Ripples #571: The Work of Love!
Monday, May 3, 2010
The Ripples Project is a tribe of 25,363
who believe tiny actions create big possibilities
If you can learn to love yourself and all the flaws,
you can love other people so much better.
And that makes you so happy.
We need, each of us, to begin
the awesome, difficult work of love;
so that we can become able
to love others without fear,
so that we can become powerful enough
to enlargen the circle of our trust
and our common striving for a safe, sunny afternoon,
near to flowering trees and under a very blue sky.

What could happen if you loved your self as deeply as you love your best
What might change if you embraced every grain of your being the way a child
delights in every grain of beach sand?
As you seek deeper love for yourself this week, you will likely deepen the
love you share with others.
