Ponderance ...

Love has its limitations when it is directed towards limited beings, but love directed to God has no limitations.
                        Bowl of Saki, September 18, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

If someone limits his love to a single object, saying, 'I only love this and there is nothing else I need', surely he has not the right kind of love either. True love is limitless. Though it begins by being limited in such a way, yet it progresses and some day breaks out. ... To speak of the jealous God means that the unlimited force of love cannot allow its expression to be directed towards one limited object. That is why the love of God alone is the culmination of love, for love is as vast as God. Verily, love itself is God.
