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.

This identity, which has been given to you when you were born, is that really you? ....

Whichever name you feel close to, chant it! Chant until you become the Divine Name yourself. And it is possible, I tell you! It is not something that is not possible, you just have to try it! If you try it, you will succeed in chanting the Divine Name with every breath you take during the day. You breathe 21,600 times in 24 hours. So, if you practice consciously during the day, chanting the Divine Names all the time, you will be chanting even while you are sleeping. It will become a Japa Mantra - a mantra that is chanting by itself. It is not you chanting it, but it is chanting automatically inside of you. With each breath that you take in and out, you will recite the Divine Name and you will transform yourself. First, you will transform inside. You will feel the joy, you will feel the freedom, the happiness, inside of you and, of course, this will not just stay inside of you, but it will reflect also on the outside. You will become an instrument of this Divine Love; you will become an instrument of the Divine, so that you may become Divine yourself. You will realise this unity between you, which is the Atma, and God, which is the Paramatma. But the you which is gross on the outside, which is just made up of the Pancha Tattva – the five elements - will dissolve itself. This identity, which has been given to you when you were born, is that really you? It is to a certain degree. Whatever is created from the Lord is real, also, because He infuses Himself into everything. But this is not the Ultimate Reality. Only when this minimum reality that you call reality and which the world itself looks at and says, “That´s real,” dissolves itself, the Ultimate Reality can reveal Itself inside of you. So, practice! In simple words: chant the name of God all the time. Remember the Divine, whatever you do, wherever you are, the Divine is with you.

Once you drink the cup of Divine Love, you will see the world completely differently. This Love is pure nectar, and to understand it, one has to drink it.
