Love and Relationships

I don’t support plagiarism but some good things must be shared and must be told and retold. With due credits to the unknown original sender of the forwarded email, let me share this story. It was allegedly narrated by Swami Vivekananda and gave me a wonderful insight into human relationships.

---------I once had a friend who grew to be very close to me. Once when we were sitting at the edge of a swimming pool, she filled the palm of her hand with some water and held it before me, and said this: "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 finds.

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 escape from you.”--------------
