Love is something spontaneous and not acquired.

In Qur'an 2:247 it is given ALLAH grants HIS power to whom HE pleases.

In the words of Al-Hujwiri, near whose grave Kwaja Mo'inuddin Chishti sat in meditation
Love is a divine gift,not a thing that can be acquired by human effort without divine grace...
If the whole universe wished to attract love,it could not.If it made the utmost effort to
repel it ,it could not.

shree found this extremely beautiful.

beautiful indeed.

also sharing a sufi poetry:

The secret of love is not for everyone
So the kissing of this great courtyard
is not in everyone’s destiny.

Take yourself close to the heart aflame with Divine Love
This fire cannot be ignited it has to be attained.

Ah, the great secret of love, that it is a divine gift :) I used the same quote in Master of the Jinn :)

Ya Haqq!
