"The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love.
It may look paradoxical to you but it is not.
It is an existential truth:
Only those who are capable of being alone are capable of love,
Of sharing, of going into the deepest core of the person -
Without possessing the other,
Without becoming dependant on the other,
Without reducing the other to a thing,
And without becoming addicted to the other.
The allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now.
Their happiness can not be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other." - Osho 🏹
