Title: Thoughts of Love By Samina Nazim


1
  • Thoughts on love

When I say I know you, I mean I knew you
yesterday. I do not know you actually now. All I
know is my image of you. That image is put
together by what you have said in praise of me or
to insult me, what you have done to me it is
put together by all the memories I have of you
and your image of me is put together in the same
way, and it is those images which have
relationship and which prevent us from really
communing with each other.

It is only when we see without any
preconception, any image, that we are able to be
in direct contact with anything in life. All our
relationships are really imaginary that is,
based on an image formed by thought. If I have an
image about you and you have an image about me,
naturally we dont see each other at all as we
actually are. What we see is the images we have
formed about each other which prevent us from
being in contact, and that is why our
relationships go wrong.

Dont you know what it means really to love
somebody to love without hate, without jealousy,
without anger, without wanting to interfere with
what he is doing or thinking, without condemning,
without comparing dont you know what it means?
Where there is love is there comparison? When you
love someone with all your heart, with all your
mind, with all your body, with your entire being,
is there comparison? When you totally abandon
yourself to that love there is not the other.

Love is not the product of thought which is the
past. Thought cannot possibly cultivate love.
Love is not hedged about and caught in jealousy,
for jealousy is of the past. Love is always
active present. It is not I will love or I
have loved. If you know love you will not follow
anybody. Love does not obey. When you love there
is neither respect nor disrespect.

Love is something that is new, fresh, alive. It
has no yesterday and no tomorrow. It is beyond
the turmoil of thought. It is only the innocent
mind which knows what love is, and the innocent
mind can live in the world which is not
innocent. To find this extraordinary thing which
man has sought endlessly through sacrifice,
through worship, through relationship, through
sex, through every form of pleasure and pain, is
only possible when thought comes to understand
itself and comes naturally to an end. Then love
has no opposite, then love has no conflict.

Does love have responsibility and duty, and will
it use those words? When you do something out of
duty is there any love in it? In duty there is no
love. The structure of duty in which the human
being is caught is destroying him. So long as you
are compelled to do something because it is your
duty you dont love what you are doing. When
there is love there is no duty and no
responsibility.

The power of true love is  overwhelming. Love 
wears the garb of simplicity, speaks the language
of purity, walks the path of humility, adopts the
code of tolerance and commits itself to
respecting the beloved's every wish
