Love Is a Verb

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness.

Today, we're going to talk about love.

So author and speaker, Stephen

Covey said, Love is a verb."

And I think this quote points to

something really fundamental about

the essence of living with awareness.

So when we talk about living with

awareness, we don't often talk

about its relationship to love.

But in reality, love and

awareness are not separate.

Awareness as the foundation of love.

Love, you could say, is the

expression of awareness.

So today I want to share with you a

little mindful living hack, if you will.

A very simple way to live with

more awareness in daily life is

to simply focus on having your

thoughts, words, and actions

motivated by kindness and compassion.

In other words, motivated by love.

So when we choose to see the best in

others, when we speak and behave in ways

that are kind and uplifting, when we're

truly present with other people, when

we include, forgive, encourage, respect,

and listen deeply, we're being loving.

When we refrain from gossip,

practice honesty, let someone in in

traffic, we can be practicing love.

When we practice recycling, taking our

reusable bags to the store, we can be

practicing love and care for the planet.

So practicing love can really

come in so many different forms.

Our actions that are motivated by love

create feelings of love in our own hearts

and minds as well as benefiting others.

Practice often love can take up

residence within us and really

actually become our default

motivational force and mode of being.

So if we can start with the smallest

actions filled by your loving intentions,

it can really start to infuse more

awareness all throughout daily life.

So today just remembering that one

of the simplest kind of hacks to

bring mindfulness into daily life

is simply to remember that love

is a verb - to intentionally keep

choosing to take the high road, to

act with compassion and kindness.

In this way, all these very

small actions become infused with

presence, purpose, and wisdom.

As always, thank you for your practice

and your presence here in this community.

Let's begin to settle

in for meditation now.
