Is Love Greedy?

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.”-

Learn To Love

What you cannot give yourself, don’t expect it from other people. If you cannot give yourself love, don’t expect love from other people. If you cannot make yourself happy, if you cannot make yourself a better person, if you cannot design your own life, if you cannot live your life on your own terms, don’t expect it from others. If you do, you are going to be disappointed. According to Meher Baba, “Happiest is he who expects no happiness from others. Love delights and glories in giving, not receiving. So learn to love and give, and not to expect anything from others.”

“Happiest is he who expects no happiness from others.”-
