My heart overflows with emotion this morning. It is almost indescribable what I have been given; I cannot even comprehend the beauty and love that I am feeling today. My hands naturally fold into prayer, my eyes brimming with tears flowing freely, just pure gratitude.
In this little garden home I have cherished in Bali, where I have had so much time to reflect upon things, I am pretty sure I have learned the secret to life. It is LOVE.
I know it is an overused word, in many ways, yet love is all there is. It is everything that matters.
Sometimes I imagine a world where everyone takes just a moment to help a little, like watering that wilted plant in the office or petting the dog wagging its tail.
Everywhere we go, everything we do is, on some level, a search for love. Receiving love is the goal. Why else would we have such a need to be accepted, to impress, to improve? It is to find and win love, from our peers, parents, our children, colleagues or even strangers. We desire to have that warm inner feeling of acceptance.
