In January of 1998 I had a profound spiritually transformative experience. In the middle of the night I was awakened by an aunt who had made her transition three weeks earlier. She came to tell me to, “love more.” And, during her visit I was enveloped in the most indescribable love I have ever felt. It was far beyond human love. The only word that might possibly describe it is celestial. I was so high from this love I don’t think my feet touched the ground for a week. Years later, from my research I learned that it can take up 20 years to process and integrate a spiritually transformative experience, and here it was happening to me right on cue.
In 2018, I began to focus on this topic of “love being all there is” when it occurred to me that the depression I had been experiencing wasn’t so much a depression, as it was homesickness. I longed to feel that amazing “celestial” love again. Where had it gone? Why couldn’t I feel it again?
One morning I was meditating when I had a flash of insight about this phrase. It came to me that “love is all there is” because at our core we are drops of eternal divine intelligence, or God having a human experience through each of us. This loving intelligence animates life and is the eternal force that leaves when the body expires. It loves us as self, as we are all one and the same in essence. And, it is ALL there is because without it there could be no-thing.
As part of our human experience we forget who we really are. The emotional problems of life in a physical body blot out the awareness of this love. But, when we make our transition out of the physical world we are freed from this build-up of emotions and we experience the truth again, and that amazing love again. This is why many spiritually transformative experiences have an element of unity consciousness or divine love to them. In that blissful moment we are freed from the layer of “forgetfulness” to experience that love really is all there is.
We can manage the “emotional build-up” and strengthen our connection to divine love every day if we practice meditation. Having a daily practice of meditation allows us to get quiet and see where the “build-up” is, so we know what part of our lives need attention. We may never have the blow-out high of a spiritually transformative experience, but at least we know the truth that we are all headed home, and when we get there we will bask in the full force of that amazing love that cannot be described.
