…..'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'…..

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

Menorise PLUS - just a little bit more inculcation

Yesterday's post for Valentine's 'preparations' was fun... Today, a rather more 'D & M'** look at...


This is the most divine of the virtues. It is the diadem in the crown of virtues.

Love mends the broken, heals the wounds, embraces the aches, soothes the pains. Love quells the fears, makes sacrifices, inspires and serves.

Love conquers hatred. Love forgives.

Love seeks not for itself, it doesn't barter this for that.  There is no selfishness in Love. Love is goodness, honour and peace. It strengthens and ennobles the character.

We are talking here of Love with the capital 'ell', Supreme and Universal. Unattached, non-expectant, undemanding. It is the Love which enables a view of  नारायनभाव/ Naaraayanabhava - seeing the Lord in all and knowing all to be a manifestation of the Lord.

Love like this purifies and redeems.  It brings divinity into daily living.

This is not the base and common, acquisitive and jealous 'love'; the word has been misused, mistreated. It is used flippantly, lazily. We hear 'love' and assume much of it only to be disappointed.  Why are we so often thus?  It is because in our depths, in the core of our beings, we know and understand what True Love is and it far outreaches and out-performs what we get; the needy, the controlling, the clinging, the lewd and the lustful. 

Love has no 'use-by' date; it does not get bored neither does it seek beyond itself for answers.

Feel the world as if it were your own body. Feel the body as a temple of God/Universal Love.  Allow it to unite you with all who share this world, be they other races, other creeds; animal, vegetable, mineral. Unite with all. Universal Love is One-ness. Pure Love is the ultimate leveller. It brings equality and equanimity. Sri Ramdas, Hafiz, Kabir, Tukuram, St Hildegarde, St Thomas, St John of God…. All great souls have tasted this bliss.  What others have achieved, you can also.

 Little by little build your Love muscle!!!

** D & M = deep and meaningful.. this is a slightly edited post from YAM's Aatmaavrajanam Blog - it rather fit the bill for Feb 14th!!!
