may it begin with me

lovely Dar shared this quote on his blog and it has inspired me so much i wanted to share it. the concept~~that everyone is desiring to either love, or be loved (seems obvious enough, but this encapsulates it so simply and succinctly)~~has opened my eyes in the past few days in a way they weren't before. .

You can help transform the planet. It does not take many people focused on love to change the destiny of mankind, for love is one of the most powerful energies of the universe. It is thousands of times stronger than anger, resentment or fear.
For a moment, think of three people who could use your unconditional love, and send it to them. Imagine there are three people you would be willing to receive unconditional love from, and open to receive it.
Can you imagine how it would feel if your heart were open, if everywhere you went, you trusted, were relaxed, and knew that the universe was friendly? How would your life flow if you believed that your inner guidance was gentle and kind, and that people were sending you love wherever you went, and that you yourself broadcast a beam of love like a circle around everyone? How would your life change if whenever someone said something to you, no matter how it came out, you could recognize the love or need for love behind it? You would be constantly looking deeper to acknowledge and recognize the love within each being. By your recognition of love, you would bring it out and attract it to yourself.
As you go out to the world today, be aware of how you can express love through your eyes, through your smile, your heart, and even a gentle touch if it is appropriate. You came to earth as a community and all of you can send out a high loving feeling, a thoughtform of love, and offer it to each other. For the rest of today, be in your heart. Experience the love that is you, and as you do, be open to receive the acknowledgment of the beautiful light and love within you from others.

Homework: Think of some way you could surprise and delight someone tomorrow with an expression of your love.

and something Ben shared with me; the notion that Love is a verb in most cultures, not a noun. Love is action, not a feeling. You Do what you love, your actions show what you truly love, you Care for those you love. Feeling "love" for something or someone and not acting on that feeling is not Love, but a cop-out. And what exactly is that cop-out, how can that knowledge improve your life?
