Freedom in and through sacrifice

Today is a new day for me to live and breath… and sacrifice.

Today I get to choose to lay down my life, in love, for the benefit of others. There is benefit also for the one who sacrifices. When we hold so tightly to the things we hard a “right” to, we become bonded to them. We are slaves to things, concepts and ideas. If out of love we give those things up for someone else, we become free.

What and when do I need to sacrifice? If there is something that is stopping you from loving someone, then that is the “what” to be sacrificed. When? As soon as you realize it is stopping you from loving them.
