In love you elevate an object to life. When you love an object, it becomes alive.
For children everything is personal.Children take each object and make it totally personal. Even a stone has a face, even the sun laughs. When you attach emotion to it, all of creation becomes personal. When you remove emotion, even people become objects. Violence is removing emotion. How can a person kill another human being? Violence only happens when someone does not see the other person as a human being: they see them as an object. But even a stone attracts reverence when it becomes personal.
