Shri Gurudev Shri Prakash Ji
What is the most precious thing in the universe?
Love. Love is the most precious thing in the universe. But it is not the Love that people normally talk about. Love isn't just a momentary attraction between two people or the feeling of attachment that parents have for their children or people have for their loved ones. Love is actually pretty much the opposite of what I told above. Love isn't attraction and it isn't just attachment. Both these things are based on a relationship of give and take. You are attracted to a person because he is beautiful and the reasons parents are attached to their children is that they expect them to do the same once they become adults. But true love isn't based on give and take. True love is one where you only give. Give your love to everyone unconditionally. In today's turbulent times it's necessary that we develop this kind of love inside of us. When wars for power and resources are going on everywhere around us we should understand that these will only sow the seeds of hate. On the other hand we should also remember that those who want to stop the crisis are more in quantity then the ones who are spreading hate. They just have to love truly and unconditionally.
What can we all do for the cause of love and peace in the world? Well, we don't have to do much. A one minute prayer is something we all can do and it doesn't depend on anything other than our devotion towards this good cause. Never forget that one person who loves is more powerful than hundreds who hate each other because hate spreads disunity and love unites us all.
