I must have affection, love, otherwise we can't communicate things which are very serious. I must listen with affection, care.
Through the negation of what is not love you come to that which is love.
Love is not desire, pleasure, possession, attachment or jealousy. Love is not me and my ambition, my fulfilment. Everything that thought has created is not love.
In the perception of that intelligence is taking place, that quality of love, which is compassion, not as an idea but in one's heart, burning, alive. Compassion, love and intelligence go together; without intelligence there is no compassion.
