Gun violence, racism, sexual assault, climate change, bigotry, hate crimes, untreated mental health, tribalism, a culture of judgement and entitlement.

Love is patient.

Love is kind.

It is not envy. It is not boast.

Love is …

Choosing Love is Impossible if You Don’t Take Full Responsibility for Your Circumstances

In my years of personal development and professional counseling, I have learned it is impossible to legislate morality or forcibly create peace and love.

Healing comes almost immediately due to our willingness to take full responsibility for the circumstances in our lives. In that moment, we suddenly have limitless possibilities leading us to growth.

Our lives are the product of millions of choices; things we did, things we didn’t do.

You Become What You Focus On

What if we focused our attention, choices and actions on choosing love?

I am not talking about a mushy spineless form of love. Love is persistent and inherently embodies boundaries.  If we are blaming others, we are stuck.

There Is No Quick Fix for Experiencing Pain …

There is no quick fix for the pain our planet is facing. My commitment is to do my part.

So, when I discuss gun laws, mental health or victims rights; I will use love as my guide.

  • Most of all, I will do so in a way that is not self seeking or easily angered.
  • Furthermore, I won’t be rude.
  • As a result, I will trust, hope and persevere.

This is how we will shift a lifetime of pain and suffering. Through true and full personal awakening.

Choosing Love is Choosing Patience, Kindness, and the Truth

To find out if you are part of the solution or part of the problem, check out the poem below.

This is not religion.

It’s a litmus test for creating change within ourselves. As a result, we allow greater change beyond ourselves.

“Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast. Love is not proud. Love is not rude. It is not self seeking. Love is not easily angered. It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always trust s, hopes, perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8.”
