Divine love overflows to others once it has filled your heart. Love God with all your heart – and your neighbour as yourself – this is the secret of God-realisation. Love breaks down all barriers. Love is an open sesame to an infinite realm of bliss immortal. The learned talk of God but the poor love Him in their hearts.
Beyond logic, beyond intellect, beyond reason is the feeling of love and the embodiment of love – which is God. Argue not. Realise Him. Talk to Him with the language of the heart.
Do not gauge the Lord’s love and mercy by the material prosperity He gives you. Infinitely more valuable is the spiritual treasure He bestows upon His true devotee. Love is the dew-drop of divine grace.
Cosmic love is the threshold to the limitless domain of Brahmic bliss. Cosmic love is synonymous with supreme self-sacrifice or egolessness. In all beings lives the one God – the supreme being, the eternal Lord. Therefore bow to all beings with reverence, faith and devotion.
Feel that another’s difficulty is yours and relieve him of his difficulty. Then alone you will grow in cosmic love. Love is an actual substance that you can use with confidence. Love is a positive, concrete thing.
Love vibrates in the form of service, charity, generosity and benevolence. There is unity of life. Love of one’s Self is the true love of all life. All patriotism, love of one’s own nation, one’s own race, one’s own religion, are but limited kinds of love. Human love is but the stepping-stone to divine or universal love.
Love all. Behold the one common consciousness that indwells all beings, that is immanent in all names and forms. Spread the message of divine love, light and worship wherever you go. Love knows no fear. Love is the greatest power.
Love is the divine force of this universe. The purer you make your heart, the greater will be the power of your love. Be kind, be compassionate, be humble, be tolerant, be good, be just, be natural. Love the eternal in every being. Make no distinctions between one being and another. – Swami Sivananda
