Shine!

When we love someone, we should look deeply into the nature of that love.

If we want to be with someone so that we can feel safe, that’s understandable, but it’s not true love.

True love doesn’t foster suffering or attachment.

On the contrary, it brings well-being to ourselves and to others.

True love is generated from within.

For true love to be there, you need to feel complete in yourself, not needing something from outside.

True love is like the sun, shining with its own light, and offering that light to everyone.
