    i love to love what is not known without pretending to know it. that is what i believe. it does not need names like god or gods or the names of beliefs all those things are distractions, which have no part in it.

    Sounds like what I've been reading about in "The Deeper Dimension of Yoga" by Georg Feuerstein. awesome

    I am grateful, to whom or what I do not know.

    It seems we are not to know--but I feel the same. I'm just glad I got some time in this form before returning to--------------
     
  5. It could be said that experience itself is the truest form of knowledge. But, of course, if there is definite meaning to our lives, it is beyond definition.

    Sounds like Bahki Yoga, the yoga of love and devotion.
     
  7. If you love to love what is not known you acknowledge that there is something that you love to love. Unless nothing is in your idea something too, I think you are failing to acknowledge that ultimately there might not be something.

    However, I completely agree it's better to love without pretending to know.

    Seems to me that the trouble with loving what you don't know is that when and if it becomes known it may turn out not to be all that loveable.

    This is something I'm working on as part of my yoga. I've been practicing Hatha Yoga and Kundalini Yoga for a few months ago, and I've been studying it's history as well, etc. I've been trying to practice Karma Yoga and Bhakti Yoga; being a good person, being more compassionate and kind....

    do you wish to be loved without being judged? do you expect to get more then you give?

    I dont see how you can love something you dont know.

    Could you be judged and still loved anyway I wonder.
