Love With No Fear

Love With No Fear

“In the beginning only peripheries meet. But if the relationship grows intimate, becomes closer, becomes deeper, then by and by centers start meeting.  When centers meet, it is called love.”

“Love is very rare.  To meet a person at his center is to pass through a revolution yourself, because if you want to meet a person at his center, you will have to allow that person to reach to your center also.  You will have to become vulnerable, absolutely vulnerable, open.”

“It is risky.  To allow somebody to reach your center is risky, dangerous, because you never know what that person will do to you.  And once all your secrets are known, once your hiddenness has become unhidden, once you are exposed completely, what that other person will do, you never know.  The fear is there.  That’s why we never open.”
“You can allow somebody to enter to your center only when you are not afraid, when you are not fearful.”

“So I say to you that there are two types of living.  One is fear-oriented, on is love-oriented.  Fear –oriented living can never lead you into deep relationship.  You remain afraid, and the other cannot be allowed, cannot be allowed to penetrate you to your very core.  To an extent you allow the other, and then the wall comes and everything stops.”

“The love-oriented person is the religious person.  The love-oriented person means one who is not afraid of the future, one who is not afraid of the result and the consequence, who lives here and now.” 

“Don’t be bothered about the result.  That is the fear-oriented mind.  Don’t think about what will happen out of it.  Just be here, and act, totally.  Don’t calculate.  A fear-oriented man is always calculating, planning, arranging, safeguarding.  His whole life is lost in this way.”

Risk is required if you wish to experience love.  Trust is required if you wish to experience love.  When you love someone, you become vulnerable.  When you love someone, you become open. To fall asleep next to your lover requires great trust.  Without love, without trust, life is full of fear.  A life full of fear is not a life worth living.  The greatest moments in my life were moments of being in love.  I’d rather live a short and intense life of love than to live a long mediocre life with no love.  I’d rather live a shorter life free than to live a long life in prison.  The best is to live a long life full of love. – SFL May 13 2015
