Unconditional love

"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”
-- Thomas Merton

Hi, I recently viewed a copy of Desadarda on your site. It was definetely was wriiten by Max Mueller in the early 1930's in Ohio. He is a German immigant at the time and later became a lawyer. I know this from an article written in Guidepost Mag. in the 80's.I read it in 1984 and have had a copy since then. It is interesting to read it today given our economic situation. Feel free to contact me at for more info. Among other things..writing a children's book entitled "God cuddle with Me tonight because..."...I was having a hard time and asked him to do the same. Hate to admit it I'm 57 and suppose guys aren't suppose to have that child-like concept...It's nice...George PS I can write just can't spell...Hope your father is still alive and you get to say "Thanks for everything Dad"
