Unfortunately, it is quite impossible to explain love in normal terms. The word “love” is used in many contexts, which can confuse us.
First of all – people don’t make love. We have sex.
Also – you can’t get love; it’s not out there to find somewhere.
Thirdly – you can’t find love in rituals, like handing someone a diamond ring.
And last – love is not found in any specific place, like in a church.
Student: Then, what is love?
Teacher: It’s what you are.
You’re not your physical body – your body is the physical clothing you’re wearing to experience yourself as love. Love is the energy that keeps the physical body healthy. You have all the attributes of love, as does the sun have the attributes of warmth and light. You’re here to experience yourself in all of your loving glory.
Student: What are the attributes of love?
Teacher: Compassion, kindness, generosity, forgiveness, gentility … you tell me.
