To Love Is to Renounce Matter

To truly love someone, we must understand him in a human sense and in an immortal sense. If we understand the human being, we are able to see our loved one's needs. We are able to devote ourselves unselfishly to the meeting of those needs. This blesses him; but it also blesses us.

Understanding our loved one in an immortal sense establishes our oneness, or unity, with divine Love and removes a sense of limitation from the human relationship. It opens the way to express love when, from a human standpoint, the way may have seemed blocked. It also establishes the relationship as one which grows and grows eternally in the goodness and joy that true love always brings. In the immortal sense a right relationship never ends.
