DAY 2 / NEXT 100 DAYS OF LOVE | FIRST DO NO HARM

Updated: Sep 20

PRIMUM NON NOCERE “FIRST, DO NO HARM”

There is a garden growing and flourishing brilliantly within the ground of your being utilizing divine intelligence symbiotically blossoming in service to the highest expression of who you are. This garden is nourished by Love.


In every interaction, in every circumstance, align yourself with the principle of loving service to “first do no harm.” Upon further review in the Greek text ὠφελέειν ή μὴ βλάπτειν (not perfectly translated into Latin as primum non nocere - first do no harm) is a passage from the Hippocratic treatise on Epidemics "In illnesses one should keep two things in mind, to be useful (in service), rather than cause no harm." A shift in thinking and an important distinction. Be of useful service in your days, remain alive to consider the possibilities what actions you could undertake.


Day 2 NEXT 100 Heart Art. Start Something Loving.

AWAKEN: WHAT YOU SEEK, YOU FIND

In practicing useful service, who knows what wonderful effects you will have on someone's life, to create connection, to be someone who engages with the heart in subtle and powerful ways. You can picture this youngster growing into a master storyteller. Through his kindness the world is made more whole, more loving and more true.

Loving Story shared by Ian Addison

REMEMBER: HAVING AN IDEA IS NO SOLUTION, EVERYTHING DEPENDS ON EXECUTION.

The art of making art, is putting it together. These words from Stephen Sondheim from the beautiful Sunday in the Park with George tell the story of running through the finish line of completion. Don't stop. Keep on going.


When you practice today's principle of love - first do no harm - you strengthen your ability to move in the world. When you are in useful service the very fabric of structure melts away, giving you grace, through the love you put in action.
