Before we begin to unpack this in a careful step by step way – which is absolutely essential – let me try and outline this through a very larger meta frame.
Who are you?
When I dive into these questions from the deepest place of reality this is what emerges.
We live in a world of outrageous pain.
The only response to outrageous pain is outrageous love.
We live in a world of outrageous beauty.
The only response to outrageous beauty is outrageous love.
What is the path of outrageous love? How does one respond with outrageous love?
The path of outrageous love is the path of the outrageous lover.
Lest you misunderstand let me say at the outset. The outrageous lover keeps every boundary that should be kept and breaks every boundary that should be broken.
What does the outrageous lover do?
The outrageous lover commits outrageous acts of love.
What outrageous acts of love does the outrageous lover commit? If you are an outrageous lover what outrageous acts of love should you commit?
Now let’s be very clear about this. The fact that reality exists-emergent from the great flaring forth –is as Ervin has made so clear above – Outrageous. So in some sense reality itself is an outrageous act of love –an outrageous lover letter from the infinite to the finite. Reality –logos- is an outrageous love letter in which the infinite – moved by the great pathos of love –disguises itself as the finite in order to become intimate with the beloved. The beloved is reality itself. The beloved is you and the beloved is me.
So who are you? You are an outrageous lover. You are an irreducibly unique expression of the love intelligence that initiated and animates all that is. You have outrageous acts of love to commit to that are yours and yours alone to commit.
If you do not commit these outrageous acts of love they will not happen.
Why does that matter?
Because they are pockets of reality that are UnLove that can only be reached, addressed and healed by your outrageous acts of love.
Deeper still – you need to understand that reality is not static. The universe we now reality in the new genesis story –the Universe is not a fact but a story. It is a story of Evolution. Reality – on all of its levels evolves. Reality evolves to ever, high levels of complexity. On the inside of complexity is consciousness. An amoeba is less complex and less conscious then a plant. A plant is less complex and less conscious then a dog. A human being is more complex and more conscious then a dog. So the evolution of complexity is also the evolution of consciousness. The interior of complexity is consciousness. But it goes deeper still. The interior of consciousness is love.
The more conscious a being is the more they are capable of love. It is only the highly evolved human being that builds hospitals for the weak and the sick. This is an expression of higher consciousness and wider and deeper love. As the human being evolves her felt sense of caring and concerns evolves and expands beyond her immediate family to the tribe or clan, then it expands beyond the tribe or clan to the entire nation. Then love expands beyond the nation to every human being in the world. Finally love expands beyond human beings to all sentient beings and to all of reality itself. This is the evolution of love which takes place in direct proportion to the evolution of consciousness.
Said simply; the interior of complexity is consciousness and the interior of consciousness is love. So the story of evolution is really –at its core the great story of the evolution of love. When you really get that you begin to understand that love wakes up as you.
Love wakes up as the evolutionary love that lives uniquely in you, as you and through you. Your unique expression of the love beauty and love intelligence of all that is – is the primary driver of evolution itself. Your outrageous acts of love is the natural expression of evolutions next stages. Evolutions moves in its upwards spiral – through your active participation in the evolution of love. Who are you? You are an outrageous lover with outrageous acts of love to perform. Acts of love and Eros are entrepreneurial by their very nature. They see possibilities for the creation of new connections and new value.
They see new possibility and new ways of expressing and creating worth, depth, goodness, truth and beauty in the world. The universe by its very nature as we will unpack more fully below – is entrepreneurial. Who are you? Who is the entrepreneur?
The entrepreneur is an outrageous lover. The entrepreneur does not come to exploit or take unfair advantage of reality. Rather the entrepreneur is the natural and organic expression of the entrepreneurial universe. The universe is an expression of outrageous love. New value and new depth is manifest through the unfolding of evolutionary love at every stage of evolutionary development. That outrageous love breaks out in in the creative entrepreneurial human being as outrageous acts of love fostering new connectivity, creating new value and opening up new doors of love’s expression in every dimension of reality.
Those that are YOURS to commit.
What does that mean?
Those outrageous acts of love that are yours to commit are the outrageous acts of love that are a natural and necessary expression of Your Unique Self.
What do we mean by the term Unique Self?
You are an irreducible expression of the love intelligence and love beauty that initiated and animates all that is. You are a unique incarnation of essence that never was is or will be again in precisely this fashion. God or reality, is having a YOU experience.
That is Your Unique Self.
