Series 2 - Lesson 12 - Annotation 13
Why is it unwise to love worldly things?
13. Worldly things are transient and pass away, even those things that we usually consider to be the most permanent. Love is ceaseless attraction, and it has the quality of concentrating on its object. When the object is transient and passes away, there is a sense of loss and a break in the flow of love through us, a damming up of the stream of love. We bind ourselves, attach to us worldly things, and by so doing we give them our time and attention and forget the spiritual ideas which are eternal.
