Hearing the bell
I let go of all my afflictions
My heart is calm
my sorrow ended
no longer bound to anything
I learn to listen to my suffering
And to the suffering of others
When understanding is born in me
Compassion is also born.
Compassion is the very soul of Buddhism. To pray for others, making their problems and anguish your own; to embrace those who are suffering, becoming their greatest ally; to continue giving them your support and encouragement until they become truly happy—it is in such humanistic actions that Buddhism lives and breathes.
Love is your nature, and only what is in perfect alignment and harmony with Love exists, because that is everything that God so lovingly created. Anything unloving is most definitely, wholly unreal. Discover that divine Truth now – by engaging only with Love in every thought, word, and action. When you do you will find peace and contentment that is available nowhere else, because there is nowhere else.
You can do it while you remain sleeping within the illusion, and then the suffering around you will cease to make you sad or anxious because you will see the ephemeral of it and understand that by intending to send love to those who are suffering you are easing their pain and assisting them in their efforts to awaken into Love.
The tide of Love now surging across the planet is irresistible, and daily more and more of humanity is surrendering to its warm embrace. Humanity is firmly established on the path to awakening, the path Home, and nothing can divert it. Give thanks for the infinite wonder of God’s eternal Love for you, and how it is drawing you back to the brilliant Light of His Presence.
When you get to the end of all the light you know
and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown,
faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen:
either you will be given something solid to stand on,
or you will be taught how to fly.
If the sun keeps shining on the bud, the flower will open. When the light on the sun penetrates the flower bud, the flower will open. When the light of the sun penetrates the flower bud, the photons transform it, and the flower opens. Our mindfulness has the same function as the light of the sun. If we shine the light of full awareness steadily on our state of mind, that state of mind will transform into something better.
There is something refreshing, renewing and sacred about dew early in the morning….
The Heavens descend to greet the Earth…
the Sun comes up … and everything is Golden.

Compassion is that which makes the heart of the good move at the pain of others. It crushes and destroys the pain of others; thus, it is called compassion. It is called compassion because it shelters and embraces the distressed.
