In my early youth I questioned the meaning of the apparent injustice of what ocurred in our lives. Later Iater learned to find the meaning of all our experiences as consequences resulting of our lack of awareness on how we had participated in its creation. I then learned to be responsible for the results created by my causes, without feeling guilty about it or feeling punished by my actions or inactions.(less)

The Look of Love

When you learn to see the universe through the eyes of your Spirit (heart) you will only see love.

What do I mean with this phrase? Does it imply a lack of awareness of the reality suffering that surrounds us?

“When the Self learns to observe the Universe through the eyes of the Spirit, it perceives only Love”
Ivan Figueroa-Otero

“Compassionate Intelligence is when love guides reason to the definite realization of our holographic and supportive universe. It’s the origin of this loving wisdom which characterized all of the great masters. These Masters learned to live in the world like visiting foreign diplomats, since they acknowledged that their heart always dwell in their country of origin, the Kingdom of God.”
Ivan Figueroa-Otero

“God made us to contaminate his creation with a Love Epidemic. Whom have you contaminated today?”

“The Master is nothing but a disciple who would like to help others find their mastery”
Ivan Figueroa-Otero

“The weapons of a true Warrior of Light are compassion and patience to wait for others to learn what he learned”
Ivan Figueroa-Otero

“Our universe is like the moon’s reflection upon a lake.”
Ivan Figueroa-Otero

“In quantum physics, nothing is impossible – only more or less improbable. The observer influences the manifestation of the observed with his thoughts”
Ivan Figueroa-Otero

“Where do I come from?
We are the children of the Great Explosion of Love that begot the whole Universe. We bear a common lineage that unites us in its interminable matrix, that is manifested in all of the different and infinite dimensions, allowing us to participate in this unending co-creation with an attitude of loving co-responsibility.
Who am I?
I am a being of light (Love), with innumerable dimensional manifestations of shadings of Love and Life. The transitory experience within matter, time and space (human being) resides in those manifestations. This allows me the use of my free will in a co-responsible way in the co-creative process of life.”
