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:
"You see this water carefully contained in my hands? 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 around it and try to possess 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 possess their loved one. They demand. They expect.
Love is meant to be free, you cannot change its nature. If there are people you love, you must allow them to be free.
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 show your affection and expect nothing in return. That's why it's called unconditional love"
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 well!!!
