    Inspiring and lovely! One candle can kindle a thousand candles. Sounds good, is good.

    How lovely! I think that what we give away is ours forever whereas what we hold back will be lost forever, and I also think that things are worth more when we give them away. One of my favorite quotes, that I heard when I was a teenager and I always lived by is this: “We are all angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing each other. ” I don’t remember who said it, it was on a Christmas card that was sent out to all those who sponsored SOS Children’s Villages.
    Lots and lots of Love to you dearest Gina! 🙂

      Line you are an endless source of light and inspiration. Thank You!! I especially love your opening point that what we give we keep, but what we hold back is lost forever. Powerful wisdom there, and great peace to be found within and in the whole world for more and more of us to live from that place. I also love that saying which reminds us we can only fly by holding onto each other. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you dear heart, for your bright and beautiful wing helping to lift us all. Blessings and Love, Gina xo

        Can we spread our friendship to encompass the world?
        So people realise we are all interconnected no one stands alone we all need a helping hand.
        We have many names for that helping hand and there are many path to the top of the mountain.
        The people with love and compassion in their hearts will meet there beyond all dogmas.
        Thank you Gina it is an honour to be your friend.
