Love is the best gift we can give ourself and others.
This is true all year long, and especially during the holidays. Holiday giving is often associated with material presents, finding bargains, and wondering if the recipients are truly appreciative or just smiling politely. The holidays can also be a difficult time for folks due to family tension, conflicts, or reminders of those who are no longer with us.
We can all learn to improve our love. For example, authentic, pure love is free from attachment and expectation. Eventually our loving hearts will radiate like the sun, bestowing peace and love on all living beings without exception. At that time, we will have fulfilled our own wishes for peace and joy, and be able to truly benefit others.
Everyone is welcome.
