હિંમતવાન, નિ:સ્વાર્થી, પરગજુ અને વિકાસશીલ મનુષ્યો જ સાચો પ્રેમ કરી શકે

સાચો પ્રેમ શું છે? શું પ્રેમ એ માત્ર લાગણી છે? શું પ્રેમ સ્વાર્થીપણું અને સંકુચિતતા છે? પ્રેમ આપણા જીવનનું એક જબરજસ્ત ચાલકબળ છે. સાચો પ્રેમ આપણી લાગણી કે ઇરાદાથી નહીં, પણ કર્મથી વ્યક્ત થાય છે. સાચો પ્રેમ કદી નિષ્ક્રિય હોતો નથી.

પ્રેમ જેટલો વિસ્તરે અને વ્યાપક બને, તેટલો તે વધુ શુદ્ધ અને ઊંડો થાય છે. પ્રેમનાં અનેક સ્વરૂપો હોય છે – બંધુપ્રેમ, કુટુંબપ્રેમ, દેશપ્રેમ વગેરે... પરંતુ સમગ્ર માનવતા માટેનો પ્રેમ સૌથી ઊંચો હોય છે. પ્રેમમાં ગરજ, સ્વાર્થ, બદલાની ભાવના, પરપીડનવૃત્તિ વગેરેને કોઈ સ્થાન નથી.

સાચો પ્રેમ અર્પણ અને ત્યાગમાં માને છે. સાચો પ્રેમ જવાબદાર હોય છે અને સ્વાતંત્ર્યમાં પણ માને છે. સાચો પ્રેમ સતત વિકસતો હોય છે, અને અન્યોના વિકાસમાં પણ મદદરૂપ થાય છે.

હિંમતવાન, નિ:સ્વાર્થી, પરગજુ અને વિકાસશીલ મનુષ્યો જ સાચો પ્રેમ કરી શકે.

Choice Is Ours To Create A World Of Joy And Happiness, Love And Goodwill

Living with Love

When we allow ourselves to understand the impact our actions have not only on ourselves but the planet we live on, we realize the necessity to take loving action. We each have the power to correct conditions within as well as to affect the world we live in.

There are so many ways to apply love in our everyday lives. Yet, if we do not take care of ourselves, it is virtually impossible to feel and share love with the world around us.

As an act of self-love, we can begin to educate ourselves and learn to take care of our physical bodies as well as keep our thoughts and feelings positive and loving. Nurturing ourselves also teaches us how to nurture life around us.

The power of love is held within each of us every moment. This wondrous energy is available merely by our use and conscious recognition. When we choose to love one another we transcend the lower personality perceptions and rise to a higher truth. We recognize our oneness, wholeness and interconnectedness.

It is in the sharing and giving of love to others that we receive the same that we give. Give love and surely you will experience love itself. Express love to the world around you and the world will reflect back to you the power of love.

Each of us desires to understand and realize this experience of love.

Just listen to the lyrics of music and you will quickly see how much the notion of love plays a part in our personal journey of life. We seek it in our families, relationships, careers, religions, hobbies, and even at times we look to nature itself. All the while, it is right within us ready to be given out and experienced.

This magnificent planet is filled with opportunities to experience love, respect, peace and joy.

When we, as individuals, realize our potential to love unconditionally, we transform ourselves and the planet at the same time. Such is the power we wield every moment of every day. The choice is ours to create a world of joy and happiness, love and goodwill.

Greatest Of All Love Is Love For Humanity

“Just as the cult of patriotism teaches us today that the individual has to die for the family, the family has to die for the village, the village for the district, the district for the province, and the province for the country, even so country has to be free in order that it may die, if necessary, for the benefit of the world.

My love, therefore, of nationalism or my idea of nationalism is that my country may become free, that if need be the whole of the country may die, so that the human race may live.

For me patriotism is the same as humanity. I am patriotic because I am human and humane. Imperialism has no place in my scheme of life.

The law of a patriot is not different from that of the patriarch.

And a patriot is so much the less patriot if he is a Luke-warm humanitarian. There is no conflict between private and political law.”

~ Mahatma Gandhi
