God and Love


The spiritual Path is like climbing up to the mountain-top through hills and dales and thorny woods, and along steep and dangerous precipices. But on this Path there can be no going back or halting. Everyone must get to the top, which is the direct realization of the supreme Godhead. All hesitation or sidetracking or resting in the halfway houses is but postponement of the day of true and final fulfillment.

You cannot be too alert on this Path. Even the slightest of lingering in the false world of shadows is necessarily an invitation to some suffering which could have been avoided if the eyes had been steadily fixed on the supreme goal of life.

If there is one thing which is most necessary for safe and sure arrival at the top, it is love. All other qualifications which are essential for the aspirants of the highest can and must come to them if they faithfully follow the whispers of the unerring guide of love, who speaks from within their own hearts and sheds light on the Path.

If you lose hold of the mantle of this Guide, there is only despair in store for you; the heart without Love is entombed in unending darkness and suffering; but the heart which is restless with Love is on the way to realization of the Unfading Light on the Unfathomable Sweetness of Life Divine.

Human love should not be despised even when it is fraught with limitations. It is bound to break through all these limitations and initiate the aspirant to the Eternal Life in the Truth so that the Lover loses his separate and false self and gets united with God who is the one matchless and indivisible Ocean of Unsurpassable Love.

The gateway to this highest state of being one with God is firmly closed for all who do not have the courage to lose their separate existence in the restless fire of Divine Love. I give my blessings to all who are thirsting for the full realization of divinity, for they shall be the pillars of the coming era of Truth and Love.
