“Let love be. Don’t give love a name. When you give love a name, it becomes a relationship, and relationship restricts love. There is love between you and me. Just let it be. If you name love as brother, sister, mother, father, Guru, you are making it into a relationship. Relationship restricts love. What is your relationship to yourself? Are you your wife, brother, husband, Guru? Let love be. Don’t give it a name.”
We get so caught up in relationships, we forget that the ultimate goal is to be able to learn to love unconditionally. Without strings, nor expectations. We always want to demand from others, and in the process, we loose our love for them.
Love is our very nature….we cannot but only love. just know that and be with it. Be grateful for all that we have and enjoy it.
“If you are unhappy, go out and serve. You will become happy…Unhappiness comes when you sit and think about yourself and brood about yourself and worry about yourself. The candle is burning for you, you don’t have to do anything. The sun is shining for you, there is nothing to do. You have to be grateful, sit below it and serve. Be in love. It’s as simple as that.”
You cannot achieve ultimate happiness/ silence/meditation without doing service. Both go hand in had. The more the service you do more dipper can you go inside.
Abundance is a state of mind within you.If you just look at “lack,” the lack increases in life. Don’t look at the lack in your life. See what you have. Then abundance increases. Just look at what you have. Focus on it, because where you put your energy that increases in life.
You think God is a person sitting up there. That is only in Michelangelo’s painting. God is not a person. God is a field of energy, like a magnetic field. The whole universe is pervaded by this field. In meditation, we are in communion with this field which has life, consciousness. Just like the invisible air, we sometimes experience the blessing, but God’s presence is veiled from us. Spiritual practices unveil GOD!
And Meditation, Spiritual practices are not that something for which you have to be saint or like that. You already do that. When you are in deep joy, exercising, in present moment, playing with kids, loving etc etc.
Before we can lead, we must serve….
Before we can serve, we must prepare….
Before we can prepare, we must learn….
Before we can learn, we must listen….
Before we can listen, we must be silent!!!
