The principle of one power or love is a key to our happiness. But it our day-to-day experience seems to contradict this principle.
Yes, we do experience conflict and fear and suffering. But our question here is whether the experience of suffering is inevitable—whether the experience of suffering is an intrinsic part of the very fabric of reality, or is simply a reflection of our beliefs. Virtually all mystical spiritual traditions claim that suffering is not inevitable. They claim that it is possible to shift our level of consciousness and eliminate suffering from our experience, and experience deep and lasting happiness. This first principle of one power can be a valuable tool in making that shift—a valuable tool in undoing or eliminating the experience of conflict and fear caused by our belief in two powers, and allowing ourselves to experience happiness.
The principle of one power is that there is only one power, and that power is love. To say that this one power is love means that it is the infinite eternal creative potential for ever-expanding well-being.
To say that source is love means that source is pure positive energy, which eternally expresses itself as ever-expanding well-being. Well-being includes well-being in every area of life experience: happiness, peace, abundance, harmony, fullness, and wholeness. To say that this source is the only power means that the eternal creative flow toward ever-expanding goodness is the essence and truth of all reality, and the essence and truth of every now.
To say that love is the only power is to say that only possibilities of love and happiness are offered in every moment. Since there is no other cause, no other possibiities could be offered. The only question then is whether we are fully realizing those possibilities, fully realizing happiness. From this perspective, our experiences of unhappiness are due to our own failure to realize these possibilities.
