Tanjavur painting of Lord Shiva,
the principle of unattached love.

When one is attached
to objects, or persons,
one calls them 'mine',
rather than seeing them
as oneself.

When there is possessiveness
and attachment
there is duality, division, separation.
Where there is love
there is no more duality or separation.

Actually there are no objects;
all is Subject (Self).
And there is only one person;
all is Shiva, Allah, Jahwe -
the singular Personification of all that exists.
