Only through renouncing passionate egoistic attachment, identification, desire of craving and aversion, and expectation, one can truly love and be kind to oneself and others, and perform selfless actions that would be benefiting the world of diversity without any selfish possessiveness or desire.
The minds that know this, they are not being determined, disturbed, exhausted, frustrated, disappointed, angered or hurt by all kinds of unpleasant and disagreeable names and forms, ignorant actions and reactions, or the consequences of ignorant actions and reactions in the world of ignorance and egoism, while performing actions that benefit the well-being of all kinds of diversities in the world without discrimination or expectation.
The minds that have good intention and aspiration, to be performing actions that would benefit the world as well as to stop others from performing actions that would harm the world, but somehow, the minds are not, or don't know how to be free from attachment, identification, desire of craving and aversion, and expectation, and thus, they are being determined, disturbed, exhausted, frustrated, disappointed, angered and hurt by all kinds of unpleasant and disagreeable names and forms, ignorant actions and reactions, or the consequences of ignorant actions and reactions in the world of ignorance and egoism.
It's useless to be confronting or fighting against ignorance. By being angry and hating towards the ignorance in the minds and the ignorant thinking and behaviors in the world, doesn't remove the ignorance in the minds, and doesn't stop or reduce the presence of ignorant thinking and behaviors in the world. It only disappoints and hurts oneself even deeper.
Letting go, without possessiveness, without desire, without identification, without expectation, without the urge to control, is the true love, is the real loving kindness, is the unconditional love, is compassion, towards all and everything in this world, regardless of whether it's within a family, or a personal relationship, or love relationships, or friendships, or particular community and global community.
Look into the historical events in the world, and the human being's affairs in individual, family, love relationship, friendship and community, as well as everything that is happening now in one's life and in the surrounding environment. All kinds of man made sufferings deriving from ignorant thinking, actions and reactions, are all relating to survival instinct, possessiveness, desire/aspiration/greed, identification, expectation and the urge to control the world, the family, the children, the relationships, the friendships, the particular community or global community to be and not to be in certain way according to one's particular thinking, belief, values, desires and aspirations.
Everyone are not just trying to paint the world to be in their own particular favorite colours, but, also dislike, disagree with, or be offended, and don't allow all the others to have their own particular favorite colours that are different from their own favorite colours.
To love the world, is not by making or changing the world to become something that is likable, agreeable and desirable to one's desire or vision. It's by letting go.
Similarly, to love someone or everyone, is not by possessing, controlling or expecting them to be and not to be in certain way, but it's letting go. Let everyone being what they are, as they are.
Yoga teachers can only show the way by delivering the teachings, that's all.
Similarly, parents or leaders that really want the family, the community or the world to have peace and harmony, can only show the way by guiding their children or communities towards the importance of respect and harmony among all kinds of diversities, with self-control of 'non-harming' oneself and others.
There are those who don't really want to have peace and harmony in themselves or in others, but only interested in gratifying one's selfish and limitless desires and ambitions, while generating unrest and disharmony in themselves and in others, constantly be offended by the things that they dislike, disagree with and don't desire, who enjoy or indulge in violent and hurtful behavior, as well as influencing their children or communities to also think, believe and behave like them, it's like a psycho training a group of psychos surrounding oneself. Let it be. One can't reason with a psycho, or someone who is under the influence of intoxication, but can only do one's best to stay away from one.
Just like the sun, the water, the wind, the earth and the space, they don't interfere with the law of nature, of cause and effect, and they have no intention to be something good or bad, to give or take, but only being what they are.
Inquire the truth of everything.
