Devotion with any expression…

Standard

A devotee may have any of the following expressions of devotion
with God – a servant, friend, a child or lover. With either
expression, the devotee is not seperate from God; because in true
love, God and his devotee are One and from being One, they become
two. And more so, on being two also, they ever remain one. Therefore
between the lover and the beloved, sometimes the Master becomes the
Servant, sometimes the Servant becomes the Master.

It is said that “Sevak swami sakhaa siya pi ke” – (Manasa. Bala.
15:2) Sometimes God becomes the object of adoration of the devotee,
and other times the devotee becomes the object of adoration of God –
“Ishtosi mein drdhmiti.” (Gita 18:64). Sometimes Shri Krishna
becomes Radha, and other times Radha becomes Shri Krishna.

In Knowledge there is Eternal peace, but in true Love there is
everlasting, every moment ever increasing Love. This does not mean
that there is something lacking or incomplete in this love. It does
not mean that to arrive at completeness, the love is increasing. In
reality, the love does not decrease or increase. Just like in the
depths of the ocean there is stillness, but on the surface there are
waves, and with the gravitational pull of the moon, the waves seem
to rise and fall, with high level of activity. But inspite of the
rising waves, the water in the ocean does not decrease or increase,
it remains the same. Similarly in this necter filled, everlasting
love there are waves, but the love never increases or diminishes.
When love quietens down, the lover and the beloved become one and
inseparable. And when there is longing and turmoil within then lover
and beloved are two, inspite of being one, which is longing in
separation (viraha). While on being two, they remain one is Unity.

The every moment, ever increasing love (divine nectar), is
called “Raas”. Imagine one who is so thirsty, that his thirst is
never quenched and at the same time the water for quenching the
thirst never decreases. Rather, the stomach is never full, and in
every sip there is always new nectar. It is similar with the Lord
and His devotees. The name of this type of love is called “Raaslila”.
