True love is the sweet fruit that grows out of the fragrant flower of good deeds. Today, when any difficulty arises or when some trouble crops up, love turns into hatred. Whatever be the vicissitudes one may face, whatever be the personal sorrows and privations one may undergo, a person with true love should remain unaffected. Love rules without recourse to the sword. It binds without laws. Like the glow of the flame in a fire or the rays of the sun or the waves in the ocean, divine love is the basic quality of every true human being. True Love is practising pure and unselfish love towards all living beings, who are all embodiments of the Divine, with no expectation of reward! A genuine loving person will be free from dislike or hatred, and is friendly and compassionate towards all beings (Adweshta sarva bhutanam, maitrah, karuna evacha). Only those with this attitude are worthy of being called human beings!
