qualitative! no "more" needs to be said Sep 16, 2006
it's a matter of absorption. the reviewer that needed "more" needs to absorb and embody what has necessarily SPARINGLY uttered.
A good start...but much more needs to be said. Mar 26, 2005
This book is a devotional book of sorts, published by a Muslim society in the United States. The author is a Sufi mystic from Sri Lanka.
The author advocates compassionate love as an instance in the ray of God's infinite love. The author's intent is to "lighten your heart, a map to help you find the treasure hidden within you. That treasure contains the most valuable and elusive things in life which everyone seeks but very few ever find -- unconditional love, everlasting youth, and unchanging truth" (ix).
Muhaiyaddeen suggests that the only kind of love that is truly beneficial is selfless love. "Unless love is connected to God, unless it is connected to truth, to compassion, to justice, and to grace, it is possible for it to breakdown" (7). God's love must take shape within humanity, which means that divine love must form in human hearts. Such love includes the suffering with those who suffer and selflessly giving to those who are in need. "We must draw that grace and that treasure within us. This love is true love, the love borne of faith and trust, the love borne of brotherly unity, the love that comes from being one family, the love that comes from prayer, the love that comes from merging with God, the love which has no limit" (20).
The author argues that love entails relationships with others. "Once you have God's love, God's qualities, and God's actions, everyone is connected to you, and therefore you will feel the suffering no matter whose it is" (24).
