“What Love Is”

“But she could not continue to exist under the false, hard light of mental man. On the polarities of the cross of the material-thing, she would be sacrificed. She could not truly be perceived as something other than himself. Only in that state of awareness wherein an oceanic unity prevailed, making all its own, could she present herself. Identity not distinction was the formula. For she was a reflection of his own inner half, unable to be separated, to be made distinct without destroying his awareness of innate Being. He knew, even at this youthful age, that love for another was truly always love for the Self. There was no “other” person or thing in the apparent wide universe. All was One. And love was an essential part of the schooling of the soul, for it taught the lesson of coniunctio oppositorum, the unity of opposites. By uniting male and female, both residing within the human heart as polarities, one could forge the never-ending circle, attaining Oneness with the Absolute. Males and females contained within themselves all the opposites: the good and the bad, the light and the dark, the inner and the outer. As long as human beings posited these dualities, they would be horribly crucified on them.”
