The Beatles got it right

Seth points out at the end of the Your Turn book that it's about love. It's about choosing love over fear and sharing that with others. Going out on a limb to express it, even when it's not noticed or reciprocated.

At the end of this Your Turn Challenge that is what I'm taking away.

The days and moments I focus my time on sharing love and compassion with others are the moments when I shine.

Sharing it through my written ideas allows me to express my passions and progress. Practicing it outwardly toward others and the planet is rewarding as well. Whether it's seeing a person on the bus who looks like they're having a hard day and mentally sending an energy filled with love and peace to that person or expressing gratitude at catching the last glimpse of the setting sun, these moments fill me with a sense of awe that I can only attest is love.

It might sound sappy or "new age," but it's a Small Act that's really easy to practice. The more I practice it the easier it becomes and the more often I do it. It becomes a natural habit that encourages me to connect with others without judgement, whether I know them or not.

Being challenged to articulate my perspective on some interesting questions makes me realize that love really is the basis of my passions, ways of getting unstuck, things that are important, and the path toward living a more meaningful life.

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It’s easy

All you need is love.

Nothing you can make that can’t be made
No one you can save that can’t be saved
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time
It’s easy

All you need is love.

Nothing you can know that isn’t known
Nothing you can see that isn’t shown
Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be
It’s easy

All you need is love.
— The Beatles
