Dharma or love

The heart when is not living and making its life a life of love, feels out of place; and all the discomfort of life comes from this... Shall we then fulfill duties, which our inperfect mind creates as a God will without no touch of love or spread the love around as our main duty with the God blessing ? Can we build our happiness or somebody's sorrow ?

without love it is not dharma but mind disguised as dharma

I think that spirituality without love, without spirit, spirituality that does not originating from the heart is just a trick of the mind to let us believe as if we are in a spiritual quest so that we keep quiet and not make trouble. If our heart is not vibrating, if we don't feel increasing levels of compassion, if we don't feel more still and meditative, if we are not witnessing strengthening connection with something beyond than this is a signal that maybe we are fooled and we make some change... The heart must be vibrating, love must expand to every cell... otherwise it is a dry dharma, a secular dharma, a mechanical dharma.

not only the heart

It is especially a case of the heart, of allowing ourselves to lose control, to extend from our comfort selfishness. But it is true for every aspect of us manifested in our chakras. When any of our elements are not balanced than there will be discomfort - spiritual as well as mental.

excellent topic yudhistra is example!

if ur a good student u will love the subject of study and like king david u will follow commandments with love....

truth: a good student loves his subject.

so if u love dharma u will not feel the burden of duty but the god remains with u when ur in exile like pancha pandavas.

but one must learn from king david and his son king solomon how they won well.....

david was a musician and shepherd he became king for he followed love music dharma prayer psalms in proper order

and more so love comes from mother duty comes from a father eventough exception exist.....

let the god like rama madam guide us in love and labour of perfect dharma....

with love
