    To me extinguishing the thinking mind equals Listening to your heart. Deeply listening. Letting go of the chatter, the noise in one's head that sometimes blocks the LOVE in the Heart. I have felt this love more than I can express. It washes over and it is like a state of bliss. It permeates EVERY part of you. It extends outward and inward at the same time. I believe we can develop this more by going into our hearts more and not being in our heads. Our heart feels this naturally, but sometimes our heads talk us out of it. Wishing all of you to feel this kind of LOVE, it is Beautiful. and Possible. HUG from my heart to yours.

    Does it call for making any conscious effort to feel 'love'? If the answer is 'yes', it could only make all wonder endlessly about what is 'love'. 'Spontaneity' is the only process of carrying the feeling of or being in 'love'. How does anything become spontaneous?? Perhaps it is inexplicable! Perhaps, the only thing that can be said is that one needs to be in a 'trance' and then go beyond, all effortlessly to actually sink into 'love' or to have love diffuse in us.

     What i think upon it , I got a nice words : There is a Love which begins in the head, goes to the heart and grows slowly; It asks less than it gives ; lasting till death ; there is another love which Blots out Wisdom , it is sweet with the sweetness of love and bitter with the bitterness of death ; lasting for an hour; but it is the worth having lived whole life for that hour.
