Two about love

We discussed love as a spiritual practice in ongoing class this week. Here's one passage we looked at:
Let us make a pledge that, if not all day or all night long, at least for a few moments every day, we will make an effort to experience love, love that is free from selfishness, free from desire, free from expectation, love that is complete freedom.

— Swami Chidvilasananda in Kindle My Heart

And here's another:

Let the good in me connect with the good in others, until all the world is transformed through the compelling power of love.

— Rebbe Nachman of Breslov in The Gentle Weapon
