A Nice Article about Love

A 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.....


Life is beautiful!!!  Live it !!!
