Love and The Golden Rule

Blog 31

It’s Valentine’s Day and our thoughts are focused on the subject of love.

Bunches of red roses and bigger and more elaborate cards abound – for that special person, the one you love.

Not everyone is going to be the recipient of such Valentines Day gifts so let’s broaden our focus to unconditional love, the kind of love that is not dependent on romance and is freely available to all.


The Golden Rule says, ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’.

I imagine we all want to be loved unconditionally.

But can we really love someone else if we don’t love yourselves?

So how can we be more loving towards ourselves?


You can take some time to BE, just be with you.

Be kind, gentle, forgiving.

Shed a tear if need be.

Feel what it’s like.

When you have that lovely soft feeling, embrace yourself with your heart and soul.

Now you can share that very special love in the world.

Now you can, ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’


When my mum had advanced Alzheimer’s she became very loving. She told me:

‘Love is what it is.’

‘The stillness of deep love, I can’t find words to describe it.’

‘I love everyone.’

‘Love never dies.’
