Poet's Notes about The Poem

Passion, compassion, and dispassion

A basic key to life force or success, is passion
Freud, ‘Libido’ or Bergson, ‘Elanvital’ is another name of passion
It could be for a person, cause humanity or God
But passion transcends its limits and direction when touched by compassion and dispassion

Buddha’s ‘Maitri’ and ‘Karuna’ are higher than love as we normally understand
Like flowers, fragrance and shine of sun and moon it has no biased stand
Unconditional, with no expectation it is pure self expression
Apure form of love, its includes caring and friendship besides passion

Without compassion and dispassion or equanimity, passion and love may turn violent and possessive
We find such toxic bonding in marriage parent-child or any blood-relative
The unconditional and pure Love is the core of all great religions and even Psychology
Expanding love in to LOVE is mans special prerogative.
