Love is not special. a course in miracles
This is contrary to what one might expect. Love can be special, is special, we say. What this quote is saying is that when we love someone more than anyone else we’re making exceptions that are ego-based. The source of love is God and God will not and cannot love one part of his creation more than another. Love cannot make exceptions and therefore ‘is not special’. Our love, if we are to truly become the love that we already are, must be like God’s for her creation.
