It is because of the pain of love,
millions of people live a loveless life.
They too suffer, and their suffering is futile.
To suffer in love is not to suffer in vain.
To suffer in love is creative
it takes you to higher levels of consciousness. To suffer without love is utterly a waste it leads you nowhere,
it keeps you moving in the same vicious circle.
The man who is without
love is narcissistic,
he is closed.
He knows only himself. And how much can he know himself if he has not known the other,
because only the other can function as a mirror?
You will never know yourself without
knowing the other. Love is very fundamental for self-knowledge too.The person who has not known the other in deep love, in intense passion, in utter ecstasy,
Will not be able to know who he is,
because he will not have the mirror to see his own reflection. OSHO
