All that the mind knows is love

The following is an excerpt from a samvaad (dialogue) session with Acharya Prashant.

Question: Acharya Ji, How to understand the different states of mind?

What we are, is the mind always dwelling in fear and desire. Mind is always afraid of its death, as a deal for love to flower. But at the same time mind’s ultimate desire is — Love.
