Loving

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on loving, clear, center, and edge

The clear bead at the center changes everything.
There are no edges to my loving now.

I've heard it said there's a window that opens
from one mind to another,
But if there's no wall, there's no need
for fitting the window, or the latch.

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)

A Quote by Fred Rogers on longing, love, lovable, helping, loving, and help

I think everybody longs to be loved and longs to know that he or she is lovable and, consequently, the greatest thing that we can do is to help somebody know that they are loved and capable of loving.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on loving, healing, and purpose

What are you being? What are you choosing to be? Is it loving? Is it caring? Healing?You can be more of that no matter what you are doing. Yet, the magic of it is, the more of that your are BEING, the more what you are DOING will fall perfectly into place to allow you to "be" even more of that!Trust this process. It works.You will discover that forms - physical ways to "be" a thing - will suddenly start to just "show up".Beingness becomes form.

Neale Walsch

Your position never gives you the right to command. It only imposes on you the duty of so living your life that others can receive your orders without being humiliated.

A Quote by Beverly Sills on love, loving, and giving

I had found a kind of serenity, a new maturity... I didn't feel better or stronger than anyone else but it seemed no longer important whether everyone loved me or not  more important now was for me to love them. Feeling that way turns your whole life around; living becomes the act of giving.

Beverly Sills (1929 -)
