Is Love a Virtue?

love_isIf Love is a virtue then why does it cause us so much pain and sorrow?

Love gives life and fills the heart with joy. It gives us so much happiness.
However having experienced love, what follows is the fear of the possibility of losing it. Pure love becomes polluted with attachment, the need to hold on. This neediness and possessiveness within attachment is what causes pain. It is this that brings the sorrow and hurt, not the love.

If I let go then love will do its work and express itself in its purest form. If I insist on holding on then I imprison its potential and damage its character so that it can no longer be what it was meant to be.

Love, and let love.

Om Shanti
