The Love of Jesus

The love of Jesus is the love of our own heart, but if the human self is attached to and becomes the default setting to live life by, it will be impossible to understand the love of our own heart.

When life begins, there aren’t any blocks developed to our heart of love. Slowly though as we age we develop these blocks to our heart of love by forming an identity of a human self. It’s not to deny our humanness, but non attachment to it is key to truly experiencing our heart of love. The more thought that is applied to our humanness the less in touch we are with our true essence to love. This is the love that Jesus spoke of and what he taught. The love of existence that through him would bring us to God, or the term he used “Father.”

You may ask, why do we need Jesus, why not go directly to God. Because through Jesus we are taught how to have a heart that is pure in love. Very few people have a heart that is pure because of the way that our self has been identified with and developed. Without a genuine heart of love its virtually impossible to go to God directly, this is what Jesus taught. Without getting wrapped up in religious aspects let’s take this at a practical level. Jesus has a heart that is pure love, he is divine in nature as we all are, but as it is told, his identity to a human self was never developed and his heart remained in a state of purity. He mediated, prayed, and ceaselessly submitted to God. His entire being, every waking moment of his existence was for the soul purpose to love. So there was no identity with a self to block the purity of his heart. Love isn’t a belief in something, it is our birthright, it is our true essence of self, without the nonsense that the Conditioned Mind makes up.

To understand the love of our heart it would behoove us to study what Jesus taught. Unless our human self is conditioned to a point where a prejudice has been formed and the love that he spoke of is being blocked. It will be very difficult to truly have a heart of love if this is the case because of this block. The human conditioned self will block out our true essence and our heart will not be pure enough to see its own love. Because of this, the human self will be attached to more and more and the default setting that life will be lived by and the pure love of the heart of Jesus will not be the love that is of our own heart.

I grew up in Newark, New Jersey, one of six children. I have been married for 25 years. I own a home, and I have two children. I have been at the same job for 28 years. I am the happiest I have ever been and it is all because of the Love that has always been in my life. I attribute all that has happened to me to that Love. None of what has transpired in the last five years of my life has anything to do with any accomplishments on my part. There was always a lot of love in our home as I grew up, but for reasons unknown to me at the time I was always in trouble. I was at the top of my brother-in-law’s “Who My Sister Shouldn’t Marry” list. I drank alcoholically, gambled, abused drugs and painkillers. I bounced from relationship to relationship. Even after I stopped abusing alcohol and drugs in 1987, my so-called outer troubles stopped, but my self-centered behavior never changed. All I did was substitute one compulsion for another. Although my addiction became more respectable—taking the form of material possessions—I was still trapped, migrating restlessly from one obsession to another. I went to Twelve Step meetings, derived some benefit from them, and then fell away. My loved ones got me into de-tox and rehab programs. But once I was released, the cycle of insatiable craving started all over again. This cycle seemed to work for me . . . until it didn’t. And then my life changed — not instantly or magically, but profoundly. I share this change in It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts. I discovered that I wasn’t dependent upon a substance or activity, but ruled by my ego. My need to reach outside myself for fulfillment was created by a false perception of deficiency. If this sense of lack didn’t exist in me, there wouldn’t have been a need to reach and grasp. My credentials for writing this book are simply that I live this change each day. My view of life is so different from the way it used to be. Through the practice outlined in my book, I have learned to quiet my mind enough to allow my heart to open. The quieter my mind becomes, the more Love becomes the default setting of my life. This is truly a modern-day miracle, a miracle that can happen to anyone who has the urge to change.
