Experiencing Divine Love
Sat discusses divine love, and how no effort is needed to experience it - it is just a free stream of grace.
Question: What tools or practices help you to fill your vision with love?
Bahar: Keeping love in priority and focus, like a constant IV of love.
Aida: Gratitude is not officially a tool but I really feel like it works the same as a tool. Gratitude for being here, gratitude for having a guide, gratitude for all that the guide has provided.
Radha: Being able to recognize when I’m going with the thoughts, to recognize how unpeaceful it feels, and now knowing that there is a choice.
Mandana: I’ve noticed if I go with love I don’t even have to worry about my mind. It’s an amazing experience and is all new to me.
Sat: Just today I was thinking, I was contemplating on love and I was thinking there are millions and trillions of people [in the world], but to experience divine love and to be able to see that it fills you to the rim, it is quite rare! Because we are amongst people who feel the same way, we don’t think it’s rare, but it’s really, really rare! You can be an extremely loving person, but there is still effort in it. When there is divine love, there is no effort, to love is not effort, to receive is not effort, it is just a free [flowing] stream of what I call grace, but really you can call it love.
I was thinking all of us who are sitting here, there (on Zoom or Livestream), we had the chance to experience this rare feeling of love that springs from our Being. It is not something we can fabricate or say it is permanent, or at times [it] isn’t. For Me, this divine love has swept away a lot of obstacles. We think that the Beloved is lucky to have it, not at all! It is the lover that is fortunate to experience this, because after all, the lover and Beloved are one. So, when you experience That, you are experiencing yourself; you are experiencing your heart.
I was thinking about how the Guru is rare to come across in this lifetime. I was thinking, “How can I describe this meeting?” I think the best way to describe it is the Asatoma prayer. We can finish our meeting with it. Really, before I met Baba I was blind, but I was also looking for a cure for My vision. It wasn’t as though I said, “I am doomed and I am going to be blind for the rest of my life.” I traveled to India for healing and for the cause of that.
Gratitude- you can’t help but have gratitude! [Today] I experienced what you all experienced. I didn’t know how to express My gratitude. I said, “Now I get it … it’s hard, what do you say?” I think the best way to do it is to just dance in our heart.
After a few games Sat led us in the Asatoma prayer by saying:
“Let’s put our hand on our heart and for a moment imagine our Guru in our heart, sitting in the lotus of our heart.”
