From Eknath Easwaran

“When mystics use the word love, they use it very carefully -- in
the deeply spiritual sense, where to love is to know; to love is
to act. If you really love, from the depths of your consciousness,
that love gives you a native wisdom. You perceive the needs of
others intuitively and clearly, with detachment from any personal
desires; and you know how to act creatively to meet those needs,
dexterously surmounting any obstacle that comes in the way.
Such is the immense, driving power of love.”

commentary to follow above...

note that this is precisely what i think should inform sociology and sociological practice
