Love Stories

love stories“The sun shines down, and its image reflects in a thousand different pots filled with water. The reflections are many, but they are each reflecting the same sun. Similarly, when we come to know who we truly are, we will see ourselves in all people.” ~ Ammachi

I have wondered what love is…

At a cafe, a girl was telling a story to her friend how she needed a ride. She hasn’t even finished telling her story, but the other friend quickly said, while texting, who obviously seemed preoccupied, “I’ll go with you”.
She then answered, “But I haven’t even told you where and why”.
And her friend, stopped texting, looked at her, and replied, “Does it matter”?

A father and daughter were buying slurpees. The little girl wearing her fancy sunglasses walks over where the hot beverages are and took out two cup holders from the shelf. She asked her daddy to place the cup holders on their slurpees and said… “I don’t want your hands to get cold, Daddy”.

Love is all around us. It doesn’t have to be grand gestures. It doesn’t have to be explained. Love is acting on the wondering that sits in our hearts. Love are the things we do coming from the depths of our souls that make others feel like… … feel like they’re coming home.

That’s when you see its wonder. Even when you are not involved in their conversations or experiences, you are part of their love stories simply by being a witness. We open our hearts to love’s possibilities and then we see… and we wonder no more.

Namaste. =)

    1. We get ourselves preoccupied with our own thoughts clouding what is there to see. Awareness and mindfulness are not only done on our mats. The practice itself calls for us to carry these on.
      I know… easier said than done. I get lost without my mat most of the time. I’m not even sure how I came to hear those stories. But I’m thankful I did. xo
