you ever been loved? I bet you have been loved so much and so deeply
that you have become blasé about the enormity of the grace it confers.
So let me remind you: To be loved is a privilege and prize equivalent
to being born. If you're smart, you pause regularly to bask in the
astonishing knowledge that there are many people out there who care for
you and want you to thrive and hold you in their thoughts with fondness.
Animals, too: You have been the recipient of their boundless
affection. The spirits of allies who've left this world continue to send
their tender regards, as well. Do you "believe" in angels and other
divine beings? Whether or not you do, I can assure you that there are
hordes of them beaming their uncanny consecrations your way. You are
awash in torrents of love.
tremendous a gift it is to get love, giving love is an equal boon. Many
scientific studies demonstrate that whenever you bestow blessings on
other people, you bless yourself. Expressing practical compassion not
only strengthens your immune system and bolsters your health, but also
promotes self-esteem, enhances longevity, and stimulates tranquility and
even euphoria. As the scientists say, we humans are hardwired to
benefit from altruism.
What's your position on making love? Do
you regard it as one of the nicer fringe benefits of being alive? Or are
you more inclined to see it as a central proof of the primal
magnanimity of the universe? I'm more aligned with the latter view.
Imagine yourself in the fluidic blaze of that intimate spectacle right
now. Savor the fantasy of entwining bodies and hearts and minds with an
appealing partner who has the power to enchant you. What better way do
you know of to dwell in sacred space while immersed in your body's
delight? To commune with the Divine Wow while having fun? To tap into
your own deeper knowing while at the same time gazing into the
mysterious light of a fellow creature?
