Quotes on Love

It’s Valentine’s Day once again! Celebrate love in all forms. Love yourself, your partners, your mother, father, children, friends, strangers.

Ti voglio bene -– I like you, I love you, I want the very best for you.

I love this hugging video that I posted a couple years ago on my  Italy Retreat For Women Blog.

The Free Hugs Campaign was started in Australia in 2004 by a man with the pseudonym of Juan Mann. Around the world, he traveled holding up a sign that announced, “Free Hugs”.  Abracci gratis (free hugs) were being given away  in Sondrio, Italy in this video.  At first people seemed suspicious, but once the ice was broken, there was real joy and connection.

Today is a Rumi kind of day!

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
~ Rumi

And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth,
You owe me.
Look what happens with love like that.
It lights up the sky.
~ Rumi

But listen to me. For one moment
quit being sad. Hear blessings
dropping their blossoms
around you.
