Today at 6:00a.m in the morning, I and my 9 year old son went for a morning walk. While on the move we usually laugh and talk a lot. Our today's topic was on Love towards his family and friends.
Our destination was to walk till the near by community centre where he had swimming lesson to go to. After his swimming lesson, he decided to stop there a little more while. We took a seat at the edge of the pool coz he wanted to continue our topic. We continued. I filled the palm of my hand with water n held it before him and said:
"You see this water carefully contained on my hand? It symbolizes " Love."
This was how I saw it:
As long as you keep your hand caringly open and allow it to remain there, it will always be there. However, if you attempt to close your fingers round it and try to posses it, it will spill through the first cracks it find.
This is the greatest mistake that people do when they meet love...they try to posses it, they demand, they expect... and just like the water spilling out of your hand, love will retrieve from you. For love is meant to be free, you cannot change its nature. If there are people you love, allow them to be free beings.
Give and don't expect.
Advise, but don't order.
Ask, but never demand.
It might sound simple, but it is a lesson that may take a lifetime to truly practice. It is the secret to true love. To truly practice it, you must sincerely feel no expectations from those who you love, and yet an unconditional caring."
He enjoyed the topic n we got a good quality time with each other, that was more important as well.
