What is Luv?

You must be thinking why I am trying to redefine the everlasting thing in this world. But I cant stop my self from expressing my thoughts on this beautiful feelings.

The person who has not fallen in love is a looser.I always say thank you to God for this beautiful feeling.

Love is a poetry, Everybody should try to write it. Don't worry about whether it will be good or bad, just write it. As every poetry is unique and the mirror of poet's soul so does the love.

Here I would like to share one wonderful thought from Swami Vivekananda:

True love can never react so as to cause pain either to the lover or to the beloved.
Suppose a man loves a woman; he wishes to have her all to himself and feels extremely
jealous about her every movement; he wants her to sit near him, to stand near him,
and to eat and move at his bidding. He is a slave to her and wishes to have her
as his slave. That is not love; it is a kind of morbid affection of the slave, insinuating
itself as love. It cannot be love, because it is painful; if she does not do what
he wants, it brings him pain. With love there is no painful reaction. Love only
brings a reaction of bliss. If it does not, it is not love. It is mistaking something
else for love.
When you have succeeded in loving your husband, your wife, your children, the whole
world, the universe, in such a manner that there is no painful reaction of pain
or jealousy, no selfish feeling, then you are in a fit state to be unattached.
