Pure Love is the Strongest force in Life
Pure love is a feeling deep within a person’s mind. Some might refer to these feelings as vibrations within the heart or soul. Pure love fosters compassion kindness and giving. In their purest form, these feelings of love are not conditional upon any desires for the self, including the desire to be loved in return.
Take the example of the mother’s affection for her child. In most cases, she just serves and gives to her child unconditionally. You might say that in the mind of the dedicated mother, serving and giving is the purpose of living. Sometimes, the mask of worldly desires fogs the mind of the mother.

Deprived of the total dependency of the child on her, the mother might develop insecurity, leading to the desire to be loved back in return.
