You don't need a reason to love

Heard this on a live-cast of the ‘Art of Living’ mega meet in Bangalore. An overseas visitor, in his all too brief, but meaningful, address had this to say:
My name is Hashim, but it doesn’t matter any more; I’m from Saudi Arabia, and it doesn’t matter any more.
Why am I here? And my answer to it is in two parts. The first part is: “I don’t know”. The second, and more significant, part of the answer is: “I don’t want to know”.
All I know is, you don’t need a reason to be here; to love one another.
