Once upon a
time , two sisters , who were twin and unmarried were traveling by the
path of life and each one was trying to find her couple. It happened to
be a great celebration in the town , they were visiting. and they
decided to meet that night after the celebration , to see what had
happened and which had been their luck and if they had found what they
were wishing for .
These twin sisters were extraordinarily similar in the outside but on
the inside they were as different , as day and night . One, was very soft
and delicate , she was very fond of flowers , animals , peace and she was
very pleased when she was able to help the ones in need . The other , on
the contrary, was extremely arrogant and egoistic , she lied very easily
and she couldn't care less about what could happened to the persons near
her . And of course , she didn't want to do good but to take advantage
and use every person to her own benefit . Her mood always was unstable
and capricious .
Well , they went to the town's festival and by mystery or destiny's
wisdom , they met , a very handsome gentleman , who was the most powerful
man of the town and both felt something very special about him . And the
gentleman , also thought that they both looked as two bright stars . He
had heard about the sisters but had been warned by his wise
advisers , that their beauty surpassed that of the flowers but to be very
careful because , one was like an angel , while the other one was like
darkness , and very manipulative .
And he praised both in a fine and delicate way and he wished in his
heart , to be able to know , who was light and who was darkness . Then , one
of the persons accompanying the gentleman , approached the sisters , in
order to introduce the nobleman .
And he said to them : This gentlemen is
the owner of all this land and his fortune and power are vast but
having many material things , he still does not have a wife and wanting
to add to the happiness of this festival , this night he will choose the
queen of his heart .
Both , felt very flattered ,
while , the gentleman in order to get to know them , decided to ask them
some simple questions but with a mysterious key , which would allow
him to know who was the most worthy and noble .
gentleman said : "My kingdom is great , vast and very rich . I have many
treasures and in the shore of a stream , some very delicate yellow
flowers grow . They last just for a few hours . What do you think
about this ?
sister said : " What a great wealth , how much power , what a fascinating
empire ! I am sure that there must be a castle and in it even more
fascinating treasures . If I could live there , I would feel fascinated
by so much glory and power "
sister, replied : " Tell me sir , what else can you say about those little
flowers , which are probably great and wonderful , since if they can make
their lives in only one day , how many important , subtle and wonderful
things they will know . But , although this is important , I would love to
accompany you and to be able to be with those flowers even for an
instant . It will be an instant but it will look as eternity "
was the answer of this sister , who didn't even mention , wealth or
power , she only talked about the flowers .
Then , it
was immediately known about these beautiful twin sisters , that one was
named : Want and the other , Love.
Even though they look alike , they truly
are completely different . Want , is after possession and control . She
will never be able to love because her only desire is to posses . Love ,
on the contrary is sublime and subtle . She will give , she will
devote everything , without asking anything in return , since she
is already rich .
never be like Want because , she does not look to posses , only to give
the best of her . Want and Love are similar , but only in the outside . In
the depth of their inner selves , they are opposite universes .
this dialogue Love danced with the gentleman and the story says that
they were extremely happy . The story also says that they did not abandon
Want , they gave her a very large castle , which Want filled with mirrors .
The story also says that Want was accompanied by the mirrors , by her
image and her loneliness . On occasions , she would make her believe that
she was happy but afterwards , she would realize her own loneliness .
blossomed and they had children , who kept on dignifying earth . In the
meantime , Want was losing her beauty and she ended in the chaos of her
lack of love .
Want and Love may seem as two
drops of water but if we ever taste this water , we would find that one
is sour and salted , while the other is as essence of roses and honey .
this story: they both met that night and both said they had found
happiness . But , we know that in one of the sisters , it was true
happiness, while in the other , it was only vanity and curse .
