You Are Pure Consciousness
An expression of Divine Love, Pure Consciousness is who you really are. Through love you will develop trust, patience and unity. When you have these you have everything.
Krishna lived in Vrindivan until he was sixteen, and then he went away. After he left everyone was sad and always thinking of Krishna. They thought that Krishna had forgotten about them. One day Krishna sent one of his devotees, Uddhava, to tell the people of Vrindavan that he had not forgotten them and that he continued to care for them.
When Uddhava arrived in Vrindivan, the gopies came to meet him. Even before Uddhava began talking, the gopies began criticizing Krishna. They said, “Oh, Krishna has forgotten about us; he has left us. He gave us so much love and then he withdrew everything and went away.” Uddhava laughed and said, “No, Krishna has not forgotten about you; he thinks of you every day. He had other work to do in another place, and that is why he left here.
The gopies could not accept what Uddhava had said and they kept complaining about Krishna. Uddhava then gave the gopies the message Krishna had sent. Krishna said, “All that is and all that you feel is just a game. I create; I protect and I destroy everything by my own will. And it all comes back to me. Maya, illusion, had created a veil of separation. This veil prevents you from seeing that you all are a part of me.”
Like the gopies, all of you are here also to remove this veil of illusion, maya. If we just drop deep in our heart we can feel this love, peace and happiness. How great it is to love. Become one with the Divine. Let yourself reflect who you really are, Divine Love, Pure Consciousness.
