The Genesis of Love

posted by Guy Finley

What is immortal? Love, God’s Love — that which is not connected to a form. It isn’t a person’s face, it isn’t a passage of music — it is that which produces those things. We are intended to be changed by Love, so that a genesis can take place within us that is not the product of us trying to control a beginning or an end for the sake of some imagined plan, but so that we as human beings can be part of that which is immortal. We want to become what it is that we have the potential to be, and what we have the potential to be is a participant in that genesis, always becoming something different.

But we push away the very genesis that is required for us to discover what is immortal: Love — that which isn’t afraid of what we are afraid of, that which has no agenda concerning what anyone else is or does. Why? Because that Love has its own life that isn’t conditional, that is never-endingly producing a new beginning.

Begin the beautiful work of releasing the nature that is consistently trying to control its environment as well as the people in it. Start with realizing that there’s no moment in which, whether you’re with one person or a crowd of people, there’s nothing that you’re going to see, there’s nothing that’s going to pass in front of you that isn’t there for the purpose of introducing you to what you have yet to discover is true about yourself. Eventually you will want the perpetual truth of yourself — which is what the genesis is consistently showing — not “you” the way you take yourself to be, but rather a completely different order of your self that is never not being made in the image of Love.
