DAY THREE

“To love is to recognize yourself in another.”

— Eckhart Tolle

All love given is in turn, received. Let today be your turn to give. Step outside of yourself today and give love to someone else. No matter how you feel right now, you can help someone else. Pray for someone. Call on a neighbor. Walk in to a soup kitchen and volunteer. Speak kindly to someone whom others have judged not worthy of kindness. It doesn’t matter what — just do it to get outside of yourself.

We have been trapped in the cycle of a disease, imprisoned in our own worlds. We need to step out of our separateness, to break through the barrier that we have set up between ourselves and other people. Break through today, even if in a small way. You will receive in return, and you will have begun the process of reconnecting with yourself and with life. What seems like a small thing is actually like nudging a huge wheel — difficult to move at first but powerful once set in motion. Talk to someone in need. Let this person know that she is not alone, that someone cares. Do something you have wanted to do for years. Help a child. Not tomorrow. Not next week. Today. Today will start the process of love flowing — giving, and receiving.

Today, love someone else.
