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.

There should not be any time wasted......

All your searching towards the outside is of no use, because at the end you realise that He’s always with you, deep in your heart. God is always with you. It’s like with the ocean where you have lots of precious gems. To get them, you have to dive into the ocean and go deep inside. So, God lies deep in the heart of man. With your mind you have to dive, dive deep within your heart, because everywhere are the waves of illusion. To achieve this Divine state you have to really love God. You have to start, firstly, to love yourself. You love everybody. Every day you say to somebody “I love you,” but how many times do you say to yourself “I love you?” It’s easy to love others, but some say that it is difficult to love one’s self. But I will say, “No, it’s not difficult.” See, when you love others, you see the goodness in others, but when the point comes to love yourself, you see all your negativity. Stop looking at the negative. It’s only through being positive that it can stop. It’s only when you start looking at this positivity and start thinking about yourself positively that you will dive deep inside this ocean. Then your heart will open up. Know one thing, when you become a lover, the Beloved is always with you - all the time. But you have to become the lover. You have to be madly in love with God the same way you are madly in love with your partner, for some time - for some time, because it usually doesn’t last long. You have to consider how Love is. Even in a normal relationship, you forget about everything when you are in love. All goes well. Then, after some time, it becomes such a routine. Then you get fed up. But the real Love, which you have inside your heart, you will never get fed up with, because that’s what you are made of; that is what your body, each cell of your body is made of. You just need to realise it and say to yourself, “I am part of God and I’m made in the image of God and I’m with Him, He’s with me.” When you realise this Oneness, you become this Oneness. I’m telling you, it’s not difficult. If you practice your meditation, sincerely, every day, you will achieve it. If you love sincerely, you will achieve it. If you serve sincerely, you will achieve it. But it’s upon to you to do it. The sincerity with yourself will be the sincerity that you will give to the outside. You have to become an instrument of God and you have to become an instrument of this Love. You have to become a jivan mukti, a Realised, Enlightened soul, right now. There should not be any time wasted. Spirituality is simplicity.
