“ Unconscious love is centered on the OBJECT OF LOVE. Conscious love is CENTERED IN ONESELF, it is your lovingness. Unconscious love is always ADDRESSED To ONE PERSON; hence there is always jealousy — because the other person also knows that unconscious love is always centered on one person, that it cannot be shared. If you start loving somebody else, that means you have stopped loving the first person. That’s the jealousy, the continuous fear that your lover may start loving somebody else — as if love is a quantity.
Conscious love is a QUALITY, Not QUANTITY. It is more like friendliness — deeper, higher, with more fragrance, but similar to friendliness. You can be friendly to many people, there is no question of jealousy. It does not matter that you are friendly to five persons or ten persons or ten thousand persons; nobody will feel deprived because you love so many people and his share is going to be less and less. On the contrary, as you are able to love more people, your quality of love becomes mountainous. So whoever you love gets more love if your love is shared by many people. It dies if it is narrowed. It becomes livelier if it is spread over a vast area — the bigger the area, the deeper are its roots. Consciousness gives everything a transformation. Your love is no more addressed to anybody in particular. It does not mean that you stop loving. It simply means you become love, you are love, your very being is love, your breathing is love, your heartbeats are love. Awake you are love, asleep you are love. It is not a question of loving someone for certain reasons; it is love simply out of abundance — you have so much that you have to share it, you have to radiate it. And whoever receives it, you are grateful to the person. In unconscious love, you are just an emptiness — dark and dismal, hungry and thirsty. In unconscious love, you are a BEGGAR. You are begging for love, because love is nourishment. And this is hilarious: You are begging for love, the other person, whom you are in love with is also begging for love — two beggars holding their begging bowls before each other, and both begging bowls are empty. Conscious love makes you an EMPEROR. You don’t beg; you simply give. And you give because now you see that the more you give the more you have. So whoever accepts your love, you are grateful to the person. The WHOLE EARTH CAN BECOME FULL OF LOVE, AN OCEAN OF LOVE, But Only With CONSCIOUS PEOPLE. “
