, lighting upon everything, and is how we are truly meant to live.
