The most valuable in the world is Love!

Updated on January 17, 2016

Most valuable thing!

Pure selfless love is the essence of Life!

Which is of the ‘highest value’ in the world? Is it Diamond, Platinum, gold or real estates? Neither of the above is of highest value. They are mere material and one day it may also dwindle or vanish! “Love, pure and selfless is the valuable possession in the world. Love is also the mightiest weapon in this world! Yes, with love alone, Jesus and Buddha conquered the hearts of people. With love and non-violence, Mahatma Gandhi was able to get freedom for India from British rule. He never wielded any weapon other than love and non-violence. In fact, he never developed hatred to the British for the colonial rule. Of course, he was sad for the violent manners with which the East India Company usurped the lands and properties of native Indians. He felt sad, when Hindus and Muslims were at each other. He wanted that both communities should live amicably within India. But fate decides otherwise. There was partition and bloodshed. How many people were parted in the skirmish? Parents parted with children, wives parted with husbands. This was the result of hatred between the two communities. The migration of Hindus from Pakistan and Muslims from India was really heartrending.

In a way, the world is finding itself in a deep mesh due to the violent activities of many disgruntled elements. The main reason is utter hatred towards people of same religion albeit of different sects within Islam. Somewhere, Christians are hated to the core by Muslims and vice versa. Why to talk about different sects? Even within a family, there is no concord between different members! Then, how can you expect amity in society? Each individual is part of society; each family is part of society. When there is problem in one limb of the body, do we care less? No! When a thorn pricks the sole, the eyes pour tears! This is the inner relationship between various limbs of the same body.

The world is a mansion of God, which contains many big rooms. Each country is a room. God, being the resident of the mansion can enter any room as per his will. All rooms are his. He is at liberty to move around freely among the different rooms at any time. None can say it is wrong. Each country has constructed a mental barrier against the neighboring countries. It is more mental than physical. Of course, there are physical boundaries for each country and for the sake of governance, this is vital too. As each limb of the body is attached in a peculiar way with the main body and functions in separate ways, each country, though attached to the globe, functions in varieties of ways according to climate, geography, peculiar cultures and language. We must respect the differences between people and be friendly with one all. The only adhesive between men is ‘Love”. Hence Jesus has said, “Love thy neighbors!

There is an underlying UNITY amid the apparent diversity. Unity is god made and diversity is manmade. Today’s friends may become tomorrow’s enemies in the affairs of human race. The reason being, they never understood the common thread which unite the entire mankind in one race! Hence do not perceive differences! Rather, find out the fundamental unity of mankind! Flowers are many but the garland is One! Cows are many but the milk is one! Jewels are many but the gold is One. This is how we should seek the underlying unity among the diversity we notice in the outer world! Which causes diversity? It is the mind, which always visualize the dualities and it cannot perceive the unity.

The senses and mind are of outgoing nature and hence they run after sensory pleasures! The tongue always seeks tasty dishes. The ear too craves melodious songs. The skin seeks silken touch. The nose loves sweet scents like the flowers and other aroma which some things possess. Hence both ladies and gents are fond of body sprays. These activities please the senses. We think that the man is happy because of the sensory pleasures. But in reality, the senses enjoy man and not otherwise! This is the secret of pleasures. But, this requires great insight in the nature of senses and the pleasures derived through them. There are many examples how each one likes different tastes and foods. In North India and West Bengal, people relish sweets. Their day starts with a sweet. But people of south relish savories and hot varieties rather than pure sweets. Some may like Western music and some other may like Hindustani Music. Yet some other likes Carnatic music. Hence taste differs between people to person.

The ancient sages have found out that all pleasures we seem to enjoy from external sources are really miniscule part of the bliss of the soul. Hence our observations do not yield truth. From the mind arises, the dual identities like “Me and Mine”. This is really a false sense of identity in each being. This “My and Mine” is the cause of grief and pain in man!

      Love itself is absent in discord. We must remain ever humble to love and it's glory and power. Very interesting hub.

      Yes, I agree. Selfless love is in god's domain and we can try to eliminate the selfishness little by little. Thank you once again!
