Man is pulled from four sides in life: by nature, circumstances, law, and the ideal.
Love has its own law.
The mystic does not observe the law; he himself is the law.
Above law is love; above love is the Beloved.
God is love; so God is beyond the law, for love is above the law.
If we come to any solution of our ever-rising questions, it is never by studying the law that we find satisfaction, but by diving deep into love and letting love inspire us.
What is religion? In the outer sense of the word, a form given for the worship of God, a law given to the community that it may live harmoniously. And what does religion mean in the inner sense of the word? It means a staircase made for the soul to climb to that plane where truth is realized.
