Hi Friends,

A simple Article about Love - By Swami Vivekananda

I once had a friend who grew to be very close to me. Once when we were

sitting at the edge of a swimming pool, she filled the palm of her hand

with some water and held it before me, and said this:

"You see this water carefully contained on my hand? It symbolizes


This was how I saw it: As long as you keep your hand caringly open and

allow it to remain there, it will always be there. However, if you

attempt to close your fingers round it and try to posses it, it will

spill through the first cracks it finds.

This is the greatest mistake that people do when they meet love...they

try to posses it, they demand, they expect... and just like the water

spilling out of your hand, love will retrieve from you .

For love is meant to be free, you cannot change its nature. If there


people you love, allow them to be free beings.

Give and don't expect.

Advise, but don't order.

Ask, but never demand.

It might sound simple, but it is a lesson that may take a lifetime to

truly practice. It is the secret to true love. To truly practice it,


must sincerely feel no expectations from those who you love, and yet an

unconditional caring."

Passing thought... Life is not measured by the number of breaths we

take; but by the moments that take our breath away.....

Life is beautiful!!! Live it!!!

Simple yet so powerfully pertinent to those who want to actualise life and enjoy every bit of it. I am reminded of Yudhisthra who found it difficult to learn a lesson because he was finding it difficult to inculcate it in his psyche before he could admit that he had learned a lesson. People would find it to be an eye opener, a loving post, but true appriciation would be to imbibe it. Surely the world would be a better place to live and breathe with joy.
