Our Lesson

There is an assignment,
a lesson that we have all come here to learn.
It is simply this:
whatever love is in your life,
receive it,
breathe it in,
drink it in,
bathe in it,
cherish it like holy water
so that it seeps into every cell of your being.
And then take that love
and fill the biggest bucket you can find
and throw it over
everything you see
and everyone you know.
Again and again.
Until the whole world is washed
in an infinite supply of love.
-Taya Gopalpreet in the book Sutra of Stars Available Here
