Love and Compassion


I was having an interesting discussion with a very close friend of mine and we were discussing about love and She said true love liberates you . IF something binds you , it is not love . It  is difficult to comprehend what she said  if you just give a cursory glance on this but look closely and you will know what it implies.

Love is the wings that makes you believe that you can fly in the sky without any help from anybody . True love asks the sacrifice of “I” , of identities . Any relationship which keeps on asking Why , how , When is not actually love. Love is eternal , distance and time are not the hindrance but bridges which connect two souls. Love does not expect anything in return , it is selfless and free from any expectations. True love gives you freedom , it does not bind you , it helps you to explore the divine side of self.

Love and compassion are the faces of the same coin . Compassion is formed from two words ,Co and passion. When you feel somebody’s pain as its own and want to help them selflessly that feeling is called compassion. Love and compassion are the two emotions that make us human and takes us on the path of godliness.In our day to day life also it is very important that when we want to do something for our family and friends , it should be driven by love and compassion. I truly believe in the fact that what we give to others comes back to you . But our asking is not selfless , it has greed and want . When we are driven by greed and want, love and compassion takes a backseat.

We have life situations when we want people around us to behave in certain way but they don’t, be it family , friends , strangers or loved ones. Look closely and they are also scared , deep down hurt by certain incidents . They too feel separate sometimes , when this realization comes , you let the light of love shine in your heart and see things in a different perspective. Love manifest in various forms , it dissolves us from isolation and separation ,allowing us to become more aware of ourselves. IS n’t it true that we are born out of love and finally in love we depart ? In between that we seek love and love seeks us .
