From the Text “Transform Your Life”
“Many people experience problems because their love is mixed with attachment; for such people, the more their “love” increases, the more their desirous attachment grows. If their desires are not fulfilled, they become upset and angry. Real love can never be the cause of anger, it is the opposite of anger and can never cause problems ”.

Jan 6th, Jan 9th - Removing The Mind of Anger
