Love All Of Life

sailboatThe human spirit ranges across a truly amazing diversity of experiences and emotions - the highest peaks and the lowest valleys.

One minute we merge in awe with the compassionate creative universal force, and the next minute the imperfections of our human existence focus us toward another aspect of life.

Each of us is loving in some moments - hateful in others. Patient and calm sometimes - harried by urgency at others. Understanding - and self-absorbed. Reassuring - and sarcastic. Generous - and greedy. Trusting - and jealous. Comforting - and snappish. Original - and stuck in a rut. Thankful - and needy. Forgiving - and vengeful. Nurturing ourself - and stuffing ourself with fast food. Honoring our bodies - and overstressing. Being Joyful - and Suffering.

What does all this mean? It means only that we are human - nothing more. Our opportunity is to love ourselves exactly as we are - with all our joys and sufferings. To be grateful for everything. To forgive ourselves for our doubts of our own worthiness - for we have no need to be anything other than what we are.

Our opportunity is always to make the choice for Joy. To see the world with new eyes - open eyes - loving eyes. To choose compassion and understanding - for ourselves, our family, our friends, our community, for the whole world.

Our opportunity is to Soar our Spirit. To see Light and Joy in everything. To spread our wings and fly boldly. To give thanks for rainbows and butterflies - our symbols of renewal and rebirth. To offer daily Thanksgiving - for ourselves, our family, our friends, our community, for the whole world.

Our opportunity is to visualize a kinder world. To sing glad songs of tomorrow - imagining a world of love - of the whole world filled with love. To offer our hand... often. To breathe deeply and honor ourselves. To pause and contemplate... just because.


  1. There's a line in a song that says "I'm a million different people from one day to the next"
    It's so true that we are multi-faceted, and shaped not only by our past but also according to the present circumstances. Nobody is 'this' way or 'that' way ALL the time.
    We are contradictory as well as logical. And as deceiving as we are honest.

    AND given that we have CHOICE - not 'set' natures,then the choice can indeed be the better ways, from one moment to the next!

  2. It's been said life gives back what we put into it. Your attitude says it all. Think of the grumpy person who you can always predict will not like something and will be totally negative. They think life is horrible and they make it that way themselves!!
