True love can be regarded as a triangle.
The first angle is, love knows no bargain.
So when a man is praying to God,
"give me this, and give me that," it is not love.
How can it be?
"I give you my little prayer,
and you give me something in return";
that is mere shopkeeping.
The second angle is, love knows no fear.
So long as God is regarded as a rewarder
or a punisher there can be no love for him.
The third angle, the apex, is, love is
always the highest ideal.
When we have reached the point
where we can worship the ideal as the ideal,
all arguments and doubts have vanished forever.
The ideal can never escape,
because it is part of our own nature.
