"Devotion is a means as well as its true end when it grows into a full treasure. When devotion becomes a treasure, you will need nothing more for inner fullness or affluence. As devotion grows, it will begin to free you of all desire, hatred and fear. It will relieve poverty, either by making you amply resourceful or by taking away from you the very feeling of poverty. Devotion also will remove your weakness, generating untold strength and confidence."

The first emotional enrichment you should have is fondness. Have love for people, including those you disagree with. Again, it is not enough to have love alone. Express it with concern. Love with a proper concern becomes sympathy. Further, in pursuit of love and sympathy, you must be able to sacrifice willingly and lovingly. Others should feel and know that you are fond of them. Only then individual saadhana begets the societal dimension to become collective saadhana as well.
