Love and Freedom

Love is vast attachment,
inseparable from,
an even greater dynamism devoted to the full and complete creative realisation of the object of one’s love.
That is, to quote Sting, “If you love someone, set them free.”
So, loving someone is impossible without the capacity to suffer through loss and heartbreak: what you love and have come to fuse into your life, you must, in the action of loving liberation, be able to let go.

Freedom from suffering is not an attribute of love.
Select freedom from suffering as your ultimate goal,
and you can love no more.
