vertical line Posted on Dec.23.2007 @ 11:31AM EDT by chontri

It is like the light and warmth from the sun that shine and warm beings and things on the earth.  Just giving without expecting any return.

It is like the air in space around the earth that beings and things breath or absorb to live.  Just giving without expecting any return.

It is like water on the earth or rain falling from sky that beings and things drink or absorb to live.  Just giving without expecting any return.

It is like nutriments from the earth that beings and things eat or absorb to live.  Just giving without expecting any return.

Love is having a Compassionate Heart ONature To Remedy Ills

 that afflict  humanity.

Love Offers Void Emptiness

as causes and condtions have no nature

Their very substance is emptiness

Cultivate goodwill towards all beings

Radiating Metta To All

Merry Christmas

vertical line Love can't be chosen, possessed or cultivated, to believe love can be possessed is to make it one with hate. However, possessed by love, the world and all its hate can't stop you.
