Love vs Desire; Intention vs Expectation
This quote/passage by Hua-Ching Ni is a great one on love vs desire –– on intention vs expectation. Here’s to that wonderful thing, mindfulness.
“When the time comes that you feel love for someone be gentle. Love has a delicate nature. Never be rough with it or it will be completely destroyed. Always distinguish the difference between love and desire. Love gives pleasure; desire creates pressure. Desire, loneliness, tension and disappointment can all deteriorate the delicate nature of true love. To love is to be gentle. Tender love is truly beneficial in any circumstance. If love is not given gently, it becomes stormy. Stormy love, like stormy weather can never last long.”
