Be the love within us.

Zen drawing by Mike Heseltine

I started the drawing by exploring quotes and writings about love. I read Eckhart Tolle and other Zen Buddhist quotes, which are always inspiring. Thich Nhat Hanh mentions "...look deep inside yourself for the beauty and love you’ve been seeking" which is very inspiring. I do believe that love only exists within us and when we love someone, it is a reflection of the love inside us. However, ultimately Love is very simple and uncomplicated. Words and thoughts bring the complications and make love become something to define or explain. I think it is beyond all these things, and just part of us. We all have love within us, we just sometimes struggle to give it.
