Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
True expressions of love are said to come from a source which lies beneath words and thoughts.
— W. Timothy Gallwey
Remember when we just knew Grandmother loved us, even if she didn’t say anything? Her smile or hug said it all. We can always feel another’s love – when it’s real.
Likewise, the words of love, when they come from a heart that’s cold, don’t ring true to our ears. We hear them, but our hearts can’t feel them. So the gulf between us widens and we remain two lonely people.
Feeling true love for another may be foreign to us, and we may have to practice thinking loving thoughts and saying loving words to become familiar with the feelings love engenders. But real love lies deep within our center and only awaits our knowledge of it.
