A blunder in intellectual judgment is the failure to distinguish love from attachment.
Love is being in harmony with one and all. Realizing your identity with living beings.
What people claim as love is personal, preferential attachment. When love is polluted by selfishness it turns sour, becomes attachment. Attachment therefore is perversion of love. The modern world is bereft of love. Instead there is a holocaust of attachment everywhere.
The human intellect at present is so weak that it does not recognise the deadly nature of attachment. And reduces the beautiful face of love to an ugly caricature.
