Speaking and Acting With Love
In challenging times, it can be hard to know what to do to help the situation. I don’t claim to have the answers, but one question we can always ask ourselves is, “How can I speak or act with love?”
When we do this we set our intention to create more peace, kindness and love in the world. Even if we make a misstep, we’re pointed in the right direction. We may still fail or be criticized. We’re all individuals with different thought systems, opinions, and life experiences. But if we come from love, we’ll know in our heart we tried our best.
We are shaping our part of the world every day with our words and actions, and when we choose the direction of love, we help create a brighter place. Seeking to add more love with each action can only move us forward toward the kind of world we envision.
We are more alike than we are different. May we help each other, be kind to one another and listen with our hearts. Rather than blaming and judging, may we work toward learning, healing and building bridges. May we let our speech be helpful, kind and true.
May so many voices speak love that the voices of hate can no longer be heard.
Here are affirmations that may be helpful reminders:
Today I seek to do the work of love.
If I’m uncertain how to help, I follow the guidance of my heart.
When I see people acting out from confusion, ignorance or pain, I seek to help us all heal and learn. We are on this human journey together.
I listen to my heart and let my speech and actions be guided by love.
