Love is the first step. The journey begins with love. Love begins with you. It chooses you. Somebody takes your breath away. Somebody sweeps you off your feet. You are flying in the air. The world seems like a beautiful canvas and everything falls into place for that magical period, commonly known as ‘falling in love.’
Love is misunderstood in many ways. Two things to know:
Firstly: Love is not yours to control. You have no command over it. You breathe in this fragrant fresh air, when love is flowing. Although you say, you love somebody, but love just happens. It is a part of The Happening. It is just there, suddenly. Before a moment, it was not. And for some moments, you lose your head, your rationality, and fall in the lovely ditch.
Secondly: Love is just the beginning. Source is the destination. Love is always from the source, of the source. A happening. It is to take you home, to meet your father, the Godfather. Love is a knocking on your door from the Existence. It reminds you about the Happening. It helps you to leave yourself behind. It is a live phenomenon. It grows; Just like a child grows. It grows into Prayer. Love towards someone is the love we know of. We refer to it as ‘I love him/her.’ Prayer is the love in total; a rainbow of love in all colors and fragrances. Love for all, is Prayer. It is not addressed to anybody in particular. It just is; to nobody; to nothingness. Love flows from your being. It is not for some person. It is for all and it is for nobody. It is the totality of love. You are not there anymore to be able to love. You are love. You become love. A separate ego is not alive anymore. Love is then a state of your being. You dissolve into the happening.
This is blossoming of love. This is Prayer. Prayer happens. There is no God left behind, neither is a devotee. They both merge into the Prayer. The show’s over. Only Prayer is. Love, all-pervasive, formless, person-less, dimension-less is; everywhere.
