Life is love and love is life. What keeps the body together but love? What is desire but love of the self? What is fear but the urge to protect? And what is knowledge but the love of truth? The means and forms are sometimes wrong, but the motive behind is always love; love of the me and the mine. The me and the mine, however, are too small to include everybody, so someone is always left out or hurt by that kind of love. Unconditional love learns how to embrace the entire universe, every moment, everyone. Love is accepting another as yourself, love is Union. Love is all there is, for everything is made of it.
