What is Love?

February 11, 2012 by  

An age old question. But perhaps these quotes from Rumi, a 12th century mystic, get it right.

Love is from the infinite and will remain until Eternity.

Love cannot be described. It must be tasted.

It is love that holds everything together. And it is the everything also.

I have died many times but your breath made me alive again.

Close the language door and use the love window. The moon won’t use the door, only the window.

love is all around us

The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

A thousand half-loves must be forsaken to take one whole heart home.

Love rests on no foundation. It is an endless ocean, with no beginning or end.

I was you and never knew it.

This is love: to fly toward a secret sky,
to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.
First, to let go of life.
In the end, to take a step without feet.

Sending you all Love and Light.
