We shed tears of love for God, but is God enjoying them? That does not matter, as long as we open our hearts and love our exclusive Friend. Even if there is no God, with belief, you get a chance to express unconditional love. You are seeking nothing in return, even though your love and tears are going nowhere. That alone gives peace and joy. If God benefits, then that is a bonus. You benefit instantly. Loving God is basically loving your true self—the temporary you falling in love with the permanent you. In this love, a merger takes place. The fake you can take a break. Enjoy this rest and relaxation from all the fake things you do to acquire fake things. Now, if God is real, then you get to experience His love, which is far better than the love you are capable of giving. — Satish Daryanani
