When we meet others, is it beyond us to be the first one to offer friendship and compassion? If we are to achieve a harmonious planet, we must seek first the love in others hearts. It is easy to be the one looking for the flaws in others. It is easy to be a critic. We must search each day to understand our we in our space and time can bring the human family together. This is the greatest goal of all. This is my peace offering to you. Will you be my family?
I have recently become pregnant. Throughout all of this, people have been telling me what to do and what not to do. Not really knowing if they have the best advice or not. What I’ve discovered is that their is no replacement for what the human body wants. Many of the things I have done correctly, I have done because that’s what I knew I had to do at the time. If something will likely make me sick, then my body will automatically reject it.
Our first moments of the day set the precedence for the mood of the rest of our waking hours. When you wake up plan a few moments for meditation. If you are more familiar with meditating, then this can be done within your commute to your daily responsibilities. Starting your day from a peaceful place can offer the ability to transform your daily life.
Just as a prism refracts many colors, our hearts refract many emotions. Realize that you are not these emotions. These emotions are a state of your existence. These emotions can flow through you without consuming you. Life is much easier when your concentration is focused on merely being. To obtain the observer state an individual must look past personal interjections and opinions without passing judgements.
All judgements are relative to outside forces and experiences that do no necessarily attribute merit to the current situation. The ability to find oneself in a born again innocent state.
And reaching for those stars.
Every action has a reaction so what follows the reaction?
The sun provides nutrients and also energy for life. Mediating in the open daylight can re-engerize you instead of allowing you to feel your normal tired self.
The egg is the symbol of birth and rebirth. The buddhist says that man dies every second and is reborn again. Rebirth does not have to mean death or religious change. It can mean reformatting a thought structure or perhaps a behavior pattern. It is desirable to have a life that constantly renews itself. Meditation is a trigger to help aid in new rebirth in your life.
Evil is the misunderstanding of love.
Relax. Often people say that their thoughts overwhelm them too much when they’re trying to mediate. A simple exercise I use to prevent this is to let the thoughts come. Don’t stop them. Also don’t hold on to them. Allow them to flow through your mind like a running stream in and out and eventually there are no thoughts left to flow.
Sometimes I like to think of god or life as a flowing energy pattern. We control the harmony of this current through our thoughts and our emotions. Taking a deep breath and releasing all other ideas but something simple like strips of electric bands surging in and out of symmetry.
“The flowering of love is meditation.” Jiddu Krishnamurti
