Give fully,
Without restraint;
Without holding back,
Without hiding yourself from the world

Open your heart,
And let the song flow out;
Even when the sky darkens,
And the melody becomes blue,
You are always
Always
Surrounded by love

So, give and receive.
And ask yourself,
At the end of each day,
As you prepare yourself for slumber:

How deeply did I love, today?

And,

How fully was I able to let go?

Wait.
Listen carefully—
It may take some time for your heart
To find the truth.
And whatever the response,
Hold yourself with compassion
And know that
Tomorrow is another day
