  • The Search for the Eternal Lover

  • You are all in search of a secret love.

  • And you are all

  • trying to find it in somebody

  • Hence the frustration

  • all lovers

  • except those

  • who are never allowed to meet.

  • Only those who are never allowed to meet are remembered,

  • for centuries, for their great love.

  • In the East we know

  • Shiri and Farhad,

  • Laila and Majnu.

  • Because they were never allowed to meet

  • by their parents and society

  • they have become symbolic of great lovers.

  • But it is strange:

  • they were never allowed

  • even to meet with each other,

  • and they have become the symbols of great love.

  • And what has happened to

  • millions of lovers

  • who have been allowed?

  • Not a single one of them

  • has proved to be a great lover.

  • All are simply lousy.

  • Every love affair is a failure,

  • without exception.

  • You may accept it, you may not.

  • One tries to hide the fact

  • as long as possible,

  • but everybody knows what everybody is doing.

  • The reason is that Your frustration

  • is bound to happen.

  • Your real love

  • is for the eternal self,

  • hidden behind

  • the curtain,

  • and you never look

  • behind the curtain.

  • You are just playing on the stage

  • and befooling.

  • Everybody’s

  • great love is to know the secret

  • of the eternal and immortal life.

  • Because you cannot find it in another person.

  • When you meet on the sea beach

  • it seems that

  • to everyone

  • it is the same story

  • Thatthis woman

  • or this man

  • is made for me.”

  • And Nobody is made for anybody;

  • everybody is made for himself.

  • You are not some

  • kind of manufactured parts,

  • that you are made to fit with each other.

  • So when you don’t fit,

  • then the tragedy begins.

  • Before that all is goody-goody.

  • The real test is after the honeymoon.

  • After the honeymoon the lovers are finished,

  • they don’t look at each other eye to eye.

  • The husband goes on reading the same newspaper

  • to avoid the wife….

  • A man in the pub

  • was saying to his

  • friend

  • That, “Why do you always remain silent?

  • You don’t say anything.”

  • He said,

  • The whole credit goes to my wife.

  • She talks and I listen.

  • She does not like any interruption.

  • So after years of listening without interrupting,

  • it has become a habit.

  • Wherever I am,

  • even though my wife is not there,

  • I sit silently.”

  • The failure of love in the world

  • shows a significant fact:

  • that our love is searching for something else,

  • and because we don’t find it

  • in our so-called lovers,

  • the frustration arises.

  • Nobody is responsible,it is just that our direction is wrong.

  • The real lover is within you.

  • The eternal lover is within you.

  • Once you have found it,

  • you are

  • absolutely content

  • with yourself.

  • There is no need

  • for anyone

  • because you are no longer incomplete.

  • Only a buddha

  • is fulfilled.
