These are states, and states must ever change , but the nature of the atman is bliss, peace, unchanging. We have not to get it, we have it, only wash away the dross and see it.

Look at the weaknesses of others with compassion, not accusation. It's not what they're not doing or should be doing that's the issue.

I love you for what you are, but I love you yet more for what you are going to be. I love you not so much for your realities as for your ideals.

I am on the way with you, and therefore I love you.
