22. Life is Love and Love is Life

Remember that Yoga is the work of the inner self on the
outer self. All that the outer does is merely in response to the inner.

The outer can help by keeping quiet and free from desire
and fear.

Even the little description of reality that is given is
through denials -- 'not this, not this', (neti, neti).

All positives belong to the inner self, as all absolutes --
to Reality.

It is not life that needs the body; it is the body that
needs life

Life is love and love is life.

What keeps the body together but love? What is desire, but
love of the self? What is fear but the urge to protect?

What is knowledge but the love of truth? The means & forms
may be wrong, but the motive behind is always love -- love of the me & the mine.

The me and the mine may be small, or may explode andembrace the universe, but love remains.
