When I bring my attention fully into the present, into the now, then I can see that each and every moment contains a choiceThe choice is always between love and something unloving from the past come back to be healed.  

Get it? 

As I keep my commitment to being mindful it’s possible for me to choose love more often and that brings me into the NOW moment where abundance, healing, creativity, clarity and all the gifts of Love are present. As I’m mindful of the choices I make, I’m also mindful of their outcomes.  Now that I’m mindful, when I choose fear, anger or some other form of suffering, I can see that it was my choice. 

Right then, in that moment of knowing that it was my choice, is another opportunity for me to choose love and forgive myself. I witness that love has an intelligence all of its own. 

Compassion makes every moment of my life a work of art and this unlocks the Joy!

In their book EMBRACING THE BELOVED: Relationship as a Path of Awakening, Stephen & Ondrea Levine write, “Those who suppress the ego instead of just letting it recede into the heart make the same merciless error in judgment as those who, attempting to cure serious illness, believe they must ‘filter out all negative thoughts’ in order to be healed … They do not recognize that what leaves the ‘negative residue’ is not the thought, no matter how dark or fearful, but the negative reaction (holding), as opposed to the healing response (letting go), to that moment. That a ‘positive’ thought grasped is less healing than a ‘negative’ one met with mercy.”

Today I make a commitment to be mindful as part of my daily spiritual practice of Love, Compassion and gratitude.

I meet any dark and fearful thoughts with mercy. In this way my moment to moment spiritual practice is healing and I share the benefit with all beings because I am one with them.  That makes every day a great day to be alive!

This is what I call being truly helpful.
