"Our culture has a huge misconception of what Love is. We have tried to force Love, to find it in physical features, to look for it in sex and pleasure, or find it in what someone can do for us. Relationships are where most people look for Love, but relationships cannot give us love, they can only help us connect to the Love that is already within us. Failing to understand what Love is, we try to make it selective, and depend on the person that awakened the feeling of Love in us as if they were the source of our Love, and we suffer greatly because of this. Love is not something we can get; it is something that we are, something that exists within us, and all we need do is surrender to it, tap into it, and let it consume us wholly.
If we confuse love with attachment, with the need to feel safe, and the need to have someone we can depend on and fulfill our desires and expectations, we will only suffer, as we are not really acting in love, but in fear. Fear is controlling, dependent, and insecure, and fear stems from a lack of love, from a lack of realizing our true nature. Fear is not a quality of Love, it is a quality of ego."
