Life doesn’t come with a “conditions apply” tag or guarantees. We do not know what life will serve in its platter in the next 5 minutes or what we will be like over the years to come. Yet we never question life. Why ? Because we have faith. Because we trust. We trust life. We trust the supreme creator, some call him God. We take life as it is, as it comes, the atrocities and the hardships as well as the joys and happiness. At times we feel disappointed, but that doesn’t mean that we give up. We persist. Because we know that life has its booms and recessionary phases. At times life is a beautiful sunny day and at other times, we are walking in the dessert sand guided by the dim moonlight !
So it is with love. But why do we fail to understand this ? Just as life, love comes with no guarantees, there is no guarantee that the person you love so unconditionally, will ever feel the same way for you. You can not attach conditions to love saying that you will love if your conditions are fulfilled. Love is a form of trust. A form of surrender to the person you love. Love is unconditional. Love is not because, it is despite. Love is not merely about a lover. It is the love of parents, a friend, a child, a teacher, a neighbor, a pet or a stranger at times. Love doesn’t question. Love doesn’t ask for anything in return. Love only gives without expecting anything in return. True love is when you see the glimpse of the almighty in another soul, as it is well said :
“Tu hi to jannat meri, tu hi dil ka sukun,
Tujme rab dikhta hai, yaara mein kya karu”.
“You are my heaven, you are my heart’s content,
I see God’s reflection in you, my love”
Love without questions, inhibitions, demands or conditions. Then you will never need to find love. Love will find you. It will engulf you in its ocean till you are submerged. Till your heart overflows with love, care and compassion for every living being, after all we all are a reflection of God.
