Love is like a bar of soap

This is something I found on the official Michael Jackson site:

Love is a funny thing to describe. It’s so easy to feel and yet so slippery to talk about. It’s like a bar of soap in the bathtub – you have it in your hand until you hold on too tight.

Some people spend their lives looking for love outside themselves. They think they have to grasp it in order to have it. But love slips away like the wet bar of soap.

Holding on to love is not wrong, but you need to learn to hold it lightly, caressingly. Let it fly when it wants. When it’s allowed to be free, love is what makes life alive, joyful, and new. It’s the juice and enemy that motivates my music, my dancing, everything. As long as love is in your  heart, it’s everywhere.

-Michael Jackson

  1. how cool! I haven’t seen this MJ quote before, but when I was first learning to meditate, a teacher used that analogy for developing concentration in meditation: holding your object of meditation like a bar of soap… gently and not grasping too tightly ;)
