Be Love

Love is not a feeling. It is ceasing to see the self as separate. I experience you as part of myself. When I experience and love myself, that is not a feeling either; it is the agape-love, whereby I love you and all beings as myself. I am participating in the Creator's love who makes His sun to shine and His rain to fall on all alike; all participate in this kind of love. It involves compassion, feelings.

~ from the book, Praying Naked; The Spirituality of Anthony De Mello by J. Francis Stroud, S.J.
