"Love and compassion are necessities . . .

. . . not luxuries.  Without them, humanity cannot exist."  Dalai Lama

Love and compassion are aspects of the heart that provide understanding, comfort and a deep connection to what it is to be human, offering insight into the very existence and depth of self.  When we can connect to Love at our very core and feel the strength and power of Love itself, we know Love is the existence of all life.  In that moment of consciousness, we also know nothing is ever separate and the gift of our human life, is to embrace that very consciousness.

"This is my simple religion . . .

. . . There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophy, our own brains, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness."  Dalai Lama

Our hearts and the practice of Love and Compassion open us to all that is possible in this world because Love is the greatest force there is and we are that.  We cannot be separate from the Love that is Life because it isn't possible.  So when we stay open to expressing kindness, understanding and compassion, we are already in our true temple. In that sacred space, we connect with all the Love in the cosmos, the universe, the earth and all the higher consciousness found in our own human heart.  Kindness resonates with even more kindness and more Love is present.

"Let yourself be silently drawn . . .

. . . by the strange pull of what you really love.  It will not lead you astray."  Rumi

Love is the strongest force in the cosmos, the universe, the world, within us and all of life.  It is the impetus for continuation and growth, expansion and contraction and it is behind all cycles of shift and change.  In the process of ebb and flow, life is moved on in a way that allows and invites life to evolve through a constant expanding consciousness.  When we Love all of life and feel a deep gratitude for it, that Love responds and resonates with us.  In that truthful joy, we are not ever lead astray.  We are always one with that Love too.

"Beauty is simply reality . . .

. . . seen with the eyes of Love."  Evelyn Underhill

The heart knows beauty when it sees it.  What the heart considers to be beautiful may not be classified as beauty through the mind.  Faculties of the mind might include judgment, harshness and criticism and consequently, the ability to discount, dismiss or discredit people, items or situations based on a narrow perspective.  When we open our hearts and our minds, we begin to have a broader perspective and ultimately, we become aware of the oneness of life.  In the oneness of life, we recognize and realize all of life is based on Love.  Love is the beauty the heart sees.

"Think of all the beauty still left . . .

. . . around you and be happy."  Anne Frank

No matter how dismal, how disturbing or how much in despair we can become, there is always beauty in the world, in our hearts and surrounding us in each moment.  The Love we carry is always with us and it is the greatest force in the world.  It is our very life itself.  Recognizing the beauty in the world reflects the constant beauty in our hearts and souls.  Remembering that, we are always uplifted and joy is attainable.

"Everything changes constantly . . .

. . . except Eternal Love."  The Mother - "White Roses"

If there is one thing to put our faith and heart in it is Eternal Love.  It is the one sure constant.  The whole of creation is supported by the force of Love and we are, at our core, that same Love.  When we make time each day to embrace that Pure Love and to open our hearts to it, the Eternal Love can and will shift and change our consciousness and our life.  Love is why we came here and Love is who we are.  Eternal Love is life itself.

"The quieter you become . . .

 . . . the more you can hear."  Rumi

In a state of silence, we can feel our heart and hear our soul.  We can hear the depths of who we are and feel how deeply connected we are to all things and the whole of creation.  We develop compassion and realize the power and force of Love and how it truly touches us all. Silence is truly golden as is our pure essence.  Developing our ability to really listen enables our greater inner growth and expansion.

"Listen with ears . . .

. . . of tolerance.  See through eyes of compassion.  Speak with the language of Love."  Dancing with Spirit - FB

In current times of change, Love, tolerance and compassion are attributes that see us through.  A gentle and kind understanding keeps the calm and restores the peace.  Balance brings harmony and Grace, inviting us, encouraging and allowing us to be positive and grateful.  We are one world and when we remember that Love is a strong force in the world, a state of joy becomes a constant reminder of all that is good!

"If words come out of the heart . . .

. . . they will enter the heart.  Listen, my friends, that place inside of you is your only shelter."  Kabir

Listening to the heart guides us to a much deeper knowledge, understanding and compassion.  It shows us the inner beauty we are because it is our true nature.  Love is the greatest force in the world and it reflects the whole creation.  Love is evolving, opening more hearts and souls to their true nature, welcoming in a new era of consciousness.  A new era that is heart based!  It has always been the heart that guides us home.

"We do not heal the past . . .

 . . . by dwelling there: we heal the past by living in the present."  Marianne Williams

Imagine taking a giant golden basket on your travels down the road to your past, gathering the fondest memories in it as golden bubbles to see, love and remember.  Nothing heavy to hold onto.  Also, anything you see or feel in the past that was not positive, happy or uplifting gently, with gratitude, release it as bubbles up to the sky.  Give thanks that those energies no longer exists nor does that part of you.  Be grateful that you experienced it all and then come forward into the now moment.  Forgive yourself and all others and feel the deepest thanks you can for it all.  In each now moment, feel the joy of the present.

"The Grace is equally for all . . .

. . . But each one receives it according to his sincerity.  It does not depend on outward circumstances, but on a sincere aspiration and openness."  

Grace is an energy that uplifts, inspires and moves our consciousness higher with a vibration of Love, knowledge and truth. It is not a human energy, it comes from a much higher aspect of life.  It moves in our system as a presence and shifts and changes what is false in us into a much more solid, secure and trustworthy vibration that aligns with our very soul.  Grace touches us in ways that alter who we think we are into a purer state of our true self.  When we truly aspire to sincerely open our heart and mind to that higher power, Love and Grace responds in kind.

"Love is the real work . . .

. . . of your life.  It is your spiritual path.  It is the key to your growth and evolution."  Robert Hilden

Love is the one universal, cosmic constant energy and force in the world.  It is behind the whole creation and it is the very creation itself.  Love is our truest and purest nature.  Love is present in everything.  Our mind blocks out the Love sometimes, like the dark clouds cover the sun.  Yet, even without seeing the sun, we know fully well it is still shining.  Love is always there, even when it is unable to speak up for itself.  Often Love is silent and yet present all the time.  Listen with your heart and you'll hear it as it guides you with Love.

"Vision is the light . . .

. . . in the darkness - the beacon of strength that will help carry you towards true self-actualization and empowerment."  Anthony Benson

Vision is a faculty that allows for truth to open and be revealed.  When we aspire to open to our higher and highest potential, we can develop abilities to perceive and receive vision.  Vision reveals what is really there instead of what we want to be there.  It cuts through what is known to what is unknown until the truth that is there is revealed.  True gratitude follows vision because vision is always an act of grace.
