“Be filled with love…let it overflow.

You are a fountainhead of love…do nothing to restrain this, to hold it back. Do not try and parcel out your love.

Can you contain the air?…the oceans? Why would you want to try?

So let it be with your love—at all times, under all circumstances, love with the fullness of your being, because that’s who you are in the essence of your being, a creature of love. You are happiest when you are the most loving because at those moments you give expression to your being…Express yourself more fully!”
