Love is simultaneously the purest and one of the most complex emotions we find. True love at its purest, is just that – pure, true and love. It is unpolluted, untainted, unencumbered by desires, expectations, needs or wants. Love is content just to love. Love needs no reciprocity. Love needs no appreciation. Love loves for the very sake of loving. Love is its own reward.
Love dissolves the very borders and boundaries of who you are, as you melt into its vast ocean. Love takes you from time to timelessness, from separation to divine union. Love is the sunshine that coaxes open the petals of the flower. Love is the water that causes the seed to sprout. Love causes those who love – whether they are people or flowers – to blossom and grow.
-Swami Chidanand Saraswati
