Enhancing Our Love

“We all have someone whom we regard as especially precious, such as our child, our partner or our mother. This person seems to be imbued with unique qualities that make him or her stand out from others. We treasure and want to take special care of this person. We need to learn to regard all living beings in a similar way, recognizing each and every one as special and uniquely valuable. Although we already cherish our family and close friends, we do not love strangers, and we certainly do not love our enemies. For us the vast majority of living beings are of no particular significance. By practising the instructions on cherishing others, we can remove this bias and come to treasure each and every living being, just as a mother regards her dearest child.”

  • Love is the Answer

    It’s written about in songs and poetry but the power of real love goes beyond all of that.

    Loving others, learning to really cherish and appreciate others, becomes a powerful way to open our hearts and bring real happiness.

    In this way we can feel connected to others, improve our relationships and bring a much needed peace and harmony to our lives.

    If we all learn to cherish others then we can gradually create the world we long for.

    Harmony and love. It’s what we all want and need!
