Love me or hate me but don't ignore me

"Love me if you will; hate me if you must;
but for God's sake, don't ignore me."
I wish to address this saying to him.
There are three significant ideas here:
to be loved, to be hated and to be ignored.
I wish to discuss these from the heart point of view.

"Love me if you will."
Where mylove is concerned,
sometimes we expect love because of what we have done and sometimes we receive love without making any actual effort to be loved.
And, of course, sometimes we don't get the love that we feel we rightly deserve.
im the human being has to make a conscious effort to try to love others.
An ordinary person sometimes feels that he is wanting in the capacity to love others and he tries to cultivate this divine quality in himself.
But if a person is already endowed with a few divine qualities,
then the love which is most essential in our human world and in our divine world, he will have in boundless measure.

my Dream and my Reality go together.
i do not separate my Dream from my Reality.
If, in my Dream, love looms large,
then we can rest assured that in my Reality also love looms large.
Love itself and its power of expression can never be separated in us.
Divine love and the expression of this love will be one and simultaneous.
Love is the quality and the expression of love is the capacity.
So the quality and the capacity can both be achieved if one soulfully aspires for a better and more fulfilling life.

"Hate me if you must."
God can never, never hate us.
A man who has even a little wisdom cannot hate his fellow beings.
Because he knows the reasons that one hates another.
One reason is that an individual feels inferior. Another reason is that an individual is afraid of someone.
A third reason is that a person feels that his oneness with the other person is not complete;
his real identification with the other person is lacking and there is a feeling of division.
That is why he starts hating.

But how is it that sometimes one hates oneself?
It is quite possible.
Sometimes you get angry with yourself.
You have done something wrong or you wanted to do something wrong;
that is why you hate yourself.
You want to do something,
achieve something,
but unfortunately you are not able to accomplish this.
That is why you hate yourself.
What do we actually observe in this hatred?
We observe that our soul is separated from the physical mind and physical consciousness.

When we are living in the soul,
we realise that we are not the doer.
We are only an instrument.
Also, when we live in the soul, we do not care for success. We care only for progress. It is our job to listen to the dictates of the Inner Pilot.
Then it is up to Him whether
He gives us the experience of success or failure.
So if we live in the soul,
we can never hate ourselves.
Only we love the divine in us,
the Supreme in us, who is also in the world.

If we care most for the soul,
then when the soul comes to the fore,
it acts like a pilot.
The outer physical being can easily be shaped and moulded by the light of the soul.
We cannot do it the other way around. From the physical we cannot take light and transform the soul. That is absurd. But very often we think that if we go deep within with our physical capacity or vital capacity or mental capacity, then a time will come when the soul and the physical, the vital and the mental will meet together and together establish the divine Truth on earth.
But it is not possible.
It is the soul that has to be brought forward and it is the light from the soul that has to inundate the body, the vital, the mind and the heart.
From inside we have to come outside; from outside we can't go inside.
That is wrong.

"Don't ignore me."
Who ignores whom?
It is when there is no love, no hatred, no concern-when there is nothing between us and someone else-that the question of ignoring others arises.
But we have to know that i can never ignore you.
you cannOT IGNORE me like this..
how can He ignore ME?
im his FRIEND.
He cannot ignore ME just as i cannot ignore ur eyes,ur hands, ur feet.
