The lover and the loved

Love is not in me or in you. Love is between us. One can ‘see’ the connection between beings who are united in this way, just as it cannot be discerned between beings who are not. “For love effects a likeness between the lover and the loved.”  

Other people

The more we subscribe to the idea of ‘other people’—that is, of people separate from and unrelated to ourselves—the more suffering we create. Love does not make these distinctions. How can I say that I help others when the others are myself.
