“No one is a stranger to me”

As a rule an introduction is required between people who do not know one another. Such introduction is not felt to be necessary when there is a give and take of love between persons, for hearts need no introduction.

An affinity can be felt between strangers, a feeling of having known one another before. This feeling is because of their connections in previous lives.

No one requires an introduction to me, for no one is a stranger to me. However, I am a stranger to most, and those coming and remaining in my presence do not do so without introduction.

As a matter of fact, they have come with many introductions — for many times in previous lives have they been introduced to me and have gone away and forgotten me and met me again. All these introductions are their introduction to me this time.
