Expand the Heart

Every day, think as you wake up, today I am
fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human
life, I am not going to waste it. I am going
to use all my energies to develop myself,
to expand my heart out to others; to
achieve enlightenment for the benefit
of all beings. I am going to have kind
thoughts towards others, I am not going
to get angry or think badly about others.
I am going to benefit others
as much as I can.

  1. Beautiful quote, exquisite rose 🌹,
    We should all become as the rose, rise above our thorns to open up our hearts to our inner beauty. To exist in the now of being present, in gratitude to the sun, that brings life and gives the light to grow towards.
    The rose, as do other flowers, gives their lives once picked to bloom and bring pleasures to others.
    If we all have service to others then what a garden the world would then be.
    Have a wonderful day Eddie ❤️😘🙏

kindness is always welcome
