An article by Swami Vivekananda

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 you keep your hand caring 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 retrive 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.
Advice , but don't order.
Ask , but never demand.
It might sound simple , but it is a lesson that may take lifetime to true practically . It is the secret of 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...
Love makes life beautiful . Live it ..!!!!
