Nice 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!
