It is erroneously believed that love is something only
manifested betwixt lovers; but, true love is a state of
grace in plenitude with all existence.
Commonly, humans understand love as the relationship between
lovers or the feeling that causes it to arise, but from the
viewpoint of Fa-Men-Chuan, it is completely different. To
clarify this viewpoint, we will further expound. We hope the
following will be fully comprehended and give birth to true
love within our lives. Learning to be happy, and bring
happiness to all.
The majority of relationships arise due to attraction,
desire, passion, lust, obsession, biological need,
loneliness, etcetera. Sometimes not even for the above, but
only, as is commonly said, "to have a good time",
understanding neither the law of attraction nor the
responsibility it carries. We note the numbers of your
couples unprepared to assume the role of parenthood.
Emotionally, these youth lack sufficient maturity. Many are
obligated to abandon school or higher studies without
completing their preparation, in order to face life with
neither training nor profession. They go on to be victims of
poorly paid jobs and must tolerate many injustices due to
their inadequate education.
Many grandparents must assume the responsibility for the
care of their grandchildren, being that the parents are
incapable of maintaining them. This leads the youth to feel
mistreated by society. They assume rebellious and violent
attitudes toward their family, their partner, or their
children whom they blame for the loss of their liberty or
failures. The parents, who, by virtue of their age, are
supposed to have more experience, education, preparation,
and good judgment, are often the patrons of the unhappiness
of these young couples. We have known parents who encourage
their sons to have sexual relations and impregnate young
ladies, in order to prove their masculinity. Sometimes, "I
love you", is lust dressed up in pretty words, or stupidity
may be hidden behind the saying, "The experience of being
Sex can be enjoyed if one possesses the control, ability,
and emotional maturity. But, take care, because he who plays
with fire, usually gets burned. Be cautious before entering
into deeper practices of The Tao of Love, or Tantra;
control, knowledge, ability, and maturity are prerequisites.
One risks unplanned pregnancy, and the precipitate
responsibility of parenthood.
Parenthood should only be sought when certain of one's
partner. One must be selective, unhurried, searching for the
person, preparing and cultivating one's inner self; having
achieved both, choose the moment carefully. Remember, a
child should be the sublime aspiration of the conscience and
the extension of the Love of Creation in compliance with the
Cosmic Plan which Originated us. In this moment, when one
has prepared oneself, the relationship of lovers becomes a
sublime ecstasy of realization.
The environment or society distorts the arousal of Love,
amplifying simple affection as the model of the natural
evolution of intimate relationships. To say, "I can't live
without So and So", could be habit, passion, obsession,
dependence, or biological need. Sometimes, regular
psychological therapy could be the solution.
Society patronizes relationships in excessively young
persons as early on as childhood, by way of Sex-Ed programs.
These programs are very good providers of biological
information, but provide no moral formation. Moral formation
is supposed to be covered by religious information; yet, we
note that as time passes, the influence of religion upon
people's consciences wanes ever more. I do not oppose
religion; to the contrary, but religious moral information
is based upon fear of sin. Hell is the consequence of sin,
and the reward for following fear as the path of life, is
The Sex-Ed programs don't educate, they only inform
regarding the sexual relation from the biological point-of-view.
They don't offer the formative moral process in either the
social, individual, or spiritual sense. These programs
augment the curiosity of the youth; bear in mind that youth
has always been characterized by a very vivid imagination;
suggestions such as, "When you have sexual intercourse, use
a condom", serve to animate them.
To this must be added the stimulation from adults for the
young boys to acquire a girlfriend in primary school. As the
child progresses to higher courses, they induce sexual
relations, indicating that sexual intercourse is normal,
only insisting upon the use of the condom. We do not oppose
sexual intercourse, as it is magical, it is unique, it is a
When the youth approach this type of relationship, the
majority are too immature emotionally to understand or
manage their feelings; they are overwhelming for his/her age,
the youth cannot restrain him/herself. The game terminates
in unplanned pregnancy, forcing the youth to face the series
of responsibilities implicit in parenthood, a state they for
which they are unprepared. The prospects are tenuous when
projected into the future.
Upon this basis brought to us by the system or modus vivendi,
we attainemotional maturity as "paralytic of the soul",
perceiving reality with the vision of a spiritual dwarf.
The word love is a word so frequently touted, that by its
misuse or application it has lost its real significance.
Historically, the teacher MO (MO-TSE), 400 BC, used it as
the base of his entire teaching, creating the philosophy of
"Universal Love". Christian philosophy, expounded by Jesus
Nazerene, based itself upon the phrase "Love one another".
We see that both saw love as the base of good relations. We
see it as the very reason for existence.
Love is the development of conscience, this projects to all
of Creation, and it is Man, by his study, life, and
meditation on the power of Love, who establishes the path
toward the realization of the greatest glory of the Spirit,
When two lovers amplify the conception of affection, with
the development of conscience of the conquest of the light
of the spirit, it could be called Love. This is dual. It is
delicious and painful, it is agony and ecstasy, it is the
meeting of heaven and earth, the known and the unknown, it
is the limit of matter and conscience, the depths and the
heights. Its roots are in the earth, it is the pain and
agony; and, its branches seek the heavens, it is the sublime
liberation of ecstasy. Then, we live love as the reason for
existence, and sex as a responsibility.
It is the product of the two, it is the delight in the
forms, the undulations, the folds, the protuberances, the
lines of the forms and the fragrance of the lover, it is the
extension of the plenitude of the universe. They are two
polarities; one is sex and the other is meditation, which is
realized through communion by way of the origin. Sex can
cause pain, meditation brings joy in the reality of ecstasy
and contemplation. "Love" is a rose bush; it has beauty and
fragrance, but accompanied by thorns. To uncover its secret,
sex must be transformed into a meditation of ecstasy and
divine realization. Within it there is no degradation, no
humiliation, no frustration, no loss of dignity; there is
only complete satisfaction in the essence of the divine, if
it is converted into a Supreme Loving Relationship.
Love is the perfect relationship between objects and beings;
it is harmony between creation and destruction; it is
synonymous of Illumination. One should be patient, sincere,
study it, dream of it, invoke it, have hope; the path is
certain, it has been walked by hundreds of masters in the
past, many travel it yet. But rush not, nor be you anxious.
If the couple evolves by way of meditation, the objective
being the search for the light of the spirit, wherein is
revealed the Supreme Love, then the relationship shall be
converted into a prolongation of the Universal Love.
Although there be passion, lust, or sexual desire, these
manifestations shall be great, Love shall be the measure,
not affection. Affection is limited, Love is not. If this
does not occur so, the relationship shall continue to be
naught but affection or custom.
Parting from the principle that the final objective of all
is love, it is the spirit itself personifying itself, thus
we understand that "It is the principle which has enlivened
all the created and the not-created". This is difficult to
understand intellectually, as the mind must measure it
within an existential and conceptual framework, yet it
cannot be completely understood via thought. To know it, it
is necessary to go beyond the limits of thought. It is the
principle and objective of creation, it is the state beyond
the limits of being or not-being. Beyond all measures,
incomparable, beyond all that is known. To unite yourself to
it, you must penetrate by the path to the Immortal;
Meditation, the Void, the light, Samadhi, the Eternal.
Often, we tend to consider love within the concept of a
romantic relationship, indeed, what is actually evaluated is
passion, desire, competition, the need for possession. We
have converted it into a caricature of the relationship and
existence. Within the common framework in our society,
falling in love involves not the feeling of love, but rather
that of passion.
The romantic relationship is a social measure, called love.
In truth, love ought to be an extension of the individual in
the complement of existence without sex being the measure of
the relationship. If you wish to live love, forget about it;
integrate yourself in meditation. Love grants liberty and
plenitude, existence without limits or boundaries. It is a
mystical experience, not sex. It is associated neither to
romantic relationships nor with falling in love; it is an
inner experience, eternal, not ephemeral. To say "I am in
love with you, or, I love you" is, in most cases, a
biological caprice or egoism.
Love arrives as the effect of happiness. It is the fragrance
of a silent heart in search of its inner solitude, calmed
and meditative. It brings one, then, "To be happy and make
others happy." It is not a relationship, but a state of
being. One is love. It is the Light, the fragrance of
self-knowledge, discovery of one's self, is it cosmic
conscience. It is not separate from existence, rather it is
the realization of the sublime truth of existence,
Microcosmic and Macrocosmic; the comprehension that there is
a truth, a principle which unites us with all creation. It
is the reality that keeps us alive. In a word, it is an
infinite felicity by which we transcend the human planes of
existence. It is an orgasm between our spirit and the
cosmos, consciousness being the purest manifestation of
existence, through our actions. It is the soaring of
conscience in the search for the reality of the heights.
With modification of the conscience, meditation with a
silent heart, without seeking, it arrives. It is the
consequence of living it. The flower is not aborted; given
the conditions, it blooms. You ought to prepare for your
flowering in the realization of the Spring of the divine, in
The good gardener frets not for the flowers; he cares for
the plants. He waters them, tends them; they shall bloom
alone, they needn't be forced. Love is the flowering of your
interior, only tend and cultivate that inner space.
Be grateful when your love is received and accepted,
acknowledge your debt to whomsoever receives it. Fill your
existence with love, and then share it. The more you give,
the more you will receive, converting your love into a
festival of love. Love is Pure Illumination, a flowering of
the Spontaneous Light. It is when, by means of meditation,
you discard the wrapping of your ego. Your personality is
revealed, freeing your true nature.
It requires only ground to flower, this ground is called
meditation; the climate is silence and the fertilizer is
purity of feeling. Then, thousands of flowers blossom
within, and its fragrance emerges. The Light of the spirit
is perceived, Light which will illuminate the path for the
others. Search your heart in silence, and you will find a
new dimension of life, it is pure Illumination. It is not a
concept, not imagination; "Your inner Buddha has awakened".
No one is poor; only unaware that paradise is within
themselves. Be not a beggar of life, work, money,
well-being, love, etcetera. Born to be a Prince or King, you
conform yourself with being a toad or a frog. You needn't
beg for ought, your kingdom is within you; yet, you are
content to be a frog. You needn't wait for the princess or
prince to appear to awaken you to eternity, it inhabits you;
you are the prodigal child of your own existence.
Venerate your existence with gratitude, feel the inner music
and dance the cosmic rhythm of life in silence. Then shall
you realize that existence is divine, it expands in
thousands of manifestations, it is all of creation, life
itself. All is filled with is, it is alive, surrender unto
it… join its freedom, the freedom of the conscience, loving
all that exists. Discover your inner splendor. Soon you
shall discover that love arrives in abundance, you shan't be
able to contain it; it will arrive from all directions.
"Life surges from the eternal
by the Eternal, Love shall conquer.
As a fount of the Light of life
And hymn of Celestial Glory
The Thousand-Petalled Flower of Light,
Shall bring its eternal beauty.
It is a thousand-voiced chorus of Tradition
Enlightening as well the path for others"
