“Put away the book, the description, the tradition, the authority, and the take the journey of self-discovery. Love, and don’t be caught in opinions and ideas about what love is or should be. When you love, everything will come right. Love has its own action. Love, and you will know the blessings of it. Keep away from the authority who tells you what love is and what it is not. No authority knows and he who knows cannot tell. Love, and there is understanding.”
from the compilation, The Spirit of Loving, editor, Emily Hillburn Sell.
