"REmain in the great love"
It is the state he encourages the constellation practitioners and all the helping professions to be in, as the way to practice constellation work,
and in fact, all professional help.
And of course, it is the attitude which is suggested to every participant.
In reality it is what every true religion has always encouraged us to do:
for the love which is greater
Love is the healer. The Great Love is the Great Healer.
The Great Love is there for all, equally.
Recent German introductions and comments by Bert, translated by me (Angelika), follow below
Much of Bert's present work is centred around that, to present to the healing professions his view of the difficulties of clients. He always looks at the system of connectedness, in which the client exists, not at the isolated individual.
I have called the page "Greater Love" to avoid the
confusion with a great personal love, and to avoid the misunderstanding
that the "great love" is something static, something fixed. It
is always that which we feel unable to expand into, which may make us
cramp up even more. It is always the next step ahead of us on the
journey into love and within love.
This love is not nurtured or gained by outer evidence, and to share the transcending of a smaller love is a blessing. Here we gain the sense of "community", first within our families, and finally on our little planet.
People who are willing to commit to
this relentless teacher, to take on the hard task of taming emotions and
attitudes alike, are moving closer to their capacity of
Thanks to the blessing of the Great Love, enough humans have already committed themselves, so we are fortunate to be able to find examples and encouragement. The taming is still an arduous task, but great are the rewards.
About an aspect that assists us in this taming, I am talking on the page "trauma healing".
The Great Love is the field which gives us the truth that is deeper and wider than the one we had before. Any suffering that we are going through whilst "remaining in the Great Love" yields great jewels.
Bringing great pain, unbearable
conflict into the presence of the Great Love, resisting our instinctual
reactions, holding the pain and holding Love at the same time, has a
transforming effect. It opens up a further dimension for us. A bit like
perceiving the picture in the depth of a 3-D image. We can feel our
whole existence within this extended space. Regrets give way to
awe and to a joy where we least expected it.
Bert emphasizes the importance of understanding conscience here. You find his article on conscience in translations.htm.
Bert calls the step into the beyond "Moving with Spirit", and we dare not define this.
A reflection of it in us could perhaps be called "moving with
Mind" (if we understand "Mind" in the Chinese meaning
where raw, dissipated emotions have been fused into the aspects of love,
so that heart and thought and action have become one, in harmony with
the field within which they exist. At the same time, there is an
impersonal quality bout it. Now the field moves this unified
energy, with happy , yet somewhat detached cooperation of the soul. And the soul opens to the
directions and instructions of the field and understands itself as an
aspect of it.
|So, in constellations we start with
"small problems, seemingly personal or jst within the family. After
some experiences, we begin to see that even our relatively small
symptoms can often be traced to quite painful events in the past. When
they are healed on the level of the soul, we no longer need to
experience the symptom.
And we simply make ourselves available to the Great Love. We leave our ideas behind.
The early images show the disconnectedness and the suffering of people. Then we begin to see what the suffering is connected to. Often, when we are on unfamiliar ground, and in the face of large scale catastrophe, such as war, we may not know how to go on. The immediate image may appear hopelessly frozen. We re-experience the despair of the people who actually were in that situation. Then we need to remind ourselves again:
To every conflict the Great Love has a solution.
To every pain the Great Love has a remedy.
To every disruption of love the Great Love shows the ties that are deeper and can be recovered.
No matter how great the despair, there is a Love that is Greater and that can contain it.
Of course, healing may take a long time, and it requires that we give up something that was in the way. such as the need to be right, to know better, to accuse, to want revenge.
But we come to see how the other people - and we ourselves - are caught in events much bigger than us, that we are all caught up in unconscious connections to which we unknowingly, blindly respond. This begins to help us and the people we are involved in, to open up. Step by step we can melt, have greater insights, and in the end, want peace and respect for all more than what we experienced before. All all sacrifices become small in the face of that which allows goodwill, respect, cooperation, and love that lacks the counterpart of hate.
