13 Corinthians 1-13
The Way of Love
13 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[b] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
I feel like I just completed a graduate level course in consciousness studies after having listened to a 1 hour interview with Robert Gilbert. I was introduced to the work of Robert Gilbert probably about 6 years ago after attending a retreat in Mount Shasta hosted by Gene Ang. I recently was reintroduced when I started watching the series on GAIA TV on Sacred Geometry. It is an amazing series, with a depth of information followed by practices to help develop the energy body. I highly recommend it.
As for the interview, I can't wait to watch it again. It is such a reminder about what this life is all about. He talks about each of us being on our own journey of remembering who we are. He talks about how we enter into this world of separation out of unity, and need to remember that truth. He speaks of the two core values of humanity's existence as Love and Freedom.
How do we find our way out of this mire of hatred, self-destruction, selfishness and greed and find our way back to Love and Freedom?
We must develop our consciousness and our spiritual energy body in order to live fully as who we are as spirit. The work of building our energy body (which is connected to our physical being) is something I personally need to work on. As of late we have not been hosting any courses, but with this, I feel a new and renewed desire to open the space to begin again.
