Selfless Love is True Love

When you love somebody, then why do you clash with them?

Because you are filled with expectations, demands, attachment, possessiveness, jealousy and so on… Until these emotions are occupied within, you might feel bound and experience suffocation at some point in time. This illustrates that it cannot be true love.

True love is selfless, but until now we have been selfish about love because we hoped to get it from our loved ones, we never thought about giving it. Out of all the relationships, selfless love can be seen in the eyes of a mother. Only a mother’s love is regarded the highest.

Selfless love is different from worldly love. It results only in happiness.
