Excellence Reporter: 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.
