In Love I Trust

The only thing I desire is non-desire. I am everything, and I am nothing. In the very essence of God, I am love. I cannot discover my gifts, because my gifts are still discovering me. In each and every minute I am born anew; continuously unfolding from the unknown vastness of my soul. My vision is to emphasize a deeper more profound love, and a way to apply it to a world that is too often experienced as loveless. If I am able to make a difference in just one person’s life, I will leave my body comforted by a trust that my life has been lived not in vain. Douglas W. Prideaux

The Grandeur of Fruits

It is said that a tree is known by the fruit it bears. Or, by his deeds a man shall be known. These two bits of insight have important validity, but they somehow imply negativity. In other words, their meanings seem to lean towards the idea of bad or wrong behavior; and that through this behavior a person can be known. When such verses start with the premise that certain behaviors are wrong, the idea of “right” behavior is born. This is an age old device that has been used to keep people separated from themselves, their truth, and the truth of others. Why is it that when we experience a wonderful very special person, these verses do not come to mind? Should they not also apply to beautiful people, that if somebody feels honest, or trustworthy, or loving…that one could comfortably assume that they are the bearer of their good fruits? I think so. What goes for the goose, must also go for the gander. dwp

Being In Love

The reason why love cannot be found is because love is not lost. People are lost, so it is actually they that cannot be found. The problem is not with love, it is with the inability to realize love. Love is not an invention, it is a creation. So, the idea is not to find love, it is to BE love. As you become love, a melting process begins; you become intertwined. As love surrounds your entire being, an experience of intense profound togetherness happens; and you are in love. dwp
