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!

Love now

“Now is where love breathes.” ~ Rumi

We have started taking love for granted. Love is something which is started by the body, we realize it sometimes goes to the heart. Most of the times, due to this material world we are attracted to physical appearances. Especially when physical appearances combined with words which make us temporarily happy – we construe it for love. Some other times when we meet someone we know it is beyond the body, we tend to exude love which we cannot control. But your heart suddenly beats for that person or place. You feel automatically at exuberance, at your peak of happiness. Some other times even better, we just feel extremely comfortable, at peace. That is not connected to any physical changes in you. It is just limitless joy and a sense of complete satisfaction. That feeling which you never had before, never experienced before, but just completely engulfs you. This also combines with a familiar feeling of knowing this before sometime, but not relate to it. You keep thinking that you know this feeling, but cannot remember. That is love. This might not be for a person alone, it can be for a place, thing or environment. That feeling of being with yourself.

Love cannot live if you bind it to conditions. Love must be unbound, unconditional.

We generally connect love to “I loved you because….”, “You were so different, I loved you then…”, “If you become this…I will love you”. We tend to connect love to conditions. There is no real love then. Love is bound to certain of your mind’s conditions. Love is not breathing then. What happens when you unbound love? How does unconditional love feel like? You have no memory of the past nor expectations of the future. All that is there is that moment that you feel totally and completely at peace. That moment can only happen if you are absorbed in the present. The “now” is totally devoid of any memories. Every moment is new, every moment is special and it is an opportunity to live it fully. If we lament about the past or aspire for the future, we are not experiencing what that moment is meant for. That moment is for you to experience that love which is around you. Find solace in that love which is totally unconditional.

It is time to first understand what that love is. That love which is devoid of any connections to the known you. If you are able to associate any love to any part of your body or heart – think more carefully. That kind of love is linked to satisfying your needs in the future or based on your past experiences. Love has to be that feeling of the moment which makes you comfortable, makes you at peace rather than increasing your passion or lust or attraction. Love that makes way for peace, calmness to appear and give birth to compassion. That is pure love. That is a feeling which can only happen in the now. Find that place, person or environment and go back there, go back home.

Corners of love

“Love is such a vast sea, it has neither edges nor ends nor corners.”~Rumi

Love is such an amazing feeling. It is also scientifically proven that when we are in love, our brain works differently. Love cures everything within us. Love focusses you and love is the only thing which makes you constantly smile. When we are in love we tend to draw borders for our reach. We want to be in control of our love. We want to own our love as much as we can. With the need to own comes a lot of expectations and possessiveness. We tend to bind the beloved to us and we want them with us no matter what happens. When there is a even slightest thought about them not being with us, we get furious. Anger always follows possessiveness. The more we hold the beloved tight, the more we suffocate the beloved. The minute you get angry, please watch that suspicion follows you. These are the qualities of love which do not make it love. Expectation, Possessiveness, Anger and Suspicion. These are giant killers of love . We always feel that this is what love is. Look around, you will find these qualities which is driving most of the families. Why do you think that today’s love is completely ridden with such problems?

We are now “falling” in love, which restricts love. Only when we “raise” in love – it opens up beyond borders.

Whenever you have borders to anything – be it your thoughts, your work, your mind or your heart – it starts to contain you. Love’s nature is unconditional. You cannot express love based on certain conditions. The minute you remove the borders, you will see you will soar. It is one of the most difficult acts. To remove the borders of love, to make it like a sea, to grow in love – you just need one quality. Trust. The more you trust your beloved, you will see all the negative thoughts of love start to disappear. Expectation does not find a place as you will start realising the beloved is yours no matter what they do or they don’t do. You can never be possessive of anything which you trust the most. Over a period of time that trust even goes beyond the beloved. Possessiveness is attachment to the present form of the beloved. Trust makes you go beyond that present form. Anger is replaced with calmness the minute you have trust. Anger gets replaced by patience. If your beloved is not in his/her best today, you will wait for the best day to come. When that day comes, you will relish it beyond doubt. Trust kills suspision. Period.

Grow in love. Take your beloved with complete trust. Remove expectations. Remove the borders of your love. Consciously make your love unconditional. Every day, you will relish your love. Love is beyond edges and corners. Your heart is limitless.
