Question: How can we tell if our love is human love or pure spiritual love?Sri Chinmoy: You can easily tell. In human love, there is a conscious demand, or at least an unconscious expectation from the love you offer to others. When your love is pure or spiritual, there is no demand, no expectation. There is only the sweetest feeling of spontaneous oneness with the human being or beings concerned. We have to use love not to bind or possess the world, but to free and widen our own consciousness and the consciousness of the world.
