Love is the only thing where the mind is not needed.

This quote is from Osho, the spiritual teacher:

Love is the only thing where the mind is not needed; and that is where the West is wrong: it brings in the mind even there!

Love is what every human desires. Everything resolves to love. But in the West, even love is calculation, needing mind. There is constant negotiation, neediness, planning.

Love is unconditional giving. This is simple. But most think love is the chemical reaction (like intoxication) one feels when they cannot live without another. That is a distortion perpetuated by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and so many bad movies. Mind is engaged because it is rooted in fear.

Let go of mind and notice if you find the tip of love waiting to be revealed beneath an endless ocean…
