How Can I Be More Lighthearted and Love More?


I feel a sense of distance between everyone, even loved ones. It’s as if my heart is heavy. How can I be more lighthearted and love more?

Dear Charlie,

You can begin by expanding your sense of self to include others. Find ways to serve others, and give them what you want to receive.

Tune into the needs of people around you, and see how you can help them. Try to fulfill their needs in small ways, without their asking.

You might volunteer in a hospital or a senior home.

By service to others you’ll begin to move energy in a positive direction, and expand your self-identity, which will help you to feel happier and more connected with others.

You can also spend time in nature. Take a walk in nature and try to feel connected with the earth, the trees, the birds, the sky, etc.

Daily exercise, practice of breathing techniques, eating a healthy diet will also help you to begin to feel better.

Blessings on your journey towards self expansion,

Nayaswami Diksha
