Why Do People Fall Out of Love?

“The important thing is that you create a little distance between yourself and your own personality, then you will see that you will even enjoy yourself. And once you enjoy this person, you will see everyone is wonderful. You can enjoy everyone because now you see people for who they are, not having some framework into which they must fit into.”

Your experience of love is that you feel a certain sweetness of emotion within yourself. We do not know who stimulates this in you, but essentially it happens within you.

But why are you using a key when there is no lock, no door, no barrier of any kind? It is just that you are a push-start machine.
