A Special Promise To Be There

A Special Promise To Be There

There are a thousand things that I would like to be for you, but one of the most important is just being someone you can talk to. There are so many things I would like to do for you and so many things I would like to say and give and share. It would take me a lifetime to list all the reasons why you are so important to me. But I would like to make a special promise to be there for you too. Continue reading

Defining Kindness

Defining Kindness

written by OL and edited by MR ©

Many people will say that kindness is a manner which demonstrates itself in proceedings. But what is kindness? It is the quality of being generous, friendly and considerate, to name just a few. Another aspect is that you worry for the feelings of others and that you feel their pain along with them. It is also said that kindness tries to figure out what the situation is and produce a better outcome. Kindness shows empathy and compassion for those who are in pain, and support for those who are attempting to help those who are in need. Being kind is a very important way of giving some significance to our own lives as well as the lives of others who are around us and those that we don’t even know. Being kind also gives us a chance to interact with others better, and also to be a positive force in other people’s lives. Its true source is deep within us, and while some people are naturally kind, it’s something that everyone can develop by applying themselves to learning what it means to be kind and then by actually being kind in different situations.

How to Experience More Love in Life

More Love in Life

written by JMac and MR ©

When it comes to love everyone has a different opinion about what love is and is not. The word “love” refers to different varieties of emotional states, feelings or attitudes which range from those of simple personal pleasures or desires to those characterising interpersonal affection and many forms of profound kindness, compassion, and benevolent concern for the good of others. Love is the only thing that we can carry with us when we go, and it makes the end so easy. What most people would like is to experience more love in life.

The basis of a healthy life today is based on love, every minute, every second; we try to show others how much they mean to us. Though we can’t quantify love we know what it feels like to love and to be loved. Continue reading

Love is Nourishment in Itself

Osho_quote Love

Talk given by Osho to a group of his students in December 1987

(The talk begins with one of the students asking Osho a question)

“Beloved Master, can you please talk about the art of nourishing oneself with Love? I feel so much love for you! Is this enough?”

Osho answers with the following:

Deva Bhasha, love is never enough. There are mysteries in existence which don’t have any limitation. Love is the closest experience to understanding all those mysteries – because as far as the mind is concerned, it imposes limits; it cannot accept anything that is unlimited.

Just think of the whole universe. The mind can conceive of it as very vast, perhaps the boundaries of it are not available to us, but the mind finds it intrinsically impossible to conceive that there may be no boundaries at all, anywhere.

The universe has no boundaries; life has no boundaries. Continue reading

Jealousy is Not Necessary

jealousy is not necessary

Jealousy is Not Necessary

“What is jealousy? It’s the mind’s reaction to a loss of control, or the imagined loss of control. If you don’t have to control, you can’t be jealous, can you? Jealousy is a fascist emotion. In the realm of subtle feeling you will love your partner unconditionally. You won’t try to own them and they won’t try owning you. You will assist them to whatever is best for them in this life, even if that means they move out. Divorce is the result of unresolved control trips. Each hires a good liar and they enter a court that pretends to be interested and the control trip eventually gets sorted out. Continue reading

Beautiful Love Story

Beautiful Love Story

This story has been traveling the internet for a few days now. It is a true story of love between a man and a woman.

“I saw this elderly gentleman dining by himself, with an old picture of a lady in front of him. I thought maybe I could brighten his day by talking to him.

As I had assumed, she was his wife. But I didn’t expect such an interesting story. They met when they were both 17. They dated briefly, then lost contact when he went to war and her family moved. But he said he thought about her the entire war. After his return, he decided to look for her. He searched for her for 10 years and never dated anyone. People told him he was crazy, to which he replied “I am. Crazy in love”. On a trip to California, he went to a barber shop. He told the barber how he had been searching for a girl for ten years. The barber went to his phone and called his daughter in. It was her! She had also been searching for him and never dated either.

He proposed immediately and they were married for 55 years before her death 5 years ago. He still celebrates her birthday and their anniversary. He takes her picture with him everywhere and kisses her goodnight.

Some inspiring things he said;
“I was a very rich man. Not with money, but with love”
“I never had a single argument with my wife, but we had lots of debates”
“People are like candles. At any moment a breeze can blow it out, so enjoy the light while you have it.”
“Tell your wife that you love her everyday. And be sure to ask her, “have I told you that I love you lately?”
Be sure to talk to the elderly. Especially strangers. You may think that you will brighten their day, but you may be surprised that they can actually brighten yours

Forgiveness in Marriage

Forgiveness in Marriage

written by AB, editor MR

Is your spouse careless and inconsiderate? Does he or she hurt your feelings by doing or saying anything that you do not like? Due to the fact that women are naturally nurturing and caring, men need to learn how to become just as caring because naturally they aren’t usually that way. Unfortunately, because it requires a rather large effort to learn, they often don’t bother to do so. Continue reading

How not to be the Abuser

Written by AB

Having a relationship is an important element of human life and everybody wants a true and sincere relationship. But how many relationships are based on mutual understanding and respect? If you are in a relationship and you’d like to make sure that you are doing the right thing by your partner, ask yourself the following questions: Do you feel secure in your relationship? Do you really enjoy spending time with your spouse or partner? Do you think your partner tries to control your behavior or make you scared? Although having a sincere and loving relationship is a great blessing, not everyone goes into a relationship for the right reasons. Thus, there is a great increase in the number of abusive relationships in the recent years. This article explains how not to be the abuser. Continue reading

Princess Diana on Forgiveness

princess diana quote

Wisdom from a Princess

Princess Diana on Forgiveness

In this image we read Princess Diana on forgiveness. She herself was the most beautiful, radiant woman I had ever seen. I related to her so well, with all of her emotional turmoil and her ups and downs. She was my mentor for many years, and it broke my heart the day she died. I truly loved her. Rest in peace beautiful Diana.

Diana Spencer was a very human royal, whose only desire was to love and be loved by the man whom she married. She knew from prior to when she did marry Prince Charles of the house of Windsor that her life was not going to be easy. She wanted to back out before the wedding went ahead, but the wheels were already in motion and she had been chosen to be the one to bring in the new line of Royal children.

Princess Diana, as she became through her marriage to Charles, never really got a chance to develop emotionally. She had to live a very public life in a world that she wasn’t familiar with. She knew that her husband was involved with and loved another woman, which made her feel terribly insecure. Coping with that knowledge, let alone all of her other royal duties, would have been enough to send any young woman off the rails a bit.

Considering everything that she had to deal with, she did a wonderful job of breaking open the hearts of the British nation. She put the love back into what was once a very “stiff upper lip” society. Thank you beautiful soul.
