Real Love Never Binds You

“True love and devotion can transform your narrow human existence in to the spacious expansion of consciousness that encompasses all. True devotion can work as a wonderful alchemy that can change all the mundane things in to the sacred and divine. When the mind is imbued with devotion to your own inner Self, all your thoughts and actions are liberated in the subtle presence of the guru as humble offerings of fragrant flowers of multiple colours. This is the meaning of true worship.
Real love never binds you; it makes you free. True love and devotion kindles your own inner light. Real devotion is not mindless and undiscriminating following of another’s whims or personality; it is not dumping your karma on your guru, relinquishing your own responsibility towards yourself; it is not standing in the long queue hoping to have a glimpse of your guru or offering some flowers showing your respect. Real devotion is an unbroken longing for the truth, which manifests itself as silent reverential gratitude. Real love is a humble receptivity of a silent heart that is prepared to melt and merge in the divine. — Excerpt from the bookAwakening Inner Guru” by Banani Ray and Amit Ray (This material is copyrighted, and published by permission from Inner Light Publishers)

Thoughts Cloud our Consciousness

“With little regards for our conscious permission, the mind goes on producing thoughts that float like clouds in the infinite sky of our consciousness. In a moment of excitement, fear, anxiety or anger, the thoughts and emotions become so dense that they completely cloud the inner sky of consciousness. The mind not only creates thoughts and emotions, it also gathers them from the environment. It stores the habitual thought patterns, ideas and impressions as the memory, which it brings up from its reserve, in appropriate occasions. It also recycles the thoughts that were stored as the memory, and produces dreams during the hours of our sleep. — Excerpt from the bookAwakening Inner Guru” by Banani Ray and Amit Ray (This material is copyrighted, and published by permission from Inner Light Publishers)
