Inspired by Lao Tzu

Excerpt from a contemplation for Return to Spring
As you open your body to the universe, as you open your heart to the qi and to love, feel yourself expanding, giving love, receiving love.
The universe offers you unconditional love. You are in the universe and the universe is in you.
As the qi pours into your body, love enters your entire being. Consciously welcome love with your whole heart and mind.
