vertical line  " I was shown that pure love was serving God and others without any self-centered motives. Even if one was motivated to perform a good deed in order to feel good about one’s own self or to attain future treasures in heaven, this would be considered to be a tainted act; totally unacceptable to God. I was shown that God only accepts selfless acts of love. God is Love. Love only recognizes love."

Perhaps human trying to understand their emotion / experience and had created knowledge ....we seems to know ourselves , defined our emotion and  with emotion we define emotion , with knowledge we created more knowledge ...we are actually washing our clothes in muddy water trying our best to clean it .......we confused with our own knowledge , we had became knowledge .......we fill in our original condition with knowledge .......we lost in our own words ....and some even trying to master ownselves by creating more emotions ............thats human culture .

buddhism concept had explained to me that perhaps all emotions that I have is SAME and EQUAL ...., love = hate =desire=greed=ego=fear=etc........all is the cause of my existence .......and joy / sorrow /happiness / suffering is reflection of mind ...mind is collective emotion ...emotions is pollutant in nothingness .......

I really hope someone here could challenge my understanding as I will learn more from that .....

Perhaps Buddhism is a process discovering / understanding / realizing our desire to define things , our desire to find the answer to fulfil our needs , our emotion on the answer , our attachment on who we are .......perhaps Buddhism will lead us to discover ourselves not others , our world as there is no other world , our existence etc .........
