Many of us are used to measuring how much a person loves us. Moreover, we are used to defining specific ways in which we want love and measure love. We define love with many things, including how many times someone says I love you, what they are willing to do for us, are they with us or not, are they willing to give up things for us or change for us. Can they meet are immediate need for love, affection, or romance?
When we measure love, we become obsessive and lose all the beauty of all the love around us. We push away love and create obligation or a test for the other. We may even start manipulating it towards a particular form or goal and lose the pure essence of free flowing love.
Love should never need any proof, need not pass any test or need not have any celebration. Love is simply a blessing to be received with gratitude.
