Today, you don't have to work so hard to be cheerful and good, to fill every moment with meaningful activity, to strive for some imaginary standard of perfection. Instead, feel Love caring for you, those you love, and all of creation. Spend less time in busy activity and more resting in the awareness of Love's presence.
