Thought for the day: I am ready to experience love in every moment of my life

Daily Quote: “Sometimes lovers feel that when love is there, they are not. To feel this in love is easy because love is gratifying, but to feel it in hate is difficult because hate is not gratifying. Lovers, deep lovers, have felt that it is not that they “love” – love is not an activity โ€“ rather, they have become love.” ~Osho

Today’s message from Osho is L O V E.

Osho wanted to convey the difference between a “relationship” and “relating.”

Here is an excerpt:
“Relationship means something complete, finished, closed. Love is never a relationship; love is relating. It is always a river, flowing, unending. Love knows no full stop; the honeymoon begins but never ends. It is not like a novel that starts at a certain point and ends at a certain point. It is an ongoing phenomenon. Lovers end, love continues.”

I love the part, “love knows no full stop; the honeymoon begins but never ends.” Relationships are hard work, and from my past (and those of others) and all that I have been learning through self-love and what love truly means to me, I feel it is important to cultivate love and gratefulness for the other person.

It takes two to be a loving pair, and if love is the foremost force or energy between two people, and all actions are based on love and through loving intentions, I believe love continues and grow to new heights.

Osho’s course today also provided two meditations. The first is for self-love. The second one is for couple work.

Self-love is important. If a person cannot love him/herself, he/she is incapable of loving others.
