Love is that which risks everything, gives anything and asks for nothing.
~ HDH Bhagawan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam (fondly known as Swamiji)
What we know as ordinary love is just the hormonal gush which works on the emotional push and pull of greed, fear, anger and jealousy. This kind of love driven by hormones and the mind creates only mental hell. Unfortunately, for most of us, we only experience this kind of conditional love.

I had an ’AHA’ moment when I came across a very old discourse delivered by my Guru in 2013 on the topic of grace!
In that discourse, Bhagawan Sri Nithyananda Paramashiva (fondly known as Swamiji) revealed that there are four representatives of God in Vedic tradition:- 1) Nature; 2) the “Avyaktha” – Unmanifested Nature which we label as “Unknown”; 3) Individual Soul and finally 4) Guru. These are the four representatives of God we encounter in the life.
First of all, Nature is the first representative of God we face. But, if you look what human beings have done to the Nature, we are destroying the Nature at an alarming rate. Many scientists and environmentalists are seeing a rapid destruction of our natural habitat and we may not survive in the next 20 years.

Last evening, my 15- years-old son came to share with me about an incident which disturbed his inner space as he felt certain heaviness in his heart. This incident happened yesterday afternoon, he went for a Geography team project discussion with a couple of boys from his school. After the project meeting, the three boys decided to visit the games arcade in the shopping mall for some entertainment.
The moment one of his friends, namely Yee tried to show off his skills by taking out a special professional member card to start the game machine, my son immediately recognized it was his card which he had lost 4 months ago. Through his awakened third eye, he saw that his friend stole his card and he had to confront him. Yee immediately lied by saying it was his card as he had earned it using his playing skills. My son, with ferociousness, took the card away from him and Yee tried to snatch it away. In the struggle, my son cornered him to speak the truth! Finally, he admitted that the card belonged to my son but then came the second lie, he said that my son left it in the machine the last time they played together. My son was clear that this didn’t happen and again pushed him to speak the truth. Finally, out came the truth – Yee stole the card from my son’s wallet as they used to sit next to each other in the class. Seeing my son’s ferociousness, finally Yee apologised to my son for stealing his card. My son, after having satisfied with the truth, decided to give that card to his friend and then left him.
