True Love In Relationship

What do you think is the meaning of love? Is it a profoundly tender affection or a dedicated bond of sacrifice and understanding for the other person’s betterment? Most people believe that love is unconditional and selfless. However, in reality, how many relationships in this world are really unconditional or selfless? Okay, you may still find selfless relations such as those of a mother and a child, but how many unconditional relations exist nowadays? Sadly, even love relations are not unconditional! Just some few heavily insulting statements and the partner demands breakup, just a few small mistakes and the father starts hitting the son, just a heed to the rumor story of fraud and the friend is likely not to see the accused pal’s face again!

Although these people may not have any overt conditions, but their these reactions talk about the hidden subtle conditions, making their love selfish for the other person in action. How can this be called love? So, what is true love? How to find true love? Well, in reality, true love is not to be found! It is something to be known and practiced! According to the Indian spiritual scientist Dadashri, true love is the one that does not see even a single fault in the other person. True love is a steady inner feeling that does not rise or fall as per the other person’s looks, actions, or situations. Perhaps, this is why it is said true love never dies. This is where true or pure love sets apart from illusions such as attraction or infatuation. These are the signs of true love.

The steady state is only possible when there is not even an iota of expectation, overt or subtle, from other person. In worldly interactions, only such love can win the hearts of children, wife, friends, parents, and colleagues because it gives rise to flawless vision that avoids any conflict, grudge, or revenge. Only this is called supreme love and in order to become the living embodiment of pure love, you need to know your real self!

Understanding of Pure Love

True love never increases or decreases even if the person does something good or bad.
