thoughts about valentines day

“I love you but you didn’t bring me flowers.” Your love is hanging on flowers! You are seasonal, conditional, demanding and bargaining. Love is not a bargain. Love is not a business. It cannot be bought and sold. It has no condition. When you put a condition on love, it evaporates. © The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan, July 16, 1982

Yes I am a day late. But that doesn't really matter, because my thoughts about Valentines Day totally agree with this wonderful quote of Yogi Bhajan. I heard some ladies complaining during the day of the 15th of February, that their beloved man hasn't send a message yet and saw some other girls stressing about gifts and buying tasteless cards. Not enough of this silliness: They had to ask me what we will be doing on Valentines Day. Uhm!? We just came back from a 3 week uber-romantic holiday to Australia, we went for a delicious SPONTANEOUS dinner out on friday night and yes: We don't do Valentines Day. Not in general. But only when we want to do it. And that is far more often than once a year.
