What is love?

In love we shall find God,

In love we shall attain peace,

In love is hidden our salvation,

In love is hidden salvations for others.

 

Love means to give and never ask,

Love means to give freedom and never tie,

Love means to receive whatever comes your way,

Without a grouse, complaint or a sigh.

 

Love means to endure, even if you think you can’t take it anymore,

Love means doing things for others which you never did before,

Love means giving respect for their ideas, beliefs and unique thoughts of mind,

Knowing that one day they will converge with yours.

 

All roads lead to one destination,

That is the abode of God,

No matter where, when we met and how,

All that matters is we have met at last with a purpose in mind,

 

Our love is true and must meet every test of time,

We both must hold hands together and must attempt the climb,

The next step of transformation and ascent,

To prove to ourselves that we have met with the wish of our Maker.

 

In these moments of utmost happiness and joy,

Let us not forget and enter the stupor,

Or else the purpose of our meeting will be lost.

So arise, arise, arise and arise and you shall climb.

 

Till you see the Light of the creator in you,

And re-awaken the Glory and Honour that was once yours,

So that the world will see you and

Through your grand work for the Divine

 

Will be reminded to others that

Do not be in a state of quiescent,

Know that the Light of God is present  everywhere,

In you, me and everyone.

 

Know that in God you shall find full rest and peace,

In God lies all the answers to all the queries of the fleeting world,

One cannot ever rest well unless he rests in God through his soul,

So rest your mind and body in God alone!

    Love explained so beautifully Ma…
    The white and pink roses in the picture signify Pure Love !!!
    Pure Love indeed is the most powerful force in the Universe and has the power to transform anything.
    Ma, what other post I could have read after Devotion?
    For Love is Devotion and Devotion with Love is all that we require.
    Gratitude and Love 🙂

      Dear Nazma, I am delighted that you unlike so many, have appreciated this poem of Love. It is tricky to grasp because it is written on multi levels. It addresses like Sufi creations on both levels- worldly and spiritual. Perhaps you may have found that out and have hence appreciated it. One must experience both kinds of love to be able to transcend to the formless godly love and should have undergone those experiences where physical love changes without our knowing into pure Godly love and two become one in Spirit.There is devotion also in this poem where somebody is praying and asking God to manifest His love in them as God’s love. Where and when this happens is not announced. Read once more to get hold of the nuances which go unnoticed by most people and taste the sublime joy that exudes here. Those who were victorious and those who failed in love, both should like this poem I feel for the reason that finally we all must melt and blend in God….
      Well, I have not written much on devotion barring a few articles so do not know at this moment which post to send you to.Maybe someone else will tell you, I mean the readers.
      Lovingly
      Ma

        Dear Ma,

        Your advice registered deep in my heart. I will read this post many times more to understand the deeper aspects of the topic.
        “finally we all must melt and blend in God….” is a point to remember always 🙂 .. Thank you so much !!!

    Beautiful poem. Somehow I appreciate this poem more now than the first time I read it a few years back.

    Gratitude <3

    Guru Ma, at some point of time may be millions or billions of year later, will all the souls meet the spirit and live eternally with Sat Chit Ananda ?

    Beautiful poem !!!!

    Dear Ma,

    Love is the only emotion. All other emotions are misinterpreted love by thought. Pride is loving mind and body too much. Jealousy is loving someone’s possessions and acting negatively with that person. Sadness is not getting what you love.

    Love energy can make us do unbelievable acts, we may surprise ourselves of our hidden capacities. We can access our unlimited potential with only love. Only love can transform and break cycles. It can remove deepest blocks and wrongly set limitations. Its pure light.

    Love is the language of the soul and also its building material. Being in a state of love for sometime everyday will help us remember and realise our true nature of unlimited pure love as it was, when we were a part of god. Meditation without the rasa of love becomes mechanical. Overtime I feel love is even better than mantra. The purpose of mantra is to become loving.

    We live in the delusion of mind and get trapped by dividing our ideas in good and bad. Only love removes the divisions and makes the mind One and therefore our perception of everything as One.

    Love can help us progress spiritually the fastest. It is the only vehicle to go beyond the mind. Only love can make us forget ego completely. It is the only sadhana for the soul.

    We must learn to consciously put ourselves in a state of love. We must believe that love can be created by us. Use the idea of god, guru, perfection or anything to put ourselves in that state. We must design our own methods depending on our own likes and dislikes. Nobody can walk this path for us.

    Thank you ma for being my inspiration and helping me feel the love within me.

      My dear Kunal, you have had such sublime experiences and yet you could articulate your feelings so well.
      One has to undergo sublime feelings like divine love to be able to understand what is love? What is God?
      So many times God comes to us as love. God’s love makes us complete and we wish to have no other thing other than that.
      We disintegrate our I and I am in such experiences. If we continue like this, then in the end, only God as love, very soft and subtle love is experienced.
      May God bless you so that you may experience more of Him as love and in return you feel loved and wanted unconditionally…..
      Yours Ma
