Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. – Matthew 22:37 (KJV)
This verse points toward something far more significant than one may at first realize.
To know God, to really know God, one must first be aware and awake on the very deepest level of existence.
There, love takes on a meaning vastly different and more significant. It is all consuming. It is the very material the universe is made of. The movement, too, as well as the ‘goal’ of the entire universe, is experienced as love itself… all things gravitating back to the ocean that birthed, eternally is, and remains the goal of all action, all that is in unified oneness.
All things gravitate back to Shiva.
The sum total of the movement, the essence, and the goal taken as one, is the Krishna value. Krishna Consciousness is the name given to the level of enlightenment underlying the verse above. It is the loss of the self as it is known to be. It is total consumption in the Love of God. The individuality is gone. Only God remains. It is not an emotional state. It is a level of enlightenment.
It is existence in totality directly experienced as it truly is.
