Nurture

In the words of Jesus Christ:
Love others as well as you love yourself.
Why? Because the other is ourself.
Every situation, every circumstance, every event, every relationship is a mirror of what’s going on inside ourselves.
So, let us begin to see the world as a mirror.
Today, I will nurture the world and all my relationships with attention, affection, appreciation, tenderness, beauty and love.
Today, I will pay attention.
Attention means I will listen.
I will listen today without having the need to respond;
I will listen with the eyes of the flesh;
I will listen with the eyes of the mind;
I will listen with the eyes of the heart;
I will listen with the eyes of the soul.
Today, I will pay attention.
Today, I will also practice affection.
I will lovingly show my nurturing to others through tender touch;
Through hugs;
Through body language;
Through eye movements.
Today, I will express my affection.
Today, I will also express appreciation by noticing the good things in people;
And by telling them honestly how I noticed what is so good in them.
Today, I will express my appreciation by noticing the good things in people.
Today, I will let go of my violent mind and experience the tenderness that comes from nature, that is embodied in the feminine energy of the universe.
Today, I will experience tenderness and release tenderness to the world.
Today, I will that beauty is this tenderness;
That when I see beauty, I know it is truth;
That when I see beauty, I will know it as love;
Today, I will nurture the world and all my relationships with attention;
With affection;
With appreciation;
With tenderness;
With beauty;
And with love.
