The Hazard of Paid Jobs

All paid jobs absorb and degrade the mind.



Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.

(Mother Teresa)

Loving is Sharing

In true love, life must be shared.

Illness, wealth, bodily suffering, happiness, joy, and sorrow must all be shared. Whenever there is love in which the husband and wife do not share everything equally, that love is born of selfishness.

Only when everything is shared can it be called true love.

(M.R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen)

No Attachments

When we do our duty to others, to the human race, we must do it without attachment, without selfishness, in the proper way, expecting no reward.

Act that pours forth like this is an act of true love.

(M.R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen)

A Broken Love

If we pursue God, worship Him, ask Him for favors, for property, money, possessions, a baby, great titles, a kingdom, or even for heaven, if we love God with interested motives, with selfish love, that love will break down. It is a broken love...

(M.R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen)
