Love (The Perfect Matrimony)
|Written by Samael Aun Weor|
God, as FATHER, is WISDOM. God, as MOTHER, is LOVE. God, as Father, resides in the Eye of Wisdom. The Eye of Wisdom is situated between the eyebrows. God, as Love, is found in the Heart-Temple.
To love, how beautiful it is to love. Only the great souls can and know how to love. Love is infinite tenderness... Love is the life that palpitates in every atom as it palpitates in every Sun.
Love cannot be defined because it is the Divine Mother of the World; it is what happens to us when we are really in love.
Love is felt in the depths of the heart; it is a delicious personal experience, it is a fire that consumes, it is divine wine, a delight to those who drink it. A simple perfumed handkerchief, a letter, a flower, originates tremendous intimate restlessness, exotic ecstasy, ineffable voluptuousness in the depths of the Soul.
No one has ever been able to define love; one must experience it, one must feel it. Only those who are deeply in love really know that which is called love.
The Perfect Matrimony is the union of two beings who really know how to love.
The Perfect Matrimony
For there to be true love it is necessary that the man and woman adore each other on all the seven great Cosmic Planes. For there to be love, it is necessary that there exist a true communion of Souls in the three spheres of thought, feeling and will.
When the two beings vibrate in affinity in their thoughts, feelings and volitions, then the Perfect Matrimony takes place in the seven Planes of Cosmic Consciousness. There are people married on the Physical and Etheric planes, but not on the Astral plane. Others are married on the Physical, Etheric and Astral planes, but not on the Mental plane; each one thinks in his own way; the woman has a religion and the man another; they do not agree in their thoughts, etc., etc., etc. There are married couples who have an affinity in the worlds of thought and feeling, but are absolutely opposite in the world of the will. These couples are in constant conflict, they are not happy. The Perfect Matrimony must take place on the Seven Planes of Cosmic Consciousness. There are marriages that do not even reach the Astral plane; then even sexual attraction does not exist; these are true failures. These types of marriages are merely marriages of convenience. Some people are living married life on the Physical plane with a certain partner, and on the mental plane they live married life with a different partner. Rarely in life do we find a Perfect Matrimony. For there to be love, it is necessary to have affinity in the thoughts, affinity of feelings and of will. Where there is arithmetic reckoning, there is no love. Unfortunately, in modern life love smells of a bank account, commodities and celluloid. In homes where there are only debits and credits, love does not exist. When love leaves the heart, it hardly returns. Love is a very elusive child.
The marriage made without love, based only on economical or social interests, is really a sin against the HOLY SPIRIT. These types of marriages fail inevitably. Lovers frequently confuse desire with love, and the worst of the matter is that they get married believing that they are in love. Having consummated the sexual act, carnal passion is satisfied, then comes the disenchantment. What remains is the terrible reality. Those who are in love should analyze themselves before getting married, in order to know whether they really are in love. Passion is easily confused with love. LOVE AND DESIRE ARE ABSOLUTE OPPOSITES.
The one who is really in love is capable of giving even his last drop of blood for the one he adores. Examine yourself before getting married. Do you feel capable of giving even the last drop of blood for your adored one? Would you be capable of giving your life so that your beloved could live? Reflect and meditate.
Is there true affinity of thought, feeling and will with the being you adore? Remember that if complete affinity does not exist, then your marriage instead of being a heaven, will be a true hell. Do not allow yourself to be led by desire. Kill not only desire, but the very shadow of that tempting tree of desire.
Love begins with a flash of delicious sympathy, it is substantiated with infinite tenderness, and is crystallized in supreme adoration.
A Perfect Matrimony is the union of two beings who adore each other absolutely. In love there are no estimates or bank accounts. If you are making estimates and calculations, it is because you are not in love. Reflect before taking the great step. Are you really in love? Be careful of the illusion of desire. Remember, the flame of desire consumes life and then the tremendous reality of death remains. Contemplate the eyes of the being you adore, lose yourself within the delight of his/her pupils. But, if you want to be happy, do not allow yourself to be carried away by desire.
Man or woman in love, do not confuse love with passion. Analyze yourself deeply. It is urgent to know if he/she belongs to you in Spirit. It is necessary to know if you are in complete affinity with her/him in the three worlds of thought, feeling and will.
Adultery is the cruel result of lack of love. The woman who is truly in love would prefer death before committing adultery. The man who adulterates is not in love.
LOVE IS TERRIBLY DIVINE. THE BLESSED GOD-MOTHER OF THE WORLD IS THAT WHICH IS CALLED LOVE..
With the awesome fire of LOVE we can transform ourselves into Gods, to enter majestically in the AMPHITHEATRE OF COSMIC SCIENCE.
