Love - winning and losing

To love and win is the best thing. To love and lose ~ the next best.
-William Makepeace

How true...!

Read these line somewhere and it got me thinking. When we talk of 'love', where is any place of 'winning' or 'losing'? Love is not a game where you win or lose. If 'winning' means getting the other person to love you back, then you are not loving, you are satisfying your own ego. If 'losing' means the person not loving you back equally then too, what is your loss? You love not to get into a business deal, where you give something to get something in return. You love because you cant help it. Beacuse love is that stream of joy which flows from your heart by itself. If its love that we are talking about, then it should be like that stream ~ just happy to be flowing....

"Earth wind and rain and fire,
Wealth power love desire,
One goal to live for before we die,
One taste of glory,
One mouthful of sky..."
