“Of course the mind can rationalize fighting back…but the heart, the heart would never understand. Then you would be divided in yourself…the heart and the mind…and the war would be inside you.” ~His Holiness the Dalai Lama

All the Things You Are .

February 14, 2019

This Sunday we will be blessed with special Valentine’s music by Amy Augenstein and her dad, Tom Williams. Their songs, “My Funny Valentine” and “All the Things You Are” inspired my talk topic this week. I will be speaking about celebrating the wonderful unique and special qualities that each and every one of us has!

I love the line in “My Funny Valentine” that says, “you make me smile with my heart.” And I love the way I can feel that – about you as well as myself! – when I am centered in my true nature.

Another line in the song is, “you’re my favorite work of art.” I invite you to reflect on the idea of being a work of art. Go further and imagine the Creator singing to you, “You are my beloved, a masterpiece.” Look at yourself through the eyes of divine Love and start smiling at all the things you are!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
