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.

The Unique Love Relationship with God....

Human beings on the spiritual path or in the material, in the working field, they become envious. When envy enters the mind of man, man becomes blind and when man becomes blind, he doesn’t see the light anymore. Your true Self needs this light to survive, but the way the mind functions drags you into illusion. When this envy enters the mind, one steps away from this light, or the light starts to diminish within oneself. What happens is – it’s like you have a mirror, you clean the mirror, it is beautiful, you can look at yourself nicely, but after some time the mirror accumulates dust. What do you do? You clean it! All the qualities of the mind like envy, jealousy, pride, ego, when these arise, it is very difficult to clean them. It’s hard, even when you try your best, they are there. Like when you clean the mirror to look at yourself, you wipe it clean, you don’t leave it dirty. Yet, when humans clean the mind, they always leave a certain residue of darkness inside. They don’t really want to let go of all of it completely, because this is a sign of insecurity in oneself. You say “If I let go of everything, what is for tomorrow?” Hasn’t Christ said “If God is looking after everything, He will look after you, also?" It’s the same if you want to change, you have to let go of all this negativity. You have to let go of all this darkness. You can’t keep this darkness and say “Yes, I am changed.” It’s the same when envy enters the mind. It blinds you, because then you will always be jealous, you will always be angry about your neighbour. If you see that your neighbour is advancing spiritually or the neighbour, your friend or your colleague is progressing, what will happen inside of you?  You will try to be competitive. You will try to compete with your colleague to be the best. Are you concentrating on your spiritual path, or are you concentrating on his progress? You should be happy if somebody is progressing, because when you start to
progress on this spiritual path, you develop this Love. Know that God’s Love is the same for everybody. Whether you are a wicked person or whether you are a saintly person it is the same, but the reflection is different. How much you reflect towards Him, He will reflect back towards you the same. That doesn’t mean that for a saintly person the Love of God is more or that He doesn’t love a wicked person. No, He loves everybody the same. That’s why He graced so many people who were wicked to become Saints, so they
could reflect this Love. This Love is unique. The Love for God is unique, because each one has a personal relationship and this relationship to the Divine is between you and the Lord. There’s no other person in between. The uniqueness of this Love dissolves all.
