It shouldn’t surprise anyone that love is the most cherished aspect of marriage. Love is about being willing to give everything you have and still be ready to lose it all. True love is above all self sacrificing and it requires no other other quality to affect its power entirely on another person. And don’t let anyone ever tell you differently.
Once you’ve mastered self sacrifice, this beautiful thing happens: contentment. That comes when we accept whatever we get back from the other person, without hesitation and without reconciliation. It’s a profoundly simple and clean transaction because it requires no ledger. You know that you are the other person’s to keep, and they are yours to keep, forever. It doesn’t come from diamond rings, or strings of pearls, and never asks for matching expectations. It comes from total and complete acceptance and that’s the greatest gift you can give another person.
The contentment and ease of Tara & Krishna’s love was a buzzing noise that whispered and screamed in equal measure. They are in love and we have proof.
