Full Moon uk

As the weather changes here in the UK from a very pleasant, sunny summer to a beautiful autumn freshness and changing colours in nature; I sit and wonder at "what is".   The world is so hard for many of our brothers and sisters and it can make us feel so sad and helpless at what little we can do to change their lives when our lives are so fortunate.  Being grateful is at least a start and compassion is a gift to all . Watching the programme last night with Brian Cox on TV was heartening.   Seeing how we all came from beginnings in Ethiopia and how we are therefore all related to one another regardless of colour, language, culture, religion further affirmation to the yoga creed that "we are all one".   I trust that people now have learnt to see beyond the propaganda and nationalistic hype that abounds in all the media and to listen rather to their hearts.  People are the same and have the same basic needs. When these are not met then some will eventually become what is termed 'extreme'.   How would we re-act if we had their lives, I wonder?  Practise tolerance and kindness and be forgiving of those who cannot do this anymore after years of abuse and terror.   If we join them in their hatred then there is no end except extinction.  
I wish you all courage to stay firm in the conviction  that all will be well and we do not need to strive to compete or defend ourselves.  We are protected and we are eternal.  Our actions will be judged and karma will balance all in time.
