Beautiful thoughts on love

Rarely do I come across a forward which touches me and which I find beautiful to the core. Here is one of them:

If you find yourself in love with someone who does not love you, be gentle with yourself. There is nothing wrong with you. Love just didn’t choose to rest in the other person’s heart. 

If you find someone else in love with you and you don’t love him/her, feel honored that love came and called at your door, but gently refuse the gift you cannot return. Do not take advantage, do not cause pain. 

How you deal with love is how you deal with you, and all our hearts feel the same pains and joys, even if our lives and ways are different.

If you fall in love with another, and he/she falls in love with you, and then love chooses to leave, do not try to reclaim it or to assess blame, let it go. There is a reason and there is a meaning. You will know in time. 

Remember that you don’t choose love. Love chooses you. All you can really do is accept it for all its mystery when it comes into your life.

Feel the way it fills you to overflowing, then reach out and give it away.  Give it back to the person who brought it alive in you. Give it to others who deem it poor in spirit. Give it to the world around you in any way you can.

That is where many lovers go wrong. Having been so long without love, they understand love only as a need. They see their hearts as empty places that will be filled by love, and they begin to look at love as something that flows to them rather than from them. 

The first blush of new love is filled to overflowing, but as their love cools, they revert to seeing their love as need. They cease to be someone who generates love and instead become someone who seeks love.  They forget that the secret of love is that it is a gift, and that it can be made to grow only by giving it away.

Remember this, and keep it to your heart. Love has its own time, its own seasons, and its own reason for coming and going. You cannot bribe it or coerce it or reason it into staying.

You can only embrace it when it arrives and give it away when it comes to you. But if it chooses to leave from your heart or from the heart of your lover, there is nothing you can do and there is nothing you should do.

Love always has been and always will be a mystery. Be glad that it came into your life, even if only for a moment.

  1. Speechless… Beautiful… So touching…Thanks for sharing

  2. Ayyooooooo… kalakkal post. Love is really a mystery heh.. this song tells us that most of the time, we make it a misery. 🙂

    I always wondered how guys can grow beard (what do girls do when they are lost in love ??!!) and long for the loved-one forever.. and I say: grow up people and get a life.. 🙂 as life is so precious to waste and wait for just one person — with no guarantee that they will either embrace or return your love — while there are other loved-ones waiting for you, right next to you, just for you.

    Enna kodumai sir ithu.. 🙂

    thanks! 🙂 and, you are welcome!


    thanks! 🙂 i agree with your philosophy. you can put your heart and soul into loving someone, but you must know when you have reached the point where you need to let go. that’s perhaps the hardest part…

    true love transforms… true love liberates… but if you feel otherwise, you probably need to think deeply…

  4. True love transforms and liberates – very true. No doubts!

  5. love is when conversations don’t need words, just a hand in hand can convey all the emotion that various other actions fail to convey, when one doesn’t have to try to make th eother understand.

    or that is how i imagine it to be. Falling in love is a beautiful thing innit?

    welcome here! thanks a lot! 🙂

  8. Hi Priya!
    A good, heart-healing blog for heart-brokens. And a line in your reply to Gopinath was very very true…that ‘when you have reached the point where you need to let go. that’s perhaps the hardest part…’

    Frankly, if u can let ur loved one go, which most ppl aren’t able to do, u can liberate ur soul. U can focus on ur life. Moreover, its not the end of life..rt? I can remember one beautiful quote rite now. It says… “Love is a gift, if you receive it, try and appreciate it. If not, don’t worry, someone’s still wrapping it for u.” I hope it’s true.

    Hey, Your thoughts are truly very inspring for those who seem to be lost and do not find the way to cope up with the failures or rather you can say those who have an image about love and dont get it.
    But would definately like to add that your expressions demands too much of sacrifice and is too much dependent on the one who love, whereas i feel, try to be selfish about yourself also, it is necessary sometimes. I would say, loving somebody is something very natural, you dont have a control on you, but otherwise, please love yourself too more than anything because you are going to remain with yourself at any point of time, so if you are facing any trouble in your love or lover, i would say, try hard to fix it and if it does not, then move ahead, because then it becomes compromise and not love. Love yourself first!! Love life!! Everybody gets to experience true love atleast once in life!! So feel happy and spread love generously..

    Love is the essence of life. Yet we find it difficult to find true love. There are many single men and women out there, looking for the right match. Many divorced and separated have no faith in love. But do not despair. Open your heart and be willing to risk it. Break out of the impenetrable fortress that you have built around yourself. Life is a good teacher…. so njoy every moment of life !!

  31. Meena

    love situated in heart not mind so it is difficult to definite love in words. but one thing can say love has no expectation.
