Symbols of the world's religions



Meher Baba

The highest human love is not the highest absolute love. Divine Love is the highest aspect of all-pervading love. One who gets this love gets God. Divine Love is beyond reason and intellect. Nobody can create this highest aspect of love in himself. Divine Love is given and not created. It is grace from the God-Man.

It is the real side of religion and the only element which reveals or unfolds the emotionality of the spiritual path. The highest love is the one which is perfectly selfless and disinterested, devoid of all desires and expectations. It is fire — an infinite fire in itself and those who burn in it get purified.

Philosophies and intellectual gymnastics make one intellectually certain about the existence of God; but it is only the love for God, Divine Love, that enables one to find Him, to feel Him and to become one with Him.
