Someone asked me to explain my saying that “Love is Being”. Love is not something we give; not something we get. Love is not even something we DO. Love is what we ARE…
From my Tractatus (The Propositions Of Being), we suppose that consciousness came first (Primal Consciousness). In which case Being was before becoming. Becoming is adopting the physical reality as a vehicle.
Since it came first, consciousness has no matter, energy, space or time. Therefore consciousness is without time; is timeless; therefore does not end; therefore consciousness cannot die. Consciousness cannot UN-be!
It follows that the whole of the space-time continuum is within consciousness and not the other way round.
Therefore consciousness enfolds all that it physical.
Primal Consciousness enfolds all Being.
Identities are sub-divisions of this Primal Consciousness. Separateness and individuation divides us from this Primal Consciousness. We are separate from it. But it is not—cannot be—separate from us. Repeat: Primal Consciousness enfolds all.
Love is a recognizable lower harmonic of this enfoldment. Above love, in the greatest manner of Being, love and enfoldment are part of Being. Love IS Being. Being is love.
This follows logically from the primary proposition: that consciousness (Being) came first!
