HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
I had a waking dream of the sacred love flow. My experience has led me to a powerful vision of living life completely immersed in the love of God.
I was standing on two rocks, straddling a flowing stream of water beneath. I sensed God’s love flowing through me and around me. I could feel the energy. I started to shake. The power was immense. Lord what will you have me to do in this very moment was my cry.
As I contemplated the prospect of God’s love expanding, I was suddenly catapulted into the air by the surging fountain. I almost fell over, the sensation was so powerful.
Then, I laughed. I pictured myself as a little joking figure on my back being held up in the air, helpless to do anything but flail my arms and legs. All I could see was water stretching out in every direction beneath me, and a pale blue sky. I knew God was all around me, but I felt alone and empty. I realized that there was the only option for me to escape my present state. I had to dive beneath the surface.
I was afraid I would drown, but I intuitively grasped that my only hope was going forward. It was dive, and take my chances, or remain on the surface, surrounded by God, but completely unsatisfied.
I chose to trust Him. Instantly, I found myself underwater, swimming freely and looking at the beautiful fish and coral, lit up somehow by God’s light. I could breathe by some miraculous oxygen source. I was completely at peace, and full of joy.
I want to live in the ocean of God’s love and be filled and overflowing with it. I want others to experience this sacred love in their encounters with me. I want everything I do to be an expression of this love.
The sacred love flow is a vision. It’s a calling. It’s a way of being in the world. It’s a guiding light.
It’s also very biblical. In Scripture, we see that the vision of the sacred love fits very well with Jesus’ teaching and Paul’s prayers for other Christians. We are called to become more and more like Jesus Christ, in mind, heart, and behaviour, filled with and led by the Holy Spirit, and marked by our love for others.
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. (Ephesians 3:16-19)
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:17-18)
And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; 10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ. 11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God. (Philippians 1:9-11)
