Why Does Love Diminish?
Krishanji, why does love diminish, even toward the close ones?
Love is forever, but where you keep it makes a difference. A river at the source is pure, but it gets altered as it travels through the crowds. Similarly, love in the Soul is pure, but it may get tainted when it is moved to the mind. Expectations & demands make love frail. Judgments, criticism, and desires scar its beauty and allure.
The ways of the worldly mind are different than that of the Soul. You must experience the world but must also slowly march toward your Soul. There only, you will experience that your love is forever, and for all. In Soul, love remains pure and real.
A mature seeker functions in the world as needed, but he lives only in his Soul. Additionally, living in his Soul, he remains lower than the one he loves, a great secret of lovers. Didn’t you hear Kabira say that He was the lowest of all? He loved all. He lived in His Soul. You can do that too. Simplicity is the way.
