Every Day I Meditate. On LovingKindness and Compassion.
“In generosity and helping others: be like the river
In compassion and grace: be like the sun”.
Rumi teaches us that our generosity and help to others should be like the river, ever flowing. Unconditional generosity, giving, and helping others is from a heart of unconditional lovingkindness.
“If one is to be a true cultivator of the Way,
One will not see the wrongs of the world.
In seeing other people’s faults,
We ourselves then commit a fault;
In considering others but not ourselves in fault
Ourselves are automatically in fault.
As long as we eliminate any inclination to see faults,
Defilements will then be smashed, removed and destroyed;
Without neither hatred nor craving bothering our mind,
We can rest in peace with both legs relaxingly stretched out.”
Only by forgoing anger, and hatred and offering forgiveness can we free ourselves, and be truly liberated.
