20121230 – ‘Unless you lose yourself, you cannot find yourself?’ – Part 2 (final)

 

If you think of Baba all the time, you cannot think of yourself. If you don’t think of me, you will remain unmoved. Only when Rano thinks of Nonny does she feel bad. When she doesn’t think of her mother, there is no feeling.

Yet another meditation school has opened in Poona, called the Mother’s Lodge. These meditation classes do not impart love. Meditation creates peace, not love. Thinking brings about love when done continually and deeply. In meditation, you try to stop thinking. The stoppage gives peace. But to love, you must think of the Beloved! If your mind becomes still, your Beloved does not exist anymore. Then how can there be love where there is no Beloved?

This is a very important point, this differentiation. When you meditate, you try to forget everything, even yourself. In loving, you forget everything and self, but you remember the Beloved! In real and perfect meditation, which is rare, you forget your body, yourself and everything else. In loving you also forget self, body and everything, but you remember the Beloved! In meditation, the Beloved does not exist. That is why it is said that in meditation, the most you can get is samadhi – forgetting everything and deriving peace. But never God-Realization! It is only attained by love.
