Ouspensky, P D - Tertium Organum - On love
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Tertium Organum – P D Ouspensky
When creation, the birth of ideas, is the light which comes from love, then this light comes from a great fire – an eternally burning fire in which humanity and all the world are being incessantly purified and in which all the forces of the human spirit and of genius are being evolved and refined and, perhaps, from this same fire or by its aid, a new force will arise which shall deliver from the chains of matter all who follow where it leads.
Speaking not figuratively, but literally, it may be said that love, being the most powerful of all emotions unveils in the soul of man all its qualities - patent and latent, and it may also unfold new potencies – the development of powers in the human soul so deeply hidden that by the majority of men their very existence is denied.
