My Love for You This Day.



“Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. By living with you, I want to learn to love everyone and all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone and all species on Earth... This is the real message of love.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh

That's just what love is, you see.

It's not something to be owned or possessed. 

And, love isn't a small trinket to be tucked away into one of life's many pockets. 

Rather, love is a much greater 'gift' for our souls to experience.

Through it, we learn that hearts can not be blasted open ~ instead, you must "coax and nurture it open, like the sun does to a rose.” 

So, when it is that you feel a bit 'distracted' by loving,just  remember, 

"Learning how to love is the goal and the purpose of spiritual life..." — Lama Surya Das
Namaste on this, a most beautiful day ~
