Excerpt of the book (for the full version, download PDF)
God as Father is Wisdom. God as Mother is Love.
God as Father resides in the Eye of Wisdom. The Eye of Wisdom is situated between the eyebrows.
God as Love is found in the Heart-Temple.
Wisdom and Love are the two Toral Columns of the Great White Lodge.
To love, what a beautiful thing it is to love. Only the great Souls can, and know how to love. Love is infinite tenderness... Love is the life that palpitates in every atom, as in every Sun.
Love cannot be defined because it is the Divine Mother of the World; it is what occurs to us when we are really in love.
Love is felt in the depths of the heart. It is a delicious personal experience, it is a fire that consumes, it is divine wine, a delight to those who drink it. A simple perfumed handkerchief, a letter, a flower, causes tremendous intimate. Inquietudes in the depths of the Soul, exotic ecstasy, ineffable voluptuousness.
No one has ever been able to define Love. One must experience it and feel it. Only the great lovers really know that which is called Love. The Perfect Matrimony is the union of two beings who really know how to love.
To have true Love it is necessary for the man and woman to adore each other on all the seven great cosmic planes.
For there to be Love there should be a true communion of Souls in the three spheres of Thought, Feeling and Will.
When two beings vibrate in affinity in their thought, feeling and volition, then the Perfect Matrimony is fulfilled in the seven planes of cosmic consciousness.
There are people married on the physical and etheric planes, but not on the astral plane. Others are married on the physical, etheric and astral planes, but, not on the mental plane. Each thinks in his own way, the woman has one religion and the man another, they do not agree in their thoughts etc.
There are marriages that are kindred in the worlds of thought and feeling, but absolutely opposite in the world of the will; these couples clash constantly; they are not happy.
The Perfect Matrimony must take place on the seven planes of cosmic consciousness. There are marriages that do not even reach the astral plane. Then there is not even sexual attraction; these are true failures. This type of couple bases itself exclusively in the matrimonial form.
Some people live married life on the physical plane with a certain partner, and on the mental plane they live married life with a different partner. Rarely in life do we find a Perfect Matrimony. For there to be Love, it is necessary for there to be affinity of thought, affinity of feeling and will.
Where there is arithmetic reckoning, there is not Love. Unfortunately Love in modern life has the smell of the bank account, commodities and celluloid. In those homes where there are only additions and subtractions, Love does not exist. When Love leaves the heart, it is difficult for it to return. Love is a very elusive child.
The marriage made without Love, based only on economical or social interests is really a sin against the Holy Spirit. This type of marriage will inevitably fail. Lovers frequently confuse desire with Love and the worst of the matter is that they marry believing that they are in love. Having consummated the sexual act, the carnal passion satisfied, then comes disenchantment. What remains is the terrible reality.
Lovers should analyze themselves before marrying to know whether they are really in love. Passion is easily confused with Love. Love and desire are absolute opposites.
He who is really in love is capable of giving even the last drop of blood for his beloved. Examine yourself before marrying. Do you feel capable of giving even the last drop of blood for the one you adore? Would you be capable of giving your life so that your beloved could live? Reflect and meditate.
Is there true affinity of thought, feeling and will with the one you adore? Remember that if a complete affinity does not exist then your marriage, instead of being a heaven will be a true inferno. Do not allow yourself to be led by desire. Kill not only desire, but the very shadow of that tempting tree of desire.
Love begins with a flash of delicious sympathy, is substantiated with infinite tenderness, and is embodied in supreme adoration.
A Perfect Matrimony is the union of two beings who adore each other absolutely. In Love there are no estimates or bank accounts. If you are making estimates and calculations, it is because you are not in love. Reflect before taking the great step. Are you really in love? Be careful of the illusion of desire. Remember the flame of desire consumes life, and then all that remains is the tremendous reality of death.
Contemplate the eyes of the one you adore, lose yourself within the delight of his eyes. But, if you want to be happy, do not allow yourself to be carried off by desire.
Man in love; do not confuse Love with passion. Analyze yourself deeply. It is urgent to know if she belongs to you in Spirit. It is necessary to know if you are in complete affinity with her in the three worlds: thought, feeling and will.
Adultery is the cruel result of lack of Love. A woman truly in love would prefer death before adultery. The man who commits adultery is not in love.
Love is terribly divine. The Blessed God-Mother of the World is that which is called Love.
With the terrible Fire of Love we can transform ourselves into Gods to enter majestically into the amphitheatre of Cosmic Science.
