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.

Sri Swami Vishwananda tells us a Story today......

Loving oneself is transcending the physical aspect. Through Love you will develop trust and patience. If you have these three: Love, trust and patience, you have everything else. This reminds me of a story. Krishna used to stay in Brindavan. He stayed there until the age of sixteen, then he went away. When he left,everybody in Brindavan was sad and always thinking of Krishna. They thought that Krishna had forgotten about them. So, one day, Krishna sent one of his devotees, Uddhava, to tell them that he does care for them. When he arrived there, he met the gopis and before he could start talking, the gopis started blaming Krishna, saying “Oh he forgot about us. He has left us. He had given us so much Love and then he just went away.” Uddhava was laughing and said “No, Krishna has never forgotten about you. He thinks about all of you every day. There is not one second that he doesn’t talk about all of you. The point is: He had other work to do, and that is why he went.” They could not accept it. So they keep on saying bad words about Krishna, but in a more loving way. There was so much Love in it that it didn’t matter. Then Uddhava gave the gopis a message that Krishna had given to them. Krishna said “All that is and all that you feel is just a game. I create, I protect and I destroy everything by my own will, and it all goes back to me. Maya, illusion, has created a veil of separation. With this veil, you can’t see that you are all a part of me.” That is actually why you are all here, to remove this veil. There are many lifetimes that you keep on playing the same game. You repeat and repeat the same thing, forgetting that the Lord is here, deep inside our heart. We are looking for Him on the outside. We are looking for Him in this world, but we can just drop deep inside of ourselves and find Him. Let go of the mind which is always busy looking on the outside. If we just drop ourselves deep in our heart we can feel this peace and happiness and enjoy it. You will see how great it is, how great it is to love.

To feel it from deep within you — this is the true Love of loving somebody. It is not only for one person but for everybody. Loving unconditionally.
