What is the difference between respect and love?

Love does not ask anything in return.

I come across an amazing book by J. Krishnamurti… I wanted to share his thoughts. An understanding of livigness that is very rare to find and to see, yet something  that is  very much needed to transform every life into a special moment to remember…

‘You can look up “respect” and “love” in a dictionary and find the answer. Is that what you want to know? Do you want to know the superficial meaning of those words, or the significance behind them?

When a prominent man comes around, a minister or a governor, have you noticed how everybody salutes him?

You call that respect, don’t you? But such respect is phony, because behind there is fear, greed. You want something out of the poor devil, so you put a garland around his neck. That is not respect, it is merely the coin with which you buy and sell in the market. You don’t feel respect for your servant or the villager, but only for those from whom you hope to get something. That kind of respect is really fear; it is not respect at all, it has no meaning. But if you really have love in your heart, then to you the governor, the teacher, your servant and the villager are all the same; then you have respect, a feeling for them all, because love does not ask anything in return.

From the book: ‘Think on these Things’ by J. Krisnamurti

On the Chart of Human Evaluation by L. Ron Hubbard we can find that very true love at 4.0. A point were the individual has not only some awareness of others people others than himself, but has moved to a level of responsibility toward them…

Under the Affinity level at 4.0 L. Ron Hubbard writes: “Love-strong, outgoing.”

Very difficult to duplicate and apply from those who are trying desperately to survive as self.
