The Idea of Love

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Everything we do speaks of love: songs, stories, books, movies ...  And yet, few know anything of it.  Most people are enamoured with the idea of being in love.  To be enamoured is not to be in love.  To love is to remove the self since the capacity to love is Divine, and what we have is but a reflection of it.  As long as we address the “other” as the “other”, there is separation.  All of us love the idea of being in love.  Most of us have not loved.
