“You” Are Not The Beloved

It is the responsibility of the devotee to love, not to get love, but to be love. 

That’s what a devotee is. 

People have just the opposite idea. 

They think to be a devotee is to be somehow cherished by the Divine. 

The Divine is the Beloved. 

 Devotees are not the Beloved. 

The devotee is not the one who gets loved. 

The Divine gets loved.
