Jesus - Embodiment of Love 耶穌——愛的體現


Love is the most sought-after but least expressed mystery of life. We try to express love in so many ways, still it remains a mystery. And it rarely happens that love is expressed in its fullness, in its totality.

Jesus and love are synonymous. If you say love, you need not say Jesus and if you say Jesus, it means love. Jesus once said, “If you call God in my name, whatever you ask shall be given. For God is love.” You find such a complete expression of love in Jesus. Whatever little glimpses you may get here and there indicates that fullness, that ultimate expression of the inexpressible that life is striving to express all the time.


Love makes you weak, but brings you the kingdom of heaven. However strong you are, you are the weakest when you are in love. Yet love is the strongest force on this universe. Since love makes you weak, it also is scary. Among thousands, just a few followed Jesus. Many heard, but just a few came. Even after performing many miracles, only handful of people could recognise him.


Jesus said, “I have come to put man against man, father against son, daughter against mother.” Very few people have really understood what it means. Whom you think is your friend is really not a friend because he or she makes your faith on the matter strong, and spirit weak. “I have come to put one against each other, I have come to put fire, not make peace.” Jesus said this because he knew the depth of slumber. When you talk something nice, peaceful, everybody will go to sleep and when there is something sensational, people wake up and listen. This is how the human mind operates. And Jesus made all efforts for one to cross the mind and get into the soul, the spirit, the source of life, the Self. You break through the limited identities and recognise the Divinity within you. You are much more than just a human; you are part of the Divine. And you inherit the kingdom. And that kingdom is right here, right within you.


Love has no name, nor form. Love is abstract, yet it is very concrete. It has no name or form but manifests in all names and in all forms. This is the mystery of creation. You can see love everywhere in this creation if only you have an eye to see it. Just see a bird, and a small one in the nest. The bird comes and how it feeds its young one. See how the young one waits for the mother bird to come. There is love in it. There is love among fish. There is love in the sky. There is love underneath the water. There is love on the ground. And there is love in the outer space.


Every form is full of love and every name represents love. And that is how Jesus is One with the Father. Father is One with his creation. In India, the creation and creator are compared to the dance and the dancer. You cannot have a dance without a dancer. Dancer is in every move of the dance. The creator is in every spec of the creation. That is what is omnipresent, omnipotent. If God is omnipresent, he is present everywhere, isn’t it? The creator, if he is different from the creation, then he is not present in his creation. Then he is not omnipresent. The whole definition of God is gone.


Love is present everywhere, but somewhere it finds total expression. And the knowledge of the Self leads you towards that total expression of love, of blossoming of love. It lifts your eyes from all tiny little things. One Divine is providing for everybody. Neither the python goes to work nor the birds toil. Everybody is taken care of. Everything is taken care of.


Jesus said, “Love each other as much as I love you.” What more do you need to see that embodiment of love?


耶穌——愛的體現

愛在生命裡是很搶手但也是很
神秘和難以表達的。我們試著以很多的方式來.、表達愛,但是它還是保持神秘。而最難的就是以完整和圓滿的方式去表達愛。

耶穌和愛是同義詞。如果你說愛,那你就不需要說耶穌;而當你說耶穌,那就是愛。耶穌曾說過『如果你以我們名譽呼叫神,那你所要求的都會被實現。因為神就是愛。』從耶穌那我們可以找到對愛完整的表達。從不同方面我們可以隱約見到圓滿,它就是我們生命中一直要表達卻又說不出的那種情感。


愛讓你脆弱,但是它也帶給你天堂。無論你是多麼的堅強,但在愛裡你是脆弱的。但是愛也是宇宙間最強的力量。愛讓你脆弱,它也是可怕的。幾千個人裡,跟隨耶穌的就只有幾個。很多人都聽說了,當來的卻只有幾個。就算祂顯示了很多奇蹟,但是只有少數的人認得祂。

耶穌說『我來到這裡乃是叫人紛爭;人與人相爭;
父親和兒子相爭;女兒和母親相爭。』很多人都不明白這一點。你認為是朋友的人也未必是朋友,因為他或她會讓你對某件事情的信仰變強,但是靈性卻脆弱。『我來乃是要讓大家彼此相對,我是來放火,而不是讓這裡太平的。』耶穌這麼說是因為他知道那些沉睡者的程度。當你在說些好聽的,和平的話的時候,大家都會睡著了。但是當你說些轟動的事情的時候,大家都會醒來聽。這就是人類的心智的運作方式。而耶穌盡一切所能讓人們可以超越心智而進入靈魂,精神,生命的泉源,和本我。你突破那些身份的極限,去認識你內在的神性。你不只是單單是個人類而已,你是神性的一部分。你繼承了那個王國。而那個王國就在這裡,就在你的內在裡。

愛是沒有名字,沒有形式的。愛是抽象,但也是具體的。它沒有任何的名字和形式,但是在任何的名字和形式裡它都可以顯現。這就是創造界的神秘。只要你打開眼睛去看,你就可以看到這世間一切的創造裡的愛。去看看那鳥兒,和它巢裡待哺的小鳥兒。去看那鳥兒是如何餵它的孩子。而那些小鳥兒又是如何等待它們的母親歸來。這裡面有著愛。魚群裡也是有愛的存在。天空裡也是有愛的存在。水裡面也有。在陸地上也是。在外太空也是有愛。

每一個形式都充滿愛,而每一個名詞都代表著愛。這也是耶穌和天父是合一的意思。天父和祂所創造的一切都是合一的。在印度,創造物和創造者被比喻成舞蹈和舞蹈者。一支舞蹈不能沒有舞蹈者。而在每一個舞步裡
都有舞蹈者的存在創造者是在創造物的每一個規範裡。那是無所不在,無所不能的。如果神是無所不在,那祂就會在所有地方呈現,對嗎?如果創造者和創造物是分開的,那祂就沒有在祂的創造物裡呈現。這就不是無所不在了。那麼神的定義就失去了。


愛在任何地方都能呈現出來,但是在有些地方它是被完整的表現出來。本我的知識會帶領你邁向對愛完整的表現,對愛的綻放。讓你把你的視線從那些微不足道的事情裡提升。一個神性可以提供給每一個人。無論是在工作的大蟒蛇或是辛勞的小鳥 (比喻),一切都是被照料的。就像耶穌所說的『要像我愛你般的去愛別人』這就是你所能看到的愛的體現。
