In a lecture, Ilchi Lee equates enlightenment and true love. One can only love this way when one is in touch with his or her true self. Only an enlightened soul can hope to get in touch with this true love:
Enlightenment is true love.
Without knowing your True Self, it is hard to know what true love is.
Although we have spoken of true love throughout history, loving without knowing your True Self cannot be true love.
Exploring the roots of this kind of love, you will eventually find betrayal and attachment.
The reason we must become enlightened is to recover the true love that lies insides our hearts.
