Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo
The Complete Set
Is there no real love in the human world?... Where is the crux of the trouble?
In the self-delusion of the vital. Human love is mainly vital, when it is not vital and physical together. It is also sometimes psychic + vital. But the Love with a dominant psychic element is rare.
I am in agony; a great upheaval is going on. Oh, how I wish for something real! real love! Can you not give me, make me feel, overwhelm me – even if for 10 minutes – with your love, and make life worth living?
What is real love? Get clear of all the sentimental sexual turmoil and go back to the soul – then there is real love. It is then also you would be able to receive the overwhelming love without getting the lower being into an excitement which might be disastrous.
