Love is not a result, it is the very ground of being.
~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj ~


The following was a comment i posted on a friend's
Facebook status.

Dear Friend,
I may be completely wrong, please dont take anything i say too seriously.


Also i am finding it extremely difficult to put it in words, the fact that you are reading this itself means ... what I wanted to convey has been distorted.

I think Nisarga was referring to 'love' in its most basic essence. And the not the kind that is associated with feeling, infatuation, or in the 'possessive' sense. ...

I think Nisarga was referring to the very essence that exists in us when we strip away any kind of momentum within us, any kind of expectation from something . For example, when we wake up in the morning by ourselves, for the first couple of minutes, do we actually have a sense of feeling for something, we have neither hatred nor 'love' in the contemporary sense. But we can feel a acceptance within ourselves... A sense that we are OK with whats around us, not trying to change anything, and that is the very acceptance of our existence, and i think that is Love.

When we have no expectation from something, we totally accept it, and in that natural state we are in 'Love'(the was Nisarga puts it), that is the state of 'being'.

P.S: Look at the Picture above , Do you feel like changing anything in that scene?
