Unconditional Love

That’s Not Love

And still, after all this time,

The sun never says to the earth,

“You owe Me.”

Look what happens with

A love like that,

It lights the Whole Sky.

– Hafiz

Love doesn’t demand anything in return. It’s selfless giving without expectation.

If there is a demand from the beloved and you’re supplying that, it means it’s not love but trading.

I’m in a relationship and using someone to fulfill my desires; it’s not love but selfishness.

If you’re saying that you love me and you’re exploiting me for your benefit…

Isn’t that a burglary?

Love is simple. To love someone is falling in love with yourself. Treat her as a part of your body and soul.

To love means living with a perfect human being. There are no faults in beloved. She’s perfect. The imperfection is within you or me.

Many times we make an error. We become infatuated with someone special. That’s not love.

I’ve heard people saying that love is blind but my experience says that love opens our eyes.

We enter into a dimension from which we derive the meaning of life. With love comes greater purpose in life.

We become more human. It’s the grace of God that I fell in love with the right person and rose in life as a better human being.

I wish the same for you.
