Crossroads In Life

Sri Swami Vishwananda  "On the spiritual path we are all learning. We are learning to attain God, but first of all we are learning to rise above our mind [where our crossroad decisions appear]. And if you really want to be spiritual, be positive. Train yourself to be positive." 

Bhagavad Gita: “For those who wish to climb the mountain of spiritual awareness, the path  [where our crossroads lie] is selfless work. For those who have attained the summit of union with the Lord, the path is stillness and peace".

Bible:"Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good (godly) way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls."
 - Jeremiah 6:16 – Bible

Pranam Babaji,
Salutations to Satguru Avatar of Prem Sri Vishwananda Maharaj - Who is The Embodiment of Pure Divine Love, the Living Manifestation of the Egoless Divine Consciousness of Oneness!

Swamiji said: "If you have not developed completely love inside of you, you have not reached anything."

"The feeling of love is what life is about(...), love which is veyond expression, unconditional and in everything."

"(...) the more one developes Pure Love for God, the Love gets so intense, that even He(God) is running after her (Prem) - it is beyond physical, external form in it,s purest form(Divine Love)."

Pure Divine Love is not an emotion - as we humans think, it is our existance, our Self in God.
Pure Love is complete surrender.
Complete surrender is losing oneself in the Divine. It starts where the "I" disappears in Him completely. In reality there has never been the "two" - but only Him. Pure Love is the climax of everything, the Self-fulfilment and loving just for the sake of loving, it is reposing in the Bliss of the Divine ecstasy. In Pure Love the "other" disapears and we fall in love with the love itself. we become "Love-able." - one with the Whole.
Love is Infinity. It knows no limits of transcending itself into ever new expansion. One can never say, one has loved enough. The other name for love is - the longning ... eternal longing for the unlimited Divine Love.
In Pure Love mind dies. The mind is synonimous with fear and agression. Anger is born out of fear of the unknown. The mind is challenged by the unknown. It is scared of disappearing, of losing "control", scared of something limitless - the losing of the ego in Bliss. But it is that very self-forgetfulness which each soul deeply yearns for!
Only the satguru through His guidance and Grace can guide one through the "death of the mind - personality of our ego" into the re-living Divine Oneness.
Once one has met the atguru one needs to challenge the mind by completely hading oneself to the Satguru,s Divine guidance. Pure Love has to be experienced - it can not be understood.
Durrendering oneslef to the Satguru is surrendering oneslf to God Himself.
One,s soul yearns to fall in Pure Love with Love Itself and only the Satguru can take one safely to the Ultimate Love.

Pranam and All Glories to Satguru Sri Vishwananda! JGD
