NEW LOVES FOR OLD, FOR LOVE IS THE KEY TO THE CREATION OF THE UNIVERSE AND THE ONGOING EXISTENCE OF THE UNIVERSE, AND THE TRUE MEANING AND PURPOSE OF THE UNIVERSE. AND WHEN WE AT LAST AWAKEN TO THAT PROFOUND TRUTH, AND LIVE IT IN OUR VERY HEARTS AND OUR VERY LIVES, SO SHALL COME OUR SPIRITUAL HEALING OF OURSELVES, OF EACH OTHER, OF OUR COMMUNITIES AND OF OUR MOTHER EARTH, OUR HOLY GAIA.
NEW LOVES FOR OLD
Our natural desires for the opposite sex are a potential source of profound spiritual progress. If we can translate our natural desire for those we should not, or cannot, be physically involved with into platonic love, then we can leap forward. This will happen over the centuries ahead. Men and women will form beautiful platonic relationships.
I saw her the other day, that girl who stole my heart
I saw her with the boy who’d ripped my soul apart.
I watched them arm in arm, I saw sweet love in her face
I knew the truth and felt it, I'd surely lost the race.
It was a day of torment, a day for hiding tears
A day to merge with all days, descending down the years.
I watched them hand in hand, their sweet faces all aglow
I felt my life was over, I felt the bitter blow
But now days have gone by, and even long years have passed
Yet throughout that time I knew my love would always last.
And so it has, a deeper love, a love with no pain
A love for her and who she loves: love that seeks no gain.
I have transcended love, for love has been transmuted
I have transcended pain, for pain has been commuted
I understand love now, and rejoice in my knowing,
And so my knowing God is now forever growing
That old love for her awoke me deep down in my soul.
It is my new love for her that at last makes me whole.
