“The Profound Significance of Simply Loving My Neighbor”


“To care about people who are fearful, angry, jealous, overpowered by addictions of all kinds, arrogant, proud, miserly, selfish, mean, you name it – to have compassion and to care for these people means not to run from the pain of finding these things in ourselves.”   (Pema Chodron)



“When someone is acting difficult to love, that usually means they are needing it terribly.”   (Margaret Anne Huffman)



“If there’s a thing I’ve learned in my life it’s to not be afraid of the responsibility that comes with caring for other people.  What we do for love: those things endure.  Even if the people you do them for don’t.”   (Cassandra Clare)



“The only way that we can live is if we grow.  The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn.  The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open.  Do it.  Throw yourself.”   (C. JoyBell C.)



“Our bodies need regular washing because we get dirty every day.  But so do our hearts! Because each day, people hurt us, offend us, forget us, snub us, step on us, reject us.  But if we choose to forgive everyone every day, we cleanse our hearts!  We wake up the next morning refreshed and pure and lovely!”   (Bo Sanchez, You Have the Power to Create Love)



“I once dreamed of launching revolutions, sparking movements, mobilizing the masses, and changing everything.  Now I’ve learned the beauty and profound significance of simply loving my neighbor.”   (Jim Palmer)
