A young soldier went to his senior officer and said, ” Sir, my friend is not yet back from the battlefield. I request permission to go out and get him.”
The officer said, ” Permission refused. Your friend is most probably dead. I dont want you to risk your life going there.”
The young soldier went all the same and came back mortally wounded and carrying the corpse of his friend.
The officer was furious. He shouted, ” I told you he was dead. Now I have lost the both of you. Tell me, was it worth going out there to bring a corpse?”
On the verge of dying, the soldier replied, ” It was, Sir. When I got there he was still alive. He said to me, I was sure you would come.”
True love is like a communion. It is a kind of resonance between two beings. It doesnt look for utility. It operates on sheer trust and is beyond space and time.
