Love’s child

“I am a child of love.” ~ Rumi

When you are in love, many things do not matter. Everyone around us thinks us to be insane, but we continue to bask in love. We enjoy that very moment and we are oblivious to everything else. The true nature of love is to let go of everything. Any fault does not matter for love. You do not expect anything except that you be in that love. Nothing else matters. Remember the time you were in absolute love, you did not want to eat, sleep, talk, move or do anything. You just enjoyed being in that moment, in that love completely. That love is precious, rare and unique to yourself. It is also true that what you feel at peace with the moment, might not be for someone else. Every individual has that moment of love, that moment which they do not want to give away. Love increases multifold if you are able to have a conversation in silence with the beloved. It is not words that grow love, it is the lack of it. If you are able to quietly communicate, your thoughts and feelings expand multifold. It is such a wonderful feeling to be in love and be loved, and understand and be understood and be romantic and be romanced – all without uttering a word, without an action. A mere glance of an eye, the presence of the beloved or just a simple thought of the other – gives you so much peace and love.

We all are made of just pure love, all we need to do is to unlock the heart.

When you are a child of love, you just live now. You are devoid of expectations and just want to enjoy the moment. More than anything, you are a child. A child has no pre-conceived notions, nor expectations of tomorrow. The child just resonates with the present and enjoys the moments around it. He or She smiles to the environment and does nothing but to emanate love. The child just melts away your thoughts and brings you to realize the precious moments of love. Being with that child just makes you calmer. When you start being in love and emanate love unconditionally to everyone around you, you become that child, you make the place more peaceful and calmer. You do not distinguish from one to another. The love in your heart for your beloved, emanates to everyone around you. You give and receive love. The more unconditional it is, the better the environment becomes. You just become the centerpiece of attention in any place you are. People naturally come towards you, no one can reject true love, everyone needs a bit of pure love, everyone gravitates towards love.

Be a child, a love’s child. That innocence of not differentiating anyone to receive your pure love, that love which does not have any expectations of the future nor the memories of the past, that love which is unconditional, that love which makes everyone bask in your positive thoughts, that love which has nothing to offer except peace and that love which never ends. All you have to do is to open up!

Silent Love

“Love said to me, there is nothing that is not me. Be silent.”~ Rumi

We are full of words. We want to express, we want to be heard and we do not want to stop talking. Look around us, look at us. We want to speak. Given a chance to speak amidst someone we rarely watch ourselves. We want to establish our authority amidst wherever we are. We use our speech for that. The more we want to be heard, the louder we tend to speak. We have now grown to speak so much, that even before someone finishes a sentence – we are ready with our answer. We have lost the art of listening. That being one way, the other way is being convinced that we can only be heard when we speak. We are so much in belief that if we don’t speak, we will never be heard. In this life, it has become such that if you are quiet – then you are ignored. We have many lessons that only when you make noise, you will get what you wanted. We are totally surrounded by noise. When we look at nature, it remains quiet for sometime. Even the trees stand still, the river moves ever so quiet, the ocean has its quietness just after the beach. How do we even start visualizing a moment when we are really getting what we want, but without uttering a word? How can we be sure that we are being heard? How can silence really communicate how much we mean to others or how much they mean to us?

Every thought in silence runs really deep. Trust the silence to be heard well.

When you really want to communicate in silence, you have to build trust. You have to trust the other person that they are so tuned to you, that without you uttering a word, they are hearing you well. Nature has a way to send your message across. If that message is immediate and relevant, it will reach the other instantly. If the time is not yet ready, it does appear to take time. How can you know all of this, if you do not trust? Trust is so inherent in love. You have to place everything you know and do not know – on the present moment and just be. That living in the present is full of trust and life. You do not have any expectations on seeing an expression or reply in words from the other person. When everything around you is love, how can your message not reach the beloved?. It is such a beautiful moment of wait – when you really trust and accept and wait. Even if you have to express happiness, anger, frustration or extreme affection – trust, accept and wait. Love will make you heard.

It is hard to visualize how silence can really communicate. Silence not only allows you to communicate externally – it is the only way to communicate internally to yourself. When you stop speech – your soul does the talking. That is not just a talk, but a unique melodious song.
