Everything in Our World Demands Two-Way Love

Everything in our world demands two-way love.  Everything’s conditional.  If you love me, only then will I love you.  If you give to me, only then will I give to you.  If you serve me, only then will I serve you.  This conditionality plagues us at every turn and keeps us enslaved to fear, reservation and insecurity.  Owing and deserving seem to be written into the fabric of human nature and civilization.
