When I am with you time stands still…really?

How much intensity of love is required to make one realise that love given, indeed is true love?

My dear friend, first of all, there is no such thing called ‘true love’.

Even if it is there… people expect you to give ‘unconditional love’ because they are selfish.

Later they may say that the love that is given is not sufficient and they advise you to show love with greater intensity, and in extreme cases, you may be asked to prove.

Is there any measure for expressing ‘true love’? 

I am at loss as to what constitutes ‘True Love’!!

Food for thought

Does ‘true love’ differ from person to person?

Is it the same for all?

Any units or standard?

At what stage you say  ‘true love’ has reached its peak and no more love left to be given.

Or you think ‘true love’ is unlimited.

    I think true love is hard to define and we all have our unique notions of what it entails.

      great thoughts my friend.
      Agree.we are all unique and our interpretation of true love also unique.
      Parameters vary!
      But the term ‘True Love’ remains same!😀😀😀

    Great post. Unconditional love/true love is a sticky concept.. I believe that it is possible to be in a state of unconditional love.. but many do not realise that this reality is conditional in a sense, dependent on many variables..

      Love your reply.
      A bit sticky and confused concept!
      But nobody vouches for unconditional love simply due to some inherent selfish motive.

        Indeed. Even the enlightened ones still have worldly conditons to fulfil.. I do not know. Maybe the one, the all (beyond words and concepts) is the source of unconditional love..

          Always I wonder who invented the term ‘unconditional love’ inspite of being aware that humanly it’s impossible.
          May be the guy wished everybody to get disappointed in expecting ‘unconditional Love’
          Thank you my friend for your thoughts.

            Much to ponder.. is a mother’s love unconditional? Or it is just because it is primal hormones and spirit connection, yet still conditions..

              My friend,mother’s love is not unconditional if she has more than one child, and chances of favouritism exists.
              Even with a single child…..possessiveness dominates and poor daughter in law can suffer.
              Do you call this unconditional love?
              Please enlighten me further.

    Am with you, especially on this line:
    “Even if it is there… people expect you to give ‘unconditional love’ because they are selfish”.

    If you give it, you believe in it, if only for a time
