When the energy of love is strong in us, we can send it to beings in all directions.
But we must not think that love meditation is only an act of imagination--we imagine our love as being like waves of sound or light, or like a pure, white cloud that forms slowly and gradually spreads out to envelope the whole world. A true cloud produces rain. Sound and light penetrate everywhere, and our love must do the same.
We have to observe whether our mind of love is present in our actual contact with others. Practicing love meditation in the sitting position is only the beginning.
