The word for the day is love
“Love yourself. Forgive yourself. Be true to yourself. How you treat yourself sets the standard for how others will treat you.”
― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience
“It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.”
― André Gide, Autumn Leaves
“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
― Dr. Seuss
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
― Lao Tzu
Your Daily Now Moment!
... sharing this moment.
Here are three quotes and a thought of mine (remember back to Ajahn Chah's goblet) that I hope will bring you joy today:
"There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way."
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."
~ Dalai Lama
"As soon as we wish to be happier, we are no longer happy."
~ Walter Landor
"It is what it is, while it is."
~ Elisha Goldstein

Every thought that you think is vibrating at a very personal frequency . . . and by the powerful Law of Attraction (the essence of that which is like unto itself, is drawn), that thought is now attracting another thought that is its Vibrational Match. And now, those combined thoughts are vibrating at a frequency that is higher than the thought that came before; and they will now, by the Law of Attraction, attract another and another and another, until eventually the thoughts will be powerful enough to attract a "real life" situation or manifestation.
