Expand love in our hearts

Questioner: How can we expand the love within our hearts?

Sadhguru: Beyond this identity you call as "myself" is a certain amount of energy functioning in a certain way. What kind of expression this energy finds is what your life is right now. This energy, this moment, can become love, joy, misery, or hatred. This same energy can become ecstasy. Yes?

At different points in your life you have felt this same energy finding expression in different ways.

How did your energy find expression in different ways? Whichever way the external situations were, accordingly, you reacted to that.

Or in other words, your life energies are in deep enslavement to the external situation.
As long as your life energies are in deep enslavement with the outside, you are bound to live like an accidental person. If situations around you are conducive, you are loving.
If situations around you are boiling, you also boil. The basic aspect of being human means that everything in you should happen by choice not by compulsion.

If you had a choice as to what kind of expression this energy should find right now what expression would you offer it?

Love and joy- there's no question about it. Nobody needs to teach you to choose to be joyous. That life has already chosen.

Finding a conscious expression to your life energies is the important aspect of being here as a human being.
