The secret of radiant health is

“One finds love not by being loved, but by loving”.

“We can never know love if we try to draw others to ourselves; nor can we find it by centering our love in them.  For love is infinite, it is never ours to create.  We can only channel it from its source in Infinity to all whom we meet.

“The more we forget ourselves in giving to others, the better we can understand what love really is.  And the more we love as channels for God's love, the more we can understand that His is the one love in all the universe.”

“Affirm repeatedly!
I will love others as extensions of my own Self, and of the love I feel from God”.

“And close with this prayer:
O Infinite One, make me a channel for Thy love!  Through me, reach out to sow seeds of love in barren hearts everywhere.”
