Is this Love?

October 30, 2014 at 8:26 am 4 comments


We may say we love a person or even a places or a things. But how do we define this love?

When we ‘like’ someone or something, or we feel our heart being pulled to the same repeatedly, we believe that to be love.

However there are two things: Love and Attachment
If we check the seed of our love and find that there is a ‘need’ within that – something we feel we cannot do without – then understand that this is not love but In fact it is attachment.

Attachment comes from a place of fear – the fear of not having or of losing that which I ‘love’.
Love, real love is pure and selfless; where there is love there can not be fear. It is a quality that is unlimited and something that we give. It is a ‘giving’ and not a ‘taking’ and In giving there cannot be fear of losing.

Look within your heart and check….Is this Love?


Om Shanti

    Dear Sister,

    This time I dont agree with this post because what if person loses or sacrifice his /her life….in love?

      I guess you need to question what that love was – Love heals and empowers the person whom we love but also the one who is giving love. In this way Love is also a power. If someone is feeling they need to give their life then maybe the root intention or purpose is not love (although it may appear to be on the surface)
