Love is Beyond Marriage
“Marriage is a false substitute for love. A man or a woman should be allowed to choose their partners and to change their partners whenever they feel. The government has no business in it, the society has nothing to do with it. It is two individuals’ personal affair. The privacy of it is sacred. If two people want to live together, they don’t need any permission from any priest or any government. They need the permission of their hearts. And the day they feel that the time has come to part, again they don’t need anybody’s permission. They can part as friends, with beautiful memories of their loving days. Love should be the only way for men and women to live together. No other ritual is needed.”
“If man’s love is free, there will not be blacks and whites, and there will not be these ugly discriminations, because love knows no boundaries. You can fall in love with a black man, you can fall in love with a white man. Love knows no religious scriptures. It knows only the heartbeat, and it knows it with absolute certainty. Once love is free, it will prepare the ground for other fundamental rights.” – Osho “Sermons in Stones” pg. 559-560
I promote real love, not marriage. Real love is living, it is alive, it is in the moment. It is a private affair, it is nobody’s business, not your parents, not your friends, not your relatives, not the courts, not the lawyers, not the judges, not the policeman, not the neighbors, not the strangers, etc. It is nobody’s business but for the two individuals who are deeply in love. They can share their intimacy in private; they can truly enjoy each other’s company without any outside distractions whatsoever. The love that they share together completes them and makes them whole. It is something positive and healing.
Once this love is shared, this positive loving energy is then shared with the world in every expression of that human being. Everything that he or she does becomes radiated with love, now they see the world from a whole new perspective; it has come from SD to Full HD. Marriage attempts to make love permanent, love cannot be permanent, love lives moment to moment. In order for love to live, there must be constant appreciation, the mind has to be dropped, the past has to be dropped, the future has to be dropped. True love can only exist when you are in meditation. If you practice love with meditation, it becomes eternal. – SFL April 26 2015
