      Beautiful words, as always,
      Maria Luisa. Yes, thoughts
      give way to "feelings" of
      love rather than thoughts,
      as meditation becomes our
      natural way of being from
      moment to moment. As you
      have written -- when we
      realize that life is
      meditation.

      And as these feelings of love
      begin to flow and occupy our
      sense of being in place of
      the constant inner chatter,
      these feelings of love bring a
      "message", a wisdom whisper,
      from the heart that informs
      us in ways that are beyond
      what thoughts are capable
      of presenting. The wisdom
      whisper introduces us to
      a new love of a new depth;
      the love that takes your
      breath away with nearly
      overwhelming bliss, and
      gratitude and joy beyond
      words. This love is a love
      of perfect harmony; that
      is, we both feel it going
      outward and we receive it
      coming inward with complete
      trust and "knowing" that it
      comes from God, from Source,
      from our Higher Self.

      The image of a heart in the
      typical symbol of red, with
      another heart of gold within
      the red heart, at our very
      core stirs the imagination.
      This symbolic heart of love
      has a precious gold core,
      a pure center from which
      flows wisdom and universal
      knowledge; much like (actually
      precisely like) the experience
      mentioned in the third-eye
      meditation that Bob Rose
      teaches.

      It's all about love. And
      meditation can open a door
      to a love beyond anything
      we can think or imagine.

      A beautiful mantra for
      beginning meditators and
      seekers along the path is
      contained within so many
      songs and poems.

      The mantra:

      Bring me a higher love.

      Love, as always,

      Jeff
