Love is the ultimate answer.
Love is not an abstraction, but an actual energy or spectrum of energies, which you can "create" and maintain in your being. Just be loving. You are beginning to touch God within yourself, Feel loving. Express your love. Love dissolves fear. You cannot be afraid when you are feeling love. Since everything is energy, and love encompasses all energies, all is love.
When the moon shines in the sky, we can see it directly; we do not need the aid of a torch, lamp or any other artificial light. In the same manner, if you want to be nearer to God, who is the embodiment of love, it is possible only by means of love. Love is just one aspect of life. If you are feeling very pleasant, suddenly you become like a flower. When somebody is in love, if you look at their face, suddenly they look like a flower because they are feeling so pleasant within themselves. Whoever you are in love with, they may not even be aware of it – it does not matter. You are in love, that’s all that matters. It is your emotion. It is the way you are. Love is not something that you do. Love is something that you are.
Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. It is not dependant on some other body or some external form. In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality - as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form. You can then feel the same life deep within every other human being, and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love.
What is God? The eternal one life underneath all the forms of life. What is love? To feel the presence of that one life deep within yourself and within all creatures. To be it. Therefore, all love is the love of God.
