Every body seeks love. Love gives meaning to our lives. But as soon as we fall in love, we create bondage of relation ship. When love gets reduced to relationship, we find our self in a prison. Lovers are always full of expectations, always demanding some thing or the other. In real life it is impossible to fulfill all expectations. The two lovers end up becoming intimate enemies. They keep oscillating between love and hate.

In such situation they seek freedom from each other. This freedom becomes a demand with an expectation that the other should give freedom. The lovers start quarreling, day and night. They may want to be free and alone, not knowing what they will do when they are free and alone?

They have not learnt the art of being alone and rejoicing in freedom. Learning this art is important; else one keeps creating similar situations in every relationship.

One must learn to meditate to attain this art and then freedom becomes meaningful. In meditation one can be happy alone and then share this happiness with another. Than it is more of giving and sharing and not expecting or demanding. A person who has enriched his being by becoming more conscious can love truly.

Very few people are capable of enjoying this freedom, because they don’t know how to dance. They are crippled. They don’t know how to sing, how to love. People say to each other, "I love you", ask them what they mean and they will shrug their shoulders…..their love is just fiction.

You cannot love any body unless you know your self. You cannot love any body unless love starts like a flood and overflows you. First you must have love only then you can share it, do you have love?

It is a byproduct of meditation. Only people who have meditated deeply know what love is, and then there is no question of falling in love. Then comes rising in love. You go higher and higher. Your love becomes your religion, your very existence
