Marinate in love.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

Many parts of our lives aren’t exactly as we might wish. Interactions with others can be less than ideal and events can play out in undesired ways. Sometimes it’s a challenge to appreciate what is.

We may aim to be kind and caring, but can find it difficult in the face of disillusionment and disappointment. When we feel guarded and stressed, how do we bring our compassion into play? How can we be the best versions of ourselves?

Love in some form is always the answer to any problem. The challenge is how to bring it into everyday circumstances.

Today’s message invites me to have a regular practice to foster feelings of live inside me. I can well wish a friend with difficulties. Or I can visualize kindness prevailing in social/political conflicts. Or I can simply feel non-specific love for all Creation. Any focus that strengthens my capacity to love will help me bring it more fully into my daily life. Love is mojo to make my life beautiful and meaningful.

How about you? Do you have a practice to strengthen your ability to love?
