Let there be love

Love is to give. The more you give, the more you get back. This is an unalterable law. Life is like a bouncing ball. What you give comes back to you in a different way. If you give good, then good you shall reap. The stronger you give, the stronger you get back, in return.

Imagine a seashore without waves. Impossible right? The waves denote our karma, sometimes on the crest (good ones) and other times on the trough (bad ones). They say that the high tide and low tide is caused by the moon, the metaphor for which is the mind. The mind makes the waves.

For us, a thought evokes an action. The thought does not create karma. The action does. The sum total of our karma’s can either be positive or negative. Mind you, do not think about it mathematically. Here 2 + 2 may not mean 4. Good karma does not cancel the bad ones. In fact there is no relation between the two.

Once we cross the chasm of good and bad, we become absorbed in the supreme. Like the centre of the ocean, where the water is steady. Giving away in charity or in kind, should be without an intention, in the spirit of detachment. You really don’t have to put effort to love. You are born with the skill. So give away in ease, as much as you can.

Lots of love to you …
