Ecstasy

Share it Please
“I feel an indescribable ecstasy and delirium in melting, as it were, into the system of beings, in identifying myself with the whole of nature”

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Over time, kindness develops into affection. Over time, affection deepens to love. And when love is given selflessly or unguardedly, over time a deeper love reveals itself, a love that has no agenda for personal gain or control. When one first becomes aware that he or she is loving in that way it is as if a rush of joy floods in to remind us of our natural born capacity to care about each other. Logan Pearsall Smith wrote that it is “through the cracks in our brains that ecstasy creeps in.” To me that means ecstasy cannot be planned or pursued with rational thoughts, goals and intentions. It is the natural byproduct of innocent loving. The ecstasy that comes from loving people is wonderful. The ecstasy that comes from loving the Presence is something deeply personal that each person must discover and experience for themselves.

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
