I simply wanted to share this YouTube clip this with you this morning. I was inspired by a friend on Facebook. Pema Chodron is a remarkable Buddhist monk who in this clip talks about Maitri: Unconditional Friendship with oneself. The greatest gift and a direct route to helping us learn from our Karma. She is a remarkable woman!
Hope…. May 7, 2010
As some of you may… or may not know I blogged environmentally for few years so my heart is still very much attached to environmental causes and living. My father raised my sisters and myself with this value, “When you borrow something you return it in the same condition if not better than the way you found it”. To me this extends to our planet. We are borrowing it for however much time we have in our life. So with everything recently: Haiti, the following Earthquakes, the oil spill and most recently the flood in Nashville Tennessee my heart aches.
Now I know that whatever we focus we have more of…so my mind wanders to a more supportive thought….. like Hope. Then my mind drifted to a song written by Blu Sanders, who’s unbelievably talented (and a friend). I wanted to post a YouTube clip but there isn’t one so I’ll attach it to iTunes to keep it above board. But here it is in it’s complete form on his MySpace page World Without Hope. For me it’s all about the line…. “Let’s build a future we’re proud to own.” As for me this life time is about being of service and giving back. How do you want to give back to this planet? How do you reduce, reuse or recycle?
Thanks for helping Blu!
Love and Light
Inspiration May 2, 2010
Today day I thought I’d quote some Esther and Jerry Hicks with some Law of Attraction.
“Within the seed of your desire is everything necessary for it to blossom to fulfillment. And Law of Attraction is the engine that does the work. Your work is just to give it a fertile growing place in order to expand.”
