December 14 - Giving the Gift of Loving-Kindness
"Each day comes bearing new and wonderful gifts, be there in the moment for your heart to receive them."
This is the time of year when joyful celebrations and embracing the spirit of giving and receiving are at a high. One of the greatest gifts we can offer during this time is the gift of loving-kindness. Research shows that the act of giving creates feelings of fulfillment, joy, and purpose. Practicing the gift of loving-kindness is a way to extend our offerings of peace, happiness, safety, and freedom from suffering to all those who need it in the world, most importantly, ourselves. The mindful awareness of loving-kindness not only allows us to feel more connected to others and reduces stress, it also works to cultivate self-compassion, appreciation, and an inner peace and love for who we really are. Loving-kindness is the most important simple of gifts that requires no money at all, but whose value is priceless.
