On Eros:

‘Eros according to Plato, what he really meant, Eros is that fire, that thirst for the Divine. This fire, this love, is a driving force let’s say that takes off and leads to the realization of the Divine… Therefore the Eros transforms this energy from the lower chakras and gives it to the higher chakras, to talk in chakra terms.’ ‘Without Eros we cannot become philosophers!’

On the Heart and Love:

The Heart is the symbol of the center, both the microcosmic center (individual entity) and the macrocosmic center (universal entity).

If you look for the heart you find Love, and Love is supreme Knowledge that offers rest and beatitude to the tired wayfarer, comfort and growth to the Soul immersed in måyå-avidyå.

He who has reached the center of the Heart has reached not only his own centrality but the center of all things; he has realized the identity with the central spiritual sun which is the true Heart of all the worlds; he has resolved all dualities of the samsåra and broken through the transitory orbits. He who has attained the center of the Heart feeds on the fire of Love, that love that “moves the sun and the other stars”.

Love is quality of fullness, is fusing, resolving, liberating, while feeling is conservative and acquisitive quality. The sentimental ego must acquire and obtain that which it does not have by nature, and therefore needs support and dependence.

It is necessary to distinguish between sacred Love and profane love, the former is supra-individual and suprasensory, the latter operates in the individual and particular domain.

On Humility:

Humility does not constitute only a moral virtue, benign and linked to the human plane and therefore of an ethical and sentimental-religious character; nor can it be said to be only an intellectual quality, although Humility, which we have talked about, comprehends without doubt these positive qualities.

Humility represents a spiritual symbol and as such it incorporates an immense, infinite value because it represents the accomplishment of total renunciation and all identifications, because it renounces the entire scope of the mental content from the gross object to the universal Being (Ishvara), and is therefore the essence itself of renunciation (samnyasa) in its most elevated form: self-renunciation.  That is renunciation towards oneself, the renunciation of the jiva-center of the self-consciousness to “exist” as a separated entity, and therefore the solution and extinction (nirvana) in the Self-atman.

Humility is self-renunciation; the vital expression, humble and comprehensive, and not only is it the prelude in a certain measure to one’s own spiritual elevation, but as a matter of fact attains complete Knowledge-realization.  It can be said that it is the “clear sign” of all-pervasive. Knowledge that manifests the Unity of Consciousness of one who has attained to really and totally living one’s own omni-comprehensive visions.
