I realized that Maharishi was offering love with detachment, the mark of a great sage. I remembered one of his favorite remarks, which he once directed to me: “I love you, but it’s none of your business.”

Recollections of a Former Disciple from Huffington Post
If we are wondering what life is about, why we are here, why we should continue on, what we ought to be doing, we can always default to the failsafe of love.
Why are we here?
To learn how to love. To learn how to be loved.
What is the point of it all?
What is it that, the more we give it away the more of it we have?
What is it that everyone is looking for from someone else, but that can only be felt when we have it ourselves for someone else?
What is it that underpins the whole of the universe?
If we are looking for a reason to be here, we could do worse than to choose love.
Today I will choose to love someone somewhere for no other reason than because I can.
