The Self Can Only Love

… true love for the self arises from something that is greater than the self…
 To look within for the actual source of love leads to the discovery of the Self. Like the sun, the Self is ever present, unconditional, and not subject to thought, opinion, or attitude. The Self can only love because that is its essence. The love of the Self is not earned, deserved, or subject to limitation.
 … Love is beyond duality; it does not need a subject or an object. It is a quality of Reality that is independent of circumstances.
