“The more you love, the more you have it.
The more you give, the more the universe goes on pouring into you from all sides. There are hidden springs, just as in a well.
Love has an underground way of filling you, invisible.
The only way to know is just give it and see — you are always full.”
As usual, Osho has great insights in sharing about the three stages of love. Love does have the power of changing or transforming people, and I agree that the more we love, the more we have it because the universe goes on pouring into us from all sides. Proverbs mentions this truth as well – “The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself”. Yes, the universe never shortchanges us whenever we love ourselves and others. I would see this as a self-perpetuating cycle of love – love begins from our highest self – when we know our true identity as Unconditional Love, we will learn to love ourselves, and out of the overflow of loving and accepting ourselves, we will love and accept others unconditionally too. We love because He (our true identity and highest self) first loved us. In fact, when we love ourselves, we are also loving others at the same time because we are one with them.
I thought the following is an apt song that summarises the topic on loving ourselves and loving others – it goes a long way to healing the world (indeed, Michael Jackson is a visionary whose songs are timeless). 🙂
We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die
In my heart I feel
You are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear
Together we’ll cry happy tears
See the nations turn
Their swords into plowshares
We could really get there
If you cared enough for the living
Make a little space to make a better place.
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for
You and for me.
