If we want to build a better world, if we want to see a more humane society and be part of it, we have to begin with ourselves, and with out own hearts, and not leave them behind.
In each day, in each moment, we have the opportunity to open our hearts more fully to the love and compassion that flows through them naturally. These qualities come from your soul. Love is how you were made. Compassion is a derivative of love. And so in each day we can go through the day with a kind of loving softness toward ourselves, toward others, or we can forget about this quality of life, and become busy, and task focused, and forget that there is another approach to how to live.
