Resolving conflict within yourself, directly helps resolve conflict in the world.
True or false?
Take this statement to your cushion. What arises as you shine the light within on conflict resolution?
Cushion contemplation is sometimes the strongest medicine!
…it’s extremely difficult to dislike or hate another.”
Now test this theory on your cushion and notice what unfolds:
Love yourself wholeheartedly while disliking another at the same time.
Notice how your fears influence how you live.
Notice how your love influences how you live.
Which do you choose to practice mindfully today:
Fear or love?
Knowing this, don’t waste time!
I dare you to do
What you have wanted to do
I dare you to walk courageously within the uncertainties
And run wild with what you discover around the corner.
I dare you!
Hail was heard
Before it arrived.
All that was not needed.
Which are you today?
Wind? Hail? Rain?
All are necessary.
Each day we do our best…
And then at night we reflect.
In the morning,
Our best is what we give.
There is no dress rehearsal.
We are doing an “in the moment ensemble”.
May we stay true to our heartlines
And give life and ourselves the best we can.
You may stumble, trip, fall. Get back up again. You are doing the best you can without maps and instructions.
As the blinders come off…be kind to yourself and to us. You plus Us = We.
We can do this together…
Gentleness and kindness start at home. We begin with our own heart. When we are kind and gentle with ourselves, we naturally offer this gentle kindness to all beings we meet.
How do you remember to be present and loving with yourself?
