Reclaiming Valentine’s Day



Is Valentine’s Day only an occasion for those folks paired in a starry eyed relationship or a relationship that needs the help of a heart celebration?  

I believe not. Why not reclaim the “Hallmark” card occasion for whatever or whomever you love? Choose one or all of the suggestions or add your own.

Love children
Love animals
Love yoga
Love meditation
Love healthy food
Love fresh air
Love a strong body
Love nature
Love this world
Love this moment

Be a lover of life and lover of self for this is the unconditional love that grows compassion and care for all sentient beings. Gaze at the world with love and love shines back on you on this and every day.

As the Grateful Dead sang, “Wake now discover that you are the eyes of the world.”
