may we consistently choose the single goal of peace
rather than multiple goals that lead to conflict;
may we continue to practice forgiveness;
may we recognize that we are united as one Self and illuminate the world with the light of Love that shines through us;
may we awaken to the knowledge that the essence of
our being is Love, and, as such, we are the light
of the world.
To really love is a great discipline, because we must love stably and consistently and regardless of whether or not our love is returned. In other words, we love despite our likes and dislikes, despite our selves or egos. We simply ALLOW love to be a transformative force in our lives. ALLOWING is the key. And this is not a passive but an active discipline... Genuine love asks for nothing in return, through it always works toward duplicating itself in others. Thus, the greatest reward for one who practices the discipline of love is that another being has been illumined by that love and is now carrying that gift to others.
