A footnote

"In the Light of the mighty idea of the unity of existence, there is eliminated the problem of self-love, which some have made into the source of all sin, and others into the source of all morality.  There is only love for all things, which is in truth an enlightened, a nobler kind of self-love.  The distorted love that loves only the puny spark, seen in our myopic vision and hates the authentic love – this is a kind of blindness that is foolish as it is wicked."

Avraham Yitzchak Kook, ‘Sacred Lights’
