It serves the same purpose as fire
June 21st 2018
There are many uses for fire. Fire is present in all chemical operations; it melts metal, it cooks food to make it edible, it provides heat and light, and it purifies. On the spiritual plane, sacrifice serves the same purpose as fire. Each time you make a sacrifice, you light a fire. For example, when you decide to give up a bad habit, certain matter begins to be consumed within you, and it releases an energy that fuels your endeavour. Each sacrifice is a gift you give to yourself and in exchange, you receive purer energies that enable you to go further, higher. This is why sacrifice is a magical act thanks to which you have every opportunity to build something useful, beautiful and noble, not only in your own heart and soul, but in the heart and soul of all beings.
