We are asking a much more fundamental, deeper question: Why is man against man? Aren’t you against somebody? Aren’t you violent? And you are the whole of humanity. I know we like to think we are separate individuals, private souls—but we are not. You are the rest of mankind because you suffer, agonize, are lonely, depressed like all the rest. So you are basically, fundamentally the rest of mankind. You are humanity, and you are, whether you like it or not, in the global sense.
If you have no love—do what you will, go after all the gods on earth, do all the social activities, try to reform the poor, enter politics, write books, write poems—you are a dead human being. Without love your problems will increase, multiply endlessly. And with love, do what you will, there is no risk, there is no conflict. Then love is the essence of virtue.
Be free, live happily, joyously, without any antagonism, without any hate. Then life becomes something quite different. Then life has a meaning, is full of joy and clarity.
There's love when I don't -supposedly- know what to do? I don't feel such love but anguish to a certain extent. Is this love and I'm not able to see it?
dear—you have this whole sense of self, this isolation, this entire process of sensations you feel, which complicates your being, you bring your mind and thoughts into everything, love isn’t that—
