David Richo: The Meaning of Life and the Morning Affirmation

copyNicolae Tanase: Dr. Richo, what is the meaning of life?

David Richo: The meaning of life for me is in this affirmation I recite each morning:

I say Yes to everything that happens to me today
as an opportunity 
to give and receive love without reserve.
I am thankful for the enduring capacity to love 
that has come to me from the Sacred Heart of the universe.
May everything that happens to me today
open my heart more and more.
May all that I think, say, feel, and do express loving-kindness 
toward myself, those close to me, and all beings. 
May love be my life purpose, my bliss, my calling, my destiny,
the richest grace I can receive or give.
And may I always be especially compassionate 
toward people who are considered least or last

or who feel alone or lost.
