    hi all il,

    I got this fwd ,thought to share with u all...........

    A Nice Article about Love
    by Swami Vivekananda


    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 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."

    Passing thought... Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take;
    but by the moments that take our breath away.....

    Life is beautiful!!! Live it !!!


    Friendship often ends in love but love in friendship never ends..
