Instinct Isn’t Calculated on Debts

The woman, upon hearing the news
that her daughter had died suddenly,
unexpectedly, slumped to the floor
and wept inconsolably, “Why, why,
why? I should have been the one to
die!” The mother wasn’t willing to
put herself in her daughter’s place
because the daughter’s life was some-
how errant and the mother needed to
do that for her. She would have done
it out of utter, unconditional love.
A mother’s love, a father’s love –
they don’t teach you that in school.
It is instinctual. The instinct of
love, the origin of love, God’s love.
