In order to live love it is important to understand what it is, and even more to be able to distinguish it from its counterfeits. We live to give and receive love. Every time we pollute this feeling, we cheat others, we cheat ourselves; every time we betray, we betray ourselves; every time we lie, we are lying to ourselves. An individual may possess the entire world, but if he doesn't have good relationships, he remains miserable.
The Masters of Bhakti urge us to rediscover the meaning of living in our daily actions and warn us against everything that hinders our quest, even against the so-called “knowledge”, when it is only as an end in itself and not functional to our evolution; we must not seek that kind of knowledge making us supercilious, rather the knowledge that liberates and helps us detach ourselves from conditionings, attachments and sufferings. The true knowledge helps us distinguish between eros and love,and between Love and love, because even love can be realized on different levels. Humanitarian love exists and yes, it is virtuous, but it is like a firefly in relation to the sun, representing the love for God; a feeling that becomes supreme and ineffable sweetness, when God begins to play with His devoted lover.
