We want Love.
Of course, we want love. Love is such a great thing. Without love, life would be colourless, bland and perhaps not quite worth the journey. How do we get it? How do we know when we have it?
In the 1988 film 'Dangerous Liaison' starring John Malkovich, Michelle Pfeiffer and Glenn Close, a matriach in the film sat Madame de Tourvel (Michelle Pfeiffer) down and advised her that the way that men and women love is different. When women love, women give their all. For women, love is long and deep. When men love, it is something else, she said. Her lesson, 'Do not be disappointed or expect the love to be the same.'
I have however known men who love long and deep, keeping the memory of their deceased wives alive long after they have passed on. I have known men who are callous and flippant with love as well. And, I have known women who are the former and latter. So, it seems to elude us, this perfect model for love.
Perhaps, until we find ourselves, we cannot find Love, or love.
I am a spiritual person walking an earthly journey. When I worked on this book, I asked many times how we can balance the duality in us. How do I balance Love and love?
LOVE (the BIG Love, the Universal Love, the Love for Humanity) is not incongruous with being human, or desiring to be Gorgeous, Sexy & Rich! Wasn't it Chardin who said that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. And Reverend Matthew Fox in his book, The Coming of the Cosmic Christ, who said that it is time to return 'lust' to its rightful place! By that he means that we can be passionate about living and being human as well, even as we work out our spiritual walk on earth.
So, that's it exactly. I choose in my human experience to be Gorgeous, Sexy and Rich! I also choose to be compassionate and giving. I choose to have passionate love and I choose to be passionate about LIFE itself. I choose LOVE and love.
I choose the Human Experience of being Gorgeous, Sexy & Rich! You can too.
'We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.'
Teilhard de Chardin (French Geologist, Priest, Philosopher and Mystic, 1881-1995)
