Love is a Verb

I still love this song and the kids I created it with.  If you are receiving this by email and a video does not appear below, please read this post here:  (And thank you for subscribing!)  The video below was edited by then 9-year-old Kasper Packford and the music was performed entirely by children from across the globe.

Sweet, eh?  So, how then do we spread the Love?
Creating a just and loving world is easier than we think. It begins with connecting with the magnanimous and awe-inspiring natural world around us….

… and by appreciating the simple blessings of each day – breath, body, light, moon, ….  It begins with opening our hearts. (Explore some techniques for doing this here.)
Our own well-being is intrinsically linked to the well-being of the world around us, and cultivating joy is key to making the world a better place. But we cannot be so obsessed with our own happiness that we forget that we are one.

Spontaneous hugs, random acts of kindness, tender and truthful words, voluntary simplicity, and conscious, grassroots community action – these are the kinds of things that are healing us as a people and a planet.
May you feel the Love today, and all-ways,
Happy Valentines Day!

Lovely Oona! I'll encourage breathing through your 'Dream Deep' site, as I remember the song you taught me in Hilo ... 'Keep breathing, it's the most important thing.'
Aloha is a verb.
