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.

When somebody knows a song by heart their eyes are always closed.....

You see, when you sing bhajans, I noticed many people had their eyes wide open, but if you close your eyes, you will meet Him inside of your heart. The mind gets distracted very easily on the outside. By looking with these eyes, you get distracted. You say “Oh that is beautiful.” You think it is beautiful, but it’s not beautiful. The beauty lies inside of you. Even if you are looking at the beauty on the outside, what you have on the inside is much more beautiful, because what you see in the outside will fade, but what you see in the inside will never fade. So when you chant the name of the Lord, look inside and you will find Him. If you open your eyes and look in the outside, you will just see Maya. Maya, Maya, Maya. You will be in Mayajaal, nothing else! You will be in the play of Maya. That’s why, when you look at somebody who is really enjoying the bhajans, when someone is really enjoying the singing, what do they do? Their eyes are always closed. When somebody knows a song by heart their eyes are always closed. Why? It’s because their concentration is deep inside. It’s the same thing when you sing for the Lord: try to close your eyes and find Him inside of you. Don’t let yourself be distracted by the outside, because it will all disappear and so you will find the real One!
