We are Spiritual, not Religious
By relearning loveliness, everyone and everything can flower again from within. We regain the ability to embrace all parts of ourselves, as well as all parts of the world. We can open to everything with the healing power of love.
Love can go anywhere. Nothing can obstruct it. No external condition can prevent it; no one and no thing can stop it. The awakening of love is not bound up in things being a certain way.
Our potential to love is very real and is somehow not destroyed, no matter what we experience: all of the mistakes we might make, all of the times we are caught in reaction, all of the times we have caused pain, all of the times we have suffered. Throughout everything, our potential to love remains intact and pure.
The beauty of this truth sustains a loving heart, even for the duration of a snap of a finger.
