What is Divine Love? | Mystics understanding of Love | part1

In the spirit of the Sufi Poetry Carnival, the theme being Divine Love here is a post that focuses on the theme, borrowing understandings of mystics and sufis on Love.

:: Sufi Master of Golden Sufi in California, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee writes in his book Love is a Fire

Love is the primal music of life, the song of creation, the fabric of being human. The song of love is in every heart. Each of us longs to be loved, loved by a mother, a lover, a friend, a husband or wife. We long to be touched, to be held, to be embraced, to be understood, to be needed. We need to know that we are loved and we need to love in return.

For centuries mystics have been walking secret paths to love, paths that lead to the shores of love’s infinite ocean. Some of these travelers became known as Sufis, wayfarers on the path of love. Sufis are lovers of God, going Home to their heart’s Beloved. Because Sufis are lovers of God, their relationship with God is that of lover and Beloved.

Sufis all sing the one song, that of lover and Beloved. The Beloved looks into the heart of the lover and ignites it with the spark of remembrance, with the call for the journey. This spark becomes a fire that burns us, that empties us of everything except love. Through the fire of love we come to know the essence of love, the greatest secret hidden within every cell of creation. Finding what we really are, we become lost in the mystical truth of humanity, that there is nothing other than God. > via seeker after truth blog > also more extract here.

:: Indian Philosopher and Guru Sri Chinmoy writes "Divine love is the expansion of our consciousness. The very nature of divine love is to expand, expand, expand and become one with all that it touches. The more we expand ourselves, the sooner we feel the Universal Consciousness as our very own. And when we feel the Universal Consciousness as our very own, at that time we become the Universal Self. " - Excerpt from: The Inner Hunger by Sri Chinmoy
