To understand Love, consider a triangle ABC. A is the vertex, and BC the base.
There are an infinite number of points on base BC.
A represents the individuality-the one, common, impersonal individuality.
All points on BC represent persons i.e. personal, differentiated minds.
Love is the rising of the base BC towards the peak A. It is a sublimation, a climb, a refinement. As ascent from the personal conditioned mind to clean individuality.
As BC rises towards A, two events happen:
1. All points on BC come closer to A. This means that in love the personal mind comes closer to the source, individuality.
2. All points on BC come closer to each other as well, and finally becomes one. This means that in Love, the various personal minds reduce their distance and get closer to each other.
Remember, these points are not aiming to come closer to each other. Rather, their movement is towards A. However, incidentally, as an inevitable by-product of their parallel rise towards A, they come closer to each other as well.
The climax of Love-points 1 and 2 taken together-is that all points on BC merge with A, and hence with each other.
