Giving

Offer to all joy, happiness, and love. The greatest gift we can offer anyone is our true presence.

Give the gift of stability. The one we love needs us to be solid and stable. We can cultivate our stability by breathing in and out, practicing mindful walking and sitting, and enjoying livening deeply in every moment.

Other gifts we can offer: Freedom, Space and Peace.

Cross over to the other shore…the other shore of peace non-fear, and liberation.
