Today many people are thinking about love. Here are some different quotes to think about.
The Eskimos had fifty-two names for snow because it was important to them: there ought to be as many for love Margaret Atwood
I know of only one duty, and that is to love. Albert Camus
Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with another. Thomas Merton
They invented hugs to let people know you love them without saying anything. Bil Keane
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. Lao Tzu
Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today I realized that some things in my life are changing. Tomorrow I finish my last co-mediation and will be flying on my own. It took a long time since life intervened but it is here. Some of the waiting is over. Also some things seem to be changing in other spots in my life. My anxiety is at minimum…at least for now. I seem to be at peace.
I am anxious for a dear friend who is struggling with a sick husband. It makes me realize how elusive peace is. I think too often we don’t even realize when peace comes. We can’t turn away from our focus on ourselves and the problems that life brings. Peace can be elusive. We reach the point where we don’t even recognize it..we don’t recognize it.
My life is comfortable. I am not starving, or homeless. I do not have a fatal illness. I have friends, family. My life is stable. Yes, I can spend time fighting my own demons but I need to concentrate more on the good things. I do life in a measure of peace. I need to get it.
Pay attention to the things you have and not to what you don’t have. We all have struggles….some more than others…but most of us do have something good in our lives. Find it! Find that good and concentrate on it. See it when there is peace.
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.
Thank him every day for the good things.
