Love – The 500 Level

The 500 level is characterized by the development of a Love that is unconditional, unchanging and permanent.  It does not fluctuate because its source within the person who loves is not dependent on external conditions.  Loving is a state of being.  It is a way of relating to the world that is forgiving, nurturing, and supportive.  Love is not intellectual and  it does not proceed from the mind.  Love emanates from the heart.  It has the capacity to lift others and accomplish great feats because of its purity of motive.

At this level of development the capacity to discern essence becomes predominant; the core of an issue becomes the center of focus.  As reason is bypassed, there arises the capacity for instantaneous recognition of the totality of a problem and a major expansion of context, especially regarding time and process.  Reason deals only with particulars, whereas Love deals with wholes.  This ability, often ascribed to intuition, is the capacity for instantaneous understanding without resorting to sequential symbol processing.  This apparently abstract phenomenon is in fact, quite concrete; it is accompanied by a measurable release of endorphins in the brain.

Love takes no position and thus is global, rising above the separation of positionality.  It is then possible to be “one with another,” as there are no longer any barriers.  Love is therefore inclusive and expands the sense of self progressively.  Love focuses on the goodness of life in all its expressions and augments that which is positive.  It dissolves negativity by recontextualizing it rather than by attacking it.

  1. I miss Doc so much. What would he have to say about recent events? Can anyone point me towards a passage? I have most of his books.

    Thank you for being dedicated to his work, Susan.

    1. A committed spiritual student takes no position in regard to world events. Let go and let God handle the phenomena of the ‘world’. Thy will be done.

  2. Being a student for more than a decade, and after reading all of Docs books, listening to most audio and continuing to watch videos it feels like I am beginning to (properly) comprehend what it means to love in the 500’s.

    I say this now as I think there is a tendency for people to assume they are ‘higher’ than they are and ignore that perhaps they are still living life below 200.

    We all like to project ourselves higher on the scale than we actually are, especially when you have periods or glimpses of higher states. I find that humility and revisiting levels below 200 and clarifying intention to transcend lower levels a helpful practice.

  3. Please somebody explain the “major expansion of context, especially regarding time and process.” Is this meaning as you approach loving ness, time is irrelevant as there is no concept of time in the non linear realm and we being eternal beings are not bound by this “time” concept? Unsure where process fits.
