Please don’t bind another with your love.
Because you make the other fellow also dissipate energy along with you.

Then what should be my relation with others?
Toward all around you, just be friendly.
In friendship, I love you, but you are not tied to my will.
You have every freedom to do what you like.

Lovers always want to force the beloved to do whatever they want.
That is the quality of a possessive lover.
If it is friendship, each has all the freedom to do what he likes.
You still love like a friend.
There is no bondage.
It is pure love.

Cultivate relationships that allow free thought and action.
At all times, send out love to all, kindness to all, blessings to all.
Soon you will find all, including your enemies showering you with love.
