The choices made and actions undertaken based on the confused, disturbed and busy mind are always taken with fearfulness and selfish derivative.Feats done out of fear and selfishness are limited and conditioned according to and influenced by beliefs and on the approval and the needing to be recognized by others.Thus work carried by fear proves no benefit to self or for others,it is only superficial and fleeting.
The Heart acts based on its own integrity,independently,courageously,with wise discernment and without needing others’ approval and attention.It acts solely to do what is beneficial, good and asserts positive lasting growth for self and others.
We seek to be Loved from others…but we are already Love itself!
We seek for gifts from others because we want to feel special…but we are already gifts ourselves to make others special.
We seek to Love others…but we forget to Love ourselves First…
We are all Loved and Lovers…capable of receiving and giving love freely and unconditionally in this moment when we are fully aware of our Loving Presence…
When Love becomes the only law we follow in deep understanding,wisdom,and courage,we allow the authencity of life to be lived out.This authencity of living is fearless and balanced in facing adversities,hardships,difficulties as well as happy moments.Love is all that we are,have and sustained by in the Presence of Awareness.
I would like to share a personal glimpse of sheerblessedness while I was on a spiritual retreat in Samoa. Iwas in the Catholic Cathedral of Apia (capital of Samoa),sitting quietly meditating, when a little Samoan boy,probably not more than ten years old and still in schooluniform, walked into the cathedral and approached theVirgin Mary statue by the altar. He fell to his kneeswith his eyes transfixed, his hands clasped together,and he looked eye to eye at the statue, so intense inprayer. Tears flowed from my eyes to watch himcommunicate silently with his heart to something sodear and reverent. That was utter joy and a blessing forme to have witnessed a picture so delicate of a boy andhis sincere heart in prayer that I cannot erase this imagefrom my mind or from the tenderness of my heart.

When the eyes of our hearts open to loving-awareness,we will find miracles and blessings wherever we are.Whether the world is collapsing in uncertainties around us,we will only witness beauty and tenderness within the self!
