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 didn't choose to
rest in the other person's heart.
If you find someone else in love with you and you don't love her/him, 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 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 don't 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 to overflowing, then reach out and give it away.
Give it back to the person who brought 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.
This 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 to overflowing, but as their love
cools, they revert to seeing their love as need. 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 a mystery.
Be glad that it came to live for a moment in your life.
Don't deny love just only you don't want to be hurt...
IF YOU KEEP YOUR HEART OPEN, IT WILL COME AGAIN.
