Between the sea and the sky
It is written between the sea and the sky,
within the horizon rest, that word.
The word neither science nor religion can make sense of
The word to end or start all wars,
the word we use to
express something greater then ourselves.
The word we die for, we love for and ironically
look for when it cannot be seen.
It is written on pillows so we dream of it and
written over the stars so we can wish for it.
So when we look closer, just a little bit closer,
we discover it has always been within us.
Buried deep inside our biology, our existence,
just look a little closer-for all that we are and
all that we will ever be is LOVE—Robert M. Drake

Love each other as God loves each of you, with an intense and particular love

I read Mother Teresa’s book No Greater Love and it profoundly changed my life.
I learned how to sit in silence with someone that is suffering.
I learned to overlook expectations both of myself and of others.
I learned also that everyday we do experience little surprises/miracles that make us think we are special.
I learned and reaffirmed what I already knew which is kindness matters it always matters.
But most of all I learned that being kind to ourselves is very important.
