The gift of oneself

What is your medicine? I was asked that long ago. The questioner wanted to know what I was especially good at that came to me naturally, and that I could give to my community – my particular medicine for others.

Each of us has a natural talent, something we are good at and that we both like doing and find ourselves doing, even if we don’t particularly want to.

Each one of us is gifted in our unique and particular way. This gift we are born with is something that shines when we acknowledge and own it, when we learn to love it. When we learn to love ourselves.

What is your medicine?

Love self, love the world.

Cultivate your gift

Quote of the Week

Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
