It is not easy to describe or explain Love in human words. This you can only feel within your Self. That is what, once you start feeling, you can feel who is your Guru, whom do you think you are being talked and persuaded and made to live in a particular manner. All that is possible. Everything is possible, humanly possible, but to love and to enjoy Love is not so easy unless and until you are immersed in it. It’s very gratifying, it is very lovable to see how people love each other and then this Love spreads. Love begets Love. If somebody has Love, it just spreads. You need not tell anyone, you need not confess it, but it will spread. And this is what one has to learn, how to see that Love in other person.
Somehow, we are here already in Love because of Sahaj happening. We all love and we enjoy love, shows on our faces that we are in Love, in our characters, in our lives, that we are in Love. What a thing, which is not very normal, becomes so normal and so easily available. It is a very big blessing that you are human beings and that this source of Love is there plus the feeling for Love is there. It’s a very intricate situation which cannot be explained in words, only one can be in it and enjoy it.
But today is the day when we are celebrating the Guru Puja. The greatest Guru that we have is Love. Sahaj Love is the Guru within us which teaches us, it somehow or other leads us. We are lead into that great line of understanding, for which we don’t have to go to any college, to any school for education. It is something so much within that it works and expresses itself, expresses like a light. Such people we can make out because they are fully enlightened. They have light and through that light they see the whole world which is very innocent and simple for them. We have love for our children naturally, we have love for our parents naturally. We have love for some people, but that love is different from God’s Love, I’m telling you, that has some connections, some meanings but this Love which is – cannot be described in words, has to be felt within.
Same, when you talk of your Guru, you should have that Love within you. Why do you feel it so much? The reason is Guru loves you and you love Guru. That’s the only reason why should you love your Guru. Now, there is no reason for that. Because Love is Love. That is how the Guru becomes very important in life. We have people who love their Guru and are very much in chaste understanding of their Love. Then this great opportunity of Love that we are, we are here to enjoy each other fully, from our heart, that there is this ocean within us, we have to just get submerged in that ocean. If we are lost in that ocean, then we’ll have no problems, no questions. Everything will be our own and we can manage everything without any argument, without any questioning. That is what is being Sahaj. The Sahaj way, if you have this Love you enjoy. You enjoy yourself and enjoy everybody else because it is Sahaj. You don’t have to make any efforts, don’t have to try anything. Just it is there and it works. The feeling of Love has no way of expressing itself. It is just there, it cannot express because it is without expression. It is just to be felt within yourself. Then you want to do so many things: you want to help everyone, you want to help yourself, you want to do good to others. So much has been done by great leaders of the world because they had that Love. They had nothing else but this Love which they could not contain them within themselves, so, they tried to spread it. And they are called now as our Guru, as our masters. With that Love within, which approached people in that unique manner. That’s the thing that we cannot possess, you cannot claim, it is there and it works. It works automatically. This is what we have to know that we are that Love. That Love is within us. We have to have knowledge, we have to have a complete knowledge that we are that Love. That will solve our problem, because you can explain everything, all your behaviour, all your failures, – everything you can explain when you know that you are endowed with that Love. This is what is the Guru, is the Love within you which wants to share Love with others, which wants to give Love to others. This is what is peace and joy. I can go on talking on Love, but to feel it within yourself is the biggest thing. Like water: if you are thirsty, we can give you water, but we cannot drink. You have to drink water and you have to feel the taste, feel the feeling, what it does, – and all that is together, that’s not separate.
I don’t think the subject was too subtle for you people. You all have reached a certain amount of understanding of that Love. I hope, it grows and you grow into it, all of you, and enjoy it. May God bless you!
