Love is who You are

"The common expression is 'I love you.' But instead of 'I love you,' it would be better to say, 'I am love — I am the embodiment of pure love.' Remove the I and you, and you will find that there is only love. It is as if love is imprisoned between the I and you. Remove the I and you, for they are unreal; they are self-imposed walls that don't exist. The gulf between I and you is the ego. When the ego is removed the distance disappears and the I and you also disappear. They merge to become one — and that is love. You lend the I and you their reality. Withdraw your support and they will disappear. Then you will realize, not that 'I love you,' but that 'I am that all-embracing love.'"

The older we grow, the wiser we become... Love I am, she. We are all expressions of the Divine.

Maybe wisdom is seeing things the way they are and not wanting them to be any other way. Awareness helps us separate reality from the stories we build around it!
Oh! We can be such story-tellers! LOL!
