Love Your Enemies

Our enemies provide us with a precious opportunity to practice patience and love. We should have gratitude toward them.

Tenzin Gyatso
The 14th Dalai Lama


Love our enemies?  Did Chris just say that?  Seriously?
Yes I did.
The 14th Dalai Lama said it.
Jesus preached it.

This is not a new concept as you can see.  And if you notice one of my favorite words is in this quote or at least a derivative of it.  I’m not going to tell you what the word is.  Let’s see how many people really know me.  Can you guess the word?  I gave you the biggest hint, so even if you don’t know me as well some many of my followers, you should be able to pick the word out.

Loving our enemies has much in common with forgiveness.

Those who forgive can lighten their hearts.
Those who forgive stop hurting themselves
.

I see Law of Attraction in this quote as well.  Can you guess where?  It is with that favorite derivation once more.  As you’ve seen with this entry and several others here and for those of you who have been following me for some time I resonate deeply with Buddhism.  I feel most comfortable in that belief system.  It’s why I continue writing about the faith.

If you notice I said:
Jesus preached it.

It’s another example that all religions are one.  We are all connected.
Everything is connected.
Everything is connected to one divine source.

Do you see that?
If not, I think it’s time to remove your spiritual blinders.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Bless Those You Wish to Curse

There is story of a righteous man who is asked to curse another man. He is told that the person in question is evil and wants to hurt everyone. The righteous man replies, “instead of cursing him, wouldn’t it be easier to bless him so that he’ll be able only to see the Light? If he can only see the Light, the rest will be taken care of, won’t it?”
Today, bless the people you want to curse. You can’t fight darkness with darkness. You have to fight it with Light.25002,21,700 person.

Instead of cursing him, wouldn’t it be easier to bless him so that he’ll be able only to see the Light?

It takes a strong person to realize this.  Some of us are just not that enlightened yet.  That’s not a bad thing as we eventually all cross that line.  It takes many incarnations for us to reach that level.  Some of us get there sooner than others.  The object is to arrive at that point at some time.  Darkness is a negative force, but one tiny light can fill that void instantly.

It only takes one light and you can see through any darkness.  As it is with any person who appears dark, evil.  Maybe they are just seeking the only outlet they know.  If one brave enough, strong enough reaches out to them, shows them the light, maybe they too will break out through the darkness.

Do you know someone who is throwing darkness?
Have you tried throwing light onto them instead of reflecting their behavior back to them?  If you have then you know what happens.  They become so flustered they have no recourse.  They have no clue how to react.  Generally, they will simply walk away because they didn’t acheive what they were seeking.

Throwing light has two actions then:
–It keeps the discourse civil.
–It creates a better atmosphere where darkness can’t survive.

In all instances, the righteous man is correct.

Can you become that righteous man?
I bet you can!

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Law of Attraction and Meditation

Law of Attraction and Meditation:
These two topics would seem to fit together as perfect puzzle pieces, wouldn’t you think?  I never thought of them in the same sentence before, however I can see how they would fit together.  Law of Attraction (LoA)  after all is bring into your focus what you desire.  What’s the imperative word there?

If you said, focus then ding ding ding, you get the prize.  Focus is extremely important in meditation.  Remember as I said above one of the points in LoA is focusing on what you want?  What better way to focus than through meditation?  I am well aware of guided meditation as I’ve done it before.  I’m sure there are LoA guided meditations available.

The biggest challenge I have with being guided is that it does me no good.  I focus too much on the voice of the person speaking to me and not enough on my own personal space.  When I meditate I don’t like to be told what to see, where to go, what to do.  I need the freedom to travel unimpeded , to go where I feel most at peace.  I can imagine someone just learning to practice meditating would need some guidance, however I’ve been meditating for several years now and hearing someone’s voice does more to interrupt my calm than settle it.  Focus is what I need when meditating, and guided meditation simply doesn’t work for me.  It doesn’t mean it won’t work for you.  Maybe it will.

LoA attempts to bring to you what you desire.  The only way for it to do so is by deep focus.  Meditating can bring you to a place where you are extremely focused.  If you center on what you want whether it be a relationship, a career, an object, put some instrumental music on, close your eyes and simply drift away, staying centered on your desire.  You can sometimes reach your higher self in this way, the universal “you,” the place where your dreams exist.

Those who meditate daily say they can find that place with relative ease on a regular basis.  Once in this state, the essence of who are, some would say your soul is no longer with your body.  It has traveled outside.  This is when you can ask the universe for what it is that your shell, your physical desires.

It’s not easy to get to this place.  The more you practice meditation, the more likely it is that you will reach it.  You may not even be aware that you are in the state the first time you make contact with the Universal.  You may only be there for what appears to be a split second, but remember in previous entries here at Wisdom and Life when I said:
Time is different in the Spiritual Realm
.  I wrote another entry called Fixed Rules where I discuss how time varies between the spiritual realm and the physical realm.

What I’m getting at and why I brought up these two blogs here, is that even though you may feel as if you’ve spent only a split second in the Universal State, most likely the time you were there was much longer than your physical, than your shell can comprehend.  So while there you MUST make sure you voice your desire.  Someone (Our Guides?) will pick up on your desire and if it is in your Divine Plan your wish will manifest at the right time.
When the wish arrives, you must make sure to thank the Universe, your Guides, The Masters so that they are aware.  This is an important step in practicing LoA.  By acknowledging the Universe, you are giving thanks to those who manifested your desires.

Meditating can help you reach that state where can speak with your guides and as I said above even though it may seem as if you’ve spent but a split second in that state, chances are you were there much longer than you know.

It’s important that you ask for your desire.
It’s important that you continually focus on your desire as you move into your meditative state.  The more you center on your wish the greater the likelihood that your masters, your guides will pick up on why you’re in the Universal state.

Remember to focus!

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
