Falco's (Oberto Airaudi's) writings on the topic of love, edited by Esperide Ananas, are featured in the book The Love of the Fifth Spiritual Paradigm
, recently released in publication by the Oracle Institute Press. The volume is an international collection of over 70 stories, essays and poems written by past and present spiritual guides who speak about love in its various forms. Falco's writings, entitled "Gift of Love, Luminous Calling: Here I Am to confuse Your Heart," offer the poetic titles of selected Selfic paintings on love, interspersed with text discussing various forms of love: the love that connects people with each other, for instance, and divine love as a force that unites everything in the universe.
The book is organized in themed chapters: Love of Earth, Love of Animals, Love of Family, Love of Community, Romantic Love, Love of Learning, Love of the Arts, Love of Self, Love of Freedom, Spiritual Love, Unconditional Love, and the Love of God. While Falco's contribution was originally intended for the "Love of Community" chapter, the beauty and completeness of the writing prompted the editors of the book to place it within "Unconditional Love."
Here is an excerpt of the text:
"This heightened concept of Love is characteristic of the Divine, and when we are capable of expressing it, we pass from the animal state onto a path of realization and enlightenment. Making form Divine corresponds to transforming form into Love: Form becomes Divine when it identifies itself with the full breadth of Love. At this time, the human race is a "bridge species" between the material plane and the spiritual plane. As such, we are the bearers of a Divine seed which is realized when, on the path of discovering, recognizing, and nurturing the God contained in each one of us, we are able to express unconditional Love.
On the ideal path that leads us from evolution to enlightenment (and from there to a further successive metamorphosis) ... we will pass through various states of learning and applying the concept of love. The path inevitably involves relating to others, so the first act of Love cannot be a casual thing, but must be an act of will. How can we express Love and attend to others except by feeling Love? How can we transform ourselves, even at an organic level into something
able to express Divine Love, while still remaining inside the world of form?
To succeed in become aligned with the "other" in the realm of matter, we must first understand the complexity of the spiritual realm. We also must interpret the true value of things, for what can be more precious than another living being? And from this point of view, what can be more precious amongst living beings than other sentient beings? There cannot be anything else.
With the heart, and Love,
and the complete force born out of pure dedication,
real worlds are generated ...
I show new roads of power, inner and yet plainly shown,
portals that lead to other Universes ...
In the meeting of oneself, the whole of creation,
humanity and difference,
the completion of souls who have the courage to seek,
to search for and find one another ...
Love is also contemplation of the All ..."
