As we mentioned there are many relationships in life, marriage, friendship, parental, brotherly, God…
In each of these relationships sacrifices are made. These sacrifices are what you are willing to give up to make this relationship whole. One plus one equals whole. This relationship is not about you, but about the two of you.
So, look at an important relationship you have. What is it that you need to give up, to bring it to the next level of Love?
Remember, love is not always a warm and fuzzy feeling.
Making sacrifices are not about “tit for tat”. You don’t always give something up and expect the other to be giving something up too.
On a spiritual level, sacrifices are not always about helping others. Giving something up in a relationship can greatly benefit you as well. Giving up the need to be right, giving up the need to look good, giving up and sacrificing because you love the person and don’t expect anything in return.
Another one is trusting the other person has your best interest in mind. Even though your mind says otherwise can also be seen as a sacrifice.
Love & Peace,
