Family…the nucleus of the world.
How can we love people across the
globe when we can not get along
with our family? Let us look at
our values in the relationships
closest to us. Do we practice
compassion, patience, affection
with our family members? Do we
forgive and also ask for forgiveness?
Is integrity–I say, I do, a cornerstone
of our system of values? Unconditional
love is the practice and goal of all
actions we make, including those with
our family. Look closely at your
relationships with your family members
for they say a lot about where you are
A favorite quote of mine, which is by Ram Dass, said that if you want to know how spiritually evolved you are, spend a week with your family.
