I am happiest when ideating on God

The term “ideation” is the English translation of the Sanskrit word bhava. There are many Sanskrit words derived from the root bhava. Don’t be confused by those. I am referring to bhava as it relates to a deep feeling or sentiment. Ideation (bhava) is that feeling involving intense love and devotion.

Devotion is like falling in love. When you are in love you are constantly longing to see the beloved. In devotion there is a sweet pain of separation. Ideation on God is the longing for the Beloved.

Writing is a form of ideation for me.

I wrote this little post while I was listening to kiirtans at soundcloud
