Love and Greed

Love = Selflessness

Greed = Selfishness

Love Expands

Greed Contracts

Love unites

Greed Divides

There are many shades of love and greed, but the absolute form of both are opposite poles. When you say you love somebody it means that you are putting that persons needs first, well above your needs. You care more for that person than you care for yourself. Love is looking out. Greed is looking in. Love is qualitative. Greed is quantitative.

Love heals and renews the spirit. Greed is a scar on the spirit that we carry. Although the spirit is not cleavable, greed can make it lacklustre in appearance. Love is inner beauty. Greed is of the flesh. Love what you do and do what you love. Don't let greed come in the way. A noble thought translated into action is a form of love.

Be proud of the actions which emanate from love. Greed makes us look down. Love makes us look up. There is no end to love. Take sunlight for example or rains. They shower upon the just and the unjust. In a similar way, love does not judge. It is unconditional. Even if things don't turn out the way you want it to be, the very fact that you have loved will save you from the karmic repercussions

Love is passion when the intensity is more. But the passion should arise from the deep abyss of the heart. Love as many as you can. It takes you one step towards God. Love inspires you to action. And believe me, all actions arising from love will bear positive outcomes. It may not be evident in the beginning, but in due course of time, you will realize.

Be true to yourself. Spread the message of love to everybody on this beautiful planet.
