True love leads you into freedom….OSHO
Real love shares; it is not to exploit the other, it is not to possess the
other. When you want to possess the other, then the problem arises:
The other may possess you. And if the other is more powerful,more
magnetic, naturally you will be a slave.
If you want to become the master of the other, then the fear arises
"I may be reduced to a slave." If you don't want to possess the other,
then the fear never arises that the other may possess you.
Love never possesses.
Love never possesses and love can never be possessed.
True love leads you into freedom. Freedom is the highest peak,the
ultimate value. And love is closest to freedom; the next step after love
is freedom. Love is not against freedom;love is a stepping-stone toward
freedom. That's what awareness will make clear to you:that love has to
be used as a stepping-stone for freedom.
If you love, you make the other free.And when you make the other
free, you are made free by the other. . .
