Sacrifice Yourself for Love

posted by Guy Finley

Real life is perfect balance. And we each get from this life exactly what we give to it… no more, no less. This is a cardinal rule, although it’s widely rejected by the masses that refuse to see where they’re responsible for what life continues to give them.

Wanting love from God, without first giving God your love, is like wanting to be in better shape before you start a long-overdue exercise program. Make no mistake about this… and anyone who tells you differently lies for the sake of some kind of personal gain. To go “up,” you must give something up of yourself; not once, not ten times, but continually.

Spirit serves those who serve it; Love comes to those who walk away from selfish acts. Kindness and patience flower only in the hearts of those who die to the cruelty of demanding that life give them what they want when they want it.

Your life, right now, is as it is because of what you are giving yourself to right now… and this kind of giving of yourself is the same as what you treasure right now above all else. You can’t go on feeling angry without giving yourself over to resentment’s reasons for the fire in you. You can’t go on feeling sad without standing in the ashes of some past event and rubbing the memory of it all over yourself. You can’t go on feeling inadequate in the company of others without measuring yourself by a set of social standards that say one’s worth is only what others agree it is… on and on and on.

So what then must one do? It’s right before you: give up what you’re giving yourself. Sacrifice it for something you love, even though there’s no “guarantee” you’ll get something back that’s “better.” Act upon the little bit of love in you that longs to grow and know the greater Love that gave it birth, and see what Love does in return. There are no maps in this uncharted country called the celestial life. But you’re not on your own if you set sail.

One last thought: stop worrying about what you can’t seem to do, and become aware of what you don’t want to do — of what something living within you clings to and won’t give up — even though you sense you must make that change. Even the smallest of lights such as this — brought into the darkness of yourself — starts a sequence of changes within that will reveal the next step in the direction of the Love you seek.

Reminded of You

posted by Guy Finley

There’s no way I could’ve known:

Every love in my life…

Every light through the trees,

Every song in my heart,

Every field in a breeze;

Everything bright and beautiful,

Kind, noble, or true,

Is there…

To remind me of you.

For Love to Last

posted by Guy Finley

Don’t try to please each other, for each of you has constantly changing pleasures. Instead, strive to please love, and in this you will please what is capable of being loved in each other. This understanding alone nourishes your love, and love, in turn will nourish your life together.

Teach and help each other to be independent. Wrongful dependency on one another breeds fear and cruelty. Instead, learn to depend on love, for love breeds love . . . and real love is always independent and kind.

Don’t try to change each other, either openly or subtly. This creates resentment. Instead, let the other find his or her way. This doesn’t mean to condone wrongness. It means don’t condemn one another for a weakness. Love never pounces.
