As we come to the last day of Diwali for 2012 we stay in the light amidst all the darkness arising in the world. Love is all there is and even in conflict we do not take sides - we stay peaceful so that our peace spreads to others and their hate and suffering is absorbed by our love. Difficult as this seems in dire situations we can be inspired by others who have chosen this path even when they have suffered terribly at the hands of others. They have acknowledged that it is always ignorance that causes others to behave less than their true potential. How can you not forgive a child who has yet to learn right from wrong?
Let us hope many more humans chose to grow up sooner rather than later!
Please consider adding the Om Shanti Shanti Shanti Om Peace Peace Peace chant/mantra to your daily meditation practise up to and including the winter solstice on 21st December 2012.
Be a Light in the World
