3. The songs of love

What makes an animal an animal?
    Animal love.

What makes a man a man?
    Human love.

What makes God God?
    Divine love.

Animal love is Eternity’s destruction.
Human love is Infinity’s suspicion.
Divine love is Immortality’s Perfection.
Sri Chinmoy, The Golden Boat, part 1, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1974
