A Wise Moment… A Soul Moment

When the pressure of all life’s commitments may feel overwhelming, can you get creative with a wise moment… a pause, a remembering to become conscious of the breath, to feel your body, to connect to something other than the stress and busyness?  to the spontaneous sweetness, the ever present stillness, the precious present moment where everything just is? full and yet empty…

There is a kindness that dwells deep down in things; it presides everywhere,
often in the places we least expect.
The world can seem harsh and negative, yet if we remain generous and patient,
kindness inevitably reveals itself.
Something deep in the human soul seems to depend on the presence of kindness;
something instinctive in us expects it, and once we sense it
we are able to trust and open ourselves.

The Path
If anybody asks you what the Path is about,
Its about Generosity; Its about Morality; Its about Concentration
Its about gaining insight through focused self-observation
Its about the cultivation of subjective states of compassion and love based on insight
And its about translating that compassion and love into action in the real world.
