You can’t love somebody intentionally. You can’t love anybody or anything just because you should, your neighbor, yourself. Love and happiness comes by itself when we’re in a good mood.

So, if I'm happy and love everybody, sometimes, when I am in a good mood, how do I change my mood? Well, we can’t change our mood, it changes by itself. There is nothing we can do about it. It is like going to bed at night. We can’t intentionally put ourselves to sleep, but we can make it comfortable for us, maybe read a little and then turn the lights off, and suddenly we’re gone without the faintest idea how it all happened. If you have to wake up early the next day, and you begin to think about how many hours of sleep you can catch if you fall asleep right now, you will certainly create a problem for yourself. The sleep will simply refuse to come. It is the same thing with love and happiness. Don’t think about it. Don't worry about it. If you're not too selfish and if you can be a little helpful to others, without expecting anything in return, pure love and happiness will come, at times, by itself.

Don't look down on a person just because he is wearing strange or awful clothes. In the same way, don’t put somebody off just because of he has strange or awful ideas. It is not a big deal really if he’s a right winger, a Catholic or a Hare Krishna follower. Many people simply don’t know what their ideas imply. It is the actions that is important. Judge people by their actions, not by their words. Some people can be wonderful to have a chat with, but terrible at home with their family.
