Everything moved is moved not in something moved, but in something at rest.
— Hermes Trismegistus, Corpus Hermeticum, 2.6
Love, or giving, is the principal ordering principle of the universe.
All physical matter — the atoms and molecules, the building blocks of the universe — is “constructed” of waves.
All known waves, are simple motion. Motion that is described as being in, of, or through, a medium.
The medium, when at rest — which is rest — represents potentiality.
Potentiality becomes actuality, only when the potential yields. Or gives. Of its-self. Of its essence.
It is evident then, that the Principal principle of the universe, is Perfect Love.
Of one’s self.
The one who truly loves, gives.
The one who truly loves — in the moment, in the actualisation of True Love — neither needs, nor desires, to take.
For in being Oned with that Infinite Potentiality, (s)he senses, becomes aware, of a great truth.
That (s)he has no needs, and no desires.
For (s)he already possesses — in oneness, with Infinite Potential — every thing.
(S)he is content.
It is from real-eyes-ation of this True Contentment — an Infinite Content-ment — that the potential for Infinite Giving is made actual.
If you consider the matter carefully:
rest is oneness which enfolds motion,
and motion is rest ordered serially.
Hence, motion is the unfolding of rest.
— Nicholas of Cusa, De Docta Ignorantia, 1440
