Question: Why does God love me?Sri Chinmoy: God loves you because He has not yet learned how to hate Himself. God knows how to love Himself; therefore, He can love you and He can love everyone. But the day He starts hating Himself, He will start hating you and everyone. He has to learn how to hate Himself first. Just because He loves Himself all the time, He can love you, He can love His entire creation.
