38 Living Love and Tenderness

Pure existence godbeing in my own awake space,
Self-existent traveler through the quantum cosmos,
Stirred awake as I dream, I know you are real!
Please soften my touch and sweeten my heart!

Living love, now we are alone.
Love so tender! OH! Too bare to touch!
Oh, naked love, I am afraid to feel!
Love and death! Now I know!

Hidden Dragon! Shield me, please!
Life requires illusion for love to live.
We are deceived to think we are worthy of this.
Human love and living love do not compare.

Living Love! Fire of Life! I die for you!
Living Love! Fire of Life! I die for you!
Living Love! Fire of Life! I die for you!

In the deepest folds of pure existence, something unutterably tender lives the one real life. It is the first fold of godspace within itself and is the essence of all godbeing dreamers. Single flames of godbeing love draw their life from a greater godbeing flame linked into vast dimensions of love unfathomable. The human heart can bow only so deeply before it must perish within the flame and pass its worship on to a greater love.

A godbeing flame is an infinitely fine sense of knowing that vibrates nakedly as pure existence. This tender vibration is a matrix of living love, a fine thread in the fabric of godspace that can never be touched by mortal longing. Nothing so tender, nothing so real, can ever be exposed to the dross of human life. Even though all the planets and stars of human perception arise out of its contemplation of itself, living love cannot assert its existence as the source of this world without wounding the tenderness of its self-knowing.

And yet, deep within the human heart, there is a fine turn in the veil, which is the doorway into the presence of this being. Under extraordinary circumstances, which this flame of living love alone can manifest, it is willing to open the veil for modest waves of its love to be released. But there is a danger. So humble and beautiful is the love of this being that even its most reserved gesture can draw a lover into the flame. Such a union brings immediate death to the lover. There is nothing to contemplate when you draw this prayer. Living love merely makes its presence known.

Advanced Commentary
Coming into the presence of the living love flame requires certain qualities which must resonate with the flame itself. The voice of this prayer has a soft touch and a sweet heart and passes through the veil into the presence, where it apprehends the absolute tenderness of the living love flame. It recognizes this flame as the one pure existence flame in infinite contemplation of itself, sending into the world waves of love so tender that even close proximity is enough to burst the subtle boundaries that account for individual seeing and knowing. This voice cannot feel infinite love until it realizes the union of love and death.

The voice realizes in an instant the necessity of the many layers of living fabric needed to cover the nakedness of a pure existence flame. As the voice seeks irresistibly to penetrate the veil, it is the living love flame which rises in order to save it from foolhardiness; in the same gesture, the flame asks to be shielded from the invasion of such a coarse gaze as that of the voice.

Having apprehended the appropriateness of the warnings it has received and watched another layer of the veil come into place, the voice reviews the wisdom its vision has left it: love requires illusion to live; human beings are not worthy of the living flame; human love and god love do not compare. The godseed realization of this prayer is that the only entryway into the living flame of love is death. The intent of this voice is clear: “I die for you!”
