Allowing Compassion

Got Compassion?

We hear this word from many different places and people. Yet when it comes giving compassion, for some of us, it is easier to give compassion to others than to ourselves.

Stop just this one moment. Breathe in. Breathe out.

Now, again, breathe in but this time breathe in the word, “Compassion” and then breathe out the word “Compassion”. Feel a white clear light enter your body with each ‘in-breath’. Feel a white clear light released with each ‘out-breath’.

When we allow ourselves to receive compassion we are saying we are worthy of love.  Allow compassion to enter your life so that you may understand and return it to all beings.

Engaging ….

Engaging in virtuous activities is a bit like bringing up a young child. Many factors are involved, and, especially at the beginning, we need to be prudent and skillful in our endeavors to transform our habits and dispositions. We also need to be realistic about what we can expect to achieve. It took us a long time to become the way we are, and habits are not changed overnight. ~ His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama

Eternity

Eternity isn’t some later time.

Eternity isn’t even a long time.

Eternity has nothing to do with time.

Eternity is that dimension of here and now that all thinking in temporal times cuts off.

And if you don’t get it here, you won’t get it anywhere…the experience of eternity right here and now, in all things, whether thought of as good or as evil, is the function of life.

This is it.

~ Joseph Campell

Put the mind at ease

Cultivating a close, warm-hearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the ultimate source of success in life. ~ His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama
