Our Life is Our Message....


As we look around at the state of the world, many are feeling an increasing sense of anxiety over the uncertainty that marks almost every facet of our lives. We may wonder what we can do to create a more loving and compassionate world in the face of the insanity and violence that confronts us at every turn. Though we do not have control over what happens half way round the word, or for that matter, down the street, we can have an influence on our immediate surroundings, and on the world around us, by simply living with the intention of being an instrument of peace and kindness toward every sentient being that appears before us. In this way we can then contribute to the wider circle of peace and compassion in the world at large.

It all begins and ends with us. An important question to ask ourselves daily is this; 'what is my message to the world today'? What energy am I sending out to all of those who cross my path? Is it a message of Love and kindness, or is it a message of stress, judgement, and anger? What we think, feel, and do creates ripples that radiate from us and effect all of those with whom we interact; from our partner and co-workers, to the dog next door.

This 'message' that we send out is also the message we end up receiving from the world and from others, for what goes out returns to us in the form of the relationships and circumstances we experience as our life. So what has been your message to the world today? What is your message here and now? If making the world a more peaceful and compassionate place is what we long for, then we simply make it our practice to send peace and compassion to everyone we meet.

You can begin right where you are; take a refreshing breath (or three) into the space of your heart, smile and send out peace and gentleness from your heart on your out-breath to all Beings (particularly to those around you). What you may find is that Life responds by smiling back at you with peace, love and understanding. If contributing to the well-being of others, and our planet, is what we truly wish to do, then the time to begin is here and now...
