The Opposite of Love

The opposite of love is not hate.

It is fear.

And if you get hurt in love, which you simply will do, the big mistake is to armor your heart.

When you stop your heart from feeling love again, you stop doing the one thing in life worth doing.

Love is the only real reason to live.

So, live today; love today.

The opposite of love is fear-beautiful. I've never thought of it like that before.

Asalamu Alaykom UmmOmar,

Ya it's an interesting concept, isn't it? It kind of goes along with "Fear Allah," because if you fear anything else, it's like you don't LOVE Allah. You know?

Did you look at the link for the rest of the interview? It's powerful stuff!

Asalamu Alaykom Sadiyah,

yah, hate is almost the same thing as love. I think you can't really hate unless you also love. Indifference is the opposite. I fear indifference.
