What I want to share from my experiences is that love conquers everything.It is my hope that it will inspire the readers to open their hearts to the Divine. If we can try to understand that we all are equally part of the Divine and are here to achieve this greater Truth and to realise our Self - if we make this our goal and do everything with Love…then everything will be lovely and you will always be happy.

Work towards knowing the Oneness of God.....

It is very simple and easy to offer your heart to God. So, whenever you think that you have to offer something to the Lord, first inside of you, offer your heart to Him saying, “Lord, I offer You my heart. It is not mine anymore, it is Yours. Make me love the way that You Love. Make me Realise this Divine Love.” Spirituality is just about a relationship to God and this Love relationship to the Divine will make you Realised. When you love somebody, you are not scared of anything. In the same way, when you love God, you should not be scared of anything. When you love somebody, you will do anything to please that person. In the same way, when you love God, try your best always to please Him. When He sees that you are trying your best to please Him, He will run to you and He will give you liberation, He will give you Self-Realisation. Work always towards Self-Realisation, towards God-Realisation, and make this the aim of your life. He will provide you with everything. Whatever you need, He will give you. In the Bible, Christ said: If the Lord is giving the birds their food, is giving the ants their shelter, in His eyes don’t you need more? God is ever looking after everybody. You have just to trust that He is looking after you, to trust that He is with you all the time. Whatever you do–good or bad–He is there. His Love pervades everything. If one-percent of your heart opens up to this Divine Love, it’s enough. Work towards this opening of your heart. Work towards Self-Realisation. Work towards knowing the Oneness of God, beyond all limitations that human beings put in place. We place limitations. We say “God is only this; God is only that.” But, when we place our limitations on God, then is this really God? This is not God. He becomes only the limited concept that we have of Him. Limitation is ignorance in man and knowledge is what removes ignorance. I mean the knowledge of the Divine, the inner knowledge, this knowledge that you have inside of you. When you have certain knowledge one day you will have to let go even of it, because you don’t Realise God either with ignorance or with knowledge. Knowledge will bring you only to a certain point of Realising the Divine, but to Realise God, to truly know the Divine, you have to cross over everything, go beyond all limitations.

To Realise God you have to cross over all the barriers that the mind puts in place. And, as I said before, the easiest way to do that is to chant the Name of God. Then the mind will merge completely into the Divine Name and become Divine.

Listen to this beautiful Song *I give you my heart*...
