How IS love attained, you ask?
Patience, my child. All in good time.
First, let me tell you what I realised.
I kept seeing certain people who were really liked/loved by others. So, for example, Persons A, B and C would really like Person D.
Just one thing: D didn’t necessarily like A, B or C and even if she did, then it wasn’t the way that they liked her.
So I wondered why it was like that. When I dug further, I realised that A, B and C liked D because D had done a lot for them. However, D didn’t have to like them because they had not done anything for her.
And aren’t we all like that? Don’t we all like those who GIVE us more than those who take from us?
And then it struck me: Love is attained by giving and it is NOT attained by getting.
So the people who are highly beloved to others are generally that way because they gave a lot to those people (it could be their wealth, their time, their support, etc). Therefore, they attained the love of others by giving to those people.
