A Story of my life

Based on True Story

Once had a very close friend who grew to be very close to me. I was very possessive and never wanted to miss her company. She didn’t like my possessive nature.

Once when we were sitting at the edge of a swimming pool at Pune, she filled the palm of her hand with some water and held it before me, and said this:

  1. You see this water carefully contained on my hand? It symbolizes Love. This is how I see 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 finds.
  2. To truly practice it, you must sincerely feel no expectations from those whom you love, and yet an unconditional caring.
  3. Love is an emotion ie an intense feeling of deep affection or fondness for a person that comes from the heart and soul
  4. That was the greatest mistake that i did.
    I closed my fingures.
    I tried to hold her very tightly. I tried to possess her I demanded I expected her to be with me always——
  5. And just like the water spilling out of our hands She slipped out from my life
  6. Moral of the Story
  7. We can not change the nature of love.
    as love is meant to be free,
    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.
    This is the secret to true love.
