Gerald Jampolsky Love Quotes and Sayings
2. Love is the total absence of fear. Love asks no questions. Its natural state is one of extension and expansion, not comparison and measurement.
3. Teach only love, for that is what you are.
4. When we think we have been hurt by someone in the past, we build up defenses to protect ourselves from being hurt in the future. So the fearful past causes a fearful future and the past and future become one. We cannot love when we feel fear … When we release the fearful past and forgive everyone, we will experience total love and oneness with all.
