Love: The Life Force Energy

Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor. .. . Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting. — Mother Teresa.

A college professor had his sociology class go into the Baltimore slums to get case histories of 200 young boys. They were asked to write an evaluation of each boy’s future. In every case the students wrote, “He hasn’t got a chance.” Twenty-five years later another sociology professor came across the earlier study.

He had his students follow up on the project to see what had happened to these boys. With the exception of 20 boys who had moved away or died, the students learned that 176 of the remaining 180 had achieved more than ordinary success as lawyers, doctors and businessmen.

The professor was astounded and decided to pursue the matter further. Fortunately, all the men were in the area and he was able to ask each one, “How do you account for your success?” In each case the reply came with feeling, ‘There was a teacher.”

The teacher was still alive, so he sought her out and asked the old but still alert lady what magic formula she had used to pull these boys out of the slums into successful achievement.

The teacher’s eyes sparkled and her lips broke into a gentle smile. “It’s really very simple,” she said. “I loved those boys.”

    Love can move mountains. Also we should not write off somebody very early in life

    The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.

    @ Shammi – I agree, by writing off somebody very early, you are writing off your own chances in future 🙂

    @ Pinky – You are right, give and spread love at every direction, and see miracles in your life 🙂
