love’s amazement

1-DSC03202

You just never know, who in the crowd, standing beside you in line or passing you in the street, might be raised in spirit, or even lifted from despair, by the kindness in your glance or the comfort of your smile. But they may never forget…..  The Universe….(TUT)

love never gets old, never falls away, never forgets, never hates…..when we know love, we forget our unlived moments….we see it in the faces of strangers and it fuses our hearts together……

Practicing immeasurable compassion involves letting go of our attachment, leading us to a pure compassion untainted by selfish concerns. Meditating on someone else’s predicament and generating a strong feeling of compassion can lead us into visualizing that they find relief, comfort, joy and an uplifted spirit. When we continue to practice this we find ourselves desiring to alleviate the suffering of others.  This exercise helps us to remain in a state of unrestricted and objectless compassion all the time…..Thomas Merton

falling deeply

As adults, we need to become newly aware of the love that has infused our lives all along, to turn our attention to it afresh with the eyes of a child. To do so is to become conscious of the tremendous capacity for love that even now permeates our being—to open to it, to be healed by its life-giving energy, and to participate in its power to renew our world. We can awaken to the deepest goodness in ourselves and others. We can learn to recognize and commune with the blessings that have always been pouring forth…….John Makransky

  1. Yes……………our guarantee of eternal life is in the one we live beyond – in the hearts, eyes, and stories of those we’ve touched. Let us gather all together in the memory of nothing more than love. Let us see (let us SEE)……… ~ Always, Blue, you reach into the deepest parts of all I know. ~ Bobbie

    • and you as well….your heart sings what you know….I wish we didn’t use the word ‘love’ so often….to keep it special….deep, unrelenting in its gaze….may the song in your heart be special today Bobbie….
