on this day, we celebrate romance and relationships, which can be a beautiful expression of love.

but why limit our idea of love?

love is far more vast than romance and can be found in so many places if our hearts are open to it.

it is true, that love is everywhere, and that includes our very own hearts.

we can begin there. begin by loving ourselves well, with open-heartedness, with tenderness, kindness and compassion. we too are worthy of our own love.

Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche said, “It is this tender heart that has the power to transform the world.”

true, true.

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!
