It is the season of Love with Valentine`s day coming up,and I would like to put an emphasis on the word LOVE.I believe it is exactly what is needed much more of on this earth at the moment,for it is the lack of Love,which is causing us to act in fear,anger and pain ,believing this can restore the harmony ,tranquility and Love we all so yearn for…but it is my humble belief that ONLY LOVE can bring LOVE..
I agree, it takes an enormous amount of courage to step up,reach out ,extend a hand to ‘the other’ whilst the prior offense and pain are fresh in our memory,but ‘forgiveness is light’ and by taking that ‘chance’ on forgiveness and compassion,by respecting and opening ourselves to the other,we open ourselves to join hand in hand in respect and appreciation of the greatest gift of all, the gift that GOD has given us, the GIFT of LIFE.
At the very least maybe we can begin by trying to generate as much love as possible when and where we can ,taking into consideration more and more ‘others’ ,being whom we would normally not care to think of,within our comfortable and safe boundaries,slightly stretching them as we go along..just a thought for valentine`s day.. 🙂
We are all in this together!
Bearing these thoughts in mind, I am creating a series of crocheted heart -pouch necklaces ,as gifts for Valentine`s day to sell in my online handcraft shop,while I choose to DONATE the benefit of their sale to UNICEF who is currently raising funds to purchase urgent necessities for the children of Gaza,in a symbolic effort to recreate balance of love in the world;and as an act of pure compassion as human suffering is human suffering,and we should never close our hearts to the suffering of others.
Think of it as an opportunity of offering your love to your loved one aswell as to an unknown child in need at the same time;an opportunity of aiding in restoring the balance of LOVE in this world.
