These selected passages from Sri Aurobindo and the Mother give us practical guidance on how to handle the sources of disharmony in human relations in daily life. These sources include narrowmindedness, dislike and fault-finding in others.
The focus in this part is on nature of the human love and how it gets limited and distorted with impurities such as vital attractions, surface emotions, expectations and possessiveness. Human love can be taken as a practice ground to expand and purify oneself to receive the universal force of love.
The author highlights the words of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo to throw light on the origin and nature of parental love and love between family relations and friends. We also see how human love and relationships can never satisfy the deep thirst for love which can only be quenched by the divine love.
The author reflects on how sincerely persevering in one’s sādhanā becomes the key to allow the heart to experience a deeper gratitude and peace.
