The practical way to express love

In the material world, every pie [cent] counts. In the subtle world, every ounce of energy counts. In the mental world, the force of every thought counts. In the Beyond State, only God counts, and in the realm of the God-Men, everything counts as nothing and nothing counts as everything.

God does not listen to the language of the tongue, which constitutes japa, zikra,  mantras and devotional songs. He does not listen to the language of the mind, which constitutes meditation, concentration and thoughts about God. He listens only to the language of the heart which constitutes love.

So, love God and become free in this very life. This love can be expressed in various ways, ultimately resulting in Union with God. The practical way for the common man to express this love, whilst attending to everyday life’s duties, is to speak lovingly, think lovingly and act lovingly toward all mankind irrespective of caste, creed and position, taking God to be present in each and everyone.
