Loving without fear of our relationships going pear-shaped becomes natural and easy when we understand that with pure love, our interactions with others are win-win. Much of our stress, tension and even depression originate in our mind from being excessively caught up with ourselves. Learning to think differently, yet skillfully, with kindness and warmth, is liberating.

In Buddhism, wisdom and compassion are said to be like the two wings of a bird, our wisdom realizing who we really are and our compassion reaching out to others. These two inner qualities complement each other, flying us to a place of increasing fulfillment and joy.

Guaranteed to give you food for thought and put a smile on your face!
