Love realizing it itself is Love

The 'divine system' parallels the human system, but is far, far wider. It encompasses all forms, not just human forms. It regulates the entry of life-force into form, the entry of consciousness into life force and the entry of awareness into consciousness, until, eventually, the soul becomes aware of itself as love, and experiences itself as love. At this point, the regular and the regulated are one, continued physical existence is a choice and incarnation is voluntary and perfect. Great love allows freedom. The greatest joy occurs when freedom is used to find mergence. That joy, that ecstasy is Love's self-experience, or divine self-knowledge. There where never two, only the illusion of two. As the illusion dissolves, Love experiences itself.
