But however many women there are, even if there are 2.5 billion women, and if there is not one single man, what would happen? Could they feel, “Oh, my love!”? If we look at the melodies of songs these days, all of them are about ”my loves” or about loving someone, all of them are like that, but can the 2.5 billion women of humanity say, “Oh, my love,” about one man? That’s a lie, a lie.
The word love, even if you open your eyes, what do you open them to see? You don’t need your eyes. You don’t need to smell, and you don’t need your mouth.

He had eyes; he had ears; he had a nose; he had hands, and he had all of the five organs of sense. But however great he was, and even though he was the God who created heaven and earth, if he just laughs “Ha, ha, ha,” all alone, he is crazy. If without a companion I said, “Oh my beloved,” and laughed, “Ho, ho,” and danced around, I’d be crazy. It’s the same for God. Do you understand?
