Is it Love or Attachment?

" We are aware that Love is being in harmony not only with our fellow beings but realisation of unity and oneness with the Universe.But in reality,we often consider ourselves separate from this mankind and therefore, we suffer.

The concept of Love today is distorted.The much talked about Love is nothing but personal attachment. All such attachments limit us and make us dependent giving way to our 'Fall'. When we attach ourselves to a particular person or an object,we often get detached from parents, friends etc.People often say, he or she has' fallen' in love.This is not love but personal attachment.In true Love one never falls but rises because Love is sublime ."
"Him that I love, I wish to be free--even from me."

  1. I believe that the majority of relationships are about personal attachment and the need to control others. I was very much guilty of these feelings in my first marriage and it ruined it. The interesting part of it all is "we are all one anyway" so why to to control yourself?

  3. Another great post Surjit. I think you're right in saying that love is "distorted", and I think that has a lot to do with pornography as well. Coming from the root pornaeo, which means "to distort", pornography distorts the meaning of love.

    Also contributing to the distortion of love is the flippant use of the word. Saying "I love you." should have a lot more meaning than it does today...in fact looking at the types of love, with agape love being the highest, it's clear that the English word "love" is far from "agape" love.

  5. I agree with Beth. Problems occur when there is high EXPECTATION. When something is not reach your expectation than a person tend to be upset and hurt and so on. Learn to love someone with their nature character.

  9. I agree with you. When I see this post I remembered something said by Ajan Brahm, a Buddhist monk in Australia. He said, usually a monk is invited to give blessings in a wedding ceremony to the new couple. He once went to such a wedding and told the new couple, "do not think of yourself from today onwards". They heartily agreed, yep. Then he looked at both of them and said,” do not think about the other person either". What? "Yes think about the distance between you, your relationship".
