Each time we think or speak of our Love “for” (or “of”) someone, we could experiment with omitting the “because.” Instead of I love XXX, followed by a long and admiring list of, They are so…, we could simply try on, I love XXX. Period. We could experiment with omitting their qualities, whether perceived as “superficial” (beautiful, talented, smart, accomplished…) or “deep” (wise, kind, caring, evolved, soulful…) We could experiment with omitting their personality, their beliefs and values, their accomplishments and achievements, their circumstances, their life story… And we could get in touch with the choice-less-ness, the condition-less-ness, the “I-can’t-help-it-ness” of our Love (for them). Then we’ll know Love for the first time. Without armor or defense, condition or qualification. We’ll know Love as our very nature, independent of “the other.” We’ll know ourselves as the source of Love, and Love as the source of us. By dropping the qualities of the other, the “you” falls away from “I love you.” By recognizing the choice-less-ness, condition-less-ness, and I-can’t-help-it-ness, the “I” falls away too. And what remains, is only Love. We become naked and liberated in Love, freed of the burden of reason and justification. We see that “because” is the attachment, the bondage, keeping us believing that without the other and their acting this way or that way, we wouldn’t be (in) Love. We see that Love just is, no matter what.
