… Now this quality of being unknown is what we have sometimes called the quality of mystery. And it is mystery which characterizes as best as we have been able to discern, the One Creator in its undistorted self. But we would also like to suggest that the mystery of which we speak is a mystery which resonates down through every distortion, every facet, and every iota of the creation. This mystery is available for participating in, and to our experience, limited though it may be, love is always the most eloquent, the most searching, and the most fulfilling way of participating in the one central mystery which is the Creator Itself.
And so, in the infinitesimally articulated experiences, down through all the densities, and in manner upon manner of creaturely existence, beyond the wildest imagination of any particular creature, there is available the possibility of taking up a direct relation to the one mystery of the creation, and making of this mystery a celebration of the creation itself as the Creator is given the opportunity to participate in a relation [that] the creature has made available to that Creator. The making available of that magical moment goes by the simple name of love.
And so when you are able to love your neighbor, when you are able to love yourself, when you are able to love the entirety of the creation with all of the shortcomings that you may perceive in it, with all of the difficult people that you may know, with all of the flaws which you may be able easily to see within your own self, then you have the greatest gift to give the Creator that the Creator ever could want. The Creator then becomes known to the Creator, just as when you love someone, that someone becomes known to you in a deeper way than they ever could be if the carrier wave of that relationship was anything else but love. …
I greet you in the light of the infinite Father, I am your teacher Hatonn.
Greetings my friends. I am in a way looking forward to this evening. I have been asking my teacher a few questions, as you have asked me questions. I have a teacher also. I am also a student, as you are. As you go on, in your studies, you will find that in a very short length of time that you have a very, very long way to go, as all of us.
I am endeavoring to enlighten you on the subject I have chosen to call the new area of understanding. I have been waiting and carefully evaluating all of you. I am not going to present anything to you that I am not sure of. At this time and place it is most desirable to give you only enough information. I am attempting to enlighten you without any confusion.
Now I am about to begin. Everyone in this room is asking what will all this lead to. I am about to tell you this, my friends. You are on the threshold of a bright new future. I am very happy to give you your first glimpse of true understanding. I am being very careful as I am giving you this information.
As you sit in your home looking and waiting for something to happen, it is happening. You are able to realize a change taking place. Others about you are able to sense a change. And my friends, you are going through a change, in your entire thinking. As you watch and listen you will become more aware of it. I have told you before that we are working with your people constantly. And now you are realizing a change. This change will gain momentum, and very soon will realize a whole new universe of understanding. Each of you in the service will feel and know that it is now. I have talked long enough on this subject. I shall wait for a while before I engage this subject again.
I am very pleased with the understanding of this group. It pleases me very much. I am also very pleased with your cooperation. In the future you will be very busy. We are working constantly arranging and directing. I am watching over all of you.
I am Hatonn. Adonai my friends, I am your guide. I am your light. Love my friends, in your love. Adonai.
To some extent it is true that love follows upon free will as a possible activity of those who embody free will in relation to one another, and one could say, in a larger sense, in relation to the creation as whole. In this sense it would seem then that a proper consideration of the nature of loving would require a fuller consideration of what it means to have free will. That is a story in itself, my friends, but it is useful to note [that], were it not for free will, were it not for the possibility that in creating an infinite number of, shall we say, sparks, or holograms of the creator—each of which can experience itself differently—the creator itself would have no possibility of knowing itself in any way that it did not already have prior to the event of the creation. And so there is contained in the concept of free will a potential that, strangely enough, registers as a not being of the creator to the creator. That already suggests the need of a return to the creator, by the creator, so that the creator may reap the harvest of the creation that has been undertaken so that the creator may know itself.
The more difficult it is to find the love, the more positively polarized in every situation in which you are able to perceive it. It is well to begin your day, shall we say, in a conscious remembrance that this is your purpose: to seek love, to find love, to give love, to be love. If you can find a manner in which this is a reminder to you—be it a period of prayer, a period of meditation, a period of reading inspirational messages—whatever manner allows you to become aware that this is your purpose for the day, it is well to begin the day that lies before you in this manner.
This is a creation of love, and you are within this creation in such a way that love is called forth from you. It’s quite simple to pose the question of the purpose of the creation by suggesting that it is from love and to love that all originates and is directed. But, there is inevitably a question that will arise upon the minds of those who seek, and it is “Why should there need to be, in a creation of love, an effort made to love? Why should there need to be, in a creation of love, an experience of impediments to love? Why should there need to be—in a creation in which love is Alpha and Omega, source and destiny—an experience so bereft of love that love itself can at times seem to be the most impossible result, the most difficult task that one can be required to do?” And to ask this question is to focus on love as a particular kind of activity in which you can engage. You may engage indeed in many kinds of activities, and it is easy to list love upon a long list of things you might accomplish in the course of the day.
Free will to form love
There is another sense of love, however, which we would invite you to consider. We have suggested that, in the nature of the creation itself, love may be counted as one of the early distortions that permit differentiated experience, that permit individuated souls to find their way, to have experiences in a diverse creation and to bring back to the Creator the fruits of these experiences. This portion of the nature of the creation we have sometimes called the second distortion. Now, the first distortion in this creation we have called free will, so it may well seem that love is a dimension of the nature of the way things are that comes about as a result of a first innovation, shall we say, in the creation, involving the development of free will.
It is most helpful if you are conscious that what you do in this illusion is indeed the seeking to find love and to give love at all times. There is no other activity which has value in your spiritual journey other than this seeking and finding and giving of love. Those activities with which you busy yourself as a part of your profession, your hobbies, your activities, your leisure time—all of these are vehicles through which you move in a certain fashion to discover love, whether consciously as a conscious seeker of truth, or whether in a manner which may seem to be accidental as one which moves in a less conscious fashion through the daily rounds of activities.
All have the opportunity to seek and to find love. As we have said before, this creation is made of love. It only seems to be other than love, in order to provide you, shall we say, a challenge that allows you to increase your polarity of positive seeking to serve others by finding the love in those situations in which you find yourself engaged in your daily round of activities.
