Staying with theme of “Love”. Luang Por explores “Love” in the context of the Brahma-viharas. Or the 4 divine abidings.
Loving Kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity.
That when love arises spontaneously from the heart, rather than a mind based thought. Then there is no effort required. It just is, the way it is.
He cites the line from the Metta sutta:
“Just as a mother protects her child her only child, so with a boundless heart should one cherish all living beings”. _ A mother does not have to wake up each morning and put forth effort to do this. it just “is”.
– Exploring that quality of inherent love.
