Ignorance is giving importance to something which is not important – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Surrendering to the Lord, you can achieve the fully blossomed state of consciousness.

You will find that it is love that rules the world. The center core of the existence rules this whole universe. Just like the sun is the center of the solar system and rules all the planets, love is the core of your life. Love is beyond your changing body, changing thoughts, and changing feelings. It is the very center, core, of your existence, which is very subtle and delicate. It can be called lover or anything else. That consciousness, the core of existence is responsible for this whole creation. There lies the Lordship.

Love is in-built in creation. This is how the creation is functioning.

When your consciousness is filled with ignorance, then there is restlessness. There is unhappiness and suffering. Misery is due to ignorance. Ignorance is giving importance to something which is not important; that which is not worthy of that importance – thinking that something that is changing to be permanent, imagining something which is not joyful to be joyful, considering something impure to be pure, etc.
