Lavish Love

Lavish Love“Greet everyone you meet with a warm smile. No matter how busy you are, don’t rush encounters with co-workers, family and friends.Speak softly. Listen attentively.Act as if every conversation you have is the most important thing on your mind today.Look your children and your partner in the eyes when they talk to you.Stroke the cat, caress the dog.Lavish love on every living being you meet.See how different you feel at the end of the day.”

~ Sarah Ban Breathnach (from ‘Simple Abundance : A Daybook of Comfort and Joy’) ~

We often think that someday we will settle old scores. Someday we will muster the courage to speak to that person. Someday we will go and have a chat with the quite lady at the end of the street. Someday we will ask for that raise we so badly deserve. Some day we will face our fears. Someday………

With the New Year at the Horizon, we are all in the new year resolution mood. How many of us make them and break them. More so because we make them out of tradition and not love.

Think and decide to do something for the sheer love of it, and see how you follow through with your decisions.

Why must we keep putting offΒ  what we can do now for tomorrow or some day??Β  In the true sense of it, this “someday” never really comes. All we have is “Today”. And if we dont do something today, we will never really get to it tomorrow either. We will still have the same excuse we have today.

I want to take the plunge and do something Today!!!

Today i want to embrace each and every person that comes my way with a Loving Smile straight from the bottom of my heart!!!

Smile

Yes, today!!

Are you with me??? Will you take this small step today in spreading the love???

We are all Beings Of Love, full of Love, just waiting to spread this Divine blessing. Let your heart feel this love, thats coming from the very core of your spiritual being and Lavish this love on all you meet and greet today.

Today is Today…this today will never come back. Make the most of it and SMILE with LOVE.

This is me Smiling at you πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

with love Zeenat

  6. Today is THE day! Very true! It hit me hard when I read it. Last one month , I wanted to reach out to a friend whom i lost out due to small difference.. every day I used to think tomorrow I will call him but the day never came……..

    • HI Lakshmi,
      Nice to see you here.
      Sorry to hear about your friend. I know how regrets can make us feel. Hence the need to do a certain act immediately as its required.
      I hope you will get many more days and chances to make the most of the TODAY!!!
      Lots of love
      Z

  12. Zeenat, my friend I am right beside you smiling in this moment…since my voice has changed I make everyone, including myself laugh…it is a new childlike voice…it is hard to communicate in words…but still smiles are understood the world over!

    I too am committed to a day, a year, a lifetime of more smiles and love and abundant blessings upon all beings!

    gentle, joyful, bouncy steps,
    Laura

  15. Smiles are actually healing and are so easy given.

    • HI Wilma,
      So easy to give..thats so true….but somehow we still find an excuse not to smile isnt it….Human interactions are unpredictable to say the least.
      Why would we want to heal ourselves and others..with this simple act..???
      Ohh..I hope all would just smile from the heart..and watch their pain just go away..

  16. Thank you for making me smile πŸ™‚

  22. This morning I was meditating on how deep, high, wide and long the love of God is for people. I drew a picture of a deep and wide well with the word LOVE written many times within the well. I filled the well with hearts, blue waves of water and bubbles. Then I wrote within and around the well the relationships I have with family, friends, groups, and ways that I love them all. The words ‘spiritual lavishment’ came to me and so I ‘googled’ and found your post. Your post and insights resonated deeply within me and I sensed the divine connection to this morning’s meditation. Feel love, know it and share it. God showed me I was doing things as chores, now do them with love and everything deepens, widens and comes alive. Thank you.

    • Oh Beverly,
      You have no idea how happy this comment of yours has made me. I feel like you were meant to land on the blog and share your thoughts here πŸ™‚ If that isnt a divine connection what is??
      Spiritual Lavishment…now thats not something someone thinks of just out of the ordinary…
      I think love of any kind can be spread and lavished on all….and the abundance of it just surrounds your life like sunlight…in all corners and cracks of your life too. You give love and you get back ten fold…how beautiful is that…
      Thank you for your lovely thoughts…and my god that picture you made..now i have got to try that…
      please do remember me in your prayers and meditations… πŸ™‚
      Much Love,
      Z~

  23. llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllloooooooooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeee julio

  24. Really great post..:)
    love is something bigger…Can we love every friends equally?I think cant…So among friends some of them get hurt because of the same love to somebody and love enlarge the thickness of pain even the problem is simple.r8?
