Spiritual love (Prema), means love without expectations.

04 Apr Posted by in Various texts | Comments Off on Spiritual love (Prema), means love without expectations.

“Ordinarily when one loves anyone there is some form of expectation attached and it is conditional. However spiritual love is unconditional, no matter what the circumstances are. This form of love is divine and only develops after a considerable amount of spiritual practice when one perceives God in everyone. So also, we become happier individuals when our love is not adulterated or diluted by expectations.Love with expectation is based on the similarities with another person’s nature. But there is no guarantee that all aspects of our nature will be similar or complement the other person’s nature. When we begin to discover the difference, that’s when the strife and trouble begins.On the other hand, spiritual love or love without expectation is based on the unchanging Soul.

This is akin to how a string links the beads on a necklace whatever the shape, colour or size – the external nature is not important. The hole in each bead represents our soul which is the same for all of us i.e. the God in one is not in any way different from the God within another.If a person loves only one other person and is indifferent to all others, his love is not love but a symbiotic attachment, or an enlarged egotism.Spiritual love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence.
