When we do the hard work of stilling the mind and opening the heart, we come into love. First we love within, then we love the world. First we forgive ourselves, then we forgive others and life itself…
Real love of others stems from love of oneself as a soul – not ego loving ego, but soul loving soul.
Love is a deep feeling grounded in action.
Love is the fruit of heartfulness.
