Love at First Sight


When one becomes a spiritual seeker, one tends to decipher the abstract from the gross solid.

On the physical plane, human beings recognise one another through physical features- the body, hair colour, skin colour and voice. The spiritual sphere is less complicated though. Everyone is believed to be a soul- a radiating point of Light and Might but living within a body made of flesh and bones.

The human body finds many reasons to admire and become attached to another body. It is said that seeing is believing, maybe that is why people ‘fall in love’ with the image of a quality that they believe in. The current trend is to find a lover having a sexy body, the belief is therefore to have the pride of ‘owning’ a desirable body next to the self and when one sees a body matching that quality, human beings say that they ‘fall in love’. Some even state that they fell in love at first sight!

What is it truly to find love at first sight?

Love is one of the 7 main virtues of the soul- the others are peace, power, purity, happiness, knowledge and bliss.All souls on earth possess these virtues, but by being so engrossed in wordly matters, we have veiled those virtues and transformed them into weaknesses, or simply forgotten them.

Why do we possess such beautiful virtues within us?

This is because we are the children of God- the Supreme Soul. God is the Ocean of Love, Purity, Power, Peace, Happiness, Knowledge and Bliss.

When we recognise that within each human body that we see around us there is a soul residing in the middle of the forehead and which guides the body to see, hear, listen, taste, talk and act, we will then learn to see each soul as a beautiful child of God, irrespective of the country from which the being comes, or what type of action that being has done before. One should have the thought:

“I act as a transparent instrument for God and safeguard God’s trust in me. I have to have sweet interactions with others. I don’t need to make any other comments internally or externally”.

By creating a feeling of deep and pure love within the self, I greet each soul that comes in front of me during the day/night as a child of God and with full love at the first sight. I sincerely believe that this is the truest definition of LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT.

By having such beautiful, pure thoughts, the quality of one’s aura and magnetic field will change and you will find that God will often pull you in the right directions, work through you. You will become an angel for others by being a Ray of Light in their darkest hours.

So, one needs to take out old judgmental ugly thoughts from inside and adopt a new attitude to project love at first sight to all souls one meets in life.

“I now have no problems, I do not want temporary qualities attributed to physical bodies, I let everything go- all standards and norms set by popular culture and society go. I simply have good wishes and good feelings for all souls. I now have love at first sight with all beings.”

Om Shanti.

Thought for the day – Sin Bin

It’s a great idea in sport. Too many fouls and your out of the game for a short period.

The same happens in real life, but we are not aware of it. Sin essentially means forgetfulness, or more specifically, to forget yourself, to forget who you truly are, a pure, peaceful and loving spiritual being who occupies and animates a physical form. It is this forgetfulness that makes us commit what we call sinful action. If you are insulted by another person, and you become angry in response, the sin is the anger which you create not the insult. You are asleep to the truth that you just hurt yourself, and that you are the creator of your anger not the other person. And now you have a recording in your consciousness that contains an image of the other surrounded by the energy of anger. You put it there, not them. Next time you see them, up comes the anger again, and in that moment you are at your least effective, paralysed by self created anger, you are effectively out of the game until you cool down. Interesting isn’t it.

Never get angry, at anything, or anyone, anytime. It’s a sin!

Thought for the day – Rest Easy

Rest does not come with sleeping, it comes with waking.

This is both an insight and an action of enlightenment.

When we are enlightened we realise that real rest is possible only when we become free of illusion and we no longer struggle against life. Illusion is the idea that people should be, and do, what we want them to. The truth is, all is as it should be, despite appearances, or our perceptions of others to the contrary. This means you can be easy on yourself, easy with others and easy with the world around you. Easiness is a virtue, an attractive one at that. It is much more influential than force.

So quit forcing, end the struggling and…relax!

Thought for the day – Keep Faith

To limit your faith to one set of beliefs or an institutional belief system is to commit intellectual suicide.

We shut down the possibility of being enlightened and enriched by others’ experiences, which may be derived from their beliefs. We build a barrier between ourselves and our fellow travellers and then feel threatened, even in small and subtle ways, by someone of a different faith.

The deepest faith is the intuitive conviction that all is as it should be, despite appearances, and that every human being is intrinsically good, despite appearances.

This reminds us to keep our minds open, not take the law into our own hands, and look out for the best in others, regardless of what they say or do. This is faith in life, not faith in a set of learned or inherited beliefs. Have you ever noticed how people don’t go to war over their faith in life?

Thought for the day – Divine Help

Many times people report the feeling of divine help and strength when they come close to breaking point. Actually divine help is always there, but I am usually so busy doing things in my own little way that I only look for it when I face absolute defeat. The tranquil nature of enlightened souls comes from their ability to take God’s help constantly. A state of true surrender will lead to the feeling of victory in everything I do.

Thought for the day – GOODNESS

When I become excessively critical towards others, it means I am going in the wrong direction. We are usually very good at spotting mistakes, but we should develop the quality of also spotting goodness. If I can see what is good in others or in situations and go beyond the curtain of negativity, I feel good about myself. If I constantly think “he is wrong”, I instead create a barrier which blocks me from reaching my own goodness.
