Devotion is love. To be devoted to God is to simply love God. In this love, our true Identity is found. We are that Love. We are one with the Love that we desire to know, that we give our full heart and mind to. It is purely in the desire to know this love, to have this love and only this love fill our mind, that our very being merges with it, into it, and our heart is filled to overflowing. It is simply a Giving… a pure desire to know, to be one with, to serve in the truest sense, the Love that we are. Which simply means there is no desire to get or serve something else. To be devoted does not involve proving oneself, or efforting. God simply is. Abiding, ever present light ‘waiting’ for us to relinquish efforting and simply fall back into being with Him. It is simply a singular state of mind, a direction of one’s heart, mind and prayer. This devotion is very different to loyalty to a person, a religion, or a concept of spirituality. In this sense, loyalty or devotion can be personal and can become a block to knowing God. If it originates from personal desire for achievement, or devotion to something external, it will contain it’s opposite - as all things of a dualistic cosmos do. Loyalty to something of this world can mask the belief in disloyalty, or betrayal, or a deep sense of wrongness. Whereas true devotion, of the Heart, from and for the Heart of God - has nothing to do with the ego personality or even the subtlest of spiritual goals. If there is something to heal, the devotion is towards healing. This is the pathway back into remembrance of God - through the miracle which unites us with the light within our brother and our own mind once again. Devotion to awakening to God contains it all. Within this Direction and Care, what is not of God is laid aside, and we awaken to the Love we have always been and will forever be. Here we find our greatest Joy.
