Take a moment and look around you. Love is the main topic in almost every direction you turn towards, is it not?
Movies, songs, books, art, gossip, countless philosophers throughout human history, all speak about love. You hear love stories every single day.
But what is love really? Nobody can define it, love is beyond definition. It has many forms, and modern society mixes the form of love called romance with its real nature.
Real love is beyond romance, it’s beyond desire and affection, it’s beyond longing and passion. Real love cannot be consciously known, it can be intuitively sensed.
To peak a glimpse of what real love is and how to love better, here are 5 of the most beautiful quotes by the famous spiritual guru Osho. They hold powerful wisdom!
5 Quotes About Love By Osho:
1. “Be loving towards yourself, then you will be able to love others too.”
2. “Once a person is at the center of love, there is very rarely a possibility for him to fall back down, because he has tasted something of the heights. Now valleys will be very dark, ugly, he has seen sunlit peaks, not very high, but still high.”
3. “And that is the trouble with all lovers, they want more love, because they don’t understand that the real desire is not for more love, but for something more than love. Their language ends with love, they don’t know any way that is higher than love, and love does not satisfy. On the contrary, the more you love the more thirsty you become.”
4. “Drop hesitations. People come to me and they say they want to love, they hesitate, they want to meditate, but they hesitate, they would like to dance, but they hesitate. If this hesitation is there and you go on feeding it, you will miss your whole life. It is time, drop it! And nothing else is to be done, just become aware that this is just the way you have been brought up, that’s all.”
5. “If you love somebody and the whole day you say, ‘I love you, I love you,’ many times, and you enjoy saying it, in the beginning the other person may be happy, but sooner or later the thing is going to be too much. ‘I love you, I love you’, you are making a beautiful word useless. Don’t use it too much. Then it is significant, then it carries some meaning. In fact those who are really in love may not use it at all. If the love is not shown by itself it cannot be said, there is no need to say it. And if it is shown by itself, then what is the need to say it? There should be a few key words which you use rarely, very rarely. They should be kept for rare occasions when you touch a peak.”
