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.

What will lead to the Higher Love??.....

As it is mentioned in the Gita: Only when one develops Love, as Radha has for Her Beloved, will one attain the Beloved. Which means, like I have said: Only when one develops the Ultimate Love for God, will one reach the Divine. And how is one to develop this Love? In general, we know very well, that love is from the heart and we know it is there. You all know about it, no? Yes! We know that inside our hearts are full of Love, but yet, often we find it difficult to express it; we find it difficult to let it out. It’s because, in our mind, we are so limited by our barriers. We are so limited by our limitations. But if we know that Love is seated in our heart, why don´t we keep calling it? Let it out! It´s like this, let´s say, you go to my place and you know I am inside the house and you need me badly. What would you do? You would knock on the door; you would keep knocking. If there were a bell, you would keep ringing the bell. You would go around the house and try to find a way to get my attention. Am I right? You would do that. If this urge is really there, you will do anything for it. It’s the same thing with this Love that is present inside of you. But very often people say, “Ok, I want to feel it, but if I don´t feel it in a month’s time, I’m finished!” But it´s not like that. Love, whether it is for God or for somebody, love is love. We start by loving what is nearer to us, you know: what we can see, what we can hold, what will lead to the Higher Love. That´s why when two persons are in love, at the beginning, of course, there is this great love. But the love can grow more and more, if one let’s it grow. It is the same thing with the love for God that you have inside of you, if you let it out. Like I have said many times, you have to keep trying. It is seated inside, the Divine is seated inside of your heart. The real temple is not out there. It’s here where the real Lord is seated. The real church, the real mosque, is here and all of you know about it, whether you have felt Him or not. In the mind you know that God is seated in the heart and the mind, the power of the mind is so strong. You know it. When you worry a little, you can make the worry feel huge. It’s the same thing with love. If you know even in a small way that the Lord is seated in your heart, you can make yourself know in a big way. As you know very well, the power of Love is the only thing that
conquers everything. If you want to conquer God, conquer Him with Love. If you want to achieve Him, you will achieve Him only with Love. But the Love has to be pure and pure. It’s not saying, “Ok, I have been to the centre here, I have been to the ashram, I know. I have been to Shivaratri, so my Love is pure.” No, you have to make that Love pure inside of you. You have to train your mind to become positive. When your mind is positive and you know that the Lord is seated inside and you keep calling Him, there is no chance that He will not reveal Himself inside of you. Everybody, in the end, will reach the Divine, because the essence of your Self is only Him. And only through this Love, when this Love really gets awakened and becomes like Radharani´s Love, then there is no chance of not attaining Him. So, let Love rejoice inside of you, like I said, not only today, but always. And may you, by the grace of Radharani, become like Her. Like many other Saints, not only Radharani, but also among all the Deities who love the Lord, you will see that there is an expression of this Divine Love. If they could do it, we all can do it, also. If saints have achieved the Oneness with the Divine, be strong and say ‘yes’: you can and keep nagging the Lord inside of your heart until He opens the door and says, “Here I am, what do you want?” And be ready when He asks you what you want, to know, really, what you will ask Him.
