There is no opposite of love. People think that hate is the opposite of love, when what it really is, is the balance of love for oneself and love for others thrown off kilter.

I know fear is used alot. But fear is a natural response to danger and is not really your enemy.

The two opposing forces are the Love of Power and the Power of Love.

I agree.

You can fear a person and hate the person.
You can be fearless against the person and still hate the person.

So fear is not the opposite in my way of defining fear.

To me it is "ego parasitic servitude to one/few by all" vs "service to all by all". One path is ego demonic in nature, one path is divine in nature.

But fear is a natural response to danger and is not really your enemy. - See more at:

Not the fear I and others might be speaking of. But I can only speak for myself and give my interpretation of what opposes what.

You either understand on a deeper level than words can express or you look at fear as a response as you are saying.

I will give it anyway,

You use the term duality a fair bit Unity, why do you think people who believe fear opposes love would see fear as an enemy?

Are you implying that fear represents the enemy or that is what you should feel towards an enemy as opposed to love representing your friends and allies and love is what you should feel towards an ally?

Duality, life and death.

We want to live as opposed to wanting to die, most of us anyway,

As intelligent creatures that strive to live and survive wouldn't it be a better way to survive and live if you loved your enemy and they loved you.

to experience fear so as to understand it as an opposing force to love we should fear those closest to our hearts as they hold a great power over us and unintentionally or intentionally can do great damage.

this wont make our enemy our friend and our friend the enemy unless duality needs to keep going in our conscious minds and we switch one side with another as those in power want us to with everything so as to keep us divided, in fact if oneness was ever to exist as so many like to entertain then the solution is to love your enemy. You do not need to fear your friends to gain this oneness, unless you need to understand how fear opposes love then yes try fearing those closest to you but don't let the fear overwhelm and manipulate what your initial purpose was to experience such.

The opposite of love would me IMO :

But yet..
What one person desires most,seeks the other to destroy.

I say the opposite of Love is not Hate but inaction. Love is not a feeling but an expression of doing for others.

In the romantic feeling sense, I will never Love my wife. That's childish foolishness to me. I show her how much I love her by my actions.

Love is caring more about someone else than you do about yourself. The opposite of that would be caring more about yourself than you do about others. Selfishness, Self Indulgence is the opposite of love. When satisfying your own needs trumps the needs of anyone or anything in your world.
