When we reach out in compassion and love to other people, we are filling the space that surrounds them–and us–with love. We are creating a space of love. We are rooting ourselves in love and hospitality.
". . .and the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles, no matter how long, but only by a spiritual journey, a journey of one inch, very arduous and humbling and JOYFUL, by which we arrive at the ground at our own feet, and learn to be at home."
this quote is a beautiful start to the week x
One of my prayers is: Please give me a heart of love – for my husband, my children, my readers, my listeners, and all whose lives may touch mine.
I am amazed how often and how well this prayer is answered. And I am exceedingly grateful.
Beautiful quote on the meaning of love, and I love Lois’ prayer. xo
yup, marie, that’s what it’s all about. i think of love sometimes as a beautiful light, capable of travelling beyond the speed of light, to send straight to the hearts of whom we wish it to land upon. it’s the most powerful, the most meangingful expression of our humanity, the one power that cannot be extinguished by warfare, by oceans between us, by pestilence, illness or death. pretty damned wonderful, isn’t it. i;m sending it to you right now!
thank you all for your beautiful words – so full of compassion and love – you enrich this blog beyond measure x
What a wonderful quote about reaching out to others and creating a space for love. Thank you for a wonderful start to the week.
