Love is the cosmic gateway to deeper understanding. It's forms are many. Love inspires both bondage and liberation. It requires deep reflection and must be experienced first hand. Love is the great teacher. Through love, the seeker is guided back to the Source of all existence. The Source is all that is real. That which flows out from it, flows back to it.
Cycles are endless until they are understood and thus transcended. Love is the thread which runs through everything. Follow the thread of love toward liberation.
The thread extends beyond the boundaries of time. It weaves a tapestry through every dimension. The thread expands outside the scope of comprehension.
And though the Universe seems to appear and disappear, flashing on and off, through existence and non-existence, at once real and unreal, to an invisible heartbeat - love is constant. The thread forever unbroken.
And as time is turned upon itself, unraveling entire histories, revealing mysteries, the power of love reigns supreme, its essence remains Infinite.
Love is the true Messiah personified throughout time, through many incarnations, love is both death and resurrection. Love is the only true redemption.
