True Love and Metaphorical Love

It is a famous saying of Ashfaq Ahmad that if a person kills his ego in front of one person then he has metaphorical love for that person but if he kills his ego in front of everyone, then it is a true state of love for God. Here the metaphorical love is defined as the worldly love that a person holds for his blood relations and for those people who are close to his heart. This kind of love stays in the world and does not create any spiritual bonding with the Lord. This kind of love is often two sided and is based on many benefits that a person may demand from the other. It can also last for a limited time, based on the expectations of both parties. Many poets have beautifully explained this love through their poetry and some of them have also declared that love as a false and fake love that is selfish and last for a short time period.
