The Geometry of Love
The most difficult lesson of all is Love. Why?
For this, I will ask you to take out a one dollar bill, in order to see the pyramid and "The Eye". Indeed the back of the one dollar bill is truly fascinating.
"The Eye" is represented in so many cultures to symbolize omnipresence it is hard to miss it.
For one second consider "The Eye" as Love and the bases of the pyramid as Truth, Beauty, Power and Wisdom, juxtaposed with each other and fully interchangeable, fully supporting each other.
Contrary to the popular saying, "Love is blind", Love sees fully what is behind the personalities and is able to go beyond the obvious. It is able to forgive and forget and start over.
On beauty, seen through the eyes of Love, everything is beautiful- for the one who loves truly relates to both the beauty and the grotesqueness of the person they love, in their wholeness and uniqueness.
With love comes Wisdom, the wisdom to endure momentary lapses when the ego tries to assert itself and demands something of the other person. For one who loves demands nothing and expects nothing knowing that in loving there is already an inherent gift. The capacity to love.
Power, oh, there is no power in the Universe greater than love. For God is love.
