Love has a way of giving Man courage to do anything that is required of him on its path. When one is in Love every object seems to hold the reflection of one’s Beloved, every thought in one’s mind give birth to new possibilities and every action signifies a closer acquaintance with Love. This reflection, new possibilities and closer acquaintance leads Man towards the highest degree of Love, teaching him the traditions of Selflessness and Sacrifice.
Sacrificing one’s most dear thing can leave ever lasting impressions on one’s psyche. High degree of patience and zeal is needed for this act, without which it becomes impossible to carry out any form of Sacrifice.
We usually consider ourselves master of the things we have. At times it turns out to be the reverse. Soon after we take something in our possession, it starts influencing our thoughts and take control of our psyche. We can not think of ourselves living without that article. Only then we realize that we are no longer the masters but are being mastered by our possessions.
The tradition of Sacrifice can help us in this respect. Energy of Love gives us strength to practice control over our Self and the souls of our possessions too. Giving something away, without getting any personal benefit in return, results in a proportionate mixture of feelings consisting of Power and Humbleness. Power because we consider ourselves to have the ability to give away something hence has control over it, and humbleness because what we possess is not ours any longer.
Sacrifice can be for many causes. It can be for the Love of God, for the prosperity of one’s Nation or even for the nourishment of one’s own soul. Whatever is the reason to sacrifice something Love is the driving force behind it and Love is the end result of this practice. Love and Sacrifice go hand in hand. So if you Love anything or anyone never hesitate to sacrifice your most precious and valuable possessions for the sake of your Love.
On this note a very Happy Eid to all of you out there. May God bless us!
