The foundation of heart-centered living is love. Pure and simple. Therefore, when we embrace or step into heart-centered living, we are allowing love to be the guiding force for all that we think, say and do. The higher your level of self-love the more compassion you exercise in all of your thoughts, words and actions towards the self and all of life's creation. We come to understand that we are all from the same source on this planet, and thus one human family. We begin to show the highest level of compassion for all animals, and plants and all other species of life on this planet. May we always focus on the solutions, rather than the problems, and truly be the change we wish to see.
