How to Love Someone…


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 !!!

“If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you (without you having to plead and beg), its
yours forever. If it doesn’t, then it was never meant to be.”
