My Journey into Divine Love
I’ve sought truth for a long time and my journey into the ways of truth has led me into divine love. In this upside down world, this love is rare and a magnificent treasure. Diving into it has consumed me lately, for it’s part of the divinity of God that we receive and give. The more I learn of it and experience it; the more I desire it with every fiber of my being and for it to consume everything.
This weekend, it will be a year since I became a vegetarian, and in February of next year, a vegan.
Becoming a vegetarian bloomed out of the Holy Spirit’s instruction. Very briefly, I learned that to ascend to the realm of divine love, which is life-giving and contains no death, I couldn’t be a soul feasting on death, thus full of death, thus tied to the death realm. But a spirit feasting on life, thus full of life, thus connected to the realm of life.
As for becoming a vegan, I saw a documentary on the meat and dairy industry. It’s an industry full of cruelty with no care for the animals; an industry totally void of any kind of love. At that moment, in seeing images that still haunt me, I became a vegan. My spirit fully rejected the hell I was witnessing. And that spilled over into no leather, products tested on animals, and so on. Being a vegan, from the heart, is about love. It’s choosing love over convenience, habit, culture, tradition, or for a lustful taste that lasts a moment (which actually wasn’t the meat and dairy in itself, but all that was added to it, one of many lies.)
Since my awakening to divine love, I’ve stood amazed at my prior blindness and lack of love. I also am a bit amazed that the “religious” nation isn’t mostly vegan. If God is love, and they “serve” and “love” God, wouldn’t such clear acts of cruelty be absent from their lives, lives dedicated to a God of love? I’m amazed because so many profess to know God, yet don’t seem to know divine love. But this is what I’ve learned about divine love, we can only grasp it, if we allow it to become a part of us, that means a change from the inside out.
Since my exchange to feasting on life and not death, my understanding of divine love has exploded because I’m allowing divine love to move into my life. The understanding and experience of it is transforming my thoughts, desires, behaviors, words, and actions. It’s a whole new reality in which to dwell. It’s moving into the higher realm of the spirit where God abides and no longer of the lower realm of the carnal mind of mankind lost in darkness.
With the peeking of divine love into my life, this year has been one of significant purging of my mind and soul. Divine love is the fire of God. It purifies us as we start to live by it because we can’t love and abide in blindness, suffering, cruelty, and death. There was grit and grim lining my soul I was unaware of, but when I choose to love God’s living creation with my life, I started a transformation that has blessed every aspect of my life. Divine love in a marriage is miraculous and beyond beautiful. Now, almost a year later of purging and renewal, it seems a new connection is being made by this divine love, a living connection in which I sense living waters can flow.
Divine love is love with a part of divinity. This love is received from the One who is truly divine, the heavenly Father. It’s a love that reflects the characteristics of His divinity.
To move into divine love, we have to desire it. It’s gentle. Divine love is like a dance between two entities. It’s a give and take of a fluid movement. It never forces itself upon another, but is given as it is received, and received as it is given.
Divine love is holy. Thus to be able to receive it and give it, we have to be purified in our souls that we may be connected to it. A corrupt mind can’t produce loving thoughts, thus actions. A corrupt soul can’t hold purity, thus give it.
Divine love is life. In it there is no death, because it creates perfect righteousness.
It’s liquid light.
It’s like liquid because it’s like water, which is like spirit. Spirit is contained within the human soul, like water is contained in a body. Like water, when we possess this divine love we can give it to another, it’s a cup of living water to another soul. It’s living because it is coming from God’s divinity, which is life. But like a cup of water, it must be received and taken in. As a cup of water can be rejected, so can divine love. We have to desire it to receive it. That means we have to be willing to be changed by it. This means making changes in our lives, lifestyle, and choices.
It’s light because it’s a reflection of the character of God; pure, undefiled, holy, righteous, perfect, and of spirit and truth. By it, we have eyes of light and see with the right perspective, thus respond with a higher love to situations and people. It contains no darkness, no emptiness, and no lack, thus no fear. Love of the human realm is full of fear because it’s full of lack; lack of true care. Divine love is the only love that fully drives out fear in every area, because it contains no lack as it cares perfectly.
This type of love only comes from our perfect heavenly Father through the Holy Spirit. It comes through the Holy Spirit, for He is the spirit that purifies our souls by truth. The Holy Spirit is a spirit that if we desire truth, will come to us and instruct us. And because truth is grounded in divine love, we learn about love.
In this purification by the truth, we are able to connect to this divine love; to give and receive it. With a pure mind and soul, we can be connected to the Holy Heavenly Father in divine love. We receive as a part of our soul, His perfect love for us. And we love Him with all our mind, soul, heart, and strength as our lives are changed in accordance with His love, our minds function by this love, and all we do serves this love.
Once purified, we fully receive the love that God desires to give us. In this we are completed, filled, and never lacking, thus without fear.
In this connection, we can truly confess to the Most High that “we love each other” in all sincerity and truth. There is nothing more powerful than when we can say these four words to another out of divine love, especially God. It is the fluid connection expressed in the infinity symbol; two spheres (spirits) coming together at a point of perfection, divine love, between each other. In this connection, eternal life exists.
In this joining, we truly become children of the Most High. We receive a connection to the fount of living waters, liquid light. And, we become of the light to give the light.
I have much to learn, but is there any way better that to receive and give divine love?
