Love is sweet, devotion is sweeter, surrender is sweetest.

Love is sweet. I have felt this truth in my Mother’s spontaneous love for me.

Devotion is sweeter. I have discovered this truth in my Mother’s pure devotion towards the perfection of my life.

Surrender is sweetest. I have realised this truth in my Mother’s constant surrender towards the fulfilment of my joy.

Again, love is mighty, devotion is mightier, surrender is mightiest.

Love is mighty. This truth I feel when I look at my Father’s Face.

Devotion is mightier. This truth I discover when I sit at my Father’s Feet.

Surrender is mightiest. This truth I realise when I live in the breath of my Father’s Will.

Devotion is the intensity in love and surrender is the fulfilment of love. Why do we love? We love because at every moment we are pinched with hunger to realise the highest, to feel the inmost, to be consciously one with the universal Truth, Light, Peace and Bliss and to be completely fulfilled.
