"Love is never enough. There are mysteries in existence which don't have any limitation. Love is the closest experience to understanding all those mysteries – because as far as the mind is concerned, it imposes..."

Osho continues:
"Anything that can be limited by the mind becomes an object. Love is not an object. You cannot put it on the scientist's table to dissect it, to find out what basic elements it is made of.

"Because the scientist cannot make love objective, there are only two possibilities for him. If he is authentic and sincere, he will say, 'I do not know love,' because his way of knowing is only objective and love cannot be reduced to an object. But if he is not a sincere scientific mind but a fanatic, then rather than accepting his own ignorance he will deny the existence of love itself. He will say it is all imagination, it is all emotion, it is all sentimentality; it is not even worth considering.

"There is not even a single treatise on love written by any scientist. But that is his general attitude about love, about life, about consciousness – anything that he cannot hold in his hand, he simply denies its very existence. You cannot ask a scientist, 'Does beauty exist? Is there something like blissfulness? Is there a possibility of an inner ecstasy?' His answer is going to be consistently 'No.' Basically, he denies the inner world of man.

"And the most hilarious part is that scientists fall in love, scientists feel hurt if insulted. If there is nobody inside, what does it matter whether somebody insults you, abuses you? And if love is not existential, then no scientist should dare to fall in love. But the scientist is not just a one-dimensional being; science is not his whole life, and cannot be.

"Life contains many dimensions. The most important is the fact, the interiority, of man. And the interiority of man is as infinite as the exterior universe.

"Love is part of the interiority of man; it has no limits. But there are misunderstandings which have to be clarified.

"Your question is, 'Can you talk about the art of nourishing oneself with love?' There is no art because there is no need of any effort. Love is the nourishment. But humanity has been so confused by its leaders that one does not know the most inner realms of one's own being."
