“She had a habit for saying little silent prayer about the simplest every thing, and now she whispered:
-Please God! Make him think, I’m still pretty.”
the gift of Magi, by O.Henry
How can two people dedicate to each other?
Can we believe the power of love?
Of course, I won’t talk about an imaginary situation. Only I tend to criticize the reality and dream.As you know, in story of *the gift of the Magi ,one couple is determined to give up their valuable possessions for Christmas gift.Moreover,two lovers have big belief and love to overcome the poverty, but they can not afford to buy the gifts dreamed by them. The dedicated and wise wife,Della sells her beautiful long hair to buy a chain for the watch which is handed down to her husband,Jim by his grandfather. On the otherhand, Jim buys a set of combs for his lovely wife Della, and he sells his valuable watch to buy the gift desired by Della for a long time .However, two lovers don’t hesitate to give up their possessions for each other.
Today, we may not see a love like that mentioned in this story, also we can chat on the right and wrong sides of this kind of love.As you know, the new world is so far from *unconditional love. In spite of everything,sacrification and dedication in a love are so powerful feelings and special . Today,in material world, we consume love and love statements so fast. Also,love goes down easily because of preferences of humans. What are these priorities? They are money ,luxury life and selfishness. Anymore, we give up precious feelings, and we desire to have all things of world. We are in a race which is fed by dream of being rich. Furthermore, most of us are in a rush in daily life, some of us are blind to the other well-being of humanity. We forget to listen our hearts,souls during life rush. Even, our families stay behind us. Sometimes, we need to see the world by a mom-heart and a wise-dad. Remembering the childhood may heal our severe and cruel spirits, also reminds us our good deeds and wills.
Giving love and doing a help without any expectation may be an effective medicine for our wounded souls. Unfortunately,dedication is called as being a fool. Nowadays, love is worthless by the reality of world.Anyway we need to feed our souls and be useful for humanity.
Full pockets are driving the brains
Souls are in helpless pains..
Oh humans! Don’t close your ears
To the screams of spirits…
“You can’t have a physical transformation until you have a spiritual transformation.”
