love thursday 05.27.10 ~ practice

It is not enough simply to wish that love and compassion should increase in us. We need to make a sustained effort, again and again, to cultivate the positive aspects within us – and the key here is constant familiarity. The nature of human thoughts and emotions is such that the more you engage in them, the more you consciously develop them, the more powerful they become.

~ HH Dalai Lama ~
And so I continue to commit to the practice of Love. Even when I don't feel like it. Even when I am not good at it. I come back to wanting to practice Love.

Join me?

Constant familiarity. So it becomes an instant response, the first response, in the face of adversity. I like that. Thank you for sharing this teaching.
