Love is…..

To understand something, we at times understand what it isn’t. Love isn’t a need, it isn’t a forever promise, it isn’t always a sacrifice from one end. Scott Peck defines love as “The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own and another’s spiritual growth”. This definition actually helped me to understand the meaning of love, if you love someone, you prioritize their growth. You extend yourself and it involves risk, courage, understanding and care. However, it isn’t necessary that you show your love. It is a feeling, an understanding which is to be known and accepted.

One more important learning was about forgiveness.

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free, and discover that the prisoner was you.” by Lewis B. Smedes.  You forgive, you open the gates wide open for your growth.

I would like to express my gratitude to Brinda Ma’am and Krishna ma’am for constantly sharing their life stories with us. You motivated us to actually introspect and bring this workshop to life.
