On Love

“Love is when you are thinking … “how can I make you happy?” Attachment is when you are thinking … “why aren’t you making me happy?”      -by Dzogchen Ponlop

I realize that this is debatable specially if you are opposed to the philosophy of Buddhism, over acceptance and true lack of selfishness. However, at this moment this is the only thing that calms me down and helps me keep my sanity. I just realized that maybe my definition for philosophy of Buddhism is not that accurate.

Dear Blue Deep Sea,
I really didn’t mean for this post to come as if I am ungrateful for who I am or where I am. I am dealing with some issues in my life and I am trying to choose the best option. I think the post was too abstract for anyone to be able to analyze it. I am a bit careful of what I write here. I know it is anonymous but it is still out there for anyone to read.
It is always nice to hear from you :)

Daisy jaan,
Thanks for sharing the quote, I really liked it. I just want to add, we need a source for our love, so we cannot be a giver all the time, we need to receive love too ... this is more difficult and feels very vulnerable to ask for love!

I trust whatever your situation is you will be able to handle it and more importantly learn from it ...

Good LUCK
