Part 1

LOVE FOR ME EXPECTS MUCH MORE THAN THIS

 
What does 'Love' mean? We find volumes and volumes written. There are very few who have found out Love and who have it.

None present here loves Me as I ought to be loved. You are not conscious of My real State, because you do not love Me as I love you.

The Mandali is fully prepared to lay down their lives for Me. Even they do not love Me as I love them. Had they that Love, they would become one with Me.

You and I remain divided by no other veil than "you" yourself, i.e., 'I' in you. For example, you see a very beautiful girl and you will fall in love with her. There is so much unrest. Your whole mind is on that. You forget hunger and sleep etc. I am talking of real love for worldly beings (not mere lust).

But love for Me expects much more than this — much more than a fish out of water. It is not easy for all. Rarely one person can try to cope up with that Love.

Had I been in your place, I would not have been able to love Myself as I ought to be loved. This is a fact.
