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!

Dreamy world

“Open your eyes, for this world is only a dream.” ~ Rumi

When do you dream? Do you like being in a dream?. Sleep is a beautiful part of life, as it kind of erases every thought for that moment of sleep. When we can sleep peacefully, almost instantly, wherever you can – is considered a blessing. Why is that as children we can sleep so peacefully and as we grow older, we tend to sleep less and less? It is simply because nothing matters so much when we are fresh in this world. We are able to let go easily. We move on. The more older we get, the more we want to hold on to. The reason we want to hold on to – is because we do not want to lose our hold, our ego and our place in this world. We are scared somehow of the limited time we have on this planet, the more when we grow older – so that we want to use every moment to establish what we want. It is also fear that drives us to stay awake as much as we can. We are fearful of leaving this world, dying. We want our dream to stay on, we want to enjoy the view.

You dream vividly with closed eyes, only when we open we see the reality.

What we are supposed to do be is exactly opposite of what we already know and what we thought is reality. When we want to dream we are sleeping, we think opening the eyes to this world is reality. If we realize and turn it around – when you open and see this world, we need to realize it is a dream in itself. We are all living in this real dream. The dream of life. What we need to do is really open our eyes. We have to open our true eyes within ourselves, that is what will show us what is the real world. The real true you, rather than this amazing dream. The dream which we have started to own and associate as real. How much we have thought it as real, that we fight for survival, hang on to things which were all made in this dream like money, relationships and faiths. All of this are bound by only rules of this dream. The minute you wake up, this will seem only like a distant memory. Let us realize that this entire life is going to flash in front of us sometime and it will pass like how a dream really passes through us. That makes our life now much simpler. There is no reason to fight over anything – or argue over anything – or repent over anything – it is all a dream. This will also pass.

Open your eyes to yourself. All this drama of your act in this dream will seem silly. Laugh over it, enjoy these moments in this dream – take only things which matter as memories. None of it that was created in this dream will matter soon. They will all vanish very quickly when you wake up in the morning, that morning when you leave this body and see your life fully – that is the morning which will matter. nothing else really truly matters.

Noisy silence

“Your noise is my silence.” ~ Rumi

When you are in silence, you are totally with yourself. You are introspecting, you are looking inside you, you are contemplating, you are satisfied and calm – more than anything you are at peace. You are at peace because you have taken a few moments in your life to recount yourself, you know that the answer is within you for most of your questions. That silence of being with yourself comes from being with you being in the right environment. The place exudes beauty for you, it is special for you and it is not the same for someone else. It is a place where you you are in bliss. This does not make sense for many people – as they cannot be at peace there. It is not for them, but exclusively only for you. It might happen that place is crowded, noisy, loud, small and cramped, dirty or even dingy. That place gives you the most comfort. There are such places in our lives, either the place where we grew up or the places which have left an indelible mark in our minds. It could be also with someone where the location does not matter. You could be totally at peace with that special soul, no matter where the world takes you. You are at peace the minute you are with that soul.

Being at peace amidst all the noise, is your true nature.

When that place or someone is with you, you are able to be about yourself. It is no longer the difference in you and the place or you and the other, all you see is oneness. You do not take yourself away from that place. You are so much with that place or person Рyou are completely in peace. That peace leads you to realization. No matter what is happening around you, no matter what the other person is saying, you are definitely moving towards realization. Nothing else matters at this point. You are so convinced that you are in the best place and the best situation that automatically you go deep inwards within you. That is what the noise is about. That noise which makes you feel safe, be aligned and be so comfortable. The baby is comfortable in the womb no matter what noises comes, as the baby is so convinced that the mother will take care.  This comfort also comes because of the enormous trust you have on the place or the person. The minute you place such a trust with a soul, your life transforms to realization.

Go ahead, find that place, identify that person who is going to take you there. Place all the trust, drop all the expectation, being at peace and being calm amidst all that noise is going to liberate you. You will be in bliss from that minute.

Graceful love

“You cannot learn about Love, love appears on the wings of grace.” ~ Rumi

What is grace? when is the time you feel you are very graceful? Grace originates when you are calm, focussed and satisfied. The more we are able to observe and accept ourselves is when we are able to be graceful. Obviously grace can be seen in two ways – When we comment dancers are graceful and another when we receive grace from god. Even when someone has to be graceful in dance, they have to accept themselves, not be conscious about dance, be focussed and at some level be completely satisfied. This is what reflects in the dance they perform. They end up being extremely graceful in presenting themselves. On the other part, when we have to receive blessings from god, we can never receive anything unless we are calm, focused and grateful for something which we already have. Either way grace is something which lends itself to you, when you are satisfied.

Satisfaction leads to grace and then to true love. 

When we are satisfied with ourselves and also satisfied with the other person is when truly we are in love. Satisfaction leads to acceptance. Only when we truly accept the other person with all their shortcomings and as they are, you are able to show true love. The minute you are either not aware of their true nature or you are not satisfied with yourself – you cannot experience true love. Only when you feel the grace and be graceful completely, you will discover true love. There is nothing to really learn about love. Love is a feeling which has to be experienced. It has to be sensed internally when you are calm. When you are totally satisfied with yourself and the other, you will automatically be in love. It can be with a person, a pet, a thing or even with god. Only when you are accepting the other unconditionally and be at peace within and be totally satisfied – love manifests itself. The minute we are not satisfied with the other, or not satisfied with ourselves, or are in doubt – you will see that love cannot be seen there.

Be satisfied. Be in grace all the time. Immerse yourself in peace. Love is already there.
