If you find yourself in love with someone who does not love you, be gentle with yourself
There is nothing wrong with you. Love just didnt choose to rest in the other person's heart
If you find someone else in love with you and you dont love him/her, feel honored that love came and called at your door, but gently refuse
the gift you cannot return.
Do not take advantage, do not cause pain.
How you deal with love is how you deal with you and all our hearts
feel the same pains and joys, even if our lives and ways are different.
If you fall in love with another and he/she falls in love with you
and then love chooses to leave, do not try to reclaim it or to assess
blame, let it go.
There is a reason and there is a meaning. You will know in time.
Remember that you dont choose love, love chooses you. All you can really
do is accept it for all its mystery when it comes into your life. Feel the way it fills you, then reach out and give it away.
Give it back to the person who bought it alive in you.
Give it to others who deem it poor in spirit.
Give it to the world around you in anyway you can.
There is where many lovers go wrong. Having been so long without love,
they understand love only as a need. They see their hearts as empty
places that will be filled by love and they begin to look at
love as something that flows to them rather than from them.
The first blush of new love is filled but as their love cools, they
revert to seeing their love as needs.
They cease to be someone who generates love and instead become someone
who seeks love.
They forget that the secret of love is that it is a gift and
that it can be made to grow only by giving it away.
Remember this and keep it to your heart. Love has its own time,
its own seasons and its own reason for coming and going.
You cannot bribe it or coerce it or reason it into saying.
You can only embrace it when it arrives and give it away when it comes to
you But if it chooses to leave from your heart or from the heart of your
lover, there is nothing you can do and there is nothing you should do.
Love always has been and always will be mystery.
Be glad that it came to live for a moment in your life.
If you keep your heart open, it may come again.
