"My father always used to say that when you die, if you've got five real friends, then you've had a great life."
'A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out."
have a look at this.........

Love by Swami Vivekananda

I once had a friend who grew to be very close to me. Once when we were sitting at the edge of a swimming pool, she filled the palm of her hand with some water and held it before me, and said this: "You see this water carefully contained on my hand? It symbolizes Love.

" This was how I saw it: As long as you keep your hand caringly open and allow it to remain there, it will always be there. However, if you attempt to close your fingers round it and try to posses it, it will spill through the first cracks it finds.

This is the greatest mistake that people do when they meet love ... They try to posses it, they demand, they expect ... And just like the water spilling out of your hand, love will retrieve from you. For love is meant to be free,

You can not change its nature.

If there are people you love, allow them to be free beings.

Give and don't expect.

Advise, but don't order.

Ask, but never demand.

It might sound simple, but it is a lesson that may take a lifetime to truly practice.

It is the secret to true love.To truly practice it, you must sincerely feel no expectations from those who you love, and yet an unconditional caring."

Passing thought ... Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take; but by the moments that take our breath away.

ഒന്നും പ്രതീക്ഷിക്കാതെ ഇങ്ങനെ വെറുതെ വെറുതെ സ്നേഹിക്കുക...ആശയം നല്ലത്..ഞാനും ഏറെ ചിന്തിച്ചിട്ടുള്ള വിഷയം..പക്ഷേ സ്നേഹം എപ്പോഴും അടയാളങ്ങള്‍ തിരയുന്നു..പ്രണയത്തിലും ദാമ്പത്യത്തിലും,സൌഹൃദത്തിലുമെല്ലാം എന്തിന് ദൈവത്തിനു പോലും വേണം ചില സ്നേഹത്തിന്റെ ദൃശ്യാടയാളങ്ങള്‍.. അടയാളങ്ങള്‍ ഇല്ലാതെ പോകുന്നതാണോ പരിഭവങ്ങള്‍ക്കും മുറിപ്പാടുകള്‍ക്കും കാരണം..
ചിന്തനീയ വിഷയങ്ങള്‍ തന്നെ ഇത്..

തീര്ച്ചയായും,ഒന്നും പ്രതീക്ഷിക്കാതിരിക്കുമ്പോള്,വെറുപ്പിന്റെ അടയാളങ്ങള് പോലും,സ്നേഹത്തിന്റെ ഒരു ചെറു പുഞ്ചിരിയില്,മറക്കാന് കഴിയും.....പ്രതി കരണങ്ങല്ക്കെല്ലാം നന്ദി.
