Love is born in heart. It flourishes in heart.It flows from heart. Love liberates us from the grasping of selfish desire, from the craving of getting something from someone even at the cost of the other person's well being. When I offer mylove to someone as a gift from my heart with no expectationof getting something in return I feel a tremendous amountof ofjoyfulness,tenderness, warmth and fulfillment. It is my conviction the we are born with the potential to love everyone.What we need to do is to open out heart to relate to nature and other human beings lovingly, kindly and compassionately. The seeds of love need to be nourishedby ourunconditionallove. This is my way of cultivating love.
I have been blessed to have loving people in my life who have extended handtheircaring hands to hold me in theirwarm and loving hearts. Such experienceshave helped me to nourish and cultivate warmth, tenderness and compassion in my heart. I will never forget how my mother raised me and took care of me and wiped my tears when I was feeling down and depressed. She always stood beside me even when she would be tired. he was an embodiment of love, kindness and compassion. By living example she taught me how to love. I have been following in her footprints even though she has passed away many years ago. She lives in my heart. Love never dies. It gets richer and deeper as I am growing like a tree!
Whenever I move into the dark zone of my life, love shines and helps me to go though the darkness of pain and suffering. I have learned the powerof becoming still and go though the dark zone without getting lost. The waves of pain and suffering subside and I regain my balance and inner strength. Remaining mindful of the self-created misery and freeing my self from the grip of my ignorance and attachment, I regain my peace.

I think it is really hard to beat the definition of real love as given by Jesus,in treating others as ourselves and even doing good to those who are your enemies and hate you.Treat every other human being as a child of the same God as yours.Put the interest of others before yours.
To summarise,our love for others need to unconditional and sacrificial,even to the point of dying for ones fellow men.
