Mindfulness, Compassion and Love
Mindfulness, compassion and love changes your life and brings in bliss.The topic today seems to be clearly who is or is not capable of leading this nation. So clearly the emphasis has been placed on creating two parties to go to war and rip each other to pieces. Seems so very kind doesn’t it? All we hear and see is anger, rage, resentment, denial, victim mentality, blame, racism, bigotry and on and on. These stories make the headlines and the news is pumping it out into our living rooms nightly for all to hear. Compassion and love do not seem to be a very popular topic
Individuals and society as a whole have misconceptions about what it means to be kind, loving and compassionate. We are conditioned to believe that at the mere mention of compassion someone is weak. The technical, busy grind of our culture honors those who are ruthless, direct and take an aggressive approach to getting what they want. In reality most of us all struggle with the voice of judgment when we find we cannot live up to our own expectations. This is the same voice that judges others around us. Constantly we live in a nightmare with negative emotions, fear, feeling of inadequacy and doubt. We feel disconnected to each other and feelings of shame haunt us. We are riddled with anxiety.
How would the world look and feel if we turned the volume down on the hate and rage and increased the level of compassion, love and kindness?
