Yesterday in our Meditation Teacher Training we studied the Loving Kindness Meditation and it seems to have trickled over to this morning. I wake with the following reflection: Finding softness in the unknown, choosing love over fear, having faith that through kindness we can find understanding and that through Grace we will come to know ourselves, each other and situations more clearly. Trusting that emotions and feelings can be gently expressed and dissolved through authentically sharing and a togetherness of deep listening. Anger and shutting down is not the answer - staying open and in the heart space of deep compassion for our humanness is. This year I have had the opportunity to forgive and be forgiven and in the this vulnerability, pain and light it has allowed an awakening on so many levels. The fire is not to be ignored or avoided. It is to be walked through to clear the way and burn through the karmas, samskaras and tendencies. It is through this process that those that truly love you will rise and meet you with the same Grace, kindness and love. I believe in forgiveness. I believe in love. I believe in communication. I believe we have the power to show-up for each other in healing and compassionate ways. Sending peace to all those going through struggles right now. Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti!
