Religion of Love


By Raven Gypsy

Love seems to be a major theme that underscores any true path to enlightenment. To love all others equally and without judgment seems to be the ultimate lesson and ultimate challenge we all face.

Ibn al-‘Arabi declares that no religion is more sublime than a religion of love and longing for God. Love is the essence of all creeds: the true mystic welcomes it whatever guise it may assume. "My heart has become capable of every form: it is a pasture for gazelles and a convent for Christian monks,
And a temple for idols, and the pilgrim's Ka‘ba, and the tables of the Tora and the book of the Koran.
I follow the religion of Love, whichever way his camels take.
My religion and my faith is the true religion.
We have a pattern in Bishr, the lover of Hind and her sister,
and in Qays and Lubna, and in Mayya and Ghaylan."


Commenting on the last verse, the poet writes:
"Love, quâ love, is one and the same reality to those Arab lovers and to me; but the objects of our love are different, for they loved a phenomenon, whereas I love the Real. They are a pattern to us, because God only afflicted them with love for human beings in order that He might show, by means of them, the falseness of those who pretend to love Him, and yet feel no such transport and rapture in loving Him as deprived those enamoured men of their reason, and made them unconscious of themselves."
(Nicholson, Reynold A. The Mystics of Islam. Routledge, Kegan Paul, London, 1914. Online version: http://www.sacred-texts.com/isl/moi/moi.htm)

The holiest of all the spots on earth is where an anciet hatred has become a present love.
(A Course In Miracles, Text pg 562)

Love vanquishes all attackers
It is impregnable in defense
When Heaven wants to protect someone does it send an army?
No, it protects him with love
(Tzu, Lao. Tao Te Ching. Trans. Jonathan Star. Verse 67. page 80)

Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs. (Bible, Proverbs 10:12)

Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. (Bible, Leviticus 19:18)
