The Basis of Creation Cultivate Love The Vision of Unity
God is won by Love 9 Qualities of Love

If a reason could be given for the purpose of creation, it could be stated most simply as "love". For the Lord to create the cosmos from the void of pre-time, there must have been a motive of special significance. Surely just the manifestation of material and technological marvels was not enough: the creation of men and nations was not enough. There must have been an element, which would justify and fulfill the creation.

Love was the reason and continues to be the justification. It is the attraction principle of divinity, wherein all creatures find their common origin and bond. Love is the energy of creation, which manifests as positive and negative currents. In the polarity of opposites, all creation came into being and forever afterwards seeks its union. In the return journey to union with spirit, the material form is purified and transformed into divine love and selflessness.

The basis for the entire world is the prema (divine love) of the Lord. Even if one is able to get by heart the essence of all the Vedas (sacred teachings) and even if one is able to compose poetry in a very attractive manner, if that person does not have a purified heart, he is a useless person. What other greater truth can I communicate to you?

The world is the field in which love grows and is harvested. It is a battlefield of the senses. Where the play of good and evil is acted out. Love vies against the selfish desires of the ego. The reality of unity struggles to overcome the illusion of separateness. The experienced of selfless love reveals God in the individual and within all creatures.

Love is the word, which indicates the striving to realize the falsehood of the many, and the reality of the One. Love identifies; hate separates. Love transposes the self on to another and the two think, speak, and act as one. When love takes in more and more within its fold, more and more entities are rendered as One. When you love me, you love all, for you begin to feel and know and experience that I am in all.

Unitive love is the fulfillment of life. It expresses itself as identification with all, for as we grow in spiritual awareness, we expand the bounds of our compassion. We start by loving family, community, nation, and ourselves. However, true love is gained only when we see through all false distinctions. When we see God in all creation, we cease to selectively love only some and not others. This awareness fulfills life’s promise.

The Earth is a great enterprise, a busy factory, where the product is love. By means of sadhana (spiritual practice), it is possible to produce love and export it to millions and millions of people in need of it. The more it is shared, the deeper it becomes, the sweeter its taste, and the vaster the joy. By means of love, one can approach God and stay in his presence, for God is love, and when one lives in love he is living in God.
