Love conquers. But where there is fear, love cannot grow. Love shines. It makes everything possible for us. It gives us everything. It makes our lives possible. It makes us vulnerable. Love is trust. It opens our minds.
Love cures fear. It tears down barriers. It construct bridges. It brings people together. To be real, we can’t really function without love. Wow!
“What is love? The total absence of fear.”
Anthony de Mello
Life is love. It is better to love than to hate. It is better to love than to be greedy. It is better to love than to condemn. It is better to love than to judge people who are not like you. We are one. We are here on earth to make it a better place. Instead of tearing ourselves down, why not practice the art of love?
Choose to be good to yourself. Whatever you do, love it. Wherever you are, be there. You are here on earth for a purpose. Your job is go after that purpose. Your job is not to close your eyes, but to open them to opportunities. As the saying goes, “Opportunities are everywhere.” It is true, but if you don’t open your eyes, you can’t see anything.
It is not what you look at that matters. It is what you see that matters. To see yourself, you must be closer to yourself. You must appreciate your life. You are not here to occupy people’s spaces, but to occupy your own space. Your space is your space. It belongs to you.
You are who you are. Don’t change anything about yourself. Love everything about yourself. If you are a small person, celebrate it. If you are a short person, appreciate it. If you are not too smart, there is a reason for it. If you are not rich, celebrate what you have. Enjoy what you have, and more will come to you.
Again, as the saying goes, “If you celebrate what you have, you will have more to celebrate.” No matter what, my friend, always celebrate your life. Because if you don’t celebrate what you already have, you will have little to celebrate in the future. Be grateful for your life. If you cannot be good to everybody, be really good to yourself. Can you?
