"Whoever is immersed into the true nature of love -
even for a single moment -
knows that he has only lived in that moment."
REMOVING the SELF-SABOTAGING
CAUSES of FULFILLING RELATIONSHIPS
"Only when we open ourselves to each other very seriously
and accept each other, we will approach the deeper sense of unity. "
-Richard Von Weizsäcker-
"If we do not obey the law of satsang - if you do not care,
whether our relationships are conducive or not conducive to our dharma
(in regard to genetics, family, partner, friends, work, workplace, society,
religion, culture, dress, language, city, country, time zone, continent, planet)-
inappropriate relationship will cause stagnation
in your material and spiritual life.“ "
Mastering the Venus-Energy of the feminine principle
"A woman, however weak she is, by the feeling
she inspires, she is stronger than the strongest man "
Mastering the Mars-Energy of the masculine principle
"You cannot always be a hero,
but you can always be a man. "
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The EVOLUTION of
ETERNAL (unconditional) LOVE
"Only when excitation, attachment and possessive mentality
disappear through the knowledge of the self,
the heart can mature in love and compassion."
"Love is the desire to give, not to receive."
LOVE of FREEDOM
"I prefer dangerous freedom rather than peaceful slavery."
LOVE of TRUTH
"The spiritually ambitious man can never be without problems and conflicts.
Man can only find the truth when he successfully has liberated himself
from his anthropocentric `I` (socialized and spiritual conditioned personality).”
"If there is a duty to kill the people of other nations
and if it is patriotism which endangers the lives of the residents,
then to hell with duty and patriotism. "
PRODUCING the NECTAR of SELF- LOVE
Self-Love, Self-Esteem, Self-Respect, Self-Worth
"We have to fear those, who hate themselves.
We will be the victims of their self-hatred and vengeance.
So let's see, how we can seduce him to love himself!”
"In the Christian world there is no love,
first they have hanged the idealized suffering on the cross
and then they started to worship it.
Suffering and true love cannot exist together"
"Marriages do not take place in the interest of the individuals.
Even though man and woman are convinced to promote their own happiness,
their real purpose is foreign to themselves.
They live only in the bringing forth a possible new individual. "
"As soon as greed interferes,
a love relationship cannot sustain itself "
"It´s not the lack of love,
but the lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.”
BIOLOGY & GENETICS versus ROMANTIC LOVE
"In love we must harmonize two ingredients that are not really compatible.
Trust and security on the one hand, excitement on the other side.
With the people with whom we feel most secure, we do not want to have sex.
And those that excite us most are not suitable as a father.
We feel more comfortable with the nice guy with low testosterone level,
even though he may not fulfill the optimum genetic criteria as a producer.
The problem is that with the idea of romantic love
we are looking for a partner that combines both. That's the dilemma. "
-Richard David Precht-
"Duty without Love creates annoyance.
Truth without Love creates addiction to criticism.
Education without Love creates contradiction.
Cleverness without Love turns cagey.
Responsibility without Love turns inconsiderate.
Justice without Love creates hardness.
Politeness without Love creates hypocrisy.
Order without Love creates pettiness.
Knowledge without Love turns obstinate.
Power without Love turns violent.
Honor without Love creates pride.
Possession without Love turns avaricious.
Believe without Love turns fanatic.”
DESECRATION and ABUSE of LOVE
"As long as men massacre animals
humans will continue to kill each other.
No one can reap joy and love when he has sown death and pain. "
"All creatures of earth have the same feelings.
All creatures strive for happiness.
All creatures of earth love, suffer and die as we do.
Since they are from the same Almighty Creator – they are our brothers.
God wants us to protect and nourish animals when they need help.
Every being in distress has the same rights for security and protection. "
"All true and pure love is compassion,
and any love that is not compassion, is selfishness. "
LOVE of the SOUL
"Through the development of the soul
divine qualities of understanding,
patience, thoughtfulness and love will be cultivated. "
RELIGIOUS FAITH versus AUTHENTIC LOVE
"For those who really love
there are no Muslims, Christians or Jews."
LOVE of NATURE
"How much deception I experienced
in life and in love,
You are to me always, Nature,
You stayed true to me."
"Where there is love and wisdom, there is neither fear nor uncertainty;
where there is patience and humility, there is no anger nor excitement;
where there is self-sufficiency and joy, there is no greed nor avarice;
where there is peace and relaxation, there is no distraction nor instability."
EVOLUTION of LOVE
"From Diotima Sokrates learned about Eros and love
Our concepts of love transform as we age:
We first are attracted to the physical beauty of youth
Then we progress to see the beauty in all bodies
Next, we are able to look beyond the physical and see the beauty of the soul
Then we see the beauty of laws
Finally, we become aware of the beauty of ideas”
The LOVE PRINCIPLE in ACTION
"As long as the mind is affected by the impressions (charges) of the world
the memories of the mind will determine the course of the future.
As long as one is caught between what happened and what may happen in future,
one is caught in the karmic determination of one´s own destiny.
To experience freedom, one must return
to one’s own true nature and start acting from this center of love."
-Shri Nirsagadatta Maharaj-
"When Heaven is to save a person,
Heaven will protect him through the fire of love.”
-Laotse, Tao Te Ching-
