Most people have such a limited understanding of love that the moment they fall in love they forget the whole world- nothing else exists for them. They are not yet used to experiencing love in a greater way. They impoverish it, mutilate it. It is no longer divine love, the love that pours forth, shaking the thirst of all creatures.
True love is a love that embraces all creatures without limiting itself, without putting down roots with just one. This why, from now on, men and women need broader concepts -so they can be less jealous and possessive. A husband should be glad to see his wife open her heart to the whole world, and the wife should also be happy that her husband has such a big heart. It will not stop them remaining faithful to one another. When two truly evolved beings marry, they have already allowed each other this mutual freedom beforehand. Each one is delighted to be able to love all beings in all purity. The wife understands her husband, the husband his wife, and they both walk together toward heaven, for they live the true, boundless life.
