Love is All There Is
By Ken LaDéroute
Love is the continual, inexorable, evolutionary progression toward reunion with the Godhead.
With God’s outbreath came the Big Bang. Along with the creation of countless divine sparks of individualized units of pure
consciousness, the outflowing of Her Love began. This Divine Will and expansion still roars through the universe in the form of
Divine Light and Sound. It will end when all souls become refined and return to their Creator. This inbreath, is God’s love and
grace for His Creation.
Love: the only religion
Love is simply the pull towards a reunification with our Creator. The highest form of love is the love of God. It is the glue
that draws us to the Divinity we see in others. It is a recognition that is simply a reflection of the Divinity we see and feel
Since God created man and woman for Her pleasure, She also wants us to be happy. In our evolutionary progression toward growth,
we learn to leave behind what is nonessential. As we learn to sublimate our egos and become more surrendered and comfortable with
our newfound Self-realization, we begin to see life in a more loving way. In releasing the ego and its hold on ours minds, we
find a new invincibility. We begin to see that love is all there is.
A New Reality
Seeing reality in this new way, without the burdens of conditioned responses, addictions, fears, neuroses, anxieties, and
judgments, our hearts begin to open, and we begin to feel and come to recognize the love for all in all. In this understanding,
we find a quiet patience, simplicity and surrender.
In this process of subtraction, surrender, compassion and refinement, we begin to understand the flow of life. Through
conscious meditation, a loosening of the ego’s hold on our minds, eliminating compulsive negative thinking, and finally learning
to cherish others, we begin to sense a true security and invincibility. This security, or ground of being, is the silent anchor
we feel when we are in union with our Higher Selves. Our desire to feel safe and complete in a relationship is just this simple
‘ground of being’ that we seek to find with others.
When we, as individualized souls become localized on the earthly plane, we struggle and take on the cycle of rebirth in order
to learn and become more refined. We come back as male and female in order to completely experience and understand both
polarities of God’s manifest nature. After which, these polarities are sublimated and transmuted into the One.
The eternal dance between souls is a co-mingling of emotion, desire, dysfunction and drama. True union is achieved when each
partner begins to think a little more of the other, rather than of his or herself. This can be achieved through awareness,
meditation and mindfulness.
Here and Now
The universe is made up of energy. I believe this energy is love. This outpouring of love awaits us each day when we wake up,
and it is there when we go to sleep. If we can muster the courage to relinquish the ego’s control over the mind, overcome our
conditioned responses, loosen compulsive thinking, burnout past karmas and impressions, we finally learn to be intensely present,
and clearly see truth in our lives. We then begin to love all of creation and realize that love is all there is.
