“All the peace and happiness of the whole globe,
the peace and happiness of societies,
the peace and happiness of family,
the peace and happiness in the individual persons’ life,
and the peace and happiness of even the animals and so forth,
all depends on having loving kindness toward each other.”

Lama Zopa Rinpoche

WHAT IS COMPASSION?

A praise of compassion by Lama Zopa Rinpoche:

“Live with compassion
Work with compassion
Die with compassion
Meditate with compassion
Enjoy with compassion
When problems come,
Experience them with compassion.”
The definition of compassion is: wanting others to be free from suffering. So compassion is the definition of the highest scope of motivation. It is said that to generate genuine compassion, one needs to realise that oneself is suffering, that an end to suffering is possible, and that other beings similarly want to be free from suffering.
This may seem difficult, however you are just a thought away to change how you feel and how you wish to be –  to experience the world you live in.  In my life, allowing myself experience the practice of compassion has given me self-love.  Self-love is unconditionnal love for my life and for myself.  This self-love is abundant and  universal.  We can choose to be ourselves if we allow ourselves find the courage to live as we please to live.  Since the beginning life, there will never be another person just like you and there never will be. So enjoy yourself.  Love yourself.  Be a friend with yourself.  Forgive yourself.  Be kind to yourself.  Find compassion towards yourself. Find compassion towards others.
Namaste,
Suzie

LOVE YOURSEL AND LIVE YOUR SPIRIT.

If you love your Spirit enough to feel it, strengthen it, respect it, honor it, follow it, trust it and express it; your life will work.

This may sound difficult but it not as challenging as it seems. It starts with becoming aware of yourself as a spirit, and that it has entered your being with your first breath. Once you recognize that as a spirit you carry holiness within you, make it a daily intention to honor that holiness of Spirit within with a few basic, unwavering decisions.

  1. Start your day with ten minutes of meditation. Decide what the most important thing for that day is for you, and then honor that one thing first, and not last.
  2. Remember to breathe. Take a deep breath before you think, speak, and act. Breath is spirit. Let it lead every day.
  3. Sing. Listen to your favorite music and sing along. Singing opens the heart where Spirit lives. Singing invites the Spirit within you to express itself.
  4. Dance. Even if it’s only two or three steps before you get in the car. To dance is to move with spirit and give up control.
  5. Move a lot and often. Practice QiGong. Take a walk. Stretch. Touch your toes. Hop on one foot then another. Keep active. Have you ever heard the expression, “The Spirit moved me?” Let it.
  6. Wonder. Let the inner child in you come out and play. Leonardo wondered about 100 things a day. Can you wonder about a few things yourself?
  7. Laugh. Laughter is the language of Spirit. If you can’t think of anything funny go to YouTube and look for funny videos. Laughter is a habit to be maintained if you want to live in the Spirit.
  8. Be grateful for everything. Say, “I’m grateful” at least ten times a day out loud.
  9. Ask for help. Reach out and allow yourself to receive from others and from life.
  10. Say yes to your intuition and follow it. Don’t push it away. Give it a place of respect and appreciation on your life.
