The Law of Love  

Divine Law can neither be ignored nor put aside. Perhaps, the most important of these laws is the 'law of love.'

Put simply, "Love is Law, Law is Love." This amounts to the same thing as "the gift of giving" without the "hope of reward or pay," or serving others. For how the Law of Love works in business, go to

What is this thing called love?

Every religion teaches the Law of Love.

Hurt not others with that which pains yourself. Udanavarga 5.18.

Always treat others as you would like them to treat you; that is the Law and the Prophets. Bible, Matthew 7:12.

Do not unto others what you would not they should do unto you. Analects 15.23.

This is the sum of duty: Do nothing to others which if done to you, would cause you pain. Mahabharata 5.1517.

No one of you is a believer until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself. Traditions.

In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief, we should regard all creatures as we regard our own self, and should therefore refrain from inflicting upon others such injury as would appear undesirable to us if inflicted upon ourselves. Yogashastra 2.20.

What is hurtful to yourself do not to your fellow man. That is the whole of the Torah and the remainder is but commentary. Go learn it. Talmud.

As you deem yourself so deem others. Then you will become a partner in partner to heaven. Kabir.

Regard your neighbor's loss as your own loss. T'ai shang kan ying p'ien.

Love and Happiness

"I'll be happy when...." is the way many people think they are living their lives. Yet, happiness is not something that happens to you. Happiness is inside you now. You are motivated from within. You only have to allow happiness to surface.

Happiness = K (knowing who you are) X D (discovering your life's work) X L (learning not to tolerate what's not important).

That's the formula for happiness--know yourself, your true calling and that you get what you tolerate.

Happiness is being aware not only of the positive events that occur in your life but also that you yourself are the cause of these events--that you can create them, that you control their occurrence, and that you play a major role in the good things that happen to you. Happiness, said Benjamin Franklin, "is produced not so much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen as by the little advantages that occur every day."

Happiness isn't somewhere off in the future, but in living in the "now" and loving every moment of our daily experiences. We have an opportunity to form an impression in every business or personal interaction. Yet, in the business world, we don't speak much about the heart. But our purpose in doing our life's work should come from the heart---since all businesses are ultimately people serving people. We all need connection, belonging and meaningful contribution.

There is a paradox of happiness, stated by Viktor E. Frankl in The Will of Meaning, "To the extent to which one makes happiness the objective of his motivation, he necessarily makes it the object of his attention. But precisely by so doing he loses sight of the reason for happiness, and happiness itself must fade away. Success and happiness must happen, the less one cares for them, the more they can."

Discover what love is. What is Love?

"Those who succeed in revealing themselves to another find the dimness receding from their own visions of self. Like people awakening from a dream, they slough off the accumulated, ill-fitting trappings of unsuitable lives. Then the mutual fund manager may become a sculptor, or visa versa; some friendships lapse into dilapidated irrelevance as new ones deepen; the city dweller moves to the country, where he feels finally at home. As the emotional brain clarity emerges, life takes form." A General Theory of Love by Thomas Lewis M.D., Fari Amini, M.D., Richard Lannon, M.D.

Forgiving Smile

by Briana Agno


Through the tough,

I embraced it all,

A magical little puff,

Might brighten it all

I slowly watched the sun,

Rise beneath the hilltops,

A new day has just begun,

Sparkling the grass with dew drops

So little do you recognize,

No story on your face,

Except a freckle full of lies,

A smile you’ve misplaced

Even though I’m shy,

I come face-to-face,

The tears I shall cry,

Only you could replace.

I walked this lonely road,

You left me confused for quite awhile,

The light at the end of the tunnel showed,

You kept me tied together with your forgiving smile.

Google The Virtual Dating Game

While many people think of dating services as just that--an easy way to find a date online dating has established itself as a legitimate relationship maker. Increasingly, singles are using the Internet to seek out that special someone for the long-term. For those who shun singles bars and the dating scene, meeting someone virtually can forgo much of the uncomfortable aspects of dating.

According to a survey conducted at the 8-million member, a half-million new members register each month.
