Happy Valentine’s Day – Every Day!

One collective action would bring instant and lasting world peace and prosperity, yet it’s been impossible to achieve in all of human history: Love your neighbour as yourself. That’s it!

But how do we achieve that?
Loving your neighbours means loving those you are in community with and those you aren't. Those who live in your neighbourhood and those who don't. Those who work with you, go to school with you or even serve you at your local coffee shop. Loving thy neighbour does not stop with those right around your residence.
And although Valentine’s day is focused on only spoiling your spouse or partner, we suggest that you love people all around you, and not just once a year, but every day.
You can achieve that by small acts of kindness.
There are many things we can give away and all but one of them are free. Generosity!
Our time, talents, kindness, compassion, joy, and prayers are all free-flowing things meant not for hoarding but continuous sharing. We should be generous with our material wealth as well, even when it is small.
Sometimes one of the most difficult things to do in life is to smile. We are surrounded by a world filled with hate, bitterness, jealousy, envy, and violence, and we are to smile about it? The kindness that transfers to another when we genuinely smile at them has tremendous influence. Kindness and compassion are two of the most powerful weapons.
Use them daily.
And let’s start loving our neighbours, as we love ourselves!
