Better (Off)

Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find
all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it

In the pedantic game of tennis “love” is a score of zero. Implying that when we’re in love the score is even, our hearts are content and all is well in life. However, how often do we keep a competitive score in our relationships with those who love us, the person next to us in yoga class, running a race  Who can find the best parking spot this holiday season?

Instead of comparing myself constantly and competing against others I challenged myself  to compare “me” in this moment, to the person I was one year ago. Am I kinder, happier, more confident and peaceful? If not, I take a deep breath to explore what has caused me to lose focus, and how I might learn moving forward.

I’ve found that by trying to keep the score zero in my life, trying being a key word By giving generous doses of gratitude, making caring gestures to other(s) daily, witnessing the passion and abundance growing around each one of us? Is an inspiring “thing“.

Daily Love Meditation:

Keep a loving score today. Count how many times you utter something loving and positive

  1. Did you write the first quote that’s in bold? I love those words! Great post altogether!

      This is a short passage from one of my favorite mystics and poets – Rumi.
      I meant to change it from bold, but I forgot and needless to say I’m happy you really like it. 🙂

  2. I think it found me one more time,

  3. Keep a love count. Brilliant.

  5. Maia says:

    Aaahh… Rumi… …

    When I go back to the whole day of today… the score goes back to zero. =)
    I don’t really want to count… think that’s all right, too.

    The only person you should try to be better than, is the person you were yesterday… Don’t know who said it, but your words were a great reminder. Thank you 🙂

      These may read as being cheeky or self serving – Its because of kind passionate readers such as yourself, that I openly share with you. 🙂
      Be well today and please take care!
