Love is freedom, and the intention of freedom for all souls. Love delights in Divine being and its goodness. It delights in the goodness of another soul as Divine. Love is the essence of everything and appreciates the uniqueness of each aspect of creation.
Freedom and Divine Goodness of the Soul
As souls created in the spirit of the Divine, we experience the dimensional universe through varying experiences of incarnation. Our soul is born in love, and that love enables its full freedom to experience the universe. Within incarnate life on Earth for thousands of years, the human freedom of the soul has been veiled in a fear-based consciousness of conflict, control, and separation. Currently, it is the soul’s journey to rediscover its full freedom. And in the process of once again being its essence, it delights in the freedom of other souls.
When the soul through the heart and body awakens to its true Divine awareness, its intention is to be its essence which is love. In being its own freedom, it rejoices in the freedom of nature and animal life, and it loves all as the unique expression of the Divine. For humans on Earth, the deepest part of the soul journey experience is to share this journey with other souls. Through love, the soul sees the Divine goodness, uniqueness, and freedom in the other. It has deep joy in experiencing the other’s gifts. The soul desires that another soul experience the full being of its Divine essence and mission in the same way as its own Divine being. This unity is love. In love, there is no separation, just unique soul aspects abiding in the “we.” It is one unity forever.
Love Rejoices in the Goodness and Happiness of the Other
Love desires the best for another soul no matter what the life journey brings. Love receives great joy in the other’s accomplishments as in one’s own. However, it is not a vicarious identification. In love, one does not use the other’s gifts, but only receives intrinsic pleasure in the joy that is the other. Love gives because its essence is the happiness of the other, and the intent that the other is the fullness of their true self in the Divine. Only the ego, and its needs and fears, give to receive conditionally. Love is unconditional. Love is not of time—it is forever with no beginning and no end. It expands infinitely into deeper and deeper levels of purity. It is a joy that never ceases. It becomes brighter and brighter in its expansion. This is what we desire for the other. When we give in this way, we receive. In love, the giving and receiving become one. The giver is the receiver and the receiver is the giver. It is a mutual harmonic flow. There is no restriction or conflict–just pure synchronic fluidity.
Love desires the perfect well-being of the other. It listens, takes action, and enjoys being with the other—always supporting the full freedom of the other that it loves. At its most profound level, it loves just being with the other in shared experience.
Love is Known in the Soul
Love can only be known and felt in the soul. The lower human mind can understand something of love, and can point to it without a full knowing. At times, the soul will inform the mind of the essence of love and the mind will attempt to communicate it in words, through the senses, or in body language. Love is beyond our poetic and mystical language. It is a knowing, being, and feeling of the soul. At times, the infinite frequencies of love translated in the physical can resonate in words. For example, we can find this in the mystical poetry of John of the Cross such as in the Spiritual Canticle, stanzas 14 and 15 as follows:
My Beloved, the mountains,
and lonely wooded valleys,
and resounding rivers,
the whistling of love-stirring breezes,
the tranquil night
at the time of the rising dawn,
the supper that refreshes and deepens love.
These words convey the infinite love between the soul and the Divine and between soul and soul. Within our incarnate Earth journey, Earth, soul, and Divine become one. In order to touch infinite Divinity, we must love the incarnate frequency domain that we are in—our current human experience is of Earth. When we are in unity resonance with Earth, our awareness expands the infinite dimensional universe and the infinite dimensionless spiritual realms. We are in unity with God. Then in this profound soul journey on Earth, our joy is with sharing this in love with another soul. As we transform into the fullness of our Divine awareness, we will live our soul love fully in the physical through the heart, mind, and body.
May we all open to the full freedom of our soul that is love. In that freedom, we will love one another in a way that supports the full freedom of the other to be their Divine consciousness on Earth. This is the joy and delight in the Divine goodness of the infinite soul.
