“Love is not an emotion. It is not always kind. It does not maintain one appearance only. Ideas of being loving and lovable conjure up certain forms of behavior and mannerisms and certain forms of etiquette and social obligation. But this is only acting at love. Love is very powerful. It does not need your creations. It only needs for you to become an empty vessel through which it can express itself.” — Wisdom from the Greater Community

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”— Rumi

“Your giving and searching for ways to give is Love in action. This is the evidence of Spirit at work.” — Marshall Vian Summers

“Only from a place of self-love can you offer correction to yourself and to others.” — Steps to Knowledge

“Love the Lord with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.” — Jesus Christ


“Love is not thinking that everything is going to be fine and that God is taking care of everything. Indeed, God has sent you here to take care of everything! Love is a position of self-acceptance, responsibility, cooperation and contribution. That is love. It is clear. It is sober. And it is able to face whatever life brings across its path. Love treats every difficulty as an opportunity. It does not deny the realities of life. It does not seek to gain personal advantage by denying reality. It does not seek to put a happy face on every event of life. This is love. This is God’s love.” — Love and Fear

“Love is a sacred reserve of energy; it is like the blood of spiritual evolution” — Teilhard de Chardin

“Real love emanates from Spirit. It in essence is the expression of Spirit. When Spirit moves you to do something—perhaps something you were never planning to do, something you do not understand, something that flies in the face of your plans and goals and ambitions—this expresses love because you are expressing the Will of God, which is the Love of God.” — The Great Love

“Being with God is an intense experience of love, calling and purpose. The more you focus on this, the more it melts aware the icy cold of separation, like the sun melting the ice off of the mountain.” — Marshall Vian Summers

“When I look inside and see that I am nothing, that is wisdom. When I look outside and see that I am everything, that is love. And between these two, my life turns.” — Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj


“Spirit is only a potential; you do not yet have it. Love is only a potential; you do not yet have it. You can claim them for yourself. You can declare their presence in your life. You can even claim that you have achieved great things with them, but real courage, real Spirit and real love emanate from you when they are being expressed every moment. They are a demonstration of your life.” — Wisdom from the Greater Community Vol. 2

“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.” — Osho

“People vacillate between excitement and dread. They seek love as a kind of escape and intoxication to free them from the constant burden and overshadowing of fear and regret, whereas real love remains a mystery to them, real love emanating from Spirit.” — The Shock of the Future

“Love arises when you honor your nature because that is the fundamental act of self-acceptance.” — Wisdom from the Greater Community

“It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations.” — Khalil Gibran


“To love is to recognize yourself in another.” — Eckhart Tolle

“People treat the experience of being in love as if it is an ultimate experience, but there is no guarantee that this will lead to a successful relationship, for a successful relationship must be built on purpose, readiness and compatibility.” — Love and Relationships

“The spiritual meaning of love is measured by what it can do. Love is meant to heal. Love is meant to renew. Love is meant to bring us closer to God.” — Marcus Aurelius

“Without judgment, without illusion, without fantasy and without the limitations of a purely human viewpoint, you will see that love is flowing from you. You will see that all your frustration in life is your inability to experience and to express this love which wishes to flow from you. Regardless of the circumstances in which your frustration arises, it is always because you cannot express love.” — Steps to Knowledge

“There is the Great Love, the love that God has placed within you, within every person, waiting to be discovered, waiting to be expressed and experienced. This love does not have only one appearance. It is not associated with a certain kind of behavior or etiquette. It is not a social convention. This love will pull you away from danger. This love will challenge your thinking and your attitudes. This love will show you that your life is going nowhere. This love will move you to go one way when you want to go another. This love will restrain you. This love will redirect you. This is a Great Love. This is the real thing! Even if you are all alone in life, if you can feel the movement of Spirit, you will feel the love of God.” — The Great Love

“You claim that you love somebody, but if they don’t fulfill your needs, you won’t love them. I don’t call this love, I call this a mutual benefit scheme.” — Sadhguru


“When you experience real devotion or when you recognize it being experienced genuinely by anyone else, you will see the evidence of God in the world. Devotion is the highest expression of love. It is love’s most complete expression.” — Greater Community Spirituality

“Passionate love is like a flame that burns very hot, but that cannot burn for very long. It is based on fear, hope and fantasy. It is imbued with desire, and it reinforces personal insecurity and personal neediness. This is the love experience that so many people are pursuing in life at great expense, but it is not an experience that can lead to a really successful relationship in most cases. What you are looking for is an experience of recognition—a deep, quiet, powerful experience. It is not highly emotional. It is not fraught with fear, anxiety and uncertainty. It is coming from a deeper place within you. It is Spirit recognizing another. This is very different from the experience of falling in love, which is really entering a kind of pathetic, unknowing state, filled with desire, fear and uncertainty.” — Love and Relationships

“You are indeed worthy of god’s love. In fact, you really are God’s love. Without pretense of any kind, at the very core of yourself, this is your True Self. It is not the Self you yet experience, and until you do experience it, do not pretend that this is your experience. But hold in true awareness that this is your Self. You are a person, but you are greater than a person. How can you be unworthy of God’s love if that is what you are?” — Steps to Knowledge

“Love is a deeper power that moves people to do things that are different from their ideas, their beliefs and their sense of obligation. Love is something beyond the love you hear about in conversations. In fact, it is better to demonstrate love than to talk about it, for real love is demonstrated. It is what moves people to change their lives, to refocus their priorities, to associate with something deeper and more profound within themselves. It is something that has the power to override human ambition, human selfishness, human grievance, all partisan beliefs and attitudes and religious ideology.” — The Great Love
