More on Love and Family Life
“When we love, we can see the Self of all in the faces of those we love. We can remove the limitations of our own egotism. Those who accept this challenge can achieve levels of wisdom, serenity, and love as a result of their learning in the family. The path of spirituality develops as you learn to love and continually expand that capacity to love from your spouse and family to your community, to your nation, and eventually the entire world.”
