As the heart expands with Divine Love, we find lots of love coming out from within us - love to animals and love to trees, love to fruits, love to flowers, love to those blossoming around us, love to the mountains, love to the sky, love to the seas and love to the nature around us. And as we establish this kind of love with each and every human being we meet, we permeate with love. Love one and love all. As this love goes on expanding, you find that the heart has expanded, and due to this expansion of the heart and the expansion of love, you start understanding the love of the Creator - the love of your maker. This is also a way of enlightenment because loving everybody around you, enjoying the beauty around you, loving every person you meet and enjoying the inner beauty of their hearts, you only see the goodness in them. As the mind has expanded and the heart has expanded, you only feel the goodness and love in others. As you do so, you find lots and lots of love oozing out of you and the most amazing and the beautiful thing about this is that you start slowly recognising the love, the care and the affection people are have towards you. That is the whole beauty of life.
People who misunderstood you earlier, people who had a lot of ill will towards you and people who would have abused you will now start liking you and loving you. As your own heart expands with this love, automatically, people will start liking you and loving you. Now you will find the absence of arrogance, the absence of cunningness, the absence of shrewdness and you will find the presence of love and acceptance. You find the presence of all goodness, you find the presence of people who are good to you, and also, you feel good with people’s presence inside you and around you.
As the mind expands with love, care, affection, understanding, pity, sympathy and nobleness, all these qualities are brought out in full glory because God says, “Yes, as human beings, you are doing My work of loving, caring and sharing for each and every soul that is born on this earth. So I bless you to become God yourself.”
The more the mind is allowed to expand with love, the more the mind automatically vanquishes itself. The more and more the heart expands with love, with acceptance, with care and with that kind of a sharing concept, then automatically, the mind is totally annihilated because all negative qualities and all scheming qualities go away. So let us fill our hearts and the hearts of others with love, love and love.
