Protects her child, her only child, from harm,
So within yourself let grow
A boundless love for all creatures.
Let your love flow outward through the universe.
To its height, its depth, its broad extent,
A limitless love, without hatred or enmity.
Then as you stand or walk,
Sit or lie down,
As long as you are awake,
Strive for this with a one-pointed mind;
Your life will bring heaven to earth.
From God Makes the Rivers to Flow, by Eknath Easwaran
As Meister Eckhart would say, let your soul be Bethlehem for the birth of Christ love and "Your life will bring heaven to earth". Happy Holidays with love and gratitude to all of you! Peggy
