Love has nothing to do with somebody else

Osho A-Z

“Man becomes mature the moment he starts loving rather than needing.,” states Osho.

Hands holding a water lily

L O V E

has nothing
to do with
somebody else;
it is your
state of being.
Love is not
a relationship.
A relationship
is possible
but love is not
confined to it,
it is beyond it,
it is more than that.

Man becomes mature
the moment
he starts loving
rather than needing.
He starts overflowing,
he starts sharing,
he starts giving.

And when
two mature persons
are in love,
one of the
greatest paradoxes
of life happens,
one of the most
beautiful phenomena…
they are almost one.
But their oneness
does not destroy
their individuality.
