Man, ever since the beginning of time, has been looking for true love. Loving anything within the material realm brings untold suffering due to our own desires and needs. These misconceptions are bound to happen when we are ignorant of the real self. Bliss is also continuously sought after by mankind. In fact, what a drunkard pursues through drinks is happiness, which is also similar to someone addicted to physical pleasure. As a matter of fact, all of humanity, without an exception, desires love and joy. None has told them to do so, yet they only seek happiness. No one desires the emotions of sorrow and pain. As the myriad scriptures declare, “Man is made in the likeness of God.” Mystics are called that because they yearn for a divine entity, who transcends all material realms. Man, being a part of this Power, desires God, who alone is synonymous with Love and Joy.
