LOVE- The True Essence of Life
The Origin & Epicenter of Goodwill, Kindness, Caring, Sacrifice, Compassion, Altruism & Benevolence.
‘Pothi padh padh jag mua, pandit bhaya na koy. Dhai akshar prem ke, padhe so pandit hoy’. So said Sant Kabir, a renowned social reformer, poet and thinker, some 500 years ago. Translated, it means ‘Everyone reads scriptures, but none becomes a scholar. Two and half letter of ‘Prem’ (‘Love’ written in Hindi occupies only two and half letters, ‘PYAR’, whosoever reads, becomes a scholar. That is the glory of ‘Pyar’ ).
The True Essence of Life
There are many four letter words in English dictionary but ‘LOVE’ is the most beautiful of them all. Love is life’s essence, energy, inspiration and motivation. It can be mother’s love or father’s or spouse’s or relative’s or friend’s, anyone’s for that matter. Love is like a healing balm, within and outside, for anyone whose life we touch. True love need not be reciprocated, since it wants nothing in return, expects nothing. With love, we shine and radiate. Love is unending, infinite and undemanding. It is the greatest gift God has given us.

Love speaks unspoken language not only from the mouth, but also from the eyes and heart. Love knows no barriers and is above caste, creed, color, region, religion or nationality. It fills everyone, both giver and receiver, with joy, ecstasy, delight, pleasure and true enduring happiness. Most things in life are ‘give and take’, while LOVE is only ‘Give and Give’. True lovers only GIVE.
Expects no rewards
Love expects no rewards, love knows no fear (since lack of love means fear), love does not demand, love thinks no evil, love has no motive. To love is to share and serve. Trust is cradle of love. Celebrate love since it is the breath of your existence and best reason for living. Love is strengthened by working together through conflicts. Everyone needs to be loved specially when they do not deserve it. Love is the only thing that can be divided without being minimized.
‘Love thy neighbor’. No, First Love Yourself (FLY). Why you must love yourself first, before you can love others? Because you will only love the person who is good, who is positive, the one who is kind and compassionate, who helps others in time of need, who is understanding and patient, who is mature, the one who treats everyone well. You will love yourself for your honesty, integrity, sincerity, strength of your character, willpower, discipline and your sense of humor. The smiles you can bring on others’ faces. It’s not only you who will love such a person but such a person is loved by all, everyone who comes in touch with him.
A loving person
Yes, if you are a loving person, everyone will love you and you will always live in the loving world. Love means forgiveness, patience, respect, faith and hope. Love will invariably be met by love. A loving smile will always be reciprocated by a loving smile. Love gives you strength to face life’s problems. Love inspires you, love motivates you. So always be loving and you see and feel love all around. When love is your nucleus, loving world will be your permanent abode.
‘TIME MAY BE A GOOD HEALER. BUT LOVE HEALS FASTER AND NEVER FAILS’. Showing kindness and compassion, is the mainstay of love. God measures love with kindness shown towards those not as lucky as you are. Love is the name of God, Ram, Krishna, Allah, Christ, Guru Nanak, Goutam Budh, because basic teachings of all religions is, LOVE alone.
