Oh Love…

who can measure the depth of your
mystery…

intangible
invisible
devoid of fragrance and of taste
ever silent…

impossible too… to measure out
your image

sit
for a moment

really look at all you see…

hands cupped to your eyes…
Love looks small indeed…

hands released…
this room appears…

while outside…
it seems…

the far horizon…
sky and heavens… show a grander vision

yet how trivial… how fleeting

compared to Love entire…

revealed through
words… the image of the known…

wherever you look
what’s seen is simply ‘surface’

inside each thing…

unseen…
yet known…

on every scale…
are all its inner workings…

down to quantum levels…

and out beyond...

the edgeless edge
of vision…

beyond…
the fleeting image…

of
‘cupped hands’…

or

the shifting confines of
this ‘apparent room’…

beyond too…

the ‘far horizon’...
when you look…

a known world…

existing not in space or time...
but only in this void...

of knowing...

intangible...

unseen...

of land and sea…
and nature…

moulded in the shape of
people…

and their traces…

and deep beneath…

its molten core…
now shielded from the eye…

but not the mind of God

(who contemplates it
with these words…

from out the hidden mystery of the knowing)…

and known far beyond…

the vast and ancient swirl of galaxies and nebulae
whose own bodies
too…

are known…

in concept…
built of atoms…
forming mighty orbs…

how immense this single moment seems

until measured against the enormity…

of everything…
on every scale…

that’s known…

every moment… of… all time…

yet what you contemplate
is still…

so incomparably minute

for this is
but one…

of all
the worlds…

that
numberless
are
known…

reflecting this…

Belov’ed… Love…

and this not near the limit…

now grasp…
every physical and chemical and biologic process…

and all the laws of nature
that measure out the heavens and the earth… in every universe…

not this alone…

and how all these… are marvellously… entwined…

and the life of every living thing… at every moment… in every place… and time

in all the worlds…
and universes…

that may ever be…

and…

of all those to whom Love
gives her own awareness…

as if seeing out their eyes…

hearing
tasting
smelling
feeling from their perspective...

contemplate how vast and infinitely rich...
the sum is...

of every moment of their lives…

and all relationships… in which they are involved...

their instincts and their habits…

all social mores…

their love and hate…

the minutiae
of life…

and of all dreamscapes dreamed from the perspective of every dreaming creature…

contemplate too…
every possible device...

and all activities – both work… and play…
that are ever known to exist…

all thoughts, emotions… maths and music…

all meaning known…



and if you…

Love…

are not now in awe…

of Love…

who sees and feels and tastes and smells and hears and knows…

each life…
in turn…

as in a dream...

who reads these very words…

and knows their meaning…

then
Love
indeed has hidden this…

her face…

from you...

oh blessed Love…

behind the veil
of ignorance…

but only in this moment…

to play… at playing
two…

Lover and Beloved…

the One hiding...

the One seeking…

Love

yes... I love it...

aquarius does... not

there is no aquarius to experience it...

just the appearance of 'michael's words' and meaning...

and the 'background' against which they appear...

surrounded in this void…

by some feelings

and
perhaps...

some extraneous sounds… and odours...

arising as...

One...

with the feeling of love...

together forming…

the 'apparent momentary aquarius experience'....

that dies… as it is born...

(see if you can... in any apparent moment... find an 'aquarius'...
apart from the fleetng sensations and meaning arising... in that 'moment')

as is 'aquarius'... so is 'michael'...

neither dead nor alive...

they exist in
Me...

as I know them…
so they are...

from birth to death... eternal... ever unchanging...

yet…fleeting is the experience...

of each moment...
of their lives...

called into being through the senses...

patterned after
My image of them...

even so... dear One...

(who writes.. and reads these very words… as they appear…

as all words…

alone...
knowing their meaning)…

thank you... too...

for ‘aquarius’ words…
and...

Love
