Generally, love exists between parent and child, man and woman, husband and wife, etc. Love is expected to exist not only between people, but also between you and whatever you may believe in as God. However, here in "Ultimate LOVE", "God" is supposed to be the system for the existence of nature in the great space itself. It is desirable for world peace that, instead of such God as is conventionally assumed, you respect and believe in such God as defined herein.
It is a sincere wish of Chunu's master that your love for yourself lead to a love for others, your town, your nation, the whole world, and finally to the Ultimate Love toward the God who presides the earth on which you were born to live your life.

Thus, it is also important to teach them endurance. Consider the following proverbs: “What is learned in the cradle is carried to the grave."; “Out of temper, out of money.”
