“Radical” Spiritual Wisdom and Practical Instruction on Self-Transcendending Love and Service in All Relationships
His Divine Presence Parama-Sapta-Na Adi Da Says:
To be human is to love, to forgive, to concretely handle all business, to purify, to set oneself and all others free, to generate a circumstance for continued existence that is not time-bound so that you can have time to invest yourself in timeless activities —meditative feeling-Contemplation of the Divine.
Never submit to hatred. This discipline is difficult, yes, it is always difficult. But it is your obligation. See what a wound life is. I Call you to forgiveness, love, acceptance of limitations. This is what love requires. This is what love does… If you enter into this process of self-knowledge and knowledge of another, it will break your heart. It did mine! Yet as dreadful as it is, it is the best thing I ever did. The best thing that could possibly happen to you is for you to become a raw nerve-end, a broken heart, unconsolable, with sorrow on your face and ecstasy as well, no longer a conventional man or woman,no longer able to put on a social face — incapable of it, with no argument, no anger, no feeling rejected, you responsible and you dying, and no absolutes coming to you through the bodies of others.
Everything you console yourself with is a lie. When you get down to the bottom of it, broken-hearted in your distress, maybe you will discover what ‘in love’ is. It is not about what you must do. It is about transcending yourself, about not fulfilling yourself. And it is not amusing. It is passionate and it is terrible. ~ From the Essay titled “Forgive” in ‘The Incarnation of Love‘
