A life without love is a waste. “Should I look for spiritual love, or material, or physical love?”, don’t ask yourself this question. Discrimination leads to discrimination. Love doesn’t need any name, category or definition. Love is a world itself. Either you are in, at the center…either you are out, yearning.

Swami Rama Tirtha explains that only our worldly attachments keep us from finding the truth within: ” We do not have to travel far to reach the truth. It is in us already, only the path is blocked by our attachment to the world. Our greed, lust, power, anger, egoism. The moment we cease to be slaves of the flesh and of the mind, the path of the truth will be revealed to us.”
Ram Tirtha elucidates:
“The path to truth or the path of the truth is contradiction in terms. Truth is not distant. How can there be a path to it then? Truth is with you already, it is yourself already. You are in it already, you are truth. You have simply to break-through the cocoons of desires which imprison you; you have simply to undo what you have already done. You have not to do anything in the positive sense of the world in order to realize God. Simply undo what you have done in the way of making your prison house, and there you are, God already, Truth personified already. But this undoing of what has been done is to some a very hard work.
Swami Rama Tirtha suggests that The truth is that all your attachments, all your love and hatred , all your desires for shackles and chains- these bind you. These do not allow you to see God.. These are your prison house. Your desire bound you. You cannot serve God and mammon at the same time.
You cannot be the slave of the flesh and master of the universe at the same time.. To realize the Truth is to become master of the universe and to entertain desire is to acknowledge bondage., thraldom and slavery.
Everybody desires to become Christ; everybody want to realize Truth to become a prophet, but very few, if any, are ready to pay the price.
