All You Need Is Love

Digital Mandala by Kate Jobe 2/2010

The web of life grows stronger and more magical when woven from threads of love. With the affirmation of love, the world shines brighter, the compulsion to laugh is more prevalent and boredom ceases to be a component of your vocabulary. Love is returned in direct proportion to the love that is extended toward others.... Sometimes the presence of love goes undetected because it does not arrive in a form dictated by a yearning. Love arrives and reaches out to us every day in many ways. Nature reaches out in love in the luscious scent of a flower; the unexpected song of a bird; the breathtaking beauty of the sunrise of a new day. All around, people extend love with passion that may be missed: in the dedication and admiration of an employee; through the genuine respect and appreciation of a student; the thankfulness of a stranger for the simplicity of a "minor" compliment or kindness; the unabashed guileless love that radiates from a child's eyes and in their loving hugs. Pay attention to all moments that have heart and meaning. Scoop them up and hold them in your heart.
