When you are in conflict or doubt, or afraid, when you lose hope or lose people that you depend upon, move beyond the pain and fear, there is an awareness there. An awareness that has always been there. In your loneliness and suffering and darkness and fear, silently behind it the awareness is waiting for us to return. This awareness is the field of consciousness from which all life came, the absolute energy that precedes all and is beyond all and is within all. It is within you.
We all have this in common but we have been convinced that we are alone, but this energy that compels one cell to become two, that heals wounds, that spins quarks and planets, is within us all. And all language can do is rest on top of it, or point to it, never really describing it, this force, this undeniable compulsion to come together, we all know that it's there and we all know when it's absent and we all know that we must be open to it now. And in spite of its ethereal and indefinable nature, we all know that it's love.
