Soul and Spirit
The Perfect Love between Soul and Spirit
The greatest love you can experience is in communion with God in meditation.
The love between the soul and Spirit is the perfect love, the love you are all seeking.
When you meditate, love grows. Millions of thrills pass through your heart. If you strive to love all and to meditate more deeply, there will come into your life such love as you never dreamed possible. That is the love that Lord Krishna gave, and that Jesus Christ expressed for all of his disciples.
It is the love Jesus had for Mary. Martha worked hard for the Master, but her mind was on the chores, not on Him; Mary thought more of the Master Himself than of her work. Mary thought first to offer her love to Him, and then to others, shows her good judgment.
There is no one to whom we owe love more than to God.
And there is no love sweeter than the love He gives to those who seek Him.
All forms of human love have blind alleys. Divine love is the only perfect love. It is God who is playing hide-and-seek in the corridors of hearts, that perchance behind lesser human loves you may find His all-satisfying love. Therefore, love God, not for His gifts, but because He is your own, and because He made you in His image; and you will find Him. If you meditate deeply, a love will come over you such as no human tongue can describe; you will know His divine love, and you will be able to give that pure love to others.
In the consciousness of one who is immersed in the divine love of God, there is no deception, no narrowness of caste or creed, no boundaries of any kind. When you experience that divine love, you will see no difference between flower and beast, between one human being and another. You will commune with all nature, and you will love equally all mankind. Beholding but one race - the children of God, your brothers and sisters in Him.
True love is divine, and divine love is joy. The more you meditate, seeking God with a burning desire, the more you will feel that love in your heart. Then you will know that love is joy and joy is God.
