Sacred values drive behavior

Unfortunately they also drive us nuts, into walls, over the edge, and into war. What is our deepest value?

In deep wonder about this question  I’ve launched The Sacred Stories Project. I want to discover for myself the influence and importance of Great Love in our lives.  I’ve begun to gather people to listen to body and soul, tell, and sometimes share moments that inspire them to love.

What is love? How does it affect our behavior? What happened to increase or challenge our ability to love?

For me, the feeling of love is my response to something transcendent, sacred, a phenomenon that is not necessarily passionate or emotional. It communicates underlying unconditional regard for all things.  Everyday this regard is shown to me in nature, beauty, the kindness of people and demonstrations of our collective desire to keep learning how to love.

What inspires love in you. Why is it important? Do you have a story to tell?
