Fundamental to the discipline of
love is letting go. You are practicing attachment and using
it as an excuse to immunize yourself. The discipline of love
requires letting people go. I do not mean letting them
disappear. I mean giving them their life, giving them your
feeling rather than withholding it, allowing them to grow,
supporting their growth, supporting their free process of
life.

You are not practicing the
discipline of love. You are indulging in your own egoic
“self-possession” and fear and reluctance and resistance,
and you are immunizing yourself. What people usually call
love is attachment, whereas real love is a great discipline
and it requires great self-understanding, great
self-discipline.
