I will bathe all souls with my unselfish love. In the sea of my love, my family members, my countrymen, all nations, and all beings will swim. All creation, all the myriads of tiny living beings, will dance on the waves of my love.
When you love divinely, you understand that it is God whom you love in all your loved ones, that He is the sweetness of all loving human relationships. With this realization you love unselfishly; you see that the greatest joy and the greatest satisfaction lie not in receiving love but in giving it. Your whole consciousness changes as you try to love God in others, because it is in that constant giving of love that you receive it. When you do love genuinely, then love comes back to you. So do not concern yourself with whether or not anyone loves you, but open up your own heart and give love, asking nothing in return.
