Q: What is the difference between the love one has for one’s mate and the love Soul has for God?
Is one sort of love better than the other? And is it still possible to fall in love with someone after you reach God Consciousness?
A: The highest love is a pure love for God.
A pure love for one’s mate is the same as a pure love for God. There is no difference. But, frankly, pure love is a rarity—whether for God or for mate.
“Falling in love” usually means falling into karma. Karma—good, bad, or neutral—sets the tone for a relationship. For example, some couples love to fight.
The attraction between people of a high state of consciousness is a mutual desire to serve God and life. Such a couple join forces to help each other reach even higher states of being.
A high, pure love is sweet indeed.
