What is True Love?

Questioner : Amma, what is true love?

Amma: True love is the state of complete fearlessness. Fear is part and parcel of the mind. Therefore, fear and genuine love cannot go together. As the depth of love increases, the intensity of fear slowly decreases.

Fear can exist only when you are identified with the body and mind. Transcending the weakness of the mind and living in love is Godliness. The more love you have, the more divinity is expressed within you. The less love you have, the more fear you have and the more you move away from the center of life. Fearlessness, indeed, is one of the greatest qualities of a true lover.
