'Freedays' are the 'gather our thoughts' days; Q&As; a general review of the week so far…
Love with the capital 'ell'. Universal Love is the greatest of all Love. It knows no prejudice, no coercion, no selfishness, no meanness, no demands, no expectations… True Love holds without clinging, embraces without smothering, is present even in absence and knows how to release without guilt or angst.
Such an unconditional love is rare. To experience it, even rarer.
Even those who nurture such a love in their bosom are inclined to some small thought-corner of 'they are mine… am sad at this loss… after all, attachment is here…' To be able to love without any strings of entanglement requires an enormous balance of integrated personality. To expect it of others when we ourselves are incapable of it is to hold out for a dream, it seems. Where are we to find such a Love?
Within the field of spirit. One can only imagine how it must have felt to be in the presence of the Buddha, of the Christ.. Of any of the great saints and sages. A few are fortunate to have experienced it in the presence of such great teachers as Gurudev; indeed his Love is so great, it can be felt even in the presence of his direct disciples.
