"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
