When you say yes to love, your life changes. Love Meditation uses gentle exercises, singing, dancing and hugging to take you on a journey that will melt your soul and open your heart.
Chandrika talks about the Love Meditation
The loving feeling is just a good vibration in your heart.It doesn’t have much to do with the other; you don’t have to be with each other.You enjoy the love; you enjoy the vibration in your heart.
Veeresh often says you just have THE NEED TO LOVE. Whether the other person receives it and gives it back is not the point. If he/she doesn’t return your feelings and says “I don’t love you back” it is their issue; they are missing out on the loving feelings. So you just look further and find somebody who resonates with your love.
Often we get stuck with the focus on the outside. We put conditions on how the other person has to look, the shape of their bodies, how rich they are, how intelligent they have to be, and this and that. We lay so many criteria on how the other should be before we give ourselves the permission to love and open up. If you look at women’s magazines nowadays, they are full of information about how the right love can be found.
It’s a big business, but the FACT is that everybody has this big love inside their hearts, and the question is put more correctly “Are you READY to feel it?” Veeresh prefers instead of Enlightenment the word Enlovement; falling in love gives you a glimpse of that state and feeling of enlightenment.
Often we are so outside-oriented and lost in our stories, instead of going back inside yourself where you feel. We need to look inside to prepare the ground to feel and to resonate love. We are lucky that it is inside of us and not dependant on the outside, because this is a endless road. Once you think you found the right person, he starts talking and you find out that he is not the person you imagined; he does not live up to your high expectations. Mostly we think we can only be happy if the outside changes, but it doesn’t work like that. If your heart is closed how can you feel? It is not possible. You need to open your heart first and be ready to feel, to be soft, to be vulnerable, and maybe even ready to get hurt. We are often so scared to get hurt that we protect ourselves even before it happens. Then all the energy goes into protection, the heart closes, you start to fantasize about the perfect match for you, and that is coming from the mind. When a person approaches you, you are not ready to feel him/her, your heart is closed and you miss to meet.
Veeresh says: “Emotional pain is the result of not being loved. The more you are not loved, the more pain you feel. The pain you have equals the amount of love that you need. If you have a lot of pain, you need a lot of love. So you have to keep going for love. Don’t stop going for love.”
The opposite of love is ICE-OLATION. Isolation means that when you are controlling your feelings with your mind, you freeze your heart, and as a consequence it gets stiff and rigid. Then the mind takes over and life becomes dry and boring, because you try to analysis and understand everything, in order to feel safe. But the world is constantly changing. This does not fit with your controlling mind and that freaks you out. When you come from your heart, you allow the unexpected, you give space, you live adventurously and life becomes colorful. Your heart is pulsing, you feel alive. It allows imperfection.
Only when you start to open your heart can you feel compassion; compassion is a function of love. When you love you feel the other, embrace them, and let them be who they are. COMPASSION is a form of respect for the other.
Most people are AFRAID of love, scared of opening. There are many different ways of avoiding love. One is isolation, another is ridiculing; making it look silly. It’s a way of pushing away the feeling. There are many different forms of protection.
Feeling and being present is the power of love. It is your choice to open your heart and love. The Love meditation is a great space to open yourself and experience the love energy available to us all.
