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.

If you write the name of God inside your heart, what will happen?

What happens when you clap your hands? You know on your hands there are lots of meridians. All these meridians are connected to certain inner organs, such as the heart, the liver, the kidneys. So, while clapping you are sending certain energy there. So, if one of these organs has an energy block, it helps release it, so that this inner organ may function in a better way. That’s why when you’re happy you are always clapping the hands. Why when you are happy do you clap the hands? Because it generates, also, happiness and joy. Everybody wants to be happy and everybody wants to be joyful, but there are two kinds of happiness and two kinds of joy. There is a certain joy that lasts only for a short while, a short-term happiness. But, are you looking for that or you are looking for a longer happiness or a longer joyfulness? So, while chanting, when singing, you are expressing yourself, also, by certain movement, which creates this inner joy and this inner joy is connected with love. So, simple joy: you can find it everywhere. Even on the corner of the street you will find it, because simple joys are just the limitation of things you find in the world. So the easier you get it, the easier you lose it. Whereas, the eternal joy is within you and you have to dig deeper inside of you. You have to unite your mind with your heart to find this eternal joy, to receive the grace of this eternal joy. And, the easiest way to find it is to sing, sing the name of God, you know, because while singing the name of God you’re happy and this happiness will awaken this Love. We can talk about Love, but as long as you don’t experience it or you don’t feel it, it’s difficult to understand. And, if you really want to feel it, it’s easy to feel it. You have to quiet this mind and awaken your heart and, when your heart is awakened, Love will flow. And, in Love there is no difference, you know. It crosses all the barriers of difference. That’s how God loves and how human beings have to love, but very often it’s very difficult. We try our best to love like that, but it’s quite difficult, because there are so many things on the outside that disturb the mind, so many things that stop one loving. But, one has not to lose hope, one has to keep trying and trying. And while you chant the Divine Names, this awakens this Love and makes you, also, strong. That means that when you sing the name of God, you are calling, you’re asking Him to awaken within you, you are asking Him to come to you and to reveal Himself to you. The more you do that the more he will reveal Himself as this Love. The more you long for Him, the more you will love to do your sadhana, the more your mind will be controlled. And, when your mind is controlled, when you have peace of mind, you will be peaceful. You will be peace in your body and you will bring peace this peace to your surroundings. You will be an instrument of this Divine Love. But, as this first step, you have to not only be contemplating in the outside, but you must contemplate within yourself and find God.

If you write the name of God inside your heart, what will happen? You will also float, but you will float in Divine Love, you will float in Divine Ecstasy, Divine Joy.
