In this book the author shows that only those whose lives embody ?timeless love?, who know such love from living it as a continuous experience, should have the right to make themselves its witness.
Hatred is love'spolar opposite??the self-same force inverted??and anyone who cannot hate, while being aware that hatred is benighted folly shall never know the love that St. Paul, Jesus Christ'sdisciple knew or the love that Gautam Buddha showed as proved by the following incident. Legend has it that one day a raging elephant was let loose on the approaching Gautam Buddha'spath. But the Enlightened One, to everyone'samazement, taimed the angry animal so that it trembled and fell before him, ?conquered by the might of love the sage embodied and had sent against its wrath.?
By becoming a slave to worry, man is unable to accomplish anything due to anguish. As a result, the most divine of energies – love – lies dormant in man'sbeing because of his inability to employ its power. He says man may ?love wholeheartedly? all those he holds ?dear? and whom he would not want to lose in life on earth and proclaim a universal ?love of all humanity?, all he shows is possession of all he loves ?together with the pleasure granted by such ?having?, even if they merely were possessions gained through seeing, hearing, in the belief that the person belongs to him.
