The quality of one’s life is the quality of one’s communication. What we tell ourselves internally is more powerful than what we tell outside. Catch one’s inner self-talk. Anyone who says that the person has hurt me; abused me; insulted me and has put me down, such a person is living with such thoughts and lives in hate.
Let’s abandon hate and live in love
If one can abandon those thoughts of hate, of hurt and not entertain them, then one has abandoned hate. Hate exists in your thoughts and not in the incident. Thought is past, and hate is held by thought and hence hate is from the past. I have unfolded how thought is past.
The quality of your life is the quality of your consistent emotion. First, be aware of emotion from which one is operating from. Whatever one does, just put in the feeling of love. Love energy is caring energy. Even when you are bathing, do it lovingly. You have to create that energy as you do in vocal music. Only then there is melody.
Love is freedom whereas duty is bondage. In the space of inner freedom, love is born. Love without freedom appears as love. Love is pure freedom. I am free to love, whatever be the situations of life; they don’t limit my love. Love is dynamic energy and hence cannot be bound by a person or situation. In a deep sense, love is a state of ‘Being’.
God is love and love is God. Love is just not a relationship, but it is a state of ‘being’. So, let your approach to life be one of love. Love brings you harmony, peace and inner freedom. Meditative love is not a relationship but a space in which relationship happens. Love, therefore, becomes energy to bless the world. With this understanding, meditatively love and let your approach be of love. It has no name. We say we love money, love the country, love my opinion, love my sport.
Reflect on this. Little Ram comes rushing to his mother, hugs her and says, “Where is the moon; can you show me the moon?” Mother takes the child to the lake and points to the moon by holding his index finger in the direction of the moon. Both of them had their dinner and spent some time there. The child felt happy that it has learnt where the moon is. Next day the school teacher asked Ram, “Can you show me the moon?” Little Ram pointed at his index finger and said, “This is the moon.”
