“The practice of cherishing can be taken very deeply if done wordlessly, allowing yourself to feel the love and appreciation that already exists in your heart”.

The Dalai Lama
Dear one, Cherie, Cheri
Let us cherish ourselves
And others today
And every day.
Hold your self near and dear
Care deeply for those you love.

Be loving to everyone you meet
Let kindness shine from your heart
And show in your eyes
See it be reflected
in the eyes of others

It is always there.
Love is in our hearts and in the air.
No purchase required.
Breathe it in with lightness and joy
Breathe it out and send it far.
Let it touch all who need it most.

A never ending cycle of love
To replenish and nurture ourselves
And the world.

Namaste 🙏
