In below paragraph, I don't understand "We bind ourselves to another, not through fusion, but through contract, which is called love." Can anyone explain? Or your agree with it? Thanks. 😆 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“ What we call our love is a thing of the mind. Look at yourselves, and you will see that what I am saying is obviously true; otherwise, our lives, our relationships, would be entirely different, we would have a new society. We bind ourselves to another, not through fusion, but through contract, which is called love. Love does not fuse, adjust—it is neither personal nor impersonal, it is a state of being. The man who desires to fuse with something greater, to unite himself with another, is avoiding misery, confusion; but the mind is still in separation, which is disintegration. Love knows neither fusion nor diffusion, it is nether personal nor impersonal, it is a state of being which the mind can not find; it can describe it, give it a term, a name, but the word, the description, is not love. It is only when the mind is quiet that it shall know love, and that state of quietness is not a thing to be cultivated.” --- The Book of Life.

This is quoted from the book of Osho, who is an Indian Master that I love very much. 

"We bind ourselves to another, not through fusion, but through contract, which is called love." —— He means we bind ourselves with love through contracts, which is marriage. In this way, the real "Love" cannot survive and being the true love.

I think here the contract means marriage. Marriage won't maintain love. 😛

Thanks. Your answer is the same with my guess. I just wonder why his comment is no difference with the public. 😀
