A simple Article about Love - By Swami Vivekananda

Hemalatha Started The Discussion:

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
Love."

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
are
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,
you
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.
