It is very unfortunate that many people cannot clearly see the distinction between love and lust and often mistake lust for love. This always results in unhappiness and pain. Love on the other hand, never goes there. Lust is all about selfish interest. Lust is about taking (‘what am I getting out of this?’) and love is about sharing and giving. Lust is a material condition, and love in its’ purest form, is a spiritual state. Its’ ultimate foundation is the loving connection between the individual soul and the Supreme Soul (yoga) and from that, can flow out to all others.
