UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND APPROVAL FOR ALL
on April 7, 2006
In this lucidly written book, the author clearly delineates the true meaning of "Love". One of only a handful of truly enlightened American spiritual masters of the 20th century, this powerfully loving and gently self-effacing being literally stands in the august company of such luminaries as St. Augustine. (see "Masters, Mystics, Saint and Sages - Stories of Enlightment by Robert Ullman aad Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman)
Delving into the nature of "romantic or human love" and "divine love", the author clarifies the often misunderstood differences between the two in a simple fashion. "Romantic or human love" is conditional and epheremal, and therefore is seeking something in return. That something can be as simple as "wanting approval" for being a "good" person. "Wanting" is posited as a negative state.
Divine Love, or "Unconditional Love and Approval" is approached as a Universal Power. The author posits that this is the inherent true nature of All That Is, including human beings. It is free of conditions, and free of judgment. As a power, it is has a positive quality, which transcends time.
How does this relate to someone going about an average day? Simply put, learning to identify those negative feelings which are of a non-loving nature, and letting go of them, provides an easy means to a better, less stresful, more abundant life.
For those approaching this from a scientific standpoint, the author, with his background as a physicist, always propounded that "I know only that which I can demonstrate." The underpinnings of "Unconditional Love and Approval" as a powerful universal force are described in easily readable form in this short book.
The author indeed demonstrated what can be realized through the use of this miraculous power. This book provides some insightful guideposts, at the least, to what some describe as "the holographic universe" or the "God Field" of higher vibrational energy, for its unseen quality.
For deeper spiritual seekers, this book is "soul-ality" at its best. Whether one approaches this from the East or the West, the heart of all the great religions and spiritual masters has been the message of "Love". In practical explanation and practice, a book can't get much simpler and useful than this one.
