“Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is a supreme creative act.” Ram Dass
Love is the label we use for the energy of Being. It flows from within us into the outer world of separation. Our only purpose is to be its conduit. As it enters the inner channel of our awareness it is whole, perfect and pure. Being love as Ram Dass expresses it here is allowing this God-energy to flow through us into the world around us without imprinting it with our thoughts of worry and fear, something that happens all to easily. Otherwise, love will, paradoxically, express itself in the world as one degree or another of hatred. Our task is to work on ourselves, not on others, so that we’ll stop turning love into hate. There is far too much of that in our world already. By working on ourselves we can be the catalysts of real world change.
