Where there is understanding, there is love…….

Where there is understanding, there is love. When we understand the suffering of someone, we are motivated to help, and the energies of love and compassion are released. Whatever we do in this spirit will be for the happiness and liberation of the person we love. But, sometimes we destroy the person we love. We have to practice in a way that whatever we do for others will only make them happy. The willingness to love is not enough. When people do not understand each other, it is impossible for them to love each other.
