Sacrifice is the firstlesson taught to the neophyte in the form of Silence and a Silent-Tongue!History is replete with examples of those who have sacrificed ofthemselves and for the Glory and the Grace of T.G.A.O.T.U. (The GrandArchitect of the Universe).St. John the Baptist, Mother Teresa, Noah, Lot, Abraham, Mary, Khadijah,Moses, Jesus, Fatima, Malcolm, Imam Ali, Martin Luther King, Imam Husain,David, Muhammad and a host of others have sacrificed for the greater cause and for themselves in varying degrees:What is the message in their actions; what is the wisdom in their actions; what isthe Light in the actions of those who sacrificed?
