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.

One will develop this unconditional Love for the Divine...

Krishna Janmashtami 2011 with Sri Swami Vishwananda

When you are in love you always forget about yourself. Look, everybody has been in love. Do you think of yourself, when you are in love or do you think of the other person? So, the soul can always be in love with the Divine, no? So, you can always think of God. If we love God that way, then we will be detached, also, from whatever is attaching us to this world. We will be detached from whatever is stopping us from our advancement. We want Self-Realisation, we want God-Realisation, yet we don’t want to let go of everything. That doesn’t mean that you should renounce everything and become sannyas, no, but be in the world and know that everything comes from Him. Everything is Him. It’s only Him who gives and everything will go back to Him. As long as we stay in the circle of birth and death we will enjoy this play, meaning not only the enjoyment of being happy, but meaning enjoyment that is also painful, which you always complain about. So, if one wants to always stay in the circle, one will always be in the circle. But if one wants really to go out of the circle, one will develop this unconditional Love for the Divine, unconditional Love for everybody, unconditional Love for all His creation, because the unconditional Love of God knows no limit, knows no “I love this one; I hate this one,” and there is no judgment. It’s like a mother’s love.
