For a mother and child, love is the unshakable foundation.
Imagine what would happen if we applied foundational love elsewhere. What if we felt that same bond, with strangers, neighbors, colleagues, and even adversaries. When love is the foundation, we see ourselves reflected in the others eyes. Love teaches us to be kinder and softer. It guides our actions so we become more fair and compassionate.
So when there is tension, but when love is present there is also respect and openness and understanding. Even amid friction there is peace; amid discord there is humanity.
So today as you cross paths with your fellow human beings, let love be the foundation. Whether or not there is friendship or agreement or understanding, let there be love.
