The love that I have for myself I extend to my neighbor.
I love you, my neighbor, as an extension of myself.
Everyone is my neighbor.
Every life is valuable and precious.
Each person has a reason for being.
We each make a contribution to the whole.
Life is about sharing the journey, not getting ahead of you.
Life is about traveling with you, not arriving before or without you.
I drop contrast and comparison to appreciate you.
I stop emotionally competing so I can celebrate us all.
I am moved by your presence, concerned with your needs.
