A Shanti mantra for this Tuesday (or any day)

From the classic Indian texts the Upanishads:  

om purnam adah purnam idam purnat purnam udachyate 

purnasya purnam adaya purnam evavashishyate

And a humble but heartfelt little take on that:

Make an offering. Send a blessing. Share some love. When you give from the part of you that is pure, complete, timeless, and good, you don't lose anything. What you give is pure and complete, and what remains with you is *still* pure and complete. When the source of love is infinite, by definition, that source can't be diminished. So let some of it go, and be ready to welcome it back, too. 

Om shanti shanti shanti
