Seek love within, not without. We all want love. But the question is, “Is love greedy?” Maybe no, maybe yes. I don’t know the answer. But according to Pope Benedict XV1, “Love is not greedy or self-seeking, but pure, faithful and genuinely free, open to others, respectful of their dignity, seeking their good, radiating joy and beauty.” That is what love is all about.
Real love is not greedy, but selfless. Love is not greedy. Love is not self-seeking. Love is pure. Love is faithful. Love is free. Love is open to all. And love is beautiful. And according to Maya Angelou, “Love costs all we are and will ever be. Yet it is only love which sets us free.” Yes, love is freedom. So if you want to be free, practice love.
“Love costs all we are and will ever be. Yet it is love that sets us free.”-
You are love. You have love within you. Do not expect love from anywhere. Because if you cannot give yourself love, real love, no one can. And do not love people for what they are doing for you. Love them for who they are, not for what they have. That is what unconditional love looks like. In the words of Meher Baba, “To love Me for what I may give you is not loving Me at all. To sacrifice anything in my cause to gain something for yourself is like a blind man sacrificing his eyes for sight. I am the Divine Beloved worthy of being loved because I am love. He who loves Me because of this will be blessed with unlimited sight and will see Me as I am.”
and it costs nothing.
“To love Me for what I may give you is not loving Me at all.”-
