There is a great difference between physical attraction and love. Many people consider physical attraction to be love itself and consequently they do not come to a deep understanding.
Love can bring you to deep understanding but one has to go in love deeper and deeper.
Physical attraction is just the periphery. With periphery, you will never come to deep understanding.
Love in itself is beautiful but when it is mixed with ego, it is saturated. Love is like a pool which you have to keep on digging. As you dig deeper and deeper, deep understanding emerges from it.
When you are in love, you have a longing for meeting the other. When the wish is there, you are always in the urge of fulfilling it. You do not try to find out what that wish is, where it comes from and what is there behind this feeling.
The treasure is not found on the periphery but rather in the center. So, go profoundly within, with infinite patience. Infinite patience will bring you closer to yourself. The closer you are to yourself, the more intimate you will be with your partner. Being in love is also an emotion and the longing associated with it brings suffering to you.
Longing is desire mixed with sufferings.
You need to have infinite patience, only then you can work on yourself. Always be a spontaneous lover, without any conditioning, without any longing. Just being in love is beautiful. Do not attach anything to it.
When you are in love, you feel that everything that surrounds you is beautiful. At that specific moment, you become more loving and you radiate this love to your surroundings. Here, your fragrance is in tune with Existence.
Enjoy these moments to the fullest.
