WHAT IS LOVE?

Posted on March 28, 2011 at 10:33 AM

 

"When mystics use the word love, they use it very carefully -- in

the deeply spiritual sense, where to love is to know; to love is

to act. If you really love, from the depths of your

Consciousness, that love gives you a native wisdom. You perceive

the needs of others intuitively and clearly, with detachment from

any personal desires; and you know how to act creatively to meet

those needs, dexterously surmounting any obstacle that comes in

the way. Such is the immense, driving power of love."

-- Eknath Easwaran

"Therefore, when I say that ‘I love,’ it is not I who love, but

in reality Love who acts through me. Love is not so much

something I do as something that I am. Love is not a doing but a

state of being - a relatedness, a connectedness to another

mortal, an identification with her or him that simply flows

within me and through me, independent of my intentions or my

efforts."

-- Robert A. Johnson

"When you are aware that you are the force that is Life, anything

is possible. Miracles happen all the time, because those miracles

are performed by the heart. The heart is in direct communion with

the human soul, and when the heart speaks, even with the

resistance of the head, something inside you changes; your heart

opens another heart, and true love is possible."

-- Don Miguel Ruiz
