A meditation on love

This is from a book by Miguel Ruiz entitled Prayers: A Communion with our Creator:
Today, imagine all the love flowing from your heart to all the people who need your love. Join your heart with my heart, and together let’s offer our love to the world. By putting our hearts together and sending our love to all of humanity, the moment will come when their hearts will react to that love. They will express their love also, the same way that we are expressing our love.
I'm struck with the emphasis on sending love to those who need our love. They may not want it, they may not know they need it. Doesn't matter. We need to cultivate the willingness to give love to those who need it whether we particularly like the idea or not.
