I am open to receiving Joy, Love, Peace, Happiness, and Serenity
Love can go anywhere. Nothing can obstruct it. When we feel love, our mind is expansive and open enough to include the entirety of life in full awareness, both its pleasures and its pains. We neither feel betrayed by pain or overcome by it.
No external condition can prevent love. No one and no thing can stop it. The awakening of love is not bound up in things being a certain way.
– Sharon Salzberg*, Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness
I am larger and better than I thought. I did not think I held so much goodness.
