WRITINGS BY THE MOTHER
© Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust
There is only one love, the Divine Love, eternal, universal, equal for everyone and everything.
It is man (the human being) who calls all kinds of feelings "love": all the desires, attractions, vital exchanges, sexual relations, attachments, even friendships, and many other things besides.
But all that is not even the shadow of love nor even its deformation.
These are all mental and vital, sentimental or sexual activities, and nothing more.
