No High or Low

In love there is no high or low,
No bad behavior, no good behavior.
No leader, no follower, no devotee;
Just indifference, tolerance and giving up.

Rumi, the 13th century poet and philosopher, puts thoughts in a simple order. Self-love is void of egotistical trappings. It is a path free of typical pain and suffering. That path only knows love and it vibrates in all our perceptions and actions.

There is no duality in love. No beliefs, perceptions or judgments. Love is not a leader or follower; it has no devotees or distinctive markings that separate it from unity. It is complete. There are no rules to follow, no games to play, no sins to absolve. Love is absolute in its formlessness and whole in its nothingness.
