we have the incredible privilege of using our words and our actions in a way that embody love and benefit this world. no matter the size of our platform, or the reach of the light we shine, when we speak we can ask ourselves, “is this love?” and when we act we can ask ourselves, “is this love?”
each word, each action is a seed planted. are we planting seeds that harm and destroy or seeds that benefit and heal? what example are we setting? are we embodying love?
emotional maturity is a practice. speaking and acting with responsibility is a practice. nonaggression is a practice.

One thought on “are my words love? are my actions love?”
Asking ourselves such questions is a wonderful practice. So is restraint of tongue and pen something I used the other day. I felt the habitual urge to react to a verbal assault rather than question the causes and conditions of that person’s unhappiness. Then one can bring the heart practice in….once we have swept out the old habitual thought loops.
