Love and death
Public Talk 5 Ojai, California, USA
April 16, 1977
When there is fear, is there love?
Is attachment love?
What is the relationship of love to suffering?
The more intense the challenge, the greater the energy demanded to meet it. Sorrow is this challenge. If you respond to it by escaping from it, seeking comfort from it, then you are dissipating the energy that you need to meet the challenge.
A man who suffers does not know what love is.
Continuity is part of the degenerating process of man, whereas when there is an ending to continuity something new can take place.
One asks: what happens after death? We are asking quite a different question: what is before death, which is your life?
