Learning to love

One of the most important things that we came into this world to learn is to really open ourselves to love. I’m not talking here about loving one another as friends, but of learning to love humanity. 
We are here to understand that love is not an energy that says, “I love you, my child, because I benefit from you; because everything you do in this world is mine; because through you, I can expand myself.”  

Nor is love an energy that says, “I love you, my husband, because you give me so many things. I love you, my friend, because you like me; because you are part of my same social status; because you like the things that I do; because you appreciate who I am.” 

These sentiments (and their agendas) are not a part of the energy of love that we have been put here to generate and share. Love does not discriminate. Love does not calculate. Rather, love is the energy that connects us all. It is the energy that gives us the ability to have care for all people.
