"LOVE AND TIME". Parable.

"LOVE AND TIME". Parable. 


A long time on Earth there was an island on which all human values ​​lived. But one day they noticed how the island began to go under the water. All the values ​​sat on their ships and swam away. On the island there was only Love. She waited until the last, but when there was nothing to wait for, she also wanted to sail away from the island. Then she called Wealth and asked for him on the ship, but Wealth answered: 
"There are many jewels and gold on my ship, there is no place for you here." 
When the Sorrow ship sailed past, she asked for her, but she answered: 
- I'm sorry, Love, I'm so sad that I need to always be alone. 
Then Love saw the ship of Pride and asked for help from her, but she said that Love would break the harmony on her ship. 
Joy floated nearby, but she was so busy with fun that she did not even hear about the calls of Love. 
Then Love completely despaired. But suddenly she heard a voice, somewhere behind: 
- Let's go, Love, I'll take you with me. 
Love turned and saw the old man. He drove her to the land, and when the old man swam away, Love remembered, because she forgot to ask his name. Then she turned to Cognition:
"Tell me, Cognition, who saved me?" Who was this elder? 
Cognition looked at Love: 
- It was Time. 
"Time?" - Love repeated, - But why did it save me? 
Cognition once again looked at Love, then into the distance, where the old man had left: 
- Because only Time knows how important Love is in life. 

"The time will come, you will leave all, and everyone will leave you. Friends will forget. You will not need wealth. Beauty will fade, there will be no strength, the body will dry out, and the soul will plunge into darkness. Who will stretch out your hand in this darkness and solitude? Only Christ is a man-loving person, if you loved him in your life. He will lead you out of darkness to light, from solitude to the Heavenly Cathedral. Think about it day and night and strive for it. And may Christ help you, King of love. Amen".

St Nicholas of Velimirovitch
