Anything else is not love


Nurturing your children, you become impartial

I used to tell my children when they seemed to need reassurance that I did not love one more than the other but that I expressed my love differently to each because each was unique.

It is sometimes easy to fall into the trap that it is possible to love someone more than another.  How can that be?  Love is beyond the thinking mind’s notions of bias, partiality, merit and demerit.  It’s simply not possible to love more or love less.  These vagaries have nothing to do with love.

To love is to be in the field of freedom, free from all conditionality, even the subtlest.  Anything else is not love.
