If you could look behind the thin veil
of what you call a ‘person’,
if you could truly look into the heart
of any or everyone,
you could not fail to love them.
Only our false projections from the mind
try to justify why it is not wise
to love a stranger, why it is risky.
The ego-mind says others
don’t deserve to be loved.
While hatred and suspicion divides,
Love brings all things together
in harmony and joy.
