Learn the ways to create and unconditional love for God
Q:I observe my thoughts and try to make my mind love God. But it’s tricky; my mind loves him because it fears to die. It wants to get rid of the pain it suffers from being alive and it can no more see the pain outside. It also wants to be free from jivan chakra, so it agrees to love him. But how can I love him just for his sake? With no other desire, just his love.
A: What you are asking is good and great, but you don’t get things just by asking. You need to go more deep into it. To have this desireless love in your heart, you have to clean it up and you need to build this passion for everything – world, objects, money, worldly applause, name and fame. You have to bring the roots of these hopes and desires out of your mind and slowly create this space in your heart and this vacuum where you don’t want anything which is mortal and changeable. You just keep on cleaning this heart and creating a sacred space in your heart and a day will come when this love will bloom. Until then, keep on praying, because prayers work well.
