Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Real Love
"Many people say `I love you,' but is that real
love? If it is deep love, then it can never change
or be taken back. By loving, you give yourself
completely. You become one with the beloved and
you do everything for the sake of the beloved.
But what we call `love' these days is only a liking,
a desire, a temporary, superficial liking. If the
weight of the purse is reduced, the weight of the
love is also reduced. If the weight of the body
increases, the love reduces. See? Because that
so-called love is based on money or on a nice body,
that's all. You must love the never changing one
in a person. Love the inner Self, the divine in the
other. That is the real love.
"God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi.
