Self/स्/शिव is Love in Action.

Time is an emergent property of That which is beyond time. That (तत्) is Self (स्व is शिव). Self is the eternal, deathless and everlasting One moving as in bringing forth itself (Karma/कर्म means ‘self/स्/शिव is love in action’) as life diversified (biodiversity) out of the desire for companionship, friendship, love (Kama/काम is the desire of self to be able to love and be loved in endless return). Synopsis. At any time, there is only one self and the the purpose of self is love with love being a synonym for this simple feeling of joy (आनन्द) that companionship and friendship brings.
