God is the source of all love; love the world as the vesture of God, no more, no less. Through love, you can merge in the ocean of love. Love cures pettiness, hate and grief. Love loosens bonds; it saves man from the torment of birth and death. Seen through the eyes of Love, all beings are beautiful, all deeds are dedicated, and all thoughts are innocent. You are all caskets of divine Love; share it, spread it. Express that Love in acts of service, words of sympathy, and thoughts of compassion. Just as when you wake up from sleep you know that the dream which you had was a matter of minutes though the chain of events dreamt spanned many years, this life will appear a transient affair when you awake into jnana after this brief 'dream of life’. Hence be always full of joy so that when death calls, you can quit with a light laugh, and not whimper in grief. (Divine Discourse, July 7, 1968)
