I am that all-embracing love.’ --Amma

'I am that all-embracing love.’ --Amma

"The common expression is, ‘I love you.’ But, instead of ‘I love you,’ it would be better to say, ‘I am love—I am the embodiment of Pure Love.’

Remove the I and you, and you will find that there is only Love. It is as if Love is imprisoned between the I and you.

Remove the I and you, for they are unreal; they are self-imposed walls that don’t exist. The gulf between I and you is the ego.

When the ego is removed the distance disappears, the I and you also disappear. They merge to become one—and that is Love.

You will realize, not that ‘I love you,’ but that ‘I am that all-embracing love.’"

--Amma (Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi)
