Love becomes divine when personality is not emphasized – Upanishads

Consciousness alone is alive. Everything objective is dead and inert.
Our senses are created as outward-going. Therefore we see things in the outside. But one dhira (a bold man, or one who withdrew  his senses from objects), longing for deathlessness, turned his eyes (sense perceptions) inward and perceived the real ‘I’- principle.
Love becomes divine when personality is not emphasized.
It is just mind that is the cause of bondage, and of liberation also, in our human lives. In bondage, mind is tied to objects. But, in freedom, mind recalls that it is truly objectless. Upanishads
