The Way of Love

" 'Give & Take'- We are leading loveless lives precisely because we have lost the capacity to love, inmost cases. In the rest of the cases we are afraid to love. Love is a Commitment." - Chariji

It is astonishing that ninety percent of the people i come across, adults,children,everybody have problems with the parents or parents with the children. Of course, problems between couples is almost total.why?Again because we are not able to love totally.We are not able to give our heart.we only give a part of ourselves.
         A rich man gets companions by the dozen. Suddenly one night,he loses his money and next morning he is penniless.Everybody is gone, he is deserted,where was this love? Was it in his purse? But that is all you wil get if what you are  using is only your wealth, or your beauty or your strength ,or your ability.They are all physical limitations.
       A child brings something with love, the parent rejects it.The child feels rejected. It carries the memory of that rejection throughout its life to the grave. That bond is broken , the parental-filial bond. What does it take to remake it?
        A moment of intimacy. Go to your father and sit with him and say " Dad  I'm sorry" and he's waiting ,you know. His eyes are flooded with tears,you're both in tears.You hug each other and the moment is  made, your future life is made.

Happiness & Desires

"Happiness is inversely related to desires. If you have zero desires, your happiness will have a quantum jump & it will become infinite" - Kamlesh D Patel

How do we destroy our conditions and our humanity? It is mentioned in Gita: that when desires are not fulfilled there is disappointment. Disappointment leads to anger, anger makes you lose your balance, your mental equilibrium, you are destroyed and you lose your humanness. 
    Whatever we do or even think, or even will through our heart there are two consequences. Either the results are favorable or not favorable. When the result are favorable we are at peace, we have no other anxiety afterwards. We are at absolute peace when our action is fulfilled as per our expectation. When the results of the actions are against us, we are disturbed.
     Now when these things are handled properly and when things go right, you feel a lot of peace.

"Know all people as thy brethren and treat them as such." - Babuji
All things descending from the origin should be treated as coming from the same source.Just as children born of the same mother are related to each other in one and the same way, so also are all bound together by the same common tie of brotherliness and are related to each other in same way.
        The underlying sense had never been fully grasped.All are connected with the same reality,the central point by the effect of motion which set everything into action, it was really the effect of our own thoughts and actions that converted brothers and friends into strangers. It was due to our own feeling of selfishness that made them appear like aliens. This engendered separative feeling must now, therefore,be removed so that brotherly relations may be revived.
        The development of the feeling of universal brotherhood means the breaking up of the individual network that separated one from the other, and the close adherence to the tie of fraternity. It will naturally lead to mutual association and greater attachment and our dealing with one another will be moulded accordingly ensuring greater peace and contentment to everyone. How nice would it be to have it thus !.
