Sounds like a line straight from the '60s, and it is, but there's a germ of truth here. Love in it's purity is object-free.
True love is an act of inclusion, and it must begin with self acceptance; for then the love one feels for another is not a search for wholeness, it's an extension of the love one feels for oneself, for the world, and for the universe at large.
Love without object is love without seclusion. Love that seeks to isolate, make special, control, or seclude is not love at all.
