Zen thought of the day:
“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.”
– The Buddha
You’ve got SuperPowers. You create your reality and it overlaps in unending layers with everyone else’s realities you come into contact with. Think Love and see what changes.
I couldn’t sleep last night and was thinking of how when I was a new mom I wished my babies had come with instructions and as they grow it just doesn’t get any easier to know how to raise them. But I realized it is SO simple: do no harm and handle with Care. That’s how to treat all humans and how to raise the vibration of everyone around you. Literally, that is how to Raise them. That’s how to raise them to think and feel and be Love and Loved. I had thought my capacity to love was maxed out when they each took their first breaths but the more they’ve grown, the more my heart for them grows and the more I love the unique, wonderful people they are becoming. Every challenge they bring to me is an opportunity for my heartmind to stretch, to grow to Love them more through any difficulty.
And when you think about the world this way, total strangers who may piss you off, or friends who cross you, it’s an opportunity to grow your heart and raise your own Love vibration. Every single time. We live in a world of opportunity, peeps!
Think Love, even if you don’t feel it and slowly you will. Feel that Love inside you grow the more you think on it. Hold that in your heartmind and Be Love.
Love life and live it, dear friends. XO
