      Existence is love. Any thought procress just apparently obscures it.

      Though, existence continues as the eternal presence of itself, from ever and
      for ever.

      Thoughts appear in this presence Existence is.
      Attention directed to thoughts and trapped by them, makes it appear that what
      is present is only the temporary, unaware of the Eternal and Permanent
      Presence that always is, now and ever.

      Meditation is the awareness of this Eternal Presence over or in which
      thoughts appear and disappear.

      Meditation is love.
      This is what we are.

      Love is what we are.

      Love is felt in the chest area of the body. We call it the Heart.

      The body is a thought, a gross thought.
      The thought process creates the idea of gross body, subtle body, lower body,
      higher body, body-self, low=self, higher-self and so on. These are all
      thoughts, these are the creation, Creation, manifest existence, temporary
      items.
      All of which is sustained on the Eternal Presence of Love. The One, All and
      None Eternal Item.

      Love, and be happy
      Maria Luisa
