In last week’s blog entry, I spoke of how Lasting Love is kindled. When we are able to look past the bodily designations…the material status, and see the very essence of God in them that is in us, then the fire is ignited.
When we are with that person and want to bask in that Lasting Love, there are ways to experience it. One way is being in Silence together…or chanting or constant prayer as a way of honoring the very essence which has kindled the Lasting Love in each of you…or being in Silence in a Sacred Place and taking in the essence of the Sacredness.
It’s also important to note that this Lasting Love is not just relegated to others. This Love can be experienced between you and God, as well. The Sufi Masters speak of it all the time. They speak of this Love as an extension of God. Being able to see this Love everywhere they turn is the very thing that the poems of Rumi and Hafiz speak of.
To learn more about this subject, I recommend a book called “Love is a Fire and I Am Wood,” by Llewellyn Vaughan Lee, which speaks of Lasting Love eloquently and at length.
