Ah world, what lessons you prepare for us ……..Mary Oliver
1. Life is precious
When we appreciate our life, focusing on what we do have and not on our problems or lack of, we can understand and deepen our gratefulness each day.
When we know and trust that everything changes and constantly evolves, we can be at peace with our life in the good situations and the bad. Remember, no matter where you are, “This too shall pass.”
In Buddhism Samsara is sometimes thought of as a circumstance or an illusion or the cycle of death and rebirth to which life in the material world is bound. When we understand that everyone has suffering in their life, we can learn to let go of the illusion that we need to be perfect or everyone else is perfect and only we suffer.
Each journey is different and when we understand this, we can have compassion and patience for those around us and let go of our expectations and pressure.
Becoming responsible in our life for all our thoughts, beliefs and actions. What we take from ourselves or others will be taken from us, what we give to ourselves and others will be given to us. Becoming aware of our intentions and choices in life will keep us present.
