Recently, I‘ve been reading a lot about love and during my stay in India, I was lucky to come across Osho. He wrote so much that touched my heart and showed me that love, in the way most of us experience it, is not love, but lust or possession.
Love is connected to freedom, to acceptance and to being centered. The most unattractive quality a relationship - either family, friends, romantic - can have is to be possessive.
To demand something from the other is ultimately resulting in hurt and disappointment.
Living in a relationship were possessiveness leads to dependence is so depressing. No one wants to be put in a cage. No one wants to be made dependent.
Love changes. As everything, it‘s nothing static.
If we accept that fact, get over our egos and love the person without demanding sth or expecting sth, our relationships could turn into something so beautiful. We could build trust, we could be free ourselves, we could go through all kinds of experiences, and , most of all, we wouldn‘t hurt anyone.
This is a reminder that no one should control another person or think that there is any kind of allowance to possess someone.
Love is not there to always feel super excited and crazy about someone. If you accept one another and support the other person, no matter if their dreams go against oneself, then love can develop and raise into a deep connection.
Love more. ❤️ And don‘t be afraid of any change, trust in it.
Let love do it‘s magic. ✨
