Pure Love

Pure love is matchless in majesty; it has no parallel in power, and there is no darkness it can dispel. It is the undying flame that has set all life aglow, yet it must be kindled and rekindled in the abysmal darkness of selfish thoughts, selfish words and selfish deeds. – Avatar Meher Baba.

Hello friends, I read the above quote and got myself to think about pure love and its existence. How can we tell that when we love somebody, it’s pure? The foremost characteristic of the said emotion is selflessness. That means you are ready to sacrifice anything for the person you love and you put the interest of that person above yourself.

Pure love doesn’t require the outer expression of the emotion, it’s the silent devotion and dedication for the Beloved, which matters. True love doesn’t manifest itself accurately in happier times, we come to perceive the actual intensity of it at the time of crisis. Being there for each other through thick and thin like a rock, is real love.

The person is really unfortunate who has kicked the pure love away for his or her own selfish reasons. When the awareness sets in, it might have been too late to salvage the situation. In this context, I must tell you about the couplet of the famous poet Rahim of the Mughal era, ‘Rahiman dhaga prem ka, na toro chatkai. Tutey pe fir na jurey, jurey gath par jay, it means that according to Rahim, love is like a string, don’t break it at your whim. Once severed can’t be tied, if you do tie it back, there would be knots.

We always complain that we are not loved as much as we desire but do our love reaches up to the same parameters? Love has the power to melt the heart of a stone and make the person reciprocate it equally. Maybe sometimes we get disappointed by the selfishness or the self-centredness of the person in question and feel heartbroken. But scepticism shouldn’t creep in and tend to digress from the path of love, it may come calling in another manner and form.

Friends, it’s always true that love can make the world go round. A sweet smile, a gentle word or a caring act can pacify many grudges and grievances one nurtures in their bossom, silently. As the heat and light of the sun go hand in hand, so do love and sacrifice. Some sincere efforts and gestures go a long way in spreading love and amenity.

Keep the light of true love burning bright, act as a beacon in a lighthouse, it may help many lost souls to find their way back to home

Wishing for love and peace for all.

  2. In reality, love is pure only, other wise it is not love. God is love, that we all believe.
    And God is obviously Pure.

      1. Gratitude to you for a great post and quotes of Meher Baba.
        I have gone through his vast Text. It is similar to Vedanta philosophy.
        There I have seen that how Consciousness is growing up step by step from matter to plant kingdom to insects to animals to mammals to human, super Consciousness. Entire text has graphical presentation.
        I have kept the Text aside for further studies.
        Kind regards to you๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™

    1. Thankyou Cheryl. It’s the love which makes the world a happy place to live. Sadly some people are resorting to violence to win a piece of land, will it make them happy after killing and making so many people homeless in the freezing cold?
      Wishing for restoration of peace and amity for all๐Ÿ™

      1. The conflict is causing distress to people all over the world and weighs heavily on my mind, My next-door neighbors are Ukrainian-American, and my children were adopted from Russia. My son is afraid he may be attacked because of his Russian heritage, even though he has been a US citizen since he was six years old. This war is so senseless and brutal, and yes, I hope it ends soon!

      2. You are absolutely right, the conflict is causing a lot of distress to the innocent civilians. It’s always the citizens who have to bear the brunt. I also hope that it ends soon.

  3. Perfect love, cast out fear. 1 John 4: 18.

    When you have total love, faith, trust and hope in God and his words, there will be no need for you to fear anything anymore, the devil feeds on your fear, the devil is a predator and he preys on your fear, for you not to fall as his prey, you need to pray, praise and fast on to God to strengthen you in his spirit and his words.

    When you protect yourself with Gods shield and put on his armour of prayers and knowledge of his scriptures, you become a threat to the prince of darkness/ satan, when you are strong in God, then you will be able to destroy a full battalion of demons, even at your weakest moments, the devil knows what you are capable of doing, when you know what you are capable of doing, that is why he puts fear in you to stop you from knowing your full potential because it will be destructive to his wicked agenda.

    Example of perfect love is, when God gave his only son to die on the cross of cavalry to wash away the sins of humanity, so that, we will not be put to eternal punishment, when you realize that, you are saved already because now you will know that, it is not about guarding your human life anymore, it is about saving your soul from condemnation eternally, take a chance with God today and watch him turn your life around, you will feel very light hearted, because, the Lord will take away all your burden and wash your sins away, you will feel brand new, like a new born baby with no worries in the world, that is why it is called being saved or being born again, may God open our minds to heed his words and apply them to our lives for us to be counted among the numbers, when the saints go marching in, Amen!!!
