The Beatles sang it and we all know and feel it. Love is what uplifts us, what gives sense to our lives. It doesn’t matter if it self-love, love to our partner, friends, parents or humanity. Love is love!
"In love we honor. In love we grace people. In love we support. In love we sacrifice. In love we give. In love we elevate. In love we pray.” said once Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga. It’s easy to say “Love!” but how do we do it? How to we feel it? How w attract it. Connection is in our hearts. The answers to these questions are in our hearts.
