Love propels us beyond the circle of ego, and puts the welfare of others ahead of — or at least alongside — our own. 

Love spills over, beyond our ego, towards our family, our neighbors, our friends. But it must not stop there. Widen the circle of love.

Love puts the welfare of many families ahead of one’s own families, but it must not stop there. Widen the circle of love.

Love can bring together the many people living inside an imagined boundary, but it must not stop there. Widen the circle of love.

If instead of being projected along a national border, it projects towards embrace of a whole religious community, that, too, is a move towards the global and the universal. But it must not stop there. Widen the circle of love.
