How I came to experience love towards God.
A human being can only experience godliness. Through that experience the feeling comes to our mind, and it defines it as God.
So no-one has ever seen God, is my own opinion.
Whenever a person tries to learn Meditation, actually the drive behind learning or practicing to attain a state of no-mind is what one’s love towards God is. God is always in present, everywhere and eternal so any effort to bring your body to no-mind state is actually your urge to attain no-mind state and that ultimately leads to experience the present moment where God is always waiting for you. This is like looking towards the Sun and immediately the shadow, Ego, disappears. We keep running behind the shadow while it is futile attempt. Sufi mystics and Jews believed that returning (here turning towards him or practicing meditation sense) to God is ultimate of human life.
How much one aspires to know himself of God is one’s love towards God. What you attain is moments in present ie Godliness and it brings relaxation to mind and body because you have touched the source of ultimate energy and your level was so low that within moments a lot of energy(data) is transferred.
Being a human one need not have to remain in present moment for full day but just two minutes is sufficient to live as a flower and God will accept it as a garland.
