Re: Relief realizing that love comes from one's own heart (Ven Sujiva)
- Of course this doesn't refer to the original love from mother and father but to unrequited romantic love. See my popular thread:

One such person, after having meditated, realized that it comes from one's heart. It is part of the mental properties and it can be cultivated. It gave him much relief and joy. When one can see and develop this, it will not be difficult to have love. To any being who comes within your mind field, there will be true and lasting love. Sure, you may say it is one-sided love, but then in many cases, it is a matter of time that it will be responded to, even if we do not ask for it."
