OSHO on Love

" Love is not a relationship.Love is a state of being; it has nothing to do with anybody else.One is not in love, one is love. And ofcourse when one is love, one is in love-but that is an outcome, a byproduct, that is not the source. The source is that one is love." Osho from his book -courage-the joy of living dangerously.

Apparently, his conception of love is a philosohical and spiritual construction. however, I want to give it exclusively spiritual interpretation in the Christian tradition: If you happen to know and experience God, no matter what way, you end up loving. Because God is fundamentally about Love and He is love. One thing that I agree with OSHO is that love is more than relationship. Love is sacred and eternal. It is not even an offshot of pursuit and manipulation of an encounter with the opposite sex. It is something given and something divine. DB.
