Somehow I suddenly found myself reading Rabindranath Tagore—the great early 20th Century Indian writer—and came across this.
It is the answer I wasn’t seeking to the question I wasn’t asking.
Why do we, as humans, seek to find and love one another? Why are we so curious in our ever-longing for love?
Because what we are searching for, in my view, is God, and we find God in love.
Some of the world's truest of spiritual truths come from India... you know? Because the sages lived in the forest, away from the world.
