Real Love by Swami Satchidananda
“Many people say ‘I love you,’ but is that real love? If it is deep love, then it can never change or be taken back. By loving, you give yourself completely. You become one with the beloved and you do everything for the sake of the beloved. But what
we call ‘love’ these days is only a liking, a desire, a temporary, superficial liking. If the weight of the purse is reduced, the weight of the love is also reduced. If the weight of the body increases, the love reduces. See? Because that so-called love is based on money or on a nice body, that’s all. You must love the never changing one in a person. Love the inner Self, the divine in the other. That is the real love.
“God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi.”
