A description from within...

Love is all that's left when all else has fallen away.

It's not a feeling, not a state, not a passing experience.

It is the ground of all things, the open space that holds all forms as they arise and pass.

It has no opposite - it holds all apparent opposites, allows them all to be.

You can't say what it is - you can't say what it is not. In the end, you can't say anything.

And yet all words are held here too...

The game of life...

That you'll love to win, love to lose, love to watch, love to relinquish...

And love to BE.

All those words interchangeably: Presence, Awareness, Love, Being....... All are simply words, serving as pointers to this, expressing the Inexpressible

If you don't see the 'love' aspect; awareness and being could easily called indifferent.

So I guess the question is how does awareness love?

Using the word 'love' in a way that's different to how it's usually used. Love is not a state, a feeling, or even a quality because then it would have an opposite!

It is a word that points to this open space of awareness, the open space that holds everything - every thought, every feeling, and every sensation.

The word 'love' points to the inseparability of awareness with all that appears in awareness.

Awareness and contents of awareness are not-two - nondual - and you could say that is 'loved' - beyond our understanding of the word 'love'.

It seems bang on, love is the ground of everything, nothing could exist without it...but...that for some reason seems a bit disappointing, like love should care or have some active beneficial quality that we have been in praise of all these years, when using that word.

For the sake of communication, the words are only temporary.

And if words are too much = not enough, go watch "The tree of life" by Terence Malick and experience IT/love/the All & Nothing beyond story, beyond time!
An incredible movie!


Creation, destruction, the preciousness and fragility of life, the non-existence of the separate self, the illusion of time and space, the mystery of love and the mystery of death, the intimacy of human experience and the incomprehensible vastness of the universe - somehow all of this has been condensed into one movie. The Tree of Life. Go see it.
