Those who have not a loving disposition, belong wholly to themselves. The
tender hearted belong to other even in their bones. The love in their hearts makes them a
possession of the living world outside of them. The enlightened hold that the saving joy
of the soul when burdened with the body is the experience of human affection.
Human affection is possible only if the soul is clothed in fresh and
blood, and it is worth while for the sake of the experience of such affection to suffer
the miseries of life on earth. The soul would like to be born in flesh and blood for the
sake of enjoying this incident of life on earth.
