As Gibran shared, "Love possess not, nor would it be possessed. For Love is sufficient unto Love." Still, we all fit " LOVE " into our own box. In his book LOVE, through poems and aphorisms, John explores what he perceives as LOVE in approaching, experiencing and receding from a mental state of equanimity. John shares, "I try to let go, as LOVE in its omnipresence, attempts to obliterate the box."
