Continued from the previous post on Veils of Misery…
Without love, self-study becomes ‘another day’ stuff. Without surrender, self-study is not charming. Do you see what I am saying? Without devotion, without love, the spiritual path becomes very dry like stylo foam. It is like a cake without sweet, a pudding without sugar, bread without salt or taste. Ishwarapranidhaana. How can love for the Lord happen? How can it blossom?
