"Love is not an aberration, or the brief bumping together of meaningless molecules...
Love is the fabric and foundation of every manifest thing.
The visible universe is an ornament of a seething boundless net of Love.
It condenses into every weird and wonderful shape.
Occasionally one may glimpse this timeless firmament, the infinite One,
the sacred marriage field of all beings,
the mystic primordial background to the foreground of the material world.
This glimpse can be found in the eye of the Beloved.
Lovers are temporal extensions of the trans-temporal field.
One reason loving relationships can be successful
is in their recognition of themselves as extensions of a transpersonal field of Love."
Alex Grey, Tantra, 1991, oil on linen, 24 x 30 inch, www.alexgrey.com
"Albert Hoffman used to say that love was the highest refinement of light because all life owes it’s existence to the sun. Our planet is at just the proper distance from a star to not be scorched and not be frozen, perfect for the emergence of self-replicating DNA. Every phase of cosmic evolution has been a succession of miracles. First was the differentiation between light and void in the flaring birth of our cosmos. The cosmic creative force emerged from seething chaos sub-atomic particles to atoms, molecules, cells, multi-cellular beings, each a giant leap of becoming over billions of years, to form the material world we know. Einstein claimed he was most astonished by the fact of “the existence of anything at all.” The human species has mythologized the force of love in Eros, the erotic urgency toward the beloved. The Force of Love at the source and center of existence has called forth the universe to discover itself. Forces weave the tapestry of our world, sewn together by sacred relationships." - Alex Grey and Allyson Grey

The divinity of the human imagination is the meeting point of world religions, because all begin with stories of God contact, and that only happens within the human psyche. The mystic philosopher, Ibn Arabi, specifically calls the creative imagination our angel, where God meets God. Ibn Arabi couldn't be any more explicit. An angel is an apparition or theophany that is apprehended by the soul's eye. This soul's eye view is what all of sacred art and literature share, a portal to divinity. Today's visionary artists, having had transcendental experiences through meditation and sacrament, are translating those apprehensions of the infinite inter-dimensional cosmos through their own skillful means. The planetary movement of visionary artists affirms the cross-cultural unity of these ecstatic inner realms and interconnectedness of all life and the cosmic order. Humanity is tapped into the Heavens. We are embodiments of a Hermetic staff connecting material and spiritual worlds, by means of the divinely aspiring mind.

“Throughout the great wisdom traditions, stories of contact with Divinity appear as the ultimate experience of truth and reality, a revelation of Oneness and identification with the life renewing love energy beyond space and time. In a Spirit that honors all lenses to Divinity, we seek the highest and deepest understanding and mystical experience within our capability. The cosmic evolutionary force has transformed from 13.8 billion year old plasma-gas, to a vast expanse of galactic clusters of solar systems and on our earth from 3.8 billion year old blue-green algae through all biology toward beings open to revelation. The imaginal realms of the one writing this and the one reading this are sacred mirrors of the Divine Artist fabricating the now.”
