R' Shimon Schwab, Internalizing Eternity, 26:57
"Our slogan must be to return to the authentic ahavas Hashem of our forefathers. For ahava is a sensation felt inside, deeply inside. Ahava is our most intimate emotion and love is never one-sided. As it says, ani li l'dodi and l'dodi li. Once we realize that the Ribbono Shel Olam is loving us as a nation ha-bocheir b'amo yisrael b'ahava and the Ribbono Shel Olam is loving each and everyone of us as individuals, ahavas Hashem, or love for Him, can become a passion, the most intimate totally personal relationship between the Borei Olam and myself."
