Love is not blind but it’s definitely beautiful

During all the sessions, I was able to reflect back on my relationships and it made me realize that actually, the fantasy that I held as the definition of being loved is just a myth and in reality, it is deeper than the 3 words – “I love you”. It also gave some insight about how we make people depended by pretending to love them which is being selfish and not actually loving them. In fact, we don’t love our own selves if we are doing it.

Lastly, I would like to thank Brinda Ma’am and Krishna Ma’am for being such a great facilitators and bursting so many of my myths about love and opening my eyes towards actual love and how it is already there in my life in the form of my husband, my parents, few selected besties.

First of all I would like to thank my facilitators Krishna Ma’am and Brinda Ma’am for the beautiful session.
The first thing I learned is “ Life is difficult”. We all have many problems in our life and that is normal. It’s how we take our problems, that matters. The time you will start accepting things the way it is, problems will become easy.
I learnt that it takes lots of efforts to love someone. it cannot happen just like that.
When you feel for someone, you take care beautifully and do things that makes them happy as well as makes you happy too. Whatever you do for someone it should not be at the cost of sacrificing yourself or your identity or your happiness.
So I will try to implement whatever I have learn during the class and will develop my self.

One Extends One’s Limit only by exceeding them – Scott M Peck …Journey of love class.

Love is Complicated – When we genuinely love we do so because we want to love. Feeling is a part of love but not in totality. Love requires our dedication and effort. Its an action. Love classes has been a great platform for me to introspect and understand what is love and what we aim to tag as love at times. It has made me realize that ups and downs are a part of life and pain and suffering are inevitable, but to strengthen the relationship we need to master the art of balancing and ponder that whether the effort we put in is channelized in the true spirit with the definition of love that is,’The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth’.
I truly thank my facilitator and the initiative taken by the organization for the growth of an individual as a whole.
Lastly Love is a free exercise of choice and an act of extending ourselves.

Seven Buck Moment!!

Sharing our ‘Seven Buck Moment’ was one of the best experiences we had during the first two days of our Integrity class. It was like an eye-opener for me as I realized I am not the only one struggling in life.

I am grateful to both the facilitators for facilitating the session fabulously. Looking forward to the next session 🙂

Love Zeta 2017-18 /(Nilesh Patel/Anuj Kumar)

Life – For me life is difficult because I mostly struggle with confronting and always feel that it requires a lot of courage  to confront . I keep blaming myself for any act or problem that arises in my life. I have learnt that if we have discipline in our life , life will not be that difficult . We have to identify the legitimate and illegitimate pain to grow in our life
Love  – Love is the will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth… Love is as love does. Love is an act of will — namely, both an intention and an action. Will also implies choice. We do not have to love. We choose to love
​I understood the true meaning of Love.Love is too large, too deep ever to be truly understood or measured or limited within the framework of words. One result of the mysterious nature of love is that no one has ever, to my knowledge, arrived at a truly satisfactory definition of love.Love is all about respect,freedom and understanding.
​I would like to say thank you to FS for conducting such classes for the entire school community.​

Love Class

“The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own and another’s spiritual growth.” – Dr. M Scott Peck.


Everyone has problems. We all know the ideal approach to solve our problems. But at times we are so tied up in our thoughts or work or any other commitment that we just react and neglect the entire process of addressing the root of the problem. We are just focused on moving on with our life. This often leads to lack of contentment. We often use the word “Love” as an escape to these problems.


The love classes helped me identify that immediate solution of a problem at hand is not the only approach. Identifying the root cause is important. Sometimes doing things for others may be categorised as love but it is just a feeling of acknowledgement that we seek. We can truly be capable of loving others only when we love ourselves.


Love is not a feeling or emotion but the actions we consciously take for our growth as well the person we are taking the action for.



Love Class Reflection

I have read certain fractions from the notes given and understood some points to what love is not. I believe Love is a personal perspective that differs from person to person. The definition of love given by M. Scott Peck, “The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth”, sounds practical as it focuses on the selfish nature of the love as nurturing spiritual growth of one own’s  as well as selfless nature wherein we are working for spiritual growth of others. However, when I introspect, I feel its important to understand that the author is a psychotherapist, where he has categorized the elements of love into some groups and his case studies only revolves around these basic elements. I believe the concept of love is really unique to oneself and to how one would like to or rather believe to attain spiritual evolution. This is because I personally feel no one can explain or generalize or even set a benchmark of how the  “spiritual growth” is attained. So how is it possible that we generalize what love is and what love is not?

Nevertheless, I respect and applaud the way how Scott Peck has brought together his experience and knowledge to relate and help us understand what his perspective is towards the concept of love.

My Conceptual Understanding about Love

Hi all.

I would like to share my understanding till now about Love after 4 sessions of Love class.

The very first thing that was cleared well is, Love is not a mere feeling, neither an affection nor an attraction.

As Scott Peck explains, Love involves Risk, Love involves Independence, Love is Selfish, Love asks at times for Self-sacrifice, Love grows with Confrontation, Love is Desire + Action.

To understand Love, one needs to Love with Discipline, one needs to Love with Courage, one needs to Love with Understanding, one needs to Love with Knowledge.

One can truely Love only if one allows the spiritual growth of the entity whom we Love. To attain and be able to truely Love one needs to attain the same Maturity continuum about which Stephen Covey insists upon in his theory of Seven Habits.

Love- Epsilon (2017)

Reflection – Love Class

At the outset, I would like to thank our facilitators Nandini ma’am and Priyanka ma’am for their efforts and patience. They both have been really kind and warm to us which actually helped us to open up and share without hesitation. I also want to thank the school and the management for conducting such trainings where an individual gets a platform to grow professionally as well as personally.

The best part, of these platforms,is that you are encouraged to share and be yourself. You are not judged but respected.

As for the sessions, I attended I got to know various perspectives of love. Like others even I have a thought process. But my experience of love in life is different. Love just comes, it is a feeling. You cannot categorize, plan or decide when to love, whom to love or how to love.

So for now I will go with my way of love as I do not really agree with Scott Peck on his perspective towards love. But I am open to more learning,more sharing and exploring.

Love Classes Reflection

Love classes provide a platform where we actually take a pause and redefine love. What is love and what is not love- these questions we tend to miss out, due to our busy schedules and these classes make us think that are we really in love or just bound by duties which we anyway have to do, for the sake of doing it in the name of love, care, and affection.

In our last sessions, discussions were extensively based on the book, ‘The Road Less Travelled’ by American Author- M. Scott Peck. The book was published in 1978 and was one of the best-selling books. After reading the examples and the kind of discussion that took place, I feel, indeed it’s one of the best books to understand love or real love.

The facilitators led healthy and meaningful discussion along with activities on both the days. Both Priyanka mam and Nandini mam were supportive throughout the discussions and answered our questions with utmost clarity and calmness. There was not even a single moment where I felt that the sessions were not worth.

The points I can recollect from the love classes: Falling in love is effortless which eventually fades out and one has to seek for real love which is eternal and leads to the complete well-being of an individual including spiritual growth. We, humans, long for oneness, which gives us assurance of safety, happiness, and belonging. But from the very initial stages of our life, we tend to form ego boundaries which isolate us from rest of the world and create the feeling of loneliness. Once we reach our mid-adolescents we again tend to drive for oneness and our rescue is the one we feel, we’ve fallen for. But that is very much temporary. The realization comes when arguments and expectations differ and again the ego boundaries are raised. Real love starts only when the falling in love phases out. We also discussed The Risk of Loss, The risk of Commitment, The risk of Independence and The Risk of Confrontation. So when we surpass all these risks we actually discover real love.
