How to Love
The Four Elements of Love
True love is made of four elements: loving kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity.
In Sanskrit, these are: maitri (metta), karuna, mudita and upeksha.
If your love contains these elements, it will be healing and transforming, and it will have the element of holiness in it. True love has the power to heal and transform any situation and bring deep meaning to our lives.
