By doing what your lover wants, you transcend yourself. So it is with all sacred deeds. We give ourselves over to them, humbly offer ourselves as servants of something or someone greater. In so doing, we are transformed.

Lawrence Kushner in Invisible Lines of Connection by Lawrence Kushner


To Practice This Thought:
Make a sacrifice for a friend or lover with the understanding that such giving is also extended to God.
