“What we call love is something that is so generic that it’s not even what love really is. Love is much more than words can describe….We we cannot really talk about the truth; we need to experience the truth. The same is true of love. The only way to really know love is to experience love, to have the courage to jump into the ocean of love, and perceive it in its totality. That is the only way, but we are programmed with so much fear that we don’t see the love coming from all around us. We look for love in other people when they don’t love themselves. Of course we won’t find love there; we only find selfishness and a war of control.
You don’t have to search for love. Love is here because God is here; the force of life is everywhere. We humans create the story of separation, and we search for what we believe we don’t have. We search for perfection, for love, for truth, for justice, and we search and search when everything is inside of us. Everything is here; we just need to open our spiritual eyes to see it.”
Don Miguel Ruiz, in “The Voice of Knowledge”
