The problem with interpersonal love is that you are dependent on the other person to reflect love back to you. That’s part of the illusion of separateness. The reality is that love is a state of being that comes from within.
- Ram Dass, “Tuning the Mind”
We all expect that love will be available, freely, to us, because we are charismatic. We believe that we are all loveable. We believe that if we are not loveable, it is the other person’s fault. We need to love ourselves, and then, everyone loves us!
