Strength and courage

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. РLao Tzu

If you do not feel strong and courageous on your path, look within and around. Are you treating yourself and those around you with care and compassion? Or are you succumbing to fears and doubts? The choice to love may not come easy. At the beginning of anything new there are stumbles, and so practising to choose love grows stronger and easier. Over time, following the choice of the heart feels more and more natural. And this nature of following our heart follows that of our true nature. All else not of the heart, resides in the temporary, for all that transcends generations and withstands time, works in tune with Mother Nature, and this nature has its connection with the human body within the realm of the heart.
