Harmonic vibrations of love pulsating within the inter-connectedness of all things fill hearts with sympathetic joy.
Aligning ourselves towards our true function opens the floodgates and clarity ensues.
Like a flower unfolding under the right conditions of warmth and light, our hearts too respond to the circumstances around us.
All Buddhas have experienced Enlightenment only through circumstances. Gautama Buddha saw Venus and BAM…alignment with the Universe’s heart was precise.
Although it is important to provide our soil with the correct nutrients and warmth and light, even the roasting and suffocating surface of Venus can spark this magical unfolding… this alignment.
Be still and honest within yourself and do not deny proper care to your garden. The Buddha, before Enlightenment, was a prince, living with amazing luxuries… he gave that all up and denied himself even the most basic of nourishment and grew sick and hungry. Years passed and a compassionate woman gave him some milk infused with rice… nourishment and his body responded to this love, this care. He discovered the Middle Way. Do not live in excess, yet do not deny yourself of proper care.
Do not seek heaven for reward and do not seek hell for self punishment.
The Universe has taken billions of years to get you where you are… it knows what it is doing.. having faith in this allows our alignment towards Truth and Freedom and Love to blossom.
Let us be gentle and kind to ourselves.
