Dialogue 12 - San Diego, California,USA - 25 February 1974
Q: What is love?
Is love pleasure, the expression of desire? Is love the fulfilment of sexual appetite?
Is love the pursuit of a desired end? Is love a thing that can be cultivated?
Love has been identified with sex which means, basically, with pleasure. Why have we made sex such an enormous, fantastic, romantic, sentimental affair? What is the relationship of joy, enjoyment and pleasure to love?
To come upon this thing called love you must understand the place of pleasure. A mind that has been trained, sustained in this rotten social conditioning must first free itself before it can talk about love.
