See what is this need for love in a human being? Constantly a human being is longing to be something more, than what they are right now. The thing is, you want to include something which is not a part of you as yourself – that is a whole effort. If it happens emotionally, on the emotional level if you try this, we call this a love affair.
You’re trying to make somebody who is not a part of you, a part of yourself emotionally. This is a love affair. If you do it consciously, we call this yoga. Yoga means union. Love is not a relationship, love is a certain sweetness of your emotion. Whether you look at a tree, or a dog, or a man, or a woman, or a child, or just at the sky – why can’t you look at it lovingly? Because it’s not about loving the sky, it’s about the sweetness of your emotion.
Love is not something that you do, it is something that you can become.
If you’re willing, you can become love. You can make your emotion into a very sweet space. Love is not something that you do, it is something that you can become.
For five minutes every day, go sit with something that does not mean anything to you. Maybe a tree, or a pebble, or worm, or an insect. After some time you will find you can look upon it with as much love as you hold for your wife, husband, mother, child, or dog. Maybe the worm does not know this, the insect does not know this – that does not matter. If you can look at everything lovingly, the whole world explodes into a beautiful phenomena for you. You realise love is not something that you do, it is the way you are.
