What is love?

No amount of rites, rituals, ceremonies, worship, meditation, penance and remembrance can produce love in themselves. None of these are necessarily a sign of love.

On the contrary, those who sigh loudly and weep and wail have yet experience love. Love sets on fire the one who finds it. At the same time it seals his lips so that no smoke comes out.

Love is meant to be experienced and not disclosed. What is displayed is not love. Love is a secret which meant to remain a secret for the one who receives and keeps it.
