Swami Dhyan Giten:
Jesus Christ – The Path of Love
From the book that Giten is currently writing “Jesus Christ: The Way, The Truth and The Life”, which is a compilation of lectures during satsang with Giten on Jesus Christ
The Path of Love, the path of Bhakti Yoga, is the path of Jesus Christ.
Love is not a technique.
Love knows no technique, so the path of love has no method or technique.
If you bring technique to the path of love, you will destroy love.
The whole existence is love, and the birds need no technique to love, trees need no technique to love the mountains need no technique to love.
Love only needs that you drop the ego, and drop into your heart. It is just like a rose flower opening. You need not open it, it has the capacity to open already. The capacity is intrinsic, and of it’s own accord the rose flower will open – and in the same way the heart opens.
The heart needs no technique, the heart needs no training.
Jesus says: “God is love”. If you can love, it will happen by itself.
Jesus path is the way of love, of prayer. It is a deep love for the whole existence.
Jesus was a man of love, of immense compassion. He loved this earth, the people, the threes, because that is the way to love God.
God is life. Jesus is very life-affirmative. He says total yes to life.
When you look into the eyes of each being that you meet, you meet God.
Everybody is an incarnation of God – the threes, the flowers, the rocks, the animals, the people and the mountains.
Love the people, love the threes, love the animals – and through the love you meet God.
All are brothers here, because God is one.
The threes, the flowers, the birds and the rocks are all your brothers, because they all come from the one source.
if you are not reconciled with the world, you cannot pray to God. Prayer is only possible when you are in harmony with existence.
The whole existence is your brother. The first step for prayer is to be reconciled with your brother. And your brother means all beings.
Jesus is a celebration of being, a celebration of life.
If you deny life, you deny God.
If you say no to life, you say no to God, because God is life.
To understand Jesus, you have to understand that life is God.
If you say yes to life, you will feel a prayer arising in your heart, a yes arising in your being.
The ego is a no to life, the ego is a separation from life. The inner being is a yes to life. The inner being is a deep yes and acceptance of life.
Saying yes bridges you with the whole. It makes you a part of the whole.
Saying yes will make you more and more spiritual.
Jesus whole message is yes. The word “amen” means yes.
You will never meet God, you will meet human beings, animals, stones and threes.
You can love God through other human beings, through threes, through stones and through animals.
And when you have learnt to love God through all his forms – then only love changes into prayer.
