People don’t really love us for what we accomplish. People actually love us for our character and goodness.
To the degree our actions are selfish, it cannot satisfy the heart. A selfless act is that in which we are truly giving ourselves for the object of our love.
In the heart that harbors the weed of selfish greed, the flower of love cannot survive.
Love is a state of complete, uninhibited, unconditional giving away of every aspect of our very existence for the pleasure of the object of our love, both within and without.
When there is love in our heart, then only love will be manifested outside.
Love means reciprocation. Therefore, you can’t love buildings or cars or money because there is no reciprocation.
