Don’t Try to “Possess” Love

“Because love cannot be contained because love is life in all its abundance, then we can easily understand that behind the desire to possess objects is the desire to possess love.”  Choose Only Love, bk.2,1:I

We ARE wanting love–with all our heart.  But the idea of possession is, I think, wrong.  When we possess, we want to keep it all to ourselves.  And love, by its very nature, is a sharing concept.  We reach to our brothers and sisters, and when we love them unconditionally we don’t want to hinder their growth by holding so tightly.  If need be, we love enough to let go.
