How to Love and Mean It

You can create your own purpose. You don't have to wait for it to grab you by the collar...

I read a lot online about how we must love each other, especially now, during such troubling times.

 Sure. Why not?

But loving is not writing a Facebook post or a tweet. That may get a conversation going but it's also necessary to get up, walk away from the computer, put the smart phone or tablet down and involve yourself in the world.

I suggest VolunteerMatch.org to start. Just about anything you could want to do will probably be available on that site. You can localize it to whatever region of the US or Canada you're in. If you don't find what you're seeking there, move on to other sites.*

The world is looking and waiting for whatever it is you have to offer.

It's always easy to voice an opinion. And they're worth just about nothing. Stepping up and putting that opinion to work? Well, that's another--powerful--story.

If you mean it when you say love one another, then do as Meister Eckhart, 14th century theologian, suggested:

"It's no use walking anywhere to preach unless your walking is your preaching."
