This movement between images is never love. Yet, this is what the world takes to be love, in the love songs, the personal relationships, the marriages, the enforcement of worldly norms of ambition, envy, greed on our children, all of which love is not.
Ask yourself these questions: Is it possible to live without image? Is it possible just to be as you are? Next time you stand in front of a mirror, just look at yourself. Look without movement of thought. Bear the pain, if only for a moment, while truly looking at yourself. Face the fear and look.
Allow your heart to consider what is being said. Allow the heart to observe. Only then is there love present seeing the truth of desire in action spinning out time through thought, spinning out more confusion and fear in the declaration of its world.
You will surely see it. Fear and love do not go together. Fear is thought yoked to pleasure. But love, true love, stands alone. Love is its own fulfilment.
