Have you ever had a puppy lick your face? Then you have experienced pure love … love without conditions. In that simple gesture you feel the flow of goodness and acceptance of who you are, with no concern for what you may have done in the past or what you have to give them. They wish only to show you how very special you are to them.

This kind of love is yours to give as well. It is far from the human kind of puppy love, which is all chemicals and all selfish needs. Be as the puppy. See in others only loveable beings who need your love, and give it to them as a smile, as a hug, as a loving phrase, or as a beam of radiant love-energy, expecting nothing in return.

You can teach an old dog new tricks. It matters not how old you are—be as the puppy and bring a smile to all you meet today.
