To practice perfect love is to bring about the evolution of your soul. Where once you held a grudge, you forgive instead. Where once you were jealous of others, you’re now content with what you have. Where once there was disappointment, understanding takes its place. Where once you demanded your own way, you’re now willing to sacrifice for the sake of another. Where once you thought only of yourself, you’re now conscious of the needs of others. Where you once took things for granted, you’re now appreciative of what you have. Where once there was hatred and separation, there now is love and togetherness.
