Love is a much higher value than freedom; or should I say: Love is the highest value. A human filled with love is truly free. True freedom is freedom from ego. This is possible only if there is pure, unconditional love.
A person who seeks freedom more than love is actually less free. The person has not realized that freedom, like any other value, is to be given and not to be sought. Those who are bound with others due to the love in their own heart are free. Others are bound with them because they experience the freedom to be themselves. “The freedom one experiences in a relationship binds him.”
