Yipee! My friend, Whitney, got back to me about the readings from her wedding. As a member of the audience, I found myself really paying attention and listening to the words and concepts. They got me thinking a lot about the nature of love.

- Matthew 7: 7-8, 24-25
"Training is needed in order to love properly; and to be able to give happiness and joy, you must practice DEEP LOOKING directed toward the other person you love. Because if you do not understand this person, you cannot love properly. Understanding is the essence of love. If you cannot understand, you cannot love. That is the message of the Buddha." - Thich Nhat Hahn
