LIFE IS A JOURNEY

"The journey of a thousand miles begins beneath one's feet." --Lao Tzu
"We are seasoned travelers of the labryinth.  Losing our way and finding 
our way.  Traveling on the beaten path and the road less traveled. 
Eventually finding our way home to the place of spiritual rest and fulfillment.'

''I shall pass through this world but once. Any good thing therefore that I can do, any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again. '' William Penn

Kindness is LOVE. What the world needs now is kindness.

How easily is it done? How instantaneously it acts. How infallibly it is remembered. How superabundantly it pays itself back. There is a difference between trying to please and giving pleasure. Give pleasuire. Lose no chance of giving pleasure. For that is the ceaseless and anonymous triumph of a loving spirit (Henry Drummond).

These are some of behaviors that represent Acts of Kindness: Benevolent, Compassionate, Charitable, Tender, Friendly. Are there others you think of? What does kindness mean to you? What does it feel like when you are being kind? Reflect on a loving experience when someone was kind to you? Who was the person? Where did it happen? When did it occur? What did they do? How did you this act of kindness make you feel?

During the course of the week, be mindful of kindness. Keep a journal on acts of kindness displayed to you and acts of kindness displayed by you. How did these acts inspire you, uplift you and make your more loving?

Kindness is a virtue of LOVE. A quote by Robert Clancy, "If you want to know what Heaven feels likejust touch someone's heart". Kindness is authentic and costs nothing. It is being compassionate, considerate, respectful, doing a good deed. What does Kindness mean to you?  What does it mean to treat yourself and others with Kindness? What qualities and behaviors exemplify kindness? What does it feel like? What does it look like?  Think about these questions. Pick one of the qualities that reflect your meaning of kindness and demonstrate this to yourself and others. How does this make you feel?

Patience is a virtue of LOVE. Self-inquiry is an opportunity for self-discovery. Take the time to reflect on the following questions.  When we are patient we are calm, not rushed and self-composed.
What does patience mean to you? Who is the most patient person that you admire? Why is this so? What must you overcome to be patient? 
Throughout the day, practice being patient. What thoughts do you have when you are being patient? How do you feel when you are trying to be patient? You may discover that you are less reactive, listen more and become more content.  Try this:  When you are engaging in a conversation with someone, make eye contact, do not interrupt them, listen to what they are saying. Show compassion. Most importantly, be patient with yourself and see where it takes you.

Unselfishness is a virtue of LOVE.  Henry Drummond contends, “The only greatness is unselfish love. There is no happiness in having or getting but only in giving. And half the world is on the wrong scent in the pursuit of happiness. They think it consists of having and getting and in being served by others. It consists of giving and serving others." When we do things in the spirit of LOVE, we feel fulfilled. In honoring ourselves, we are able to give and receive love. What we reflect in our world comes back to us. Respect and honor yourself.  Forgive yourself and others and let go of resentments and past hurts. Give to others in simple ways... a smile, a good thought, a helping hand. Be compassionate with yourself and others and feel your heart open with LOVE. You become more of who you truly are...your natural state of being.

GENEROSITY is a virtue of  LOVE.  "Being kind, attentive and honest in dealing with others, offering praise where it is due, giving comfort and advice where they are needed, and simply sharing one's time with someone-all these are forms of generosity, and they do not require any particular level of material wealth." -Dalai Lama. Generosity of spirit is an action of freely and frequently giving to others. Feelings of envy and covetousness hinges on unworthiness and distracts us from being true to ourselves. Pay attention to yourself and examine thoughts that distract you from being generous. Be attentive to others. How does generosity enhance your relationship with yourself and others and make you more loving and loveable?

Courtesy is a viture of LOVEAccording to Henry Drummond, "This is love in society in relation to etiquette. Love doth not behave itself unseemly. The one secret of politeness is to love'.  It means doing things gently, with love." During the course of the week, practice being courteous to yourself. Make it a priority to treat yourself well. Stay consciously aware and alert to how you treat yourself and shift your feelings and actions immediately when you are discourteous. Take note of how this makes you feel about yourself. Practice until this becomes your natural state of being. My book, "Living in the Spirit of Love: Our Natural State of Being," offers a detailed Love Mastery Devotion Exercise" to help you strengthen and embody the practice of love in your lifeThe  extent that you highly regard yourself is the extent that you can exhibit this to others. This also teach others how to treat you.

How better can we love? LOVE is not easily provoked.  Good Temper is an ingredient of Love. Good Temper means one maintains a calm disposition and reframe from being jealous, deceptive, angry, self-righteous and cruel to yourself and others. Negative emotions drain our energy and attracts more of the same. Rise above and strengthen your practice of love by becoming  alert and consciously aware of your thoughts, feelings and actions. Shift your mood by interrupting these thoughts and put the best construction on every action: Surplant negativity with gratitude. Practice stillness and listen to to your intuitive guidance. Reach out and hlep someone in need.  Embrace the power within and live with a guilessness heart. See where this takes you!

Humility is one of the ingrendients in Henry Drummond's Spectrum of Love, The Wholistic Model of Love.. By being humble, we become more empathic, listen to to others, and accept help from others when needed. We release pride and arrogance. Take an interest in others. Practice not only listening, but hearing what others are really saying.  If you help someone, do so privately. Drummond says, "Love hides even from itself". Humility helps us live in harmony with ourself and others.  Practice being humble and see where it takes you.

Real happiness is being your best self and fulfilling your purpose. Happiness is creating the life you deserve through making choices aligned with your highest good. What are some of your memorable and happiest moments? Describe them in detail? How were you feeling? Who was there? What were you being? How were others responding in these moments? How did these moments open your heart? Remember to remember that your true and natural self is LOVE.

The power that lies within frees you from external forces that diminish your capacity to love. Sustain the change with practice (mental alertness and monitoring your thoughts, feelings and actions). Then express yourself in a different way, which is self-reinforcing. What would you be willing to overcome so that you could be better? What habits would you like to discard? How can you best invest your energy to be your best self?
