Spiritual Love

If we move from selfishness to self-givingness in our relationship with another, We not only experience a degree of Oneness with that person, but we also experience a degree of spiritual Love.

Spiritual Love is certainly more than the physical attraction or attachment we have for another person. It is also more than the vital feelings and emotions we have towards others. It is instead something truer, deeper, and longer lasting. Spiritual Love occurs when the lover, partner, parent, friend, associate, etc. seeks to give of himself without expectation or reward, seeking only the fulfilment of the other person. Ultimately, the highest expression of spiritual Love occurs when we surrender to, and offer our deepest devotion to the Divine, thereby fulfilling Its intention in life.

In addition to spiritual Oneness and Love, we also experience the spirit as pure joy and Delight of being. One way we can feel that Delight is by being self-giving to another person, as well as feeling the joy of another person's progress and happiness. We can also feel such Delight whenever we experience something new in the world, such as when we discover a new possibility, or come upon a new idea, or when we have achieved a new level of growth in our lives.

Quite often I have witnessed my soul dancing with utter joy and delight . It is because of the love i have experienced for others and the unknown .

  4. u know in practicality such a love is impossible... because at some point of time everybody gets materialistic and wants that the love should be returned to him/her in the same magnitude...
    sad but true..:(
    btw nice post and love is defined quite well...

  9. Awesome writing. Last sentence rocks. I do not know if spiritual love exists or not but for that matter I did not know a town called 'Cary' existed where I live now. So I believe what you say.

  10. Nice explanation of unconditional love. However it is difficult to understand this love at the level of consciousness we are. It needs continuous practice. But we get rid of this love by saying it is impossible. Thanks for writing such post.
