You can be a follower of Muhammad or Jesus or Buddha or whomever.  Always, they said that the most essential factor is to love your neighbor.  And to love you.

The minute we stop learning, we begin death, the process of dying.  We learn from each other with every action we perform.  We are teaching goodness or evil every time we step out of the house and into the street.

The purpose of life is to help others, and if you can’t help them, won’t you at least not hurt them?  I know that is a platitude, that that is sentimental and can easily be attacked.  But loving, caring is simple, and we make it complex.  Our own neuroses make it complex.

Love is always bestowed as a gift – freely, willingly and without expectation.  We don’t love to be loved; we love to love.

A wonderful realization will be the day you realize that you are unique in all the world.  There is nothing that is an accident.  You are a special combination for a purpose — and don’t let them tell you otherwise, even if they tell you that purpose is an illusion.  (Live an illusion if you have to).  You are that combination so that you can do what is essential for you to do.  Don’t ever believe that you have nothing to contribute.  The world is an incredibly unfulfilled tapestry.  And only you can fulfill that tiny space that is yours.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

If you love, you are considered naive.  If happy, you are considered frivolous and simple.  If generous and altruistic, you are considered suspect.  If forgiving, you are considered weak.  If trusting, you are considered a fool.  If you try to be all of these things, people are sure you are phony.  This flippant attitude has had much to do with the breeding of a society of detached, noncommitted persons too sophisticated to admit to their confusion and unhappiness and too caught up in ego to risk doing anything about it.  It has perpetuated isolation and devalued basic human values.  This, in spite of the fact that over the past years there has been amassed a vast scientific literature which proves that relationships DO matter, that intimacy IS necessary to sustain a good productive life, that a loving touch or a hearty laugh can heal, that positive relating BRINGS physical, psychological and mental well being.
