Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, pain, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love. Yeah, that's about the right ratio.

Love is the essence of reality, the energy that inspires creativity, and the source of all change and transformation. We live well only when we love well.

Look for the hidden depths in every person. Connect with their primal innocence and see yourself in the mirror of their heart.

This life, this moment, this place, this love, it is always exactly as it should be and the only way it CAN be. Begin with that and everything falls neatly and completely into place.

Whenever one move from describing to interpreting it is the beginning of Dogma. This life, this moment, this place, this love, this is beyond that seems like interpretation.

Have you ever met someone who was compassionate and understanding, loving and forgiving? 
Were they accepting of your mistakes even as they celebrated your successes? 
Did their very presence bring out the best in you and make you feel protected and cherished? 
Did you feel you could conquer any obstacle and face any fear because of their love and support? 
These are the enlightened ones pointing to the truth within us.

Live fearlessly, love completely, and question boldly. 
Never play it safe when life asks you to take risks. 
Never withhold when love asks you for radical generosity. 
And never capitulate when the mind asks you to accept easy platitudes and positions. 
Even this one.

"I was going to buy you a present but
what's the point of bringing gold to the gold mine, or
water to the Ocean.
Everything I came up with was like taking spices to
the Orient.
It's no good giving my heart and my soul because you
already have these.
So, I've brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me."  - RUMI
