Yogi Bhajan Lecture: The 3 Salient Features of Love

Excerpts from a lecture given on 7/13/89, Women’s Camp, Espanola, NM

Love without trust is a river without water. And all of you who try love, love, love, I am tired of listening of this love. You neither know love nor understand it. Love fundamentally is the most powerful ecstasy of consciousness, and even if a person goes blind, there is no question when you are in love.

People fall in love. You think things are going all right, you enjoy a romance, I agree. You enjoy a company, you enjoy a security, you enjoy a fleshiness, and you enjoy anything you want to enjoy, but don't call it love.

The three salient features of love are: Where there is love, there is no question. Where there is love, there is no pain. Where there is love, there is nothing impossible. If you do not have the capacity to face these three factors, don't call it love. Call it something else.

Love is something beyond you, it is an ecstasy, a consciousness, an intelligence, a human psyche. And when the human psyche moves in three and a half cycle electromagnetic mega psyche potential projection, the Universe moves with it. It is simple physics.

The unit of every country is the family and the strength of the country is based on the smiles of the children and songs of the adults.

And they say, “Love at first sight.” That is where it collects, light to light. Then there is no argument or rationalization; or he is rich or he is poor, or whether he will drive me in a car or he will drive me on a donkey; it doesn't matter to me. Earth becomes zero. Love has one capacity: Earth becomes zero, heavens become real and such people make history.
