What is love?

From the book ‘Being in Love’ of Osho, page 204

Relating means you are always starting, you are introducing yourself to each other. You are trying to see the many facets of the other’s personality. You are trying to penetrate deeper and deeper into his realm of inner feelings, into the deep recesses of her being. You are trying to unravel a mystery which cannot ben unraveled.

That is the joy of love: the exploration of consciousness.

And if you relate, and don’t reduce it to a relationship, then the other will become a mirror to you. Exploring the other, unawares you will be exploring yourself too. Getting deeper into the other, knowing your own deeper stirrings too. Lovers become mirrors to each other, and then love becomes a meditation.
