This simple but profound thought from spiritual teacher Hugh Prather reminds us of a way of seeing that can change our world.
If you would like to see with the eyes of love, read this short but inspiring piece here:
I am called to a great wedding. I am asked to embrace Life everywhere I look. Life’s vision sees the threads of innocence woven through all people and things, like a shaft of light falling across treasured objects long hidden in darkness. Because I am real, and because Life is real, I must already be a part of Life, and it is a part of me. There is a place in me so harmless and still that all fear has dropped away. As snow unifies a landscape and moonlight transforms it, today my vision will arise from this place, and it will blanket the world in peace.
