the opposite of love is fear

May 2, 2012

It is not necessary to seek for what is true but it is necessary to seek for what is false. Every illusion is one of fear, whatever form it takes. And the attempt to escape from one illusion into another must fail.

If you seek love outside yourself you can be certain that you perceive hatred within, and are afraid of it. Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all of the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
