More on Love…


Love is difficult to define and there may be different definitions. One definition of love is an utter, absolute and unqualified wish for the happiness of another individual. It is a heartfelt wish for other’s happiness regardless of whether that person does something to injure us or even whether we like that person. Love cures peopleboth, the ones who give it and the ones who receive it. Love keeps no record of wrongs. The one who loves seeks only the welfare of the beloved and does not care whether he / she suffers pains and hardships thereby. You have not lived until you’ve found someone dying for. Love and suffering go together. No one who really loves can escape suffering. 


If we are spiritually alive our capacity for love and service will be ever growing. Service of others is the outer expression of the love in one’s inner heart.


Just because somebody doesn’t love you the way you want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have. 


The supreme happiness in life is the conviction that we are lovedloved for ourselves or rather loved inspite of ourselves.   


Very few are rich in love. How can they love when they have none in themselves?


Love comes unsought, unasked, from heaven.


To give love is freedom, to demand love is bondage. The day we take up the policy of giving love, instead of demanding it; that day, we will have rewritten our entire future destiny.


May you discover pure, unconditional love and abide in Infinite Bliss.

We need to reflect and understand the deeper meaning of these statements and follow them in our lives at all times. 1) A mistake that makes us humble is better than an achievement that makes us arrogant. 2) A blind person asked Swami Vivekananda: “Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?” He replied: “Yes, […]
