Radha and Krishna – a divine couple that is symbolic of Higher Consciousness and Unconditional Love.
In February 2020, we were at a temple of Lord Krishna. I was drawn to a little idol of Radha & Krishna that was up for sale at the temple shop. I brought this home and placed it in my room.
Energy works in mysterious ways and I have no logical explanation to offer for how certain phenomena work. But simply having the energy of Radha-Krishna around me seems to have accelerated my growth in unconditional love.
I began walking the path of unconditional love in 2018. It deepened when I co-authored the book ‘When Spirit Meets Science’ with my husband Suraj in 2019. While Suraj had mastered unconditional love, I still had more work to do.
In hindsight, I feel bringing Radha-Krishna into my home also played a role in helping me make huge strides towards unconditional love.
It is hard to explain or theorize unconditional love. Though I knew what it meant on paper, I didn’t know how to embody it.
By the summer of 2020, life unfolded such that I was able to fully recognize and acknowledge the unconditional love that was present in my life and also give it back.
Dr. Newton Kondaveti, one of my very revered teachers of metaphysics, was presenting at a conference held some years back, when someone in the audience asked him a question-
“Does such a thing as ‘unconditional love’ actually exist in this world?”
His reply has stayed with me to this day. He said-
‘Love is always unconditional. Such is the nature of love. Conditional love is our erroneous creation.’
So, the question we must be asking is “Does conditional love actually exist?”
Deconditioning from the shackles of ‘conditional love’ and moving towards unconditional love was not easy for me. Challenges and tests were part of the journey. Unhealed wounds had to be dealt with and tears had to be shed. It often felt like my world was crashing down on me and all forms of love would disappear from my life. But it didn’t.
Now that I have reached destination ‘Unconditional Love’ successfully and continue to evolve, it feels like –
“Whoa! What a journey! What a feeling!”
All the turbulence I had to confront right from childhood feels worth it, considering where it brought me.
Unconditional love feels intoxicating in some ways and calming in other ways!
Words cannot do justice to it. Only experience can.
As I continue to explore the depths of unconditional love, I wish you a rich and rewarding journey into the realms of unconditional love within your heart!
