As human beings, with our innate and huge capacity to love, we naturally project that love outside ourselves onto the teacher, the lover, the child, another. But is it possible that in assigning love to another we somehow inadvertently exclude ourselves from love? The conversations in this beautiful meeting from the archives focus primarily on the topics of love and the true meaning of devotion.
Sometimes we imagine it is safer to love someone other than who we think we are. This is the story of separation: ‘What I love is not myself.’ But if you are to love fully and completely, you will never find yourself separate from that love. Love is consciousness. Love is peace. Love is who you are.
