True love will not bring sadness, sorrow, misery or problems

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Drop these impressions of the past experiences with different people. They may have been wonderful. They may have seemed to be your soulmate for so many lifetimes! You may never have felt like that with anybody else before. When you talk of soulmates, you talk in terms of lifetimes; not just today! The mind goes on empty talk. It’s the v?san? (your impressions) that propel you. There is no weight behind them. Even when you tell somebody you love them, make sure that you are not saying it out of your v?san? , your own impressions, your own cravings for some joy. You say that you love somebody. But do you really love the person? Is it coming from your space of love, or out of your craving? You will wonder. You will see that it’s all because of the v?san? , the impressions in you.

But with v?san?(impressions) a tail is always attached i.e. pain, problems, misery, and discomfort. When you drop the v?san? from your mind, you become free right away.

Somebody is very beautiful (some boy or girl) and they have been very good and loving to you. So what! They will not be here in another fifty or two hundred years. Where will they be? They are going to be ashes in fifty years or hundred years! Get free from the v?san? . The Being is immortal; the consciousness is immortal; the Gur? is immortal; the rishi, the m?h?rishi is immortal. And, you are also immortal and eternal. Expand your world, and your shrunken v?san? will drop away. The world is so big. Have more experiences. Be open to new experiences.

Longing increases the love in you!
Mullah Nasrudin got married to some other woman whom he had not loved. And people asked him, “Mullah, what is this? I know that you were in love with somebody else. Why didn’t you marry the girl whom you loved?”

He said, “Then how will I spend my evenings? All my longing will be gone. Then she becomes a nag in my head. She keeps nagging me all the time, pain in the neck. I would never make that mistake.”

However beautiful a woman one has married, a partner, however beautiful they are, their eyes go elsewhere, what is not with them, because the longing has disappeared. When longing disappears, love disappears. When you’re husband, wife and you spend all twenty-four hours together, morning till night, you get tired of the person. It’s quite but natural. Love dies very soon, within six months, one year. Then, just out of courtesy, each one says, “Oh, I love you very much.”  There is no garden happening inside. A fountain is not arising. But outside, just not to hurt the other person, says, “Oh, you are beautiful. I love you very much, dear.” One doesn’t want to look into that. One doesn’t want to say it, because there is no longing. It has all disappeared. In ancient Vedic times, there was a tradition. One month during the rainy season, the wives would be sent to their parent’s home.  So in that one month, every husband would write letters. Poetry came out of the husbands and wives. That gap, that gap creates love. Longing creates love. Longing, that pain of separation, increases the love in you. That increases the prayerfulness in you.

— Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
