True Love






In love, saying that you just love and you dont expect is not true..
In love you do expect..
love is silent...
love is blissful...
love is eternal...
a never ending story...
love is spiritual...
Its a feeling of extreme agony and longing...
but its not about invaluable sacrificing...
Its not about worthless pains...
Its about giving your very self...
Its timeless...
Its about the smile of your beloved...
Its about her wonderful eyes...
Its about her crazy lunar laughs...
Its about her crackling bangles...
Its about her innocence...
Its about companionship...
Its about tendency to get back to one...
Because two is painful...
Everything wants to merge into something...
That is what is called Love...

The Power of love is so overwhelming that even in its skewed form as lust, it impells two people to come together in the name of love. Genuine love essentially commits itself to first giving or offering best from the heart with an attitude of pleasing the recipient. Lust wants to take from others, lust feeds on feverish praise, dominance and recognition, where as love maintains detachment from selfish gain.

Heres an analogy : Both gold and Iron sell in market as metals but a few grams of lustrous soft rare metal costs more than a tonne of its hard and dull counterpart (Iron), similarly selfless love doesnot lose its unprecedented value just because it is rarely experienced. Pretentious words and vain promises are favourite disguises of lust, love on the other hand wears garb of spirituality, speak language of purity, walks path of humility, adopts code of tolerance, being willing to sacrifice everything for welfare of the beloved.

Gentle love is invincible, whereas brutal lust because of its inflamable nature burns to ashes all traces of compassion, reason and empathy, when lust turns to frustration all illusion, false attraction and attachment turns into retaliation in form of abuse, defamation and destruction. THERES NO TRACE OF LOVE HERE...until and unless one is able to descriminate between true love and deceptive lust, one is unable to understand that the ardent lover of god is fully prepared to undergo any kind of adversity birth after birth to attain the lotus feet of the lord.

Once Lord Krishna had a splitting headache, no doctor could cure him, finally krishna revealed that only dust of his unalloyed devotees could give him relief, so the gopis, who were his unalloyed devotees inspite of being aware that this would be the most serious crime to put the dust of there feet on the head of the supreme lord, still went ahead and did it because of there unalloyed devotion, true love for the lord.
