Today we celebrate Valentine’s Day, but do we only turn up the volume of our love meter on this day? Can you imagine how much more tranquil and united we would be if we gave the gift of love each day as passionately as we do on this 14th day of February? Imagine that?
Love needs no introduction or explanation. It is felt and not seen, yet shown through unselfish acts of kindness and giving.
This time each year, when I read greeting cards or listen to people’s perspective of why we celebrate the Fall/Winter holidays as we do, the same thing is repeated year, after year, after year…like a memorized speech.
Are the spiritual virtues of Thanksgiving, peace, love, and joy only unwrapped and dusted off for perhaps a couple of weeks…maybe…and then back in the box they go? Do we only express our love and affection on Valentine’s Day? Do we only recognize giving thanks and giving back on Thanksgiving Day? Do we only recognize and embrace joy and peace on Christmas Day?
Instead of showcasing these important characteristics primarily during the holidays, why not put these spiritual elements into play every day? Can you imagine how much better humanity would be?
