How can Love be maintained?
If you wish to make friends with somebody, you first create a longing for him in your mind. If you wish to love God, you should cultivate a longing for God. Love cannot remain alive without continuous cultivation. We can maintain Love by Love.
If we wish to be happy in some work, the happiness can be achieved only by doing that work regularly and continuously. Similarly, in order to become a lover we have to persist in our love. In order to get love we have to do something, and if we wish to keep our love for someone alive, we have to follow certain principles. And for this it is necessary to sacrifice time and possession.
Love can be maintained by exerting the same amount of effort that we spent in winning it.
