Love is not greater; love is permanent. Emotions come and go like clouds in the sky whereas love is like the sky itself. Emotions can reflect love and that is often how we think of love: happiness, infatuation, pleasure, satisfaction, contentment, etc. But those are just shadows of love. They wear themselves out. But love is something beyond that, something that endures in all things…Love is scary and love is dangerous to the ego. Because when we feel love strongly, we don’t care if it burns us up. There is nothing you are not willing to change about yourself, nothing you are not willing to let go of, to allow that love to keep burning within you.
