Love is a Bird

Sri Chinmoy's words on human love and divine love

My Life's Soul-Journey

Love is a bird. When we encage it, we call it human love. When we allow love to fly in the all-pervading Consciousness, we call it divine love.

If we give someone something and then expect something in return because we feel that the person is under an obligation to give us something back, this is human love. But if we can do something unconditionally, that is divine love. In divine love we give for the sake of giving and we feel that it is up to the other person whether he gives us something back or not. This is unconditional love; this is divine love.

 

 

Every time you love unconditionally,
A winged angel flies down
And tells you,
"Sit down on my wing quickly!
The Lord Supreme is waiting for you."
