I love intentions that incorporate love and compassion.
When we hold a strong intention of love and compassion as the 'razor' for our daily actions we begin to allow ourselves a small window of opportunity before we react out of hurt, anger or ego and instead are able to understand and forgive.
Understanding after all is the first step in forgiveness and forgiveness is synonymous with unconditional love.
Bringing the intention that all our daily actions will rest on a base of love and compassion is one of the best ways to open true heart felt connection with others.
As Philo said: Be kind, for everyone we meet is fighting a great battle...
What better way to recognise this, and honour ourselves and those we meet by setting the intention:
I live this day with love and compassion
