Hakuna Matata!.. It's our problem-free philosophy

Love IS...

... All the great spiritual traditions, philosophers and a growing proportion of bleeding edge scientific thinking, tell us that every single thing comes from this same Source, this alive and open Consciousness that all thought and all form appears in.

Enlightenment, Awakening, Self-realisation.... call it what you will, is simply the ability to experience this Source of everything everywhere - in nature, in our work, in an argument, in a traffic jam, on the TV - everywhere.

And when we begin to see this we see things working absolutely perfectly wherever we look - everything flowing perfectly with one single purpose - our happiness. We see that there is no separate 'will' at work here - this IS our Will. And we begin to remember our truly miraculous creative abilities - we come to recognise that we quite literally experience what we choose to see.

But everything we think we can 'do' to bring about this experience is a step away form it. After all, what journey could take us to where we already are?

The great good news is that love is free and it has not gone anywhere. In all of these aeons that you have been hiding from love, love is still here, it is still open, it is still waiting for your commitment, still waiting for you to say, “Yes, I give my life to the truth of love. I vow to let love live this life as it will, for better or worse, for richer or poorer.” The love that you search for everywhere is already present within you. It may be evoked by any number of people or events. A mountain can evoke this love. A sunset can evoke this love. But finally, you must realize you are this love. The source of all love is within you.... Gangaji

So what better way to rediscover this Source and heal our illusion of separateness than to simply allow ourselves to feel this connection, this Love, that already exists between us? What could be an easier, happier way than to let our attention rest in openness (without any preconception of what this is like) to what is really here now.... and just see what happens from there?

Love does not conquer all things, but it does set all things right.... As you come closer to a brother you approach me, and as you withdraw from him I become distant to you.... That is because the function of love is One.... ACIM Ch. 4

Truly no-one meets by chance; and everyone we meet... in the street, over the phone or in a weblog... gives us another opportunity to recognise who we really Are - to remember our Source.

Now how's that for a problem-free philosophy?
