friendship-824253_1280We live in a world which claims to be at the peak of globalization – where communication happens with just a touch of a button. But at the same time we are hopelessly running a rat race where we frantically want to achieve the most and be better than others. Amidst all this, what has got lost is our innocence and the power to love and trust each other. We have become egocentric and therefore we have forgotten to put the interests of others before our own.

Saint Paul, a life coach says that if we speak in the divine language but there is no love in it we would sound like a clanging cymbal. He goes on to speak of other heightened aspects portrayed by humans and  reiterates that without the inclusion of love, we are nothing. This has really meant a lot to me as throughout my life I have felt the need to portray love along with a good purpose. Love gives a concrete shape to our works and it doesn’t make us look ritualistic and fake. Further the description of love by the saint amazes me and I have found myself celebrating with him by realizing the strength of love. He says, that love is patient and kind and doesn’t envy or boast. It is not arrogant or rude. It does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices with truth. It is neither irritable nor resentful. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes and endures all. It never ends. Among the three most important entities namely Faith, Hope and Love, Love is the greatest.’

Therefore, my friends, never cease to love as it has the power to perform miracles. Love can for sure, work miracles even in this age of globalization!
