Love and devotion retreat in India, Goa, Candulim, 2018
On the path of awakening we cannot avoid love and devotion.
If you mainly work on the path of wisdom it is a must that you come to love also . To take the last step is through the heart. And the same with the path of love you will come over wisdom.
In these days we will go more into love and devotion, what it really mean.
Many people think – out of habit – that there is something for the mind to find out because our society knows nothing else but thinking and conceptualizing. It is about just being “Still” for a moment and you cannot “try to be still” it will be an activity, you just be still!
Ramana Maharshi say, “Enlightenment happens when the mind sinks into the heart”
We must learn to be in the heart even though manny people are so scared of it! Maybe we are scared of rejections, loose control or the unknowable.
Devotion can only work if you love your self. If you don´t love your self it becomes “admiration”. Admiration is separation and ignorance. It can not take you in to the Truth- Non-duality.
