Love makes the world less worldly, less dense, more transparent to the divine dimension, the light of consciousness itself.
Amazing how one short sentence ties my brain in knots as I try to completely understand all it means. By looking at other sections of this part of the book, I think Tolle is saying the love allows us to see past the differences in people around us to see how we're the same. It pushes aside the density between people, the surface variances which make us feel more isolated from those in our lives (and even stranges).
It's easy to love our family (well, most of the time, hehe) -- and our children. Maybe that's because, as parents, we automatically embrace their humanity, their essence, and are able to overlook the differences between us...hm. What does it make you think? I know a big part of this section discusses God and His role as Love and Life. Since I believe in God and His goodness, I would have to agree -- but I'm curious to hear what others think. Do you believe that Love is necessarily tied to God? Or is Love your god in another form? And what does it mean to truly love another person?
Deep thoughts for a Tuesday....
