Love, romance and lust: Know their attributes this Valentine Day
Often, we are confused about the mental states of lust, romance and love. It also said that 'love' is one of most searched words on the internet. However, the web-searchers are unable to get the real meaning of love, and rather get opinions on love.

According to Danielle Steel, lust is temporary, romance can be nice, but love is the most important thing of all. "Because without love, lust and romance will always be short-lived," he opines. However, one he provides an attribute of love as something that is timeless.

Similar views have been expressed by Randeep Hooda at Brainy Quotes website by saying, "Love is a strange emotion. It is ever evolving. Lust is transient. With time, one realizes that love and togetherness are two different things. Very few people are lucky enough to experience the two emotions simultaneously."

Love happens but it cannot be described and it is some ever-new, something that is evolving, as William Penn says, "Love grows. Lust wastes by Enjoyment, and the Reason is, that one springs from a Union of Souls, and the other from a Union of Sense."

Here in my haiku, I have tried to capture some of the attributes of 'true love', however, no words can describe love.

Love's liberation.

Real love is without ego –



Love ends otherness.

Love unifies one and all.

Love makes us divine.


Love's cosmic oneness –

The end of all dualities.

It's the blissful state.


Mind just corrupts love.

Flee mind and love will follow.

Pure mind begets love.


Love resides within.

Know thyself and be pure

To live life of love


Reach in-realm of life.

Realise your resilient spirit

N experience love.
